    Hi, Awesome theme, I love it

    Here is my question

    Im trying to add a Location where a picture was taken in the form of the tab to the EXIF information tooltip.

    I was going to use a Northing and Easting like so :

    Location : 53.107217,-2.113038

    I would like to display it in the EXIF tooltip, but im struggling a little, Ive looked in the helper-slideshow.php and found the &showmeta function but im struggling on how to call it or what META to use in lightroom.

    I can see in lightroom there is a META called “sublocation” so ive tried to add it that way and it fails to show in the tooltip

    Here is a picture i knocked up in Photoshop what im trying to do (Picture paints a thousand words) >> http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v289/xgodsavethequeen/addlocation.jpg

    I would love to have the 53.107217,-2.113038 linkable to Google Maps as well but that’s another task that I would do at a later date ;-)

    Any help or pointers in the right direction, or maybe advice to achieve adding the location where the picture was taken is much appreciated !!


    I would edit my post but it seems to be disabled.

    Anyway, I think I found all the edit locations in the helper-slideshow.php I just copied some of the other calls.

    What im strugaling with is how the location is called in the image META

    I think this is how its called in the image

    <rdf:Description rdf:about=””
    <Iptc4xmpCore:Location>IMAGE LOCATION HERE</Iptc4xmpCore:Location>

    im trying to call the location like so

    if($exif[‘location’]) $meta .= “<li class=’exif-location’><span>”.$exif[‘location’][0].”:</span> “.$exif[‘location’][1].””;

    I’ve also added the relevant information to the function avia_exif_data and default.po (lang file)

    Ill keep trying, im persistent ;-)

    Best regards,



    ahhh scary !! lmao

    looks to complex for me ;-)

    That tutorial only supports the wordpress gallery upload feature and 1 image at a time too, but cheers… maybe ask the theme developer to consider adding this feature to the next update ;-)

    Would help us photographers pinpointing locations where the picture was taken :-)




    I’ll ask Kriesi to look into it but I can’t promise that he’ll add this feature because you’re the first one who requests it.




    Does he do custom work ?

    I wouldn’t mind a quote then to get this feature added to the theme if possible.. I would prefer it adding to the theme, so as not to mess up the WP updates when there rolled out.

    I do landscape photography and it would be great to be able to “Map” where my pictures were taken from the pictures Lat+Long built into the images META data.

    Other than that I will just have to manually add a Grid Reference to the image description I think

    But thanks for forwarding it to Kresi ;-)


    Hi xGSTQ,

    As far as I know Kriesi does not do any freelance/custom work any more and only focuses on themes. I like the idea too however so I’ll put in my two cents of it being a good idea as well :)
