    I don’t know if this is a theme thing or rather about PhotoSwipe.

    1. When creating a blog post with some images, e.g. in a gallery in the post, I will most likely assign a feature image. The theme always displays the feature image as first image on the page. But, it is not clickable, nor in the gallery, so I cannot just click on the first image (aka. feature image) and cycle through all images with the cursor keys.
It would be great if there was a way to disable the automatic addition of the feature image on the post page.

    2. When creating a post with some text, I can use the great gallery feature and the #half hashtag to do some really nice and easy formatting by adding multiple galleries and text bocks in between. However, when clicking an image and having it displayed in large, I can only cycle through this one gallery. It would be great if the fullscreen PhotoSwipe would cycle through all images in that post, regardless that they might be distributed among multiple galleries.

    Hello Nico,

    You can disable the automatic output of post thumbnails on single post pages by doing the following:

    In your Admin Panel go to ‘Appearance’ -> ‘Editor’, find the single.php file in the list on the right.

    Locate the following line: <?php if (has_post_thumbnail()) : ?>
    Replace it with <?php if (has_post_thumbnail() && 1==2) : // the second condition disables thumbnail output ?>

    The result should look like the following:

    Click ‘Update File’.

    ——
    A little disclaimer: It’s best to do such customizations in a child theme or a custom plugin, so they do not get overwritten during theme updates. However, of course, you can always re-introduce them after a theme update.

    As for making all the photos in a post/page viewable inside one lighbox regardless of whether they have been added with one gallery or several: actually, galleries in Stills are made independent on purpose. Otherwise, a user would open the first gallery, browse through all the pictures in all the galleries, and would not read the text. The idea behind making the galleries independent was to serve content chunk by chunk and not give out all the ‘sweets’ at once. I hope this makes sense.

    Regards,

    I see your point. But maybe a configuration option (for both mentioned behaviours) would be great:

    I can imagine some users clicking the first image, browse through all pictures and leave the page – without reading the text. This way, they would not only miss the text (because they would not have read it anyway), but also all other galleries…

    Nico,

    I’ll be frank: as of now, there are no plans of including such an option into Stills.

    Regards,
    Paul
