Front folio grid

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hi,

I'm having some issues with the front folio, a zentools grid published on home.
Check: www.venturefactory.nl/index.php

This is what happens when I set 'resize images' to no (as in the original template). The images are all over the place, sort of. The images are sharp though.

When I set resize images to 'yes' (and let them 'smart resize & scale'), the grid is okay and the images are nicely placed. But then the problem is that the images itself are not sharp anymore.

So my problemis: I would like to have a nice grid as in the original template, but I would also like the images to be sharp.

Anyone?

Cheers,

Leonard

Is it possible to do change to resize option so we can see and also attach a pic with the images now so we can compare?

Thanks

See what you mean the quality is poor

Is it possible to get the images so they are more similar sizes before being resized?

And see if that makes a difference

Cheers

Hi,

I replced the module with a new zentools grid. Used the same settings, but now the grid works and the quality of the pics is better.

So, don't know how, but problem solved after replacing the module.

Thats interesting :)

Thanks for the update - I think I must have missed a release update for zentools while asleep

Hi,

I have a beta version addressing an issue related to low quality images but inside the lightbox, not on the grid.

I would like to make some tests on my local environment to check this issue. So do you know what version was using before update and "fix"?

Thanks

I didn't update the version of zentools. I just deleted the module 'front folio' on home and made a new module called 'front folio' with the same settings and assigned it to grid1. That was it.
