Photonic - Google Photos

Post by k2learner » 11 Feb 2018, 20:10

I am a total newbie with the plugin Photonic. I was able to create Google Client ID, Google Client Secret, Refresh Token(for Back-end / Server-side Authentication). I was able to see the albums retrieved in Helper section.

I then used in a brand new blank page in Wordpress editor -
[gallery type='picasa' user_id='GoogleUserWhoOwnsPhotos' kind='photo' layout='random']

I was able to click on the box in wordpress editor and was able to choose options like thumbnail size, Main image size etc.

The photos don't show up in the page. I then entered in MuffinBuilder forms - the photos still don't show up.

Please help.

Photonic is still supported by Sayontan via the support forum. You need to ask there as he has the most experience with it.
