    Hello

    I hope all is well 🙂

    I’m wondering if you can help…. I like the back end editor grid gallery style the way the images all seem to inter lock (meet each other)…
    The VC grid gallery seems more formal and a lot of white space (for want of a better description)

    I would like to be able to place the back end editor grid gallery style after an image header and a short text paragraph is this possible..?

    If yes please would you point me in the right direction

    Thank you
    Kirsten

    Hi Kirsten,

    I’m not sure what you mean? You can change the padding option with the Grid Gallery. Do you have a link to the example please.

    HI Andy
    mmm thought you may not understand me!
    I’m messing about behind the scenes of my website so I don’t have a live page to show… I’m really not sure if I can explain my self properly

    This is the grid I really like – http://acoda.com/epix/grid/ It’s the first one on this page

    Firstly I’d like to add at the top of my page an image or a stage gallery then I would like to add a text box (I can do this )

    After that I would like to add the grid style http://acoda.com/epix/grid/ (the first one)

    I only seem to be able to add this style of grid if I use the backend editor grid – which adds the galley to the top of the page only (as far as I can see)

    If I use the Front end editor the images seem to have a lot of white space around them and a slightly more formal feel

    I’ll send a link privately and hope you understand my ramblings!

    Thanks
    Kirsten

    Hi Kirsten,

    I’ve created a page for you here: http://www.kirstenplatt.co.uk/test/

    In order to make it full width, I changed the Row > Stretch > to Stretch Row and Content. Then added a Grid Gallery and increased the image sizes.

    Now you can place other content above or below it. I hope that helps?

    No problem. You can enable Ajax lazy load by editing the Grid Gallery I’ve implemented and select the option for it. That should do it?

    Hi Andy

    I’m back working on the website and the grid gallery looks fab!

    Until I add the lazy load etc… The pictures are no longer the same size I’m sure it’s just a bit of code changing I’ve tried… but not succeeded 🙁

    The page I’m working on is ‘Helen and Sam’s Wedding Gallery’ (not live)

    Also what size would I need to input if I wished it to be 4 across in stead of 3? I can see it says 700 x700
    I’d just like to see what it looks like.

    Thanks again for your support it’s very much appreciated
    Kirsten

    Hi Andy

    I’ve managed to suss out how to make the images on the grid gallery 4 across 525 x 525,

    However I’m still struggling with the Ajax lazy load

    The initial load eg 12 are perfectly square no problem

    Click load more

    The grid becomes no longer squares and when a portrait image appears it becomes very disjointed leaving lots of white spaces?

    Any ideas
    Thanks Kirsten

    Hi Kirsten,

    Is that definitely your FTP details, they look like your WordPress login details.

    mmm I guess I’m not sure what FTP means, I guessed they were my log in details

    So what is the FTP aagh I feel so silly having to ask
