    I’m having difficulty incorporating Galleria onto my Shopify
    site. Any suggestions on how to go about doing this would be
    greatly appreciated.

    Sorry, we don’t have telephone support. We have no
    specific instructions for Shopify, but the generic instructions
    available at should
    apply for all backend environments.

    If you run into problems that are specific for the Galleria
    product, let the developer post the problem here and be as
    descriptive as possible.

    seems crazy to me that shopify can’t do galleries. i’ve bought
    galleria now as it was advertised as just “copying and pasting
    code” and its nothing close to that. ive been looking at forums and
    the readme for an hour and have made no progress.

    So I guess my first question is, I downloaded galleria, I
    bought/downloaded the theme I like, what is step 1?

    In the “beginners guide” it asks me to

    “Extract the file and place the
    “galleria” directory where you have your HTML

    I don’t know what this is. I’m using Shopify.

    Thanks in advance,

    I am sorry, but “Where to put html in Shopify” seems to be
    Shopify support task. May be better try to ask their support for
    I never used Shopify, so I am sorry.

    We are working on some tutorials on how to publish Galleria
    galleries on various platforms. It’s not always an easy task
    though, as there are no simple apps or plugins that works
    cross-platform. So regardless, it’s good to have some basic
    knowledge on how to upload files and include them in the CMS.

    On Shopify, you do something like:

    1) Place the galleria files in your assets as described here:
    I thin you need to place them flat inside the assets directory.

    2) Add this before closing the </head> tag in
    the theme.liquid template:

    {{ 'galleria-1.2.7.min.js' | asset_url | script_tag }}
    {{ 'galleria.classic.min.js' | asset_url | script_tag }}

    3) Now you should be able to call Galleria on any container
    containing images (You don’t have to load the theme, we did
    that in the head).

    There are some docs in the shopify help that explains how to add
    assets and place them inside your theme files.

    Ok, thanks. I believe we are making slight progress. I
    successfully downloaded my theme, added all the galleria elements
    to the assets folder, and re-uploaded the theme.

    For the example code in the interestingly named “Beginner’s
    Guide”, I’ve pasted in the element specific URL anywhere it was
    called. Thus my code now looks like this:

        <script src=""></script>
        <script src=""></script>
            #galleria{ width: 700px; height: 400px; background: <a href="/discussions/problems/000" title="Discussion #000">#000</a> }
        <div id="galleria">
            <img src="">
            <img src="">
            <img src="">

    When I run this, i get the error “Init failed: Galleria could
    not find the element “#gallery”

    I cannot find this #gallery thing-a-ma-jig anywhere in the files
    I uploaded.

    What is my next step?

    What is the timeline on publishing the tutorials you

    Thanks in advance.

    You are probably calling'#gallery');
    instead of'#galleria');.

    Ben Forman

    Where? The code on my page is as copied, with‘galleria’);

    Are you talking about somewhere else?

    see it here:

    August 20, 2012 at 9:55 am

    When I view the source, I find on line 220:'#galleria');

    And then on line 228:

        width: 500,
        height: 500

    The second one should be removed. You are also loading the theme
    multiple times, please review your code and avoid adding more code
    than necessary.

    Ok, thanks for your help. I think I’ve correctly removed that
    section. I had forgotten I’d put that in there – I’d read that tip
    off some other forum and had forgotten about it.

    I now no longer see the error but the gallery doesn’t seem to
    work. Only one of my 3 pictures is showing as a thumbnail and its
    not expanding into the window when I click on it.

    Am I not calling the JQuery correctly?

    You are still loading several themes multiple times, check your
    source code. You are also loading Galleria multiple times.

    Looking at the source code, when i search “galleria” it comes up
    18 times.

    How can I find where I’m loading galleria multiple times? What
    is the code for “loading Galleria?”

    With that I should be able to go through and delete all other
