Sorry Brad. I ramble too much I know. I have a better understanding of the purpose of a portfolio that is more than just images. But what I want is a portfolio page that displays images.
Thumbnail with a description that says "Church Photos." When it's clicked on, it brings up the lightbox with the navigational arrows that show the various images of various churches that the photographer has taken.
Then say another thumbnail or image that says something like, "Examples of Previous Wedding Photos." Then when the image or thumbnail is clicked, the lightbox comes up and allows the user to scroll through or navigate through the examples of the photographers wedding photo examples.
I did this with dreamweaver one time and had a good script to do it with. But I think what I have to do is have an image of say, "Wedding Photos," that links to a page of the thumbnail images, and when one is clicked on, the jquery lightbox opens and allows for easy scrolling or navigating the examples.
The jquery lightbox plug-in isn't supported anymore. But WordPress' native gallery does a fairly good job, and I found a site that allows you to put some java script on the page that allows you easily accomplish this without a plug-in, and using the built in gallery funtion in WP.
Thanks for the input brad and moody. Really appreciate it, and I'm sorry I took so long getting back. MoodyRiviera, I did go through the set-up instructions on the Modern Portfolio theme. It looked great. I guess I just didn't play with it enough. But I am going to dedicate some time to it, as I think I could learn a great deal modifying and creating a template or two and such. Brush up on my php skills (if you can call it skills 🙂 )
Brad, when you say "native gallery," I assume you mean WordPress' built in gallery? Do you recommend using that and then styling it the way I want, or is there a plug-in that may be more suitable? I'm gonna go through a tutorial now and see what I come up with. I don't know if WordPress does the image, and then once clicked on gives the photos that you can navigate through one by one. I thought that if you had a gallery on WP that you simply clicked on the image, and then it opened up a page with more thumbnails, which then could be viewed on their own. But maybe WP has improved the gallery. I haven't tried it in a while.
BUT, that is what I want to do to begin with. I have a big photo centered, and I want four thumbnails under it...that when clicked on, open up a navigational window (is that called the "lighthouse"?).
Sorry for my ignorance, lol. I know I can Google all this, but it's so much easier when someone with experience just tells you straight out what the best approach is.
Thanks for the advice to both of you. I very much appreciate it.
Thanks Ren. Worked perfectly.
Apparently, you just copy and paste the link of the tweet directly into wordpress, as you guys probably already know. The formatting and everything is already done for you. I e-mailed Brian's site directly, and got immediate response. That's what I love about Genesis.
Thanks Guys!January 24, 2015 at 8:00 am in reply to: How do I change Featured image thumbnail size for featured posts? #138501
Thanks for this. Helped perfectly.
Thank you VERY much. It worked like a charm.
I'm glad I spelled my URL correctly in the post content area, because I sure messed it up in the box that specifically asks for the URL, lol.
Anyway, I marked this as resolved and wanted to say thanks.
