    As I have previously said on another problem that I had, I’m trying to create a website for my sister-in-law that looks very similar to the website of her former teacher’s. My sister-in-laws website is http://www.swimsproutoftexas.com and her former teacher’s website is http://www.swimsprout.com. My sister-in-laws former teacher has approved us in doing this… they are working together.

    Here are the two problems I’m having with the “Photo Gallery”:

    1. My new website’s Photo Gallery page needs to look similar to the original website’s photo Photo Gallery page which is at http://www.swimsprout.com/#section5. How do I do away with “Show All” and just have a link for “Photos” and “Videos”? When I put those pictures in my “Photo Gallery”, I created a “Gallery Category” labeled “Photos”. I have also created a second “Gallery Category” labeled “Videos” although I have yet to place any videos in my “Photo Gallery” page.

    2. How do I add YouTube videos to this “Photo Gallery”? For example, one YouTube video that I want to put on my “Photo Gallery” page is this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lnEhsH-YuE. How do I do this?

    Hi Jhoecannon,

    Did you solved this issues? I found videos on the gallery and all the issues were resolved.

    I added the Nimble Portfolio plugin… I read the little bit of info on the WordPress Plugin page about how to use that plugin… I spent time on YouTube watching a foreign language film about the plugin (I watched it several times… 16.33 minutes video).. I played around with the plugin on my website for a couple of hours.

    I did create a page called “Portfolio” on my website… http://www.swimsproutoftexas.com/portfolio… that page is somewhat correct… and, if you click on one of the video “boxes”, the video does play… http://www.swimsproutoftexas.com/portfolio/#nimblebox%5Bnimble_portfolio_gal_default%5D/2/… but, this not what I want.

    I want the videos to show up on this page… http://www.swimsproutoftexas.com/#section5… under the Upper Heading of “Videos”… and I want them to show up looking like the “Photos”… that’s how they look on my sister-in-laws former teacher’s website at http://www.swimsprout.com/#section5.

    How do I do this? I have added four videos to my new website and after I learn how to do this, I can add more.

    Please see my last posting that I made one week ago (see above).

    How do I get these videos to show up in the Gallery area and how do I add a “Video” link nest to the “Photo” link?

    The Photo Gallery page is not functioning correctly. Sometimes, an image from the “Videos” category shows up on the “Photo” category page. At other times, even though I have posted 9 “Photo”, only 8 show up.

    Please see 3 attached images.

    Also, I have deleted it now, but I tried to add Photo # 10, but only 9 photos would show up. Can more than 9 photos show up on this “Photo Gallery” page?

    Hi Jhoecannon,

    By default it will show all the categories. When you click on photos then only photos will appears.

    On http://www.swimsprout.com they have made custom changes in the gallery.

    So if you want to fix this issue then it is customization request for us.

    Kindly connect with us via sktthemes.net/contact for customization pricing.

    Dave

    Dear Support Team,

    I did get your message about possibly having to customize the Photo Gallery area, but I did want to explore all of my other options first. Can you please answer these questions first:

    1. It appears that this theme is set up to show only 9 pictures in the Photo Gallery area when a visitor just goes to the website and strolls down to the Photo Gallery area… is this assumption correct? If this is correct, I believe I could get around the additional customization by first putting all of the videos in the Photo Gallery area first and then follow it up with a minimum of 9 photos.

    2. I would assume that if a visitor clicked on “Photo” that only photos that were given a Category Classification as “Photo” would show up… is this correct? If so, please see my third attachment in my last reply to you… why are only 8 pictures showing up when I had already published 9 photos?

    Today, I have published a 10th photo (all given a Category Classification as “Photo”) and still only 8 photos show up when myself or a visitor clicks on “Photo”.

    I believe something is wrong.

    3. If I had 20 photos published and all of them given the Category Classification of “Photo”… shouldn’t they all show up when a visitor clicks on “Photos”? This is what usually happens on most website themes.

    4. If I had 20 videos published and all of them given the Category Classification of “Videos”… shouldn’t they all show up when a visitor clicks on “Videos”? This is what usually happens on most website themes.

    5. My last question is this… please see my new attachment. Can we eliminate these 2 Url’s? Why are these in my admin area?

    Hi Josephine,

    1) Issue resolved. In the photo gallery shortcode you will find show=”” option. You can show particular amount of photos in the photo gallery using this option.

    2) Resolved.

    3) Yes, If you have 20 photos and visitor clicks on the photos/videos category all the photos will show up.

    5) Issue resolved

    Regards,
    Dave

    Dear Support Team,

    I did get your last response… so, I went into my photo gallery and changed my photo gallery shortcode from show=”-1″ to show=”9″ since I wanted nine photos/videos to initially show.

    When I go to http://www.swimsproutoftexas.com and stroll down to the “Photo Gallery” area… 9 pictures do show. Great!!

    However, when I click on “Photo”… only 8 photos show even though I have 10 “photos” published. You said in your last response to me that all 10 would show… this is not happening.

    The same thing happened when I changed the shortcode from show=”9″ to show=”6″… when I go to http://www.swimsproutoftexas.com and stroll down, there are only 6 pictures. Great! But, when I click on “Photo” only 5 photos show up… not the 10 that I have published.

    Why is this happening and how do we correct this?

    Hi Jhoecannon,

    If you show=”9″ means it will show total of both the photos and videos. So show=”-1″ displays all the photos and videos in the gallery.

    Dave
