Small questions

Hi,

My home page is working and i've managed to adapt little things, however, there are a few things i can't solve:
1. underneath my page there is a box around my description. Is it possible to remove it? http://www.stevenlefebrefotografie.be/index.php I see this website, http://www.jimsweeneyimages.com , so i think it is possible.

2. I have the impression that the quality of my images tend to be soft. It's strange, when i export from lightroom to dropbox everything seems perfect https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/998 … 015-15.jpg, but when i upload via publisher they change to a soft image. I've even tried to export at 84% jpg quality to no avail. See the second last picture to compare http://www.stevenlefebrefotografie.be/g … r_spaniel/

3. Imagine i want to add a blog page. Can i do it all with the TTG blog module and adding a blog title in the phplugin file?

Thanks for your answers.
Steven

Re: Small questions

If you use Image Captions you'll get the box. If you just use Image Titles, you'll get the title without a box.
If you use both, the title, without a box, will be above a boxed caption.

I think you can remove the box background and border with custom css. Looks like the selector is

.ttg_content p

Since it's being applied with inline styling you'll probably also have to use !important


2. Images look good to me

3. Imagine i want to add a blog page. Can i do it all with the TTG blog module and adding a blog title in the phplugin file?

you'll need to install WordPress in a sub-folder. Mine is in the 'blog' sub-folder.
And yes, just add the navigation item in the navigation section of your phplugins file.

1. When i use image titles and turn off the image captions, everything disappears, no title, no box.
Concerning custom css, in which file do i have to look and adapt? This must be somewhere in the stage export file? https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/998 … .58.16.png

2. Strange you don't notice any difference, even my wife can see the website image sharpness is poor compared to the dropbox image. (macbook pro retina, late 2013)...

You'll need to make sure you have information in the "Title" metadata field for each image. (Do this in Library)
Then you'll need to republish the images in the Stage album used for the Home page. In Publisher setup, you can check the "Push metadata ...." box to make this quicker.

Concerning custom css, in which file do i have to look and adapt?

Implement custom css via phplugins: http://ce4.theturninggate.net/docs/doku … custom_css

I'm not viewing on a retina monitor. To me, the only real difference I can see is that the dropbox version is larger.

I notice a slight difference when using my iPad.

Before I got my iPad 3 (retina screen) I used to use 800px for the size of large images in my galleries and they looked fine on my desktop and laptop monitors. After I got my iPad I noticed that those images looked like crap (to use a technical term). I then republished all images at 1200px and they looked better on the iPad. So my suggestion is to republish your album images at a higher resolution than the 1024px you're using now.

Re: Small questions

I turned off my web work for one week and got the title problem fixed in 5 minutes, time is helping sometimes also ;-)
Only the sharpness is still a problem, i played with the resolution to no avail, i guess that i'll have to accept it. Though, i will consult some friends to find a solution.

Browser caching issue perhaps?
Looks pretty good on my retina iPad.
