    Hi and thanks for this wonderful plugin. All works fine for me and I have only one question: is it possible to set the box to an even height, although I have different title length? I have the problem, that my boxes are all in a different height. My medias has all the same dimension. Best regards from Germany, Arndt

    Hey there, I'm using the Youtube Skin for a Youtube stream grid. I'm having an issue where even though the cover and play button are linked to the lightbox, clicking anywhere on the usually triggers the video to play in the grid item as well. I only want it to display in the lightbox. It may have something to do with the class "esg-click-to-play-video". Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks!

    After digging around a bit further, I've realized that my issue is that I have the Youtube video iframe within "esg-entry-media", whereas your demo does not (https://essential.themepunch.com/youtube-stream-grid-plugin/). When I click anywhere on my cover, it makes the iframe visible. How do you disable embedding the iframe within the grid media wrapper?

    Hi efishinsea,

    The technique there wouldn't disable the hover completely. Instead, it would allow you to display whatever content/elements you choose by default without a mouse-hover. Hope this helps!

    Hey Themepunch, Is it possible to create a skin switch for the user? I want to be able to give the user a selection of different views. The best way to do this is to probably reload the grid with a different skin when a selection is made. (For a reference, on https://dribbble.com/, the top right icon allow them to switch the display options to have different grid layouts / skins.) Possible? I thought that perhaps there maybe a Javascript reload that can be done where you specify the skin on the grid. Thoughts?

    A page reload is required (to apply the filter), but for anyone who wants to override the skin that is being displayed on the current page, you can use this short piece of code in your functions.php. function eg_change_skin($skin_id) { return $_GET['egskin']; } // wp will watch run this action on load. add_action( 'wp', 'switch_the_essgrid_skin' ); // Run this filter if the 'egskin' paraemeter is supplied. function switch_the_essgrid_skin() { // IF there is a 'Skin' parameter in the URL. if ($_GET['egskin']) { // Run Filter to change the skin. add_filter('essgrid_switch_item_skin', 'eg_change_skin', 10, 2); } } All you have to do is append ?egskin=15 to apply skin ID 15 to the current pages' essential grid. Trying this to a form selector means that you can switch the skin to whatever you prefer!

    For anyone experiencing the following error (I see a couple of users above reporting it already):

     "Fatal error: Undefined class constant 'isColor' in .../wp-content/plugins/essential-grid/includes/colorpicker.class.php on line 148"
    
    This is a bug and ThemePunch should offer the fix to users regardless of support status, that's Envato's policy on support! The fix is, in the above mentioned file in the error message on line 148, there is a missing "$" just before the "isColor" class constant. That call should look like this:
    TPColorpicker::$isColor

    Hello team, I have a very simple issue with Essential Grid which I can't solve. I use the Youtube Stream skin. When clicked one video pops out and another one plays within the container - thus a user is unable to listen to a music video for instance without stopping the one that popped. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    +1 for Photoswipe Lightbox support. I know it doesn't do iframe and video, and I hear it's a huge script, but really nothing comes close to it functionally or aesthetically for a photographer who wants to configure a clean image-only grid that provides additional options after the image is enlarged. Maybe integrate it with a disclaimer in the options panel? That would give some of us the control we want, and others no excuse for using it incorrectly!
