I am trying to find a way to link somehow (?using html) an image in a flexible gallery or background gallery to its own product page in woocommerce. I see there is a way to link somehow using an attachment post URL’ with a woocommerce product but I can’t seem to make it work if indeed it is supposed to link to a woocommerce product.
I realize there may be a simple solution to this I can’t find it after google searches and searching on this forum. Thanks and I apologize if this is another dumb question.

Can you show an example from the demo or your own site of what you are thinking? The regular WooCommerce products link to their own product page by default but the individual portfolio items aren’t capable of accepting custom links.

Thanks for your reply. The woocommerce product linking (from a regular image in a flashlight gallery) doesn/t seem to work. However I have discovered I can make a regular html link in the title/caption which is visible when the image is displayed as a thumbnail in the flexible gallery and it seems to work.
Ideally I would like two things:
1.Some linking of an image to its respective product page (I’m a photographer and I sell prints) when the image is in a background slider gallery – the title & caption disappear on mouseover and clicking on the actual image does nothing. (Also would like the thumbnails in the background slider keep the correct proportions… but that’s another issue.)
On that note before I purchased this theme (and it is a great theme – thanks!) I did find that a lightbox variant “Foobox”is capable of accepting html in the caption for direct links… Foobox works well apparently with ‘justified image grid’ – a wordpress plugin – but I doubt that’s going to work with Flashlight… Going out on a tangent here have you seen Isotope image display? That would be awesome in a kriesi theme like flashlight! I guess thats going to create a whole new suite of problems though.

Hi – found the solution myself for linking from a caption in a gallery. Seems to work fine now but it previously wasn’t when I posted this for some reason…
Would still possibly like to make a link in a prettyphoto box but that can probably wait for now…

Glad you found a fix that works for you :)
Let us know if you have any other questions or issues.

Not sure why but I am encountering the same problem as before – the title/caption of the background thumbnails moves upwards and disappears as soon as you take the cursor away from the thumbnail, thus preventing me clicking on a hyperlink that I’ve made in the caption…
Is there any way of changing the behaviour of the caption of the thumbnail so that it stays visible and does not move for a period of time after a thumbnail is clicked?
This wasn’t a problem recently but it seems to have recurred…maybe it is something to do with the settings of the background slider but I’ve changed a few things and it doesn’t seem to help…
Thanks for your help!!!

Yes I am looking for a change to the background slider thumbnail caption. Currently the caption appears on mouseover of the the thumbnail but disappears when the mouse is moved off. I would like the caption to stay for 5 seconds UNLESS the mouse is moved to another thumbnail and then it will be replaced by that thumbnail’s caption.. Or alternatively the caption could be displayed on clicking on the thumbnail and only disappears when either the main image or another thumbnail is clicked… I think either of these two options will allow me to hyperlink to another page from the caption, which is what I’d really like to do.
If this can’t be done I will need to change all my galleries to the flexible grid gallery which is something I would prefer not to do if possible – would like my images displayed in the background slider…
I am hoping there is a fix for this???
Thanks in advance again if you can help here…

A special effect this involved and time consuming, in my opinion is outside the scope of the support team. Your best bet is to hire a freelancer for something like that for two hours probably with testing.
NickApril 24, 2013 at 11:35 am #113619
OK can anyone here do it? I am prepared to go down that path..
MApril 24, 2013 at 4:43 pm #113620
Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound like I was hitting you up for some cash. I will let the other team members know but if I were you, I would search on either a jquery showcase site or a site with lots of themes that have effects on portfolio thumbnails, till you find something nearly identical, because its much easier to adapt and modify something then to create an effect like that.
NickApril 24, 2013 at 7:36 pm #113621
I will be away for a week from today, so I won’t be able to proceed on this until I get back in any case. I understand it is not a pure support topic as the theme works fine, I just would like it modified. I’ll have a look at jquery sites when I get back but am happy for someone to freelance on this. I would like the captions to behave in the way outlined above… and while we are there it would also be good if the thumbnails could keep their original proportions rather than square – if that can be possible.

You can check somewhere like odesk or maybe codeable.io for a freelancer to do the customization.
As for the the other issue, make a new topic for it when you get back. I’m going to close this one for now so we don’t get off the main topic and to keep things easier for searching/indexing.
The topic ‘Linking Photos to specific product pages’ is closed to new replies.
