    Hi,

    How can I create a Photo Gallery page with in the theme Shoutbox?

    I’m also having trouble removing the white banner in my header image, for the life of me can’t get it fixed.

    Please help on both accounts.

    Hi ticktacs,

    To create a photo gallery, you can either use WordPress’ default gallery option (see instructions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/The_WordPress_Gallery) or you can use a plugin.

    Before we can tell you how to remove the white banner on the header image, we would need to see the page or at least a screenshot.

    Regards,

    Mya

    Hi,

    That’s some wild css you got there! You’re missing a stylesheet I think -> <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”http://freshtide.com/web_design/wp-content/themes/theme1048/style.css” type=”text/css” media=”screen”> , doesn’t exist, Do you want to remove Fresh TIde or Print Design 13?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Hi Mya,

    Thanks for your response, go to http://www.jemalee.com.au you will see the white band above the banner image, this band pushes the banner image into the menu. I really want to fix it – it just looks like poo. So would LOVE your help, so thank you! :)

    Hi Nick, thanks for yours too! Really i’m missing a stylesheet? See the above link to see my sight (it is run through another WP – so you can also see it at http://oidutsphotography.com/jl/) I am not sure what you are talking about remove Fresh Tide or Print Design 13. Freshtide is another company name and I’m not sure what Print Design 13 is. Would be great if you could help though!

    Thank you to you both!

    Cheers

    One other little question: i installed a Plugin to set up photo gallery’s NxtGen Gallery Plugin…. and I have also set up a static web page with general images for readers to download (they are wallpapers) but now when you click on the link it opens an image slideshow? Do you know how to remove this slide show? You can visit the page I am referring to at http://oidutsphotography.com/jl/wallpapers/

    Thank you again for your help!

    Hi,

    When you insert the link for each image find this this code

    rel="lightbox[auto_group1]"

    Remove it.

    Regards,

    Thanks Ismael, but I couldn’t find that coding anywhere. not on the HTML of the page itself of in the CSS stylesheets?

    Can you please guide me where to go.

    Thanks!

    If you want to lose the white band at the bottom of your logo image too, you can add this to Nick’s fix:

    #top .logo {

    margin-left: -20px;

    margin-bottom: -15px;

    }

    If you want to keep a bit of white so it looks more even, use -9px for the bottom margin.

    .Hi,

    That’s the problem with DreamWeaver, and I been using it since v2 came out – it’s awkward to use it with WordPress, forcing developers or enthusiasts to work outside WordPress as you have done with the Wall Paper page.

    What you are lacking is a plugin to allow you to instantly create a new content type ‘Wall Paper’ as well as automatically create an archive and single page for wall paper, with its own taxonomy (cities) , and custom meta boxes for the specific fields relevant to wall papers (screen size).

    If you develop with WordPress regularly, consider investing $30 to get Easy Custom Content Types premium plugin from Code Canyon.

    The best part, is if you are making something for a client, the plugin will generate all the code, then you can disable the plugin, stick the code into the functions.php file, and you look like a genius for building a custom WordPress wallpaper component in under an hour. (I am not affiliated with the content type plugin developer, just use ECCT on every project personally.)

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Thanks for your help Nick. I had a look at that plugin, I’m not really down with the lingo as yet as I am all self taught but picking it up quickly I opted to just get a basic Table Plugin at this stage until I know more about Post Types, Taxonomies and Metaboxes. However when i insert a new table on this page: http://oidutsphotography.com/jl/photos/ it comes up with thin lines around it the same as the table i brought over from Dreamweaver? Do you know how to fix this ??? I currently have the border set to – ’0′, but doesn’t change anything, and then I also updated the table to have white border at border ’1′ but can’t get it to disappear.

    Can i just say your help as been amazing thank you!!!!

    Also any idea on how I can get the extra pop up window/slideshow box to not appear when you click on the image on this page: http://oidutsphotography.com/jl/photos/canada-new/

    I currently have been using the NextGen Image Gallery Plugin to make the slideshow but it comes up with two slideshows when you click on the thumbnail…. rather annoying. If you could help here that would be awesome too!

    Thank you again!

    :)

    Hi,

    1) That is border thickness. You are not setting it specifically to 0 so thats the way it comes out. In Dreamweaver if you click on insert > table , the default will show border thickness 1, and cell padding and cell spacing as empty. if you change them all to 0, and do that every time you add a table , this problem will not occur.

    2) As for the gallery, I don’t use NextGen but after a brief look, what is happening is that you are using Nextgen (1st time click thumbnail) then when you click inside NextGen the prettyPhoto (which is still there ‘behind’ NextGen all along) comes up.. etc..

    To handle this I suggest you go to http://forums.no-margin-for-errors.com/ the lightbox prettyPhoto forum. They have a few thousand regular users and its where I go when I am stumped. They are good people and will tell you the correct way to do this with no learning curve.

    I am going to close the ticket, since its the biggest one open, but please open a new one if you need a hand.

    Thanks,

    Nick
