Here's the plugin I am referring to, and yes, I did download and install both the Highslide Plugin and Hi-Slide JS Thumbnail Viewer okay. Quick and easy to do.
Tech Projects Wordpress HighSlide JS Plugin
The main problem I'm having is that images in the gallery are displayed vertically on top of each other. I want to show four images per row horizontally. Like all those lovely cakes!
Best I can tell, the problem is happening because of the <p> tag. (Unless someone else has an idea as to what might be causing this.)
Here is what I found on the FAQ page:
Question: When I look at the generated code it is surrounded by a <p> tag. How can I remove that <p> tag?
Answer: This is a “feature” of wordpress. Here is the generated HTML required for highslide. Notice the <p> tags that surround it:
<p><a href="http://www.pinkcakebox.com/images/cake200.jpg" class="highslide" onclick="return hs.expand(this)">
To remove the <p> tag open your default-filters.php and comment out the following line: add_filter(‘the_content’, ‘wpautop’);
- - - >
Problem is, I can't even see the <p> tag in the first place, even when I switch to using the Visual editor.
Second problem is, I can't find the "default-filters.php" file.
Third problem is, I have no idea what "comment out" means. Actually, I know that a comment out does, I just don't know how to write one properly, or where to put it.
*** Right about now I know where I'd like to put it, but that wouldn't help me get this lovely script and plugin working properly! ***
Just for the record, I did try the NextGen Gallery plugin and will use it if I can't get Hi-Slide working. However, when you click the thumbnail, NextGen opens the full sized image in a new window, which I very much want to avoid. Hi-Slide enlarges it right on the page you are viewing. Very nice feature, and exactly what I am trying to accomplish.
Apologies for the long post. If anyone can help, I'd be very grateful. This is one skookum gallery, at least I think it is, and I'm quite frustrated about not being able to get it to do what I want.
