Global Gallery Settings
With Como we’ve added some gallery settings that will allow you to update both the single gallery and gallery listing pages.
For this article we will be referring to the options available in Flothemes > Content Settings > Gallery.
Default Gallery Layout
The following option is for setting a “default” gallery option for a single gallery post. This is overwritten by individual gallery settings.
Select one of the 4 options to see the various layout details.
Each option will have its own specific settings from left to right.
Grid View Masonry
With grid view masonry, you can select the number of columns, the spacing between the images and the hover color and opacity.
This view will be in a letterbox view and will crop your image if not in the correct ratio – see here.
There are no additional options, you can just set the max height.
This is a can be center aligned or a left aligned image – see here.
Select the Active slide alignment.
If its center aligned, then there will be an image shown each side.
With left alignment, an image will immediately precede the current image to the right.
Gallery No Crop (Original Size)
This slider will not crop images and it will fit the container –see here.
There are no additional options, just select the slider height.
Gallery Max Height
This will allow you to set a max height on the single gallery posts for slider views 2-4. I would suggest using a slider no larger than 700px in height to allow a better fit for all devices.
Gallery Auto Play
The autoplay options allow you to enable autoplay and the speed in which the single gallery transitions between images.
Enabling pagination will allow you to navigate between single gallery posts with previous and next options:
Shown at the below comments in galleries:
Back to Galleries
Enabling this option will add a back to galleries link in single gallery posts. You can enter the label name and the page which it should link to:
The following options allow you to turn off the categories and tags options in the latest galleries type page:
The archives listing page for categories options are set with the following options.
If a user searches for a category they will be displayed with the view selected above.
Comments – enable or disable single gallery comments.
Change Default WP Gallery Shortcodes – this will allow your WordPress galleries to replicate the lazy loading grid views that we display in our theme. See the following video on using the default WP gallery shortcode.
