Yes it did thanks! Is there a way to simply update images in the media library? Currently if I make a change to an image in Photoshop, then add it to the media library with the same file name it had before, it makes a duplicate rather than replaces it which makes it confusing to know which is which.
Okay, I will send an email to your gmail address so you can login to my wp site in progress. Thanks!!
Also, I am using the 4 Column Portfolio. I have made all my images the same height and I don’t want them to be scaled differently when viewed. They look great when they are in a row of thumbnails, but when you click on one, it scales just too large and the user then has to scroll to view the whole image. I thought that by making them all the same height in pixels I could avoid that.
Oh, I see what you mean (sort of). When I do that, the catalog fills the screen and my site “disappears” to the user. What I really mean is that I want the catalog site to fill the body area of the post…. so it sort of loads like an i frame.
I’m just a wee little newbie, so I just placed the image into the body of the post and then added a link URL to it. Not sure exactly where I would implement what you mentioned.
Sorry for the delay in responding. I think I got the slideshow all figured out. So my next question is, Is there a way to have another webpage load directly into one of my wp pages? I have a catalog of products that I want people to search through. I currently have it set up as an image that the user clicks on, and a new page loads separately, but it would be ideal to have it load directly into my own site rather than as a new window that pops up.
Also, I created some custom icons, saved as png and placed them in the folder with the other icons (iconbox folder), but when I try and replace the html with my filenames, the images won’t load. I see a reference in your documentation that they “will appear in the dropdown menu of the visual shortcode generator” but I don’t know what that is. I see a button in the visual editor that says “Insert Shortcode”, but when I click it, nothing happens.
Okay, I have most everything figured out except for the home page. I want it to function as the demo does. Is it even possible to have the big background slider rotate between say 3 different images, and for each image, some text appears with it? For example, right now I have the “landing page example” as my home page and I’m trying to edit it. Perhaps this is the wrong template to use?? It shows an image of hot air balloons, and some text that reads “Evoke Emotions”. I can see how the image is replaced, but cannot find any reference anywhere to that type or how to change it.
Okay, let’s start with a simple one. For the content slider, is there any way to prevent it from automatically sliding unless the user clicks on the number buttons? Or at least to increase the timing between each one? And, what is the ideal image size for the large image on the landing page example. Is it 960 x 360?
Well I imported the dummy data, and it warned me that it would overwrite, and it DID. The documentation is sparse indeed. I think I’m going to cry now.
Well, I am concerned that if I do that it will overwrite what I already have in there. You see I previously had built a wordpress.com site using Twenty Eleven, and I brought that over first, then applied Flagship, so I’m afraid I’ll lose all my data and images.
I am also trying to figure out how that slider even works. Is it only visible when the visitor first comes to the page, and then after that I must chose a static image? What I really want is a series of full width images (maybe just 3-4), and then have type and perhaps another, close-cropped image animate over them as I see in the live preview.
I am also trying to figure out how to get my portfolio page to match the live preview, where I can have four columns, and then when an image is selected, it appears larger, with descriptive type to the right, and forward/back/x buttons to scroll through them.
Sorry, I’m a long time print designer struggling to learn web design and it’s just so hard to get my head around it. : )
