Scrappy
Gallery vs. Jetpack Carousel (7 posts)

    I absolutely love this theme! The only problem I run into is that when users want to click through my picture, they prefer the pop-up "carousel" rather than linking to a new page (I'm also partial to this). I've tried to read up about it and it seems like there's usually something in the code that's preventing this Jetpack feature to function properly. What I'm looknig for is to get this carousel option to work. Any assistance would help! Thank you!

    When you create your gallery, are you choosing to link directly to the media file, or the media's attachment page? It looks like the latter, but you need to do the former in order for the Jetpack gallery to work.

    I just checked them all, and there are all set to Media File... Any other suggestions?

    Hmm, it works on the Scrappy demo:
    http://scrappy-demo.calobeedoodles.com/2008/06/10/post-format-test-gallery/

    On your site, the Portfolio gallery appears to be linking to the attachment page, not the media file. For example, clicking on a picture here:
    http://designdocs.us.com/portfolio/

    Brings me here:
    http://designdocs.us.com/portfolio/scrapbook-service-thank-you-card/

    Confirm that you've activated the Carousel feature in the Jetpack menu (it's not on by default -- you have to enable it), then try deactivating any plugins to rule out a conflict.

    If that doesn't point you in the right direction, I'd try Jetpack support at http://jetpack.me/support/
