    Thanks for this Emma, it worked like a charm~

    Hopefully it can be included permanently in an upcoming release, seems simple enough. I’m sure everyone else who uses a non-ID theme would really appreciate this as well.

    Cheers

    Thanks.

    Yeah I’m not using Crowdpress so that’s probably why. I think there was something there related to figuring out how to link Project Images to Project page when using the shortcodes..

    I understand you have an internal tool that isn’t made available to public. Would expect that. It just feels like a lot of nerves would be calmed if people had a ‘general’ idea of what your crew is prioritizing and ‘possibly’ including in the upcoming release(s).

    Ok, I get that can happen..but are you guys ever going back and posting the solutions to these past topics/questions/bugs so people can reference them?

    Tnx.

    Hi Emma, my settings are the same as Benjamin posted towards the beginning of this topic:

    For IDC > Project Submission Privileges I have All Members selected.
    For Settings > General > New User Default Role I have Subscriber selected and for Membership I have checked the box so Anyone Can Register.

    Tnx.

    Oh, by above I meant your previous post with this code:

    function id_projectImage($attrs) {
         global $wpdb;
         if (isset($attrs[‘product’]) && isset($attrs[‘image’])) {
              $project_id = $attrs[‘product’];
              $image_no = $attrs[‘image’];
              $project = new ID_Project($project_id);
              $post_id = $project->get_project_postid();
              if ($image_no == 1) {
                   $image = ID_Project::get_project_thumbnail($post_id);
              }
              else {
                   $image = get_post_meta($post_id, “ign_product_image”.$image_no, true);
              }
              return ‘<div class=”product-image-container” style=”clear: both;”><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><img src="'.$image.'" /></a></div>';
         }
         else {
         return null;
         }
    }

    Hi Emma, thanks.

    You originally sent:
    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?></a>
    ..but then we agreed it wasn’t relevant to what I was trying to do.

    I had already tried the code exactly as you have it above and it didn’t work either. Did it again today but it’s the same.

    Not sure what I’m missing here.

    Ok, weird..why was I able to comment on this before?

    More importantly, why is it none of your team has responded to any of my half-dozen posts (except this one) in well over 1.5 months? In fact, I’m having to repost most everything because you system expires them after 2 weeks, which clearly isn’t enough time for anyone to resolve/assist/contribute to the issues at hand..be it your support team or the community for that matter.

    I’ve been spending a decent amount of time on your support forum and notice a lot of important topics going unresolved over and over again, and there seems no way to understand how these features requests, bug corrections, etc. are being handled.

    Requests get ‘logged’ in some list that users like me have no access to, so we have no idea what the ‘roadmap’ to address these requests is. One of the last responses I got from Nathan was “We have a product forthcoming that should address this.” I’ve seen a few iterations of this response and a lot of pending questions..

    Hi Emma, is there an ETA on a more permanent fix as to when members names will be added to backer’s list if/when admin has to do manual order? Seems to me this temporary solution could create problems and as you say, requires users passwords…something not every person will want to just fork over and make a site look/feel more novice.

    Unfortunately- I agree with too much of this. However:

    1. Yes, this should most definitely be customizable- but it’s not yet. For now you have to go into ignitiondeck-crowdfunding>languages>ignitiondeck.po and manually edit the text however you want..I think there’s another file to edit as well but don’t recall off the top of my head. Here’s link to ID’s Translation/Rewording documentation

    2. I get where you’re coming from but in order for a crowdfunding site (or any site that requires user info, content, etc) to really work, it helps to provide users a detailed FAQ/How This Works/How to Submit Project instructional in order for them to do it such that you and/or your team isn’t having to fix/edit/update every single submission you get in the future.

    Here’s where I think ID should really add tooltips and more customization features for the fields and forms in order to make things more intuitive for users. I’ve changed the text and added some “instructions” next to the form fields to help make it a little easier for users to understand what everything is.
    Ie:
    PROJECT TITLE – keep it short, catchy and interesting
    GOAL AMOUNT – this one is up to you, just make it achievable
    PROJECT SHORT DESCRIPTION – keep this one around 140 characters so you can Tweet it

    It’s not an amazing or long-term solution but helps for now. Be careful to make text too long.

    3. Yeah, this is also a major one I don’t think they have a solution for yet either….ugh….

    Hi Ashok, was wondering if you got around to trying either of the plugins Emma suggested, I’m particularly interested in knowing if you had any luck integrating Advanced Custom Fields with IgnitionDeck project. Thanks

    I’m looking at ignitiondeck-shortcodes.php file lines 157 thru 176 trying to figure out how we can get these project images linking. Would really appreciate suggestions from the community on this.
    Do any other files other than ignitiondeck-shortcodes.php need to be edited?
    Tnx.

    function id_projectImage($attrs) {
    global $wpdb;
    if (isset($attrs[‘product’]) && isset($attrs[‘image’])) {
    $project_id = $attrs[‘product’];
    $image_no = $attrs[‘image’];
    $project = new ID_Project($project_id);
    $post_id = $project->get_project_postid();
    if ($image_no == 1) {
    $image = ID_Project::get_project_thumbnail($post_id);
    }
    else {
    $image = get_post_meta($post_id, “ign_product_image”.$image_no, true);
    }
    return ‘<div class=”product-image-container” style=”clear: both;”></div>’;
    }
    else {
    return null;

    Got it, all good.

