I’m frustrated

fotomoto and photocrati

Has anybody been able to successfully use fotomoto in photocrati wordpress theme? If there's someone out there, I'd really be grateful for any information as to how to make it work.

I just wish fotomoto becomes fully functional in photocrati when it goes out of beta. Also wish photocrati can provide functionality for this great plugin.

  • Hi Tony,

    We have done some in-house testing on Photocrati, and unfortunately not all of their gallery types work with Fotomoto. We have had some luck getting the buy button links to appear in Thumbnail Galleries. To set this up, just follow our WordPress install instructions, then select Lightbox Gallery on the Settings page (http://my.fotomoto.com/stores/settings) in the Fotomoto Dashboard.

    Personally I think it would be great to see their theme be fully compatible with Fotomoto - if anyone else feels the same way, you might want to drop them a line and let them know.

    Hope that helps,
    Derek

    Wow, Derek! It works! You're the man! Now, I think I can go live as scheduled.

    I'll be testing it daily until just before site launch and report if I find some bugs. I hope not.

    Again, thank you very much for your assistance and proactive support.

  • I was wondering the same thing. I did contact Photocrati a couple of months ago asking if they supported Fotomoto. They said no, because of iFrames. I think it would be a boon for Fotomoto and Photocrati to be 100% compatible to both companies and photographers. When I discovered the Photocrati theme, I was sold and ready to switch to Wordpress pretty instantly. Until, that is, I found out from them Fotomoto isn't supported. Giving up the ease Fotomoto has created is just too hard. But I know I am preaching to the choir, so I will send them an email.

    In any case, do you know which Photocrati themes really do work with Fotomoto as you mentioned? And are any of those 100%: from blogs to galleries?

    Tyler- I totally agree - I'd love to see full compatibility with Photocrati as they have some very cool-looking and popular themes, obviously designed for photographers. I'm very glad that you contacted them to ask - the more people that do so the better, and hopefully the teams can coordinate to make it all work 100%.

    For the time being, as I said above the thumbnail galleries generally work, and we *do* have several photographers using Photocrati successfully. There is one issue in particular that most users stumble on, which I documented in the first response here. As of our last test a few months ago, as long as you don't need their slideshow view, Fotomoto is mostly compatible.

    Hope that helps and if you need any more info just let us know.

    Kind regards,
    Derek

  • Thanks Derek, I got a positive response back from Photocrati, but there was still no time frame nor complete agreement to make FM and Photocrati 100% compatible. I'll be researching more and will pay attention to what is already in the FM support forum regarding what works and doesn't. Unfortunately, the slideshow feature is something I really liked. But I do understanding the technical difficulties around that.

      You're welcome Tyler, and very glad to hear you got a positive response from Photocrati about this. I know that many Fotomoto users would love to see their themes be compatible, and I think Photocrati themes would be very interesting to our sellers already using WordPress. Crossing fingers =)

    Tyler,

    I just want to add one thing: unfortunately there's nothing we can do about iFrame. iFrame cuts off our widget and we can't make it compatible with it. But as soon as Photocrati witched to a non-iFrame version (which they say it's on their roadmap) we would be happy to do our best to make the Fotomot / Photocrati integration as seamless as possible. I am a big fan of what those guys do there as well.

  • Hi,

    You can use the Fotocrati theme and Fotocrati gallery for all you use to do but for fotomoto you use NextGEN Gallery and Lightbox 2 like i did by purchase at my www.bwfineart.com
    I Make the uploads by purchase 800 x 500 and 500 x 500 pix to let it work on Ipads and other stuff.
    The best for me this moment I think.

    Kind Regards,

    Kees
