    Hi mycookexpert – this is a very old thread but I happened to stumble on your reply. :)

    I double-checked and Photo Blog actually has a maximum number of posts per page of 9. To override that you’d need to add a custom PHP function – there’s an example here:

    How to Override Jetpack Infinite Scroll Settings in a Child Theme

    You could add the function either in a child theme or a functionality plugin.

    Ok, so if I remove the widgets, infinite scroll will be automatically on?

    It should be!

    Or is there a way to set the number of posts to higher than 9?

    Go to My Sites > Settings > Writing

    Change the number at “Blog posts Display 9 per page” to a higher number.

    Let us know how it goes!

    Hi Crina, Infinite Scroll isn’t an option on a site when there are footer widgets active, otherwise you’d never reach the bottom of the page in order to see the widgets. :) The only way to activate Infinite Scroll here would be to remove the footer widgets.

    If full size videos are not possible using this theme, then please tell me how to center the embedded videos, so they are not on the left side of the screen.

    To centre the smaller videos, try adding this code in your Customizer’s CSS panel:


    /* Centre smaller videos / https://theme-support.wordpress.com/topic/how-to-widen-videos-displayed-in-content-area-of-photo-blog-theme/ kp */
    .jetpack-video-wrapper {
    margin: 0 auto;
    display: inline-block;
    }

    To widen the smaller videos, try this:


    /* Enlarge videos on wider screens / https://theme-support.wordpress.com/topic/how-to-widen-videos-displayed-in-content-area-of-photo-blog-theme/ kp */
    @media screen and ( min-width: 2000px ) {
    .jetpack-video-wrapper iframe {
    width: 1950px !important;
    height: 1100px !important;
    }
    }

    While we generally try to avoid using !important in custom CSS, it’s necessary here to override the inline CSS within the video embeds.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hi Rich, themes purchased on WordPress.com can only be used on sites hosted on WordPress.com. Some of the developers whose premium themes are sold through WordPress.com also sell their themes for self-hosted sites. Gridiculous Pro is found here:

    https://themes.bavotasan.com/themes/gridiculous-pro-wordpress-theme/

    Let us know if that helps.

    Hi Angie,

    Try adding this custom CSS to your Customizer’s Additional CSS panel to widen the main column in Espresso:

    
    /* Main column - widen / kp */
    .entry-header, 
    .entry-content, 
    .entry-summary, 
    .page-content, 
    footer.entry-meta {
      max-width: 1024px;
    }

    Hi Bailey, themes from outside the WordPress.com showcase – like Savona – can be used with a Business plan.

    We have a number of similar themes with sliders in our collection, if you’re not ready to upgrade and would like to check them out:

    Hi Julien, while we can help with minor CSS changes, but depending exactly what you have in mind, it may be more complex. Could you show me an example or describe in more detail what you’re looking for in terms of the layout?

    Hi there, what kind of shopping cart did you have in mind? Photo Blog is not optimized for WooCommerce, which is a popular ecommerce plugin. Themes in our collection that are optimized for WooCommerce can be seen here:

    https://wordpress.com/themes/filter/store

    You may also use Storefront, one of its child themes, or any other third-party theme optimized for WooCommerce.

    https://themes.woocommerce.com/storefront/

    https://woocommerce.com/product-category/themes/storefront-child-theme-themes/

    WooCommerce and other ecommerce plugins can be used with the Business plan. If you have any other questions, feel free to let us know.

    in reply to: Lightbox in image posts #164778 Reply

    Hi there! The carousel (what you refer to as the lightbox) is only available from images within galleries. This isn’t a theme limitation, but the way carousels work – they are tied to the gallery functionality.

    There is a way in the WP Admin dashboard to create a gallery with a single image that will open in a carousel. Here are the steps:

    1. Go to https://dmql8.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    2. Go to Posts > Add New
    https://dmql8.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php

    3. Click “Add Media”

    4. Click “Create Gallery”

    5. Click “Media Gallery ” to select an already uploaded file from your Media Gallery, or click “Add New” to upload a new one.

    6. Click the blue “Create New Gallery” button.

    7. Click the blue “Insert Gallery” button.

    8. Click “Publish” or “Update” to save the post.

    You should now have a single image that opens in a carousel.

    Let me know how it goes.

    As another tip, you can set your sewinstudio.com domain as the site’s primary domain so it’s what visitors see in the address bar by following the guide here:
