    Is there a way to place a title and/or caption within a lightbox window (along the bottom perhaps)? Thanks!

    #51750

    Further to the above… when I looked at the documentation for “prettyPhoto” lightbox, there is definitely an option to have text within the lightbox window. Is this something that is just “turned off” with this theme? Any ideas on how I can get this working?

    Hey,

    (officially) it’s not possible at the moment, however an user posted a tweaked javascript code here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/pretty-photo-does-not-show-description#post-25464

    Dude, I’m also wondering if I can extend prettyPhoto to use its option of showing a slideshow, not just a second image… any plans in the works or ideas on how to do this within a WordPress site? Or is it already possible associating a full gallery?

    You can use nextgen gallery: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/ and “connect” or link it to prettyphoto by following the instructions here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/nextgen-slideshow-conflict-with-customjs#post-14743

    Thanks Dude. I’m not sure how to ‘connect it’ (NextGen Gallery) to individual portfolio posts using Display Preview Image Options. To clarify: There are several “case studies” I want to show in my portfolio. Each “case study” is an individual wordpress Post. Using the Display Preview Image Options for each post, that means I can have one “Hero Shot” for both Portfolio page (thumbnail image) and individual Post page (medium image) of that case study, and perhaps one more image or video (full-scale image or video) when you click on the “Hero Shot” (medium image).

    I want to have all of the “case studies” thumbnails and titles on one Portfolio page as shown here: http://tinyurl.com/3w3s46v. Nothing new there, except I need to edit that to show only titles (how do I do that?).

    When you click each “case study” it will then take you to the individual Post. I then want to use Pretty Photo when you click on the “Hero Shot” (medium image) at the top of the Post to open up a slideshow for that specific case study… for example, click on the pizza package. When you get to the Post, I’d like to click on that “Hero Shot” (medium image) to open up a slideshow in Pretty Photo with several images which are ONLY for that specific Post, not for other Posts or Pages or the Portfolio page. In other words, open up a whole gallery of images (folder of images?) Not just the one “full scale” image. How can I do this?

    Thank you!!!

    Hey raziegler,

    to remove the text below your images from your portfolio replace

    $preview = kriesi_build_image(array('url'=>$preview,
    'height'=> '124',
    'width'=> '280',
    'lightbox'=>$lightbox,
    'link'=>$link,
    'link_url'=>$link_url
    ));

    if ($boxnumber == 1) echo '<div class="entry portfolio_entry">'; ?>

    <div class="box box_small box<?php echo $boxnumber; ?>">

    <?php echo $preview; // echo the preview image ?>

    <h3 id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>"><a href="<?php echo get_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3>
    <?php the_excerpt(); // small excerpt of the post content ?>

    <a href="<?php echo get_permalink(); ?>" class="more-link">Read more</a>

    </div>

    in your template_portfolio.php by

    $preview = kriesi_build_image(array('url'=>$preview,
    'uri_only'=>true,
    'height'=> '124',
    'width'=> '280',
    ));

    if ($boxnumber == 1) echo '<div class="entry portfolio_entry">'; ?>

    <div class="box box_small box<?php echo $boxnumber; ?>">

    <a href="<?php echo get_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: <?php the_title(); ?>">
    <img src="<?php echo $preview ?>" />
    </a>

    <h3 id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>"><a href="<?php echo get_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link: <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3>

    </div>

    This should do the trick hopefully.

    I really can´t believe that have there an option to have description and caption within the lightbox window and the theme don´t use it .

    Is ask to much to rewrite some file and put on download to update this premium theme?

    Is possible solved this problem a.s.a.p. here or via theme forest?

    If i mess the code with this ‘unofficial’ code and put out of order my site?

    Hi,

    the solutions we provide through this support forum count as official solutions to the issues users experience. You could say it is “unofficial code” and we’d have to agree, but we’re here to help you to make it work. If there is a popular demand we’ll ask Kriesi to include such options in future releases, though it can take some time for this to happen since there are dozens of requests.

    When a modification doesn’t work you can always download the untouched theme again from ThemeForest for free, you won’t lose any data by doing this.
