I would like clients to be able to read a short description (usually the columnist name) when viewing images in a gallery. Is that possible?May 31, 2014 at 1:51 am #63437PeterMember
If you mean when a visitor clicks on a thumbnail, you can easily put a description for each image by editing that image from the gallery settings.
Simply open that gallery from the “Gallery” settings and scroll down to the list of images and click the “Edit” link.
The description will then appear in the photo details page when someone clicks on the thumbnail.June 3, 2016 at 1:33 am #63438salvenMember
as I am facing the same problem as described by Troy Media (only on the current release) it seems that Description is only picked up if you add them at the same time you first add an image to the gallery. Once the image is part of the gallery, further edits as described above are not picked up by the “detail” page.
Can you confirm this as issue?
It is also bit confusing on how Photo Seller galleries are currently managed: while they effectively seem to just “point” to images in the media folder, they still do allow for duplicate entries inside the same gallery, which doesn’t make sense to me (although you might have customers with such use case?).
Integration with other gallery managers would be useful too, in the likes of NextGen and similar: Photo Seller makes its own copies anyway, so why not let the user leverage the structure already in place?

It works but I think what is happening is that the caching due to this plugin is giving you the old page. To test these things you should try viewing any changes you make with another browser.

Can you give me a practical example or steps so I can verify this?

Can you please provide a specific use case or example of what you are trying to achieve?June 9, 2016 at 6:45 pm #63440salvenMember
sorry for the late reply. I trust your analysis on the first item, so won’t add more
– create a gallery, select few images from the media library and save
– add more images from the media library: you will be able to select the same image(s)
as before, and they will receive a new Image Id in the gallery. As said, there might
be use cases for it, just not something I can envision.
Integration with other gallery manager
– when you add images, on the “Choose Your Images For Your PhotoSeller Gallery”
besides the tabs for Upload and Media Library, have a tab for say NextGen Gallery
or whichever other Gallery management tool is installed.
That way, I can manage my images with the Gallery (easier) and yet get it easily
integrated with your plugin for eCommerce. WP Media library unfortunately is not
a great image organizer.
