I’m frustrated

Unable to get Fotomoto working with any WP gallery

Seems different pages here recommend different WordPress gallery plug-ins. Have tried many -- WP Photo Album Plus (WPPAP), etc. -- all without success but WPPAP gets the closest.

If I turn everything on in WPPAP I can get a Checkout button, but no Buy Print, Download, etc. buttons below the images. Tried API mode (then get a Delete button that's scary), non API mode, followed all the setting instructions.

Is there an easy-to-use, easy-to-follow current set of steps for a gallery that works with FotoMoto or should I just give up and use single images (those work) or something else entirely?

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your post and I'll be glad to help you get set up with whatever supported plugin you choose.

    For WPPA, you can find the setup instructions at http://support.fotomoto.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2158703-how-do-i-set-up-fotomoto-with-the-wp-photo-album-plus-plugin-for-wordpress-. There are a lot of options in that plugin, so make sure to follow the steps closely and at the end all should be well! If not just let me know what's happening.

    Feel free to post again here, or if you prefer to reach us directly, just contact us via our contact page.

    Thanks again,
    Derek

  • Yes, done all of that. (Also, those screenshots for WPPA options are very out of date.)

    Only way to get anything is to do full gallery with all the crap I don't want. I guess now I'll have to play with app the WPPA options to see if I can get rid of the EXIF data bar, the hierarchy, and all the other crap at the top and bottom.

    Hi David,

    I'll look in to getting those screenshots updated, but assuming they're all still accurate as far as what values to put where. If you need help with modifying WPPA options, you might want to contact WPPA - the author has been very helpful in the past.

    I'm happy to help make this easier for you, but I'll kinda need some info on what it is you're after. WPPA is designed to be used with a gallery of images. If you're just wanting Fotomoto Buy links on individual images, there might be an easier way. If you have a live page that would show me your goal that would be helpful.

    Better yet, why don't you drop us a line at support@fotomoto.com or via our contact form.

    Thanks,
    Derek

  • I got it working but had to turn off things like breadcrumbs, exif data, etc. which I wanted on other pages, so converting those to a different kind of gallery.

    A screenshot of the different setup options when adding a WPPA gallery to a page (gallery or slideshow? Slideshow with features [a must], etc.) might be helpful for folks.

    Hi David,

    Glad you got it working.

    As you've seen, there are a lot of options in WPPA, and our goal is to have easy setup instructions for those who want to turn on Fotomoto. Since WPPA isn't our software we've left the rest for WPPA to explain in their documentation, but I see your point. Do you think adding a link to WPPA's documentation on how to set up the options would make things easier?

    Thanks again,
    Derek

  • Not only the WPPA options, but the style. Some of these will work, some won't. And some of the sub-options mean the buttons won't show up either. Picking a Slideshow but with only the filmstrip, no buttons. Gallery won't work either, at least I couldn't get it to work.



    Has to be a fully-featured slideshow to get the buttons in my testing.

    Gotcha - thanks for the further clarification and screenshots. Looks like WPPA might have added several options; I'll see what we can do to make it easier for Fotomoto users.

    Thanks again,
