For most things you can refer to these general instructions that cover most of what you need to know:
A few things that are specific to your site that need to be remembered are:
SORTATION OF IMAGES
The images will display in any gallery in this order:
- By default in the order in which they are uploaded—which is generally in the correct chronological order.
- To correct the sortation for works that are older than those below them, in the “Artworks” dashboard page, drag the artwork post down to a position that works correctly.
NB you can display more than 20 posts at a time by using the “Screen Options” at the top-right of the screen. This makes drag/drop easier.
ACCESS TO HIGH-RES IMAGES
If you upload the high-res image when adding an image as the featured image, the image will be resized twice:
- WordPress will first create a “scaled” version that has no dimension greater than 2560pixels
- WordPress then creates a thumbnail, medium and large version of that image for use in our code
- The thumbnails pages will use the thumbnail version of the image (max-width: 450px)
- The single artwork pages will use the medium version of the image (max-width 750px)
To have ready access to the high-res image itself from the single artwork page, you need to get the url of the image when you upload it (copy the url from the url field) and create an “Artwork Alternate Image” field (below main content and all the artwork data fields) and paste that url in the field for “Alternate Image url”. If, when you have done this, you see that the url ends with “-scaled.jpg” remove “-scaled” so that you see your original image name.
You can describe this high-res image in the field for image notes below (eg “High-res image”).
Once you have done this (and saved), you can access the high-res image (only when you are logged in) by clicking on the artwork in the single-artwork page.
If you have other alternate images for the artwork, you can add them by creating further sets of alternate image fields but only the first one you create will open from the front-end page. The others will be available from the backend only.
