NEXTGen Gallery thumbnails "smushed" when inserted onto page.
AnonymousMay 31, 2011 at 9:22 pm #1074
I’ve just downloaded the Graphene Theme and NextGen Gallery in the past week so I believe I have pretty current versions. When I added a gallery to a page via
[nggallery id=1]it crams the thumbnails together like it is being forced within a specific width (see http://masalafusiondance.com/?page_id=21). I’ve resized the thumbnails and reloaded the gallery via the NextGen Gallery Options/Thumbnails but nothing seems to fix it.
Although I’m pretty new to WordPress, I’ve done a pretty thorough search on this forum as well as Google with no success. Before I went all through the .css files looking for a set width (and afraid I’ll mess up more than I’ll fix) I was wondering if anyone ran into this and/or had suggestions. Thanks for your time and your hard work on this theme.Admin
You’re right. Prior to the fix I tested in Safari and it worked just fine.
I didn’t get it to work with this custom code (but I also didn’t refresh my cache either so it might have worked.) I did get it to work when I added the auto width to the .ngg-gallery-thumbnail img setting. I placed the new code within the nggallery.css file instead of the Custom CSS option.
Thanks for the quick response and great theme. Time to hit the Donate button.Admin
I am having the same problem here, http://www.sergentandson.com only when using IE8. The thumbnails in the galleries all smash together. I have tried adding the width; auto; code as suggested both in the custom css through the dashboard and in the nggallery.css file under both .ngg-gallery-thumbnail img and the .ngg-gallery-thumbnail settings. but it continues to load the thumbs squished even after clearing my cache. IE8 is garbage but I realize alot of people use it.
thanks in advance for any further advice and for creating such a great theme.
Edit – wow: nevermind. I used “width; auto;” instead of “width: auto;” apparently semicolons and colons are not interchangeable. Thanks anyway.
I am not having a problem with the thumbnails per se; I am having problems using different images for the featured image. The featured image for the main page is displayed on every other page, even if a different one is selected. I use Firefox for editing, since there have always been issues with IE. skakeyourfist.com is where the site is located. Thanks.ModMod
But the header image is different from the featured image. The header image shows up behind the site title and description at the top of each page/post. The featured image refers to any image within a post. Even if you have 100 images in a post, the last one can be the featured image.