    Understood, but those same areas you mention (title and button) are also removable via the deck builder, so in the event a person doesn’t add either or in a customized deck, it would seem essential have the image linkable, like practically all the major crowdfunding sites do- Indiegogo, Crowdrise, Gofundme, Kickstarter, Kiva, Youcaring, Giveforward..the list goes on, and even non-major sites as well.
    Having scoured dozens of websites and spent many many hours of design research on this, it’s safe to say the industry standard is to link the image and not have buttons on the project box within a grid layout, be on a homepage or other main landing page.
    I really appreciate you logging the request with developers but seeing you already have this functionality in your themes, is there a way to bump up the request and/or can you provide a temporary solution I can incorporate into my site? I’d make sure to backup the code in case of core updates. Not only would this be really helpful to all of us that need to keep our own theme but it also keeps your product inline with the UI design mentality the greater crowdfunding community has embraced and expects.

    Thanks Emma
    But I find your response confusing..why in the homepage template of my theme?

    Perhaps I didn’t phrase this right in my initial post: What I’m asking for is that the images/thumbnails associated to the projects that appear when using your shortcodes (i.e.: [project_grid columns="4" max="8" order="ASC" deck="6"]), link to their respective projects post/page.

    This isn’t limited to the homepage at all, it’s for wherever your shortcodes get placed. Divi already offers that functionality within the post/page interface..in fact, seems many plugins/themes offer that by default these days.

    Wouldn’t this code you gave me be something that needs to be in your php templates so everyone else who uses one of the thousands of themes that’s compatible with your plugin can have this seemingly basic functionality?

    Hi, I use the Divi theme which also sets the featured image as a background image.
    Right, the behavior has to be altered..can you shed a bit more (specific) light on this?? Perhaps even provide some detailed support/code to get that can help us get that image linking?

    Thanks. Tho is this really the first time anyone has asked about this tho?
    Seems like a pretty basic idea.
    I’m still baffled how this isn’t already part of your product..

    Hi, I think what Kevin means is he wants the Featured Project Image to link to the Project Page, which is where the Learn More button takes the user to.
    This is exactly what I’m trying to do as well and posted here..

    Hi Emma, we’re using the Divi theme and I’m aware which themes those sites use.

    I get they have different classes and id’s assigned to those elements (I have an inspection tool) but I was hoping to see a more complete snapshot of the CSS to the Project Info Box (for either theme really) so I can find a way to incorporate a version of ether one into ours. As mentioned above, my knowledge of CSS is decent but obviously limited and even with the inspector tool I can’t seem to get the whole picture of how to best format this.

    For example with the launchme2.com (using Crowdpress) and my inspector tool, I can see the following but it seems incomplete.

    /* Line 415 */
    .project .text
    {
    background-color: #ffffff;
    background-image: none;
    background-repeat: repeat;
    background-attachment: scroll;
    background-position: 0% 0%;
    background-clip: border-box;
    background-origin: padding-box;
    background-size: auto auto;
    padding-top: 5%;
    padding-right: 6%;
    padding-bottom: 5%;
    padding-left: 6%;
    box-sizing: border-box;
    width: 100%;
    height: 240px;
    position: relative;
    }

    /* Line 421 */
    .project .text p
    {
    padding-top: 0px;
    padding-right: 0px;
    padding-bottom: 22px;
    padding-left: 0px;
    line-height: 21px;
    }

    /* Line 423 */
    .project p.author
    {
    color: #888888;
    font-size: 13px;
    padding-top: 0px;
    padding-right: 0px;
    padding-bottom: 10px;
    padding-left: 0px;
    }

    /* Line 425 */
    .project .text ul.numbers
    {
    height: 46px;
    position: absolute;
    bottom: 5%;
    left: 6%;
    }

    /* Line 781 */
    ul.numbers
    {
    list-style-type: none;
    list-style-image: none;
    list-style-position: outside;
    }

    /* Line 783 */
    ul.numbers li
    {
    float: left;
    display: inline;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    font-size: 11px;
    line-height: 22px;
    padding-top: 0px;
    padding-right: 25px;
    padding-bottom: 0px;
    padding-left: 0px;
    }

    /* Line 785 */
    ul.numbers li strong
    {
    display: block;
    font-weight: 700;
    font-size: 16px;
    line-height: 19px;
    }

    /* Line 809 */
    #projects-masonry .project-block p
    {
    font-size: 13px;
    line-height: 19px;

    so part of the solution to the problem here was that i hadn’t put !important on some of the styles so it seemed as if the custom.css file wasn’t being read in the specific areas i was looking at.

    Yes, I followed the instructions to a T. It’s next to all the other ignitiondeck-______.php or .css files in the main plugin folder: wp-content>plugins>ignitiondeck-crowdfunding>ignitiondeck-custom.css

    Hi Emma,

    Seems like my last message didn’t send. Anywho, there wasn’t a fixed page height, container height, or other identifiable CSS that should limit items displayed on that page…so I’m still not sure why [project_grid] reverts to 5 projects.
    Fortunately, I tried the grid shortcode again and I got it right this time around. Seems like I had a couple wrong characters within the code (cat # and admin name) which is part of why it wasn’t quite working for me.

    Thanks!

    I’m using a child theme and everything other than how many projects are showing up is working fine (so far..). Setting>Reading was the first place I went to adjust this but that’s definitely not the problem.
