Jetpack Tiled Image Gallery Not showing in Blog Feed (17 posts)

    Hello

    I have installed Jetpack as a plugin for Ridizain and using the tiled gallery for images.

    The gallery does not show in the blog feed? You have to click 'Read More' to see the tiled gallery.

    I want the gallery to show in the main feed.

    I recently installed WP 2014 for another site and did not have this problem?

    Thanks

    Ridizain uses excerpts for the blog feed and by default WordPress strips out all html from all excerpts.

    The difference with Twenty Fourteen is that it uses the_content instead and therefore what you are seeing is the entire content of the post, including all images, videos and galleries where applicable.

    If you wish to show the entire content then please see this thread for how to: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/show-entire-posts-the_content-on-front-page-not-excerpts?replies=5

    Hi Zulf

    I think the problem is I haven't created a child directory - didn't know what this is until now? I tried it in the parent directory but stayed the same?

    Is a child directory a good idea? Im pretty new to building wordpress sites.

    Thanks

    Tammy

    Hello Tammy,

    Yes, child themes and custom css/function plugins are the only ideal and sane way to modify both WordPress and theme behavior. It is never a good idea to modify either directly.

    Here's a good place to start with child themes: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Alternatively you can get a ready made child theme for your purpose here: http://ridizain.com/downloads/ridizain-starter-child/

    Regards,
    Zulf

    Hi Zulf

    Great thanks Ill get to it.

    One other question - I want all my posts to show on the one main page scroll - not a set amount of posts per page ending up with multiple pages with posts.

    How do i set this?

    Thanks

    I worked it out. It was just doing this weird thing, where if I set it in Reading first it would remove all the featured content tag from the Customize area. Putting latest posts in the featured content area.

    Not sure what I have done but I seemed to overide it with persistance.

    That would have been the theme's transient not being deleted on changes - it does reset itself eventually by just visiting the Customizer :)

    Hi Zulf

    I downloaded the ready to go Ridizain child theme and created a ridizain-child directory - uploaded the content-php and css style sheet.

    Nothing has changed?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Tammy

    Hello Tammy,

    You don't need to create any directory. Simply upload/install the child theme just like you would any theme then activate it.

    Once activated the child theme will use the included content-home.php instead of the one in Ridizain to give you the results you are looking for i.e. solve the display full content including the gallery.

    Once you've got that going then let me know and we can work on getting all your posts one page :)

    Regards,
    Zulf

    Hi Zulf

    Ok. The download I got from your link is a folder with content and style sheet files.

    There is no other zip file? Which is why I went and created a directory.

    I deleted the directory on my server and now the site has defaulted to 2014.

    Ideas?

    Thanks

    Essentially what I did before works - blog posts are no longer excerpts and I have one continuous roll. So I went back tracked. Child Theme is installed and working.

    The only problem now is a black column on the left side menu bar bumping up against the centred blog feed?

    Don't know what this is or how to remove it? Looks like something that would be linked to a menu?

    can send blog link if it is easier for you to see issue?

    and also now some featured images are going full width and others not?

    this is in both the featured content area and the blog area?

    i prefer them the FIs consistently across the site not to go full width?

    actually Zulf i decided to go back to the original layout of 'excerpt'

    i think it looks better, and i just added a gallery widget on the right side content bar.

    my only question now with regard to this - and limiting the excerpt word/character space count - how do I fix the width parameter of the text excerpt box?

    i want the text to box in more and not spread like it currently is - tightening up the look of the central excerpt blog column.

    thanks !

    Could you expand on this a little more so that I understand the requirement please?
