    Hi,

    I got the pro version of this theme specifically to be able to set up galleries / photo albums. Could you provide a clear instruction on how to get a photo album working? The instructions in the documentation section seem to stop at creating a page. No word about how to get images in it etc.

    Help is much appreciated.

    Hi,

    Okay step by step instructions for photo gallery:

    1. First Go to WordPress admin panel and then Click on Photo Galleryhttp://sktthemesdemo.net/documentation/skt-white-doc/assets/img/portfolio.jpg

    And then Click on Add New.

    2. Once clicked on Add New Add the title and then just set up a featured image just like shown here: http://sktthemesdemo.net/documentation/skt-white-doc/assets/img/portfolio.jpg

    Once done select any category or add any category from the category area in this very page. And click on Update.

    3. To add another image again click add new and follow the first 2 steps as given above.

    So for every new image title and 1 featured image is to be added and it is to be selected into any category you wish.

    Now once this is set up.

    Use shortcodes of the gallery anywhere in any page:

    Portfolio with Thumbnail: [portfolio-thumbnail cat=”Category Name”]
    Portfolio with Lightbox: [portfolio cat=”Category Name”]

    Regards,
    Shri

    Hi,

    So I need to “add new” as in add new Gallery for every single picture? In that case, wouldn’t it be much more helpfull to call it “add picture” rather than gallery, as a gallery is usually a collection of picture rather than single ones?

     

    Cheers,

    Stefan

    Hi Stefan,

    Yes point taken. Will try if possible to change Add New to Add new picture if possible.

    For album you have to kindly visit Pages>Edit any page and apply page template of Photo Album to have the album displayed on that page.

    Regards,
    Shri

    Hi,

    Thank you for your help. I manage to create galleries now. However, if you check my page sveit.at, under photos there are two galleries. “USA” is just fine, but in “Norway” the images from USA also show up. They do have their own category (and only the one).

    Also I noticed that when making a “New Photo Album” the category selection is not appearing as it does in the “New Gallery” function.

    Thank you again for the help.

    Have lowercase while typing the category name. So if this is for USA: Portfolio with Thumbnail: [portfolio-thumbnail cat=”usa”]

    This should be for norway: Portfolio with Thumbnail: [portfolio-thumbnail cat=”norway”]

    Regards,
    Shri

    I tried that now but still the “Norway” gallery has all the pictures in it.

    Does the function call on the slug or the name of the category? Either way, even if with both slug and name on lowercase it won’t change.
