    Hi Zach,

    Awesome plugin for WordPress!
    I use the gallery.htm template. Do you if it possible to change the width and height of the images? At the moment I use %IMAGE-THUMBNAIL%, but would like to have for example width=”200px” and height=”150px”

    Thanks!

      Hi Jan,

      There have been so many requests for features, and this has come up at least once in the past. There is currently no built in way to have CataBlog render a non square image, that being said, you may still use CSS to crop your thumbnails with the overflow:hidden; property. All you will need to do is set your thumbnail size to 200 pixels and then override some style code in your theme style.css file or in a catablog.css file in your theme’s folder. Here is a start on modifying the gallery template CSS classes, you might need to modify the classes more to meet your exact needs.

      .catablog-row.catablog-gallery {
        width: 200px;
        height: 150px !important;
        min-height: 150px !important;
        overflow: hidden;
      }
      .catablog-row.catablog-gallery .catablog-image {
        width: 200px;
        height: 150px !important;
        overflow: hidden;
      }

    Hi Zach!

    I was wondering if it was possible to make this already great plugin even more music/label friendly by adding fields for artist, format and release date :)

    Best!

    Hi Zach!

    Customizable fields would be an awesome addition indeed! This plugin would be really cool tool to create monthly release schedules for our website (ww.playgroundmusic.fi) but lacks the couple of fields for additional product info. Anyway..Keep up the good work; great plugin! Hopefully we´ll see the custom field feature up and running some time soon :)

    I recently updated this plugin for my site (stamford.mylocalevents.net) and lost my link access. I had each picture link to another page or site and now it just goes to the lightbox. Do you know how I can get link access back?

    • Zach says:

      Yes, edit your template code to not use the %MAIN-IMAGE% token, but instead build the thumbnail link yourself. Here is an example:

      <a href="%LINK%" class="catablog-image" %LINK-TARGET% %LINK-REL% >
        <img src="%IMAGE-THUMBNAIL%" alt="" />
      </a>
      

      • Jon says:

        Thanks for the quick reply! I also had a couple more questions.
        What code can I insert into the template of this plugin so that I can:

        1) Have the title of each catablog entry link to another page or site
        2) Adjust the margin and not have the description text be so close to the image

        If this sounds confusing please check out my site noted above.
        Thanks again!

        • Zach says:

          Jon,

          1) Please use the %TITLE-LINK% token instead of the %TITLE% token.

          2) Add these classes to your theme’s styles.css file:

          .catablog-row .catablog-title {
            margin: 0 0 0 120px !important;
          }
          .catablog-row .catablog-description {
            margin: 0 0 0 120px !important;
          }

    Hello Zach,
    Thanks for the new version.
    I have installed it and it removed links from the item titles. Is it possible to make titles links again?
