Firstly I’d like to say what a fantastic theme this is. It’s working beautifully.
The only issue I’m encountering is with woocommerce, but not because of a problem as such, just because I can’t configure it to do what I need. I was hoping someone could help me figure out whether it’s possible?
Here’s what I need:
1) A ‘shop’ page listing different galleries.
2) Each gallery may contain 100’s of photos.
3) Each photo needs to be purchasable in multiple sizes.
So my users need to be able to look through galleries of lots of photos, and they need to be able to add photos (in varying sizes) to the cart as they go.
Does this sound do-able? Uploading hundreds of photos individually as ‘products’ is not really an option here. I think I need to be able to integrate woocommerce into the Flashlight galleries.
Thanks in advance.

as far as I know you need to create a product for each image. The sizes can be handled with variations though. I think a better solution would be to use Nextgen Gallery: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/ and (Purchase code hidden if logged out) – (Purchase code hidden if logged out) – (Purchase code hidden if logged out) ?ap_id=Dude_Kriesi”>WP eStore because estore offers an integration feature: http://bit.ly/yiGSpsFebruary 6, 2012 at 8:34 pm #62849
Thanks for the tip. I did have a play around with Nextgen but it didn’t seem to integrate with Flashlight very well. Mouseovers were causing thumbnails to jump around and clicking images was causing both Nextgen & Flashlight to open the image full size similtaneously.
Are there any guidelines for using Nextgen and Flashlight together?

Yes. On the nextgen gallery option page go to the “Gallery” tab and select “thumbnails” instead of “slideshow” and deactivate “use slideshow” checkbox and ajax navigation. In the “Effect” option tab use the custom effect option and enter following code in the textbox below:
The thumbnail hover effect may be a css issue – can you post a link please?February 14, 2012 at 10:49 am #62851
Those settings have helped, thank you.
You can see the mouseover issues I’m having at the following URL:

try to add following code to css/custom.css:
border: none !important;

Thanks, that’s stopped the thumbnails moving about. I’m still struggling though with seemlingly simple things like making the thumbnails bigger. I change the setting and they stay the same, it’s very frustrating.
I really wish Flashlight was easier to use with ecommerce. I want to use it but it’s very important that ecommerce works for me.February 20, 2012 at 8:05 am #62854
Maybe you need to regenerate the thumbnails: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ – otherwise the changes won’t take any effect.
