I’m trying to create a new image gallery within a page. I followed the tutorial here http://www.kriesi.at/themes/flashlight/video-tutorial/
Here’s what I’m doing:
1. Create new page
2. Give page a name
3. Add placeholder text to content area
4. Upload images to gallery section
5. Publish and preview page
Only the first image loads into the gallery and, when I view the page, I can’t see any of the other images that I uploaded using the admin. Does anyone have any ideas on this please?May 2, 2013 at 3:19 pm #116956
With the new gallery functionality you need to add each image to the gallery section (so not all at once). So click on Add Image to Slideshow and then repeat for each image you want to add.
It should look something like this with multiple images added in:
Note I’ve selected the 3 column gallery option as well to show the images in a 3 column grid below the content.

Thanks for the reply Devin. I added each photo one at a time by choosing ‘Add to slideshow’, each item showed a green tick at the side of it and was displayed in a list [just like the example you showed], but it still doesn’t work I’m afraid.
Do you have any ideas what could be wrong please?May 3, 2013 at 9:24 am #116958
Have you set autorotation to some number ?
Have you selected the type of gallery?

Everything is working fine when i just tested it.

Everything looks as though it’s set up correctly. As I said, I followed the video tutorial to make a three column grid layout but with no joy – here’s a screen grab of the WP admin for the page: http://www.reflection-creations.co.uk/1.jpg

Does that help at all?May 3, 2013 at 2:58 pm #116960
You are using version 1.0 of Flashlight while the current version is 2.3 , which certainly is the reason for why things are not working.
Please log into themeforest.net using the account you’ve purchased the theme under and download the latest update. Please be aware that the update will overwrite every single theme file including custom.css. The best way to upgrade the theme would be via ftp, renaming your current flashlight theme folder on your server to ‘flashlight2’ and then upload the newest version of the theme as ‘flashlight’. Afterwards you may delete the renamed flashlight2 folder or keep it around, but that’s the moment when you can log into the Admin backend and all should be updated.
