Setting up the WP-PostRatings Plugin ↑ Back to Top

This awesome plugin allows you to change the layout of its output considerably. To get the optimal use of the plugin, we would suggest that you emulate our setup, which is present on the demo of Snapshot. To do this, simply alter the plugin options like on our screenshots below:

Different Layouts: Photo Showcase or Design Gallery ↑ Back to Top

Snapshot has been set up with the ability to function like a photoblog / photo showcase, as well as a design gallery. The built-in theme options allows you to easily switch between between these two options (see above).

The main differences are the fact that the photo showcase does not use an outward link (for example when using Snapshot as a CSS design gallery, the thumbnail wouldn’t link externally, but internally), whilst the detail page uses a larger preview image. There are also subtle layout differences between the detail pages of two templates and we suggest you switch around between the two for experimentation.
