    (reposted this from another support forum, now I know where i should have posted it!)

    Hi. Just bought Photography Theme. Looks great on your demo pages, difficult to replicate. Two issues.

    (1) Featured image shows erratic behaviour. Sometimes it shows in gallery carousel, othertimes it doesn’t. Ive compared settings from two gallery posts, and they seem the same to me.. Obviously, something a miss, but cant deduce what.

    (2) Images in Gallery carousel, also appear under the carousel as if in a blog. Ive flagged the “hide from blog” option, but cant seem to get rid of them. I just wanted a nice clean screen with a carousel for each “gallery”. Again, no idea whats going on and cant find an answer from searching forums and support. Help appreciated. Thanks

    The blog I need help with is: nodarngood.wordpress.com

    Hey there,

    I’d be happy to help you through these issues!

    1.) Photography can only use images that are attached to the gallery posts – meaning they were uploaded From your computer, and not inserted or set as the featured image through the Media Library. I’m guessing on one of your galleries, you used a pre-uploaded image from the Media Library as your featured image, which may explain why it isn’t showing up in the slideshow.

    2.) Looking at this gallery, it appears that you may have clicked “Insert into post” after uploading each of the gallery images. Photography only requires that you upload the photos – no need to insert them into the content area. See Creating individual galleries in the Photography documentation for more info.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    Hey.

    Its amazing how clear and precise the instructions become…*after* you know what you’re doing! Your guidance was spot on, and if I´d read the guidance slowly and methodically in the first place, Im sure I´d have gotten it first time around! So the main aesthetic seem to work, I´ll start plying with the other bits now. Thanks for fast turn around and sage response.

    Thank you for the compliments :D. I’m just happy to help out! I know things aren’t 100% clear when you start using Photography, and that’s something we’re hoping to improve over time.

    In the meantime, I’ll close this topic, but feel free to start another if you have any more questions!
