Code to add a bit of code to all image post via child theme WordPress

  • SOLVED

Hello All,

I am using the Karma theme from truethemes.

I can have photos pop up with the prettyphoto effect but I have to manually add data-gal="prettyPhoto" to the <a href...> code.

I need code to automatically add data-gal="prettyPhoto" to all the <a href...> codes when I add an images to posts.

I am using the child theme of Karma and I hope this code could be added to that instead of the main theme, but if not possible, such is life. Possible even make it a small plugin.

I think it is a small batch of code but could be wrong.

If you want to get ambitious, make it so it treats all images in a particular post as a gallery and you can cycle through them as such. ie (previous) (next) functionality.

Thanks for looking.

Hi,

Have you tried the Fancybox for WordPress plugin?

no, as i thought it might conflict and the styles would be different.

Sorry if I can't be more helpful, but $5 is not much of a prize.

Good luck,

Hi,

Have you tried this code?


<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
$(document).ready(function(){
$("a:has(img)").prettyPhoto();
});
</script>


First, for a quick test, add it to your header.php file. Then if it works, load it properly via wp_enqueue_script() in your functions.php, e.g., something like


function my_scripts_method() {
wp_enqueue_script(
'custom-script',
get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/custom_script.js',
array('jquery')
);
}
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_scripts_method');


Good luck,
Gabriel

Thanks Gabriel. I tried the head route to test but with no success. For the heck of it I added the script to the functions file instead. Still no go.

Thanks for the effort.

I'll take your initial advice and just use Fancybox plugin.

Why don't you use Lightbox. You don't need to insert anything in your code. Plugin makes everything.
