Gallery
is packed with
loads of cool features like a jQuery slide hover effect on
thumbnails
, lazyloading for
thumbnails
(great if using a lot of
thumbnails

gallery

If you’d like an endless wall of thumbnails, LazyLoad allows you to show as many posts on the homepage as you’d like, allowing your users to scroll endlessly down the page without having to load hundreds of images right away. This effect mimics “endless scroll.”

Usage/Installation

To use the Gallery
Theme
, you will need to follow these installation instructions:

  1. Download the latest version of
    Thematic
    .
  2. Download the latest version of the Gallery
    WordPress

    theme
    .
  3. Unzip and upload both themes to your “wp-content/themes/” directory.
  4. In
    WordPress
    , go to “Appearance > Themes” and activate the “Gallery”
    theme
    .
  5. To change the number of items displayed on the home page, go to“Settings > Reading” and change “Blog pages show at most” to 28 (4rows) or 35 (5 rows) or more for the LazyLoad plugin to work its magic. LazyLoader will automatically delay loading of
    thumbnails
    that are out of the user’s view.

Adding Gallery Items

To use the default options for the Gallery
Theme
, here are instructions for creating gallery entries:

  1. Create a thumbnail for each entry sized 125×125
  2. Create a full-sized image for each entry sized 500×375
  3. Upload both images to /wp-content/uploads or use the image uploader in
    WordPress
    to upload the images to the same folder
  4. Next, create a custom field called “thumbnail” and enter thelocation of the thumbnail file, for example“/wp-content/uploads/design-name-125×125.jpg”
  5. You will need to create another custom field called “full-image” and enter the location of the full-size image in that field.
  6. You may also enter custom fields for “web-url” and “designer” if you want to add additional information to each entry.

Setting Up Star Ratings

  1. Install the WP-Post Ratings plugin from
    WordPress
    .org. Activate both the plugin and the widgets.
  2. To switch the type of images to transparent .PNGs, open wp-content/plugins/wp-postratings/wp-postratings.php in a text editor and change the following lines (should be near the top of the document):### Define Image Extension
    define(’RATINGS_IMG_EXT’, ‘gif’);
    //define(’RATINGS_IMG_EXT’, ‘png’);to match this:

    ### Define Image Extension

    //define(’RATINGS_IMG_EXT’, ‘gif’);

    define(’RATINGS_IMG_EXT’, ‘png’);

  3. Then upload that file back into the plugins folder.
  4. In your WordPress admin panel, click the Ratings > Options link on the left sidebar.
  5. The transparent .PNG stars should be selected by default.
  6. Under ‘Ratings AJAX Style’ change ‘Show Loading Image With Text’ to ‘No’ and ‘Show Fading In And Fading Out Of Ratings’ to ‘No.’
  7. Click ‘Save Changes.’
  8. Now click the ‘Ratings Templates’ on the left sidebar.
  9. Replace the text in the ‘Ratings Vote Text’ box with the following code:%RATINGS_IMAGES_VOTE%
  10. Replace the text in the ‘Ratings Voted Text’ with the following code:%RATINGS_IMAGES%
  11. Click the ‘Save’ button.
  12. You should now see your star ratings show on the gallery single pages next to the title of the gallery item.

Adding Widgets to the Footer

  1. Make sure you  activated the WP-Post Ratings widgets when you activated the plugin.
  2. In your WordPress Admin, click Widgets on the sidebar.
