    Could you please update the gallery shortcode handler. It does not handle new gallry shortcode attributes like include and exclude.

    The Gallery shortcode handler is part of WordPress core, and not generally something impacted by Themes.

    Do you have the same problem when using a different Theme?

    The plaintxtBlog theme overwrites the WP default gallery shortcode handler. I don't know of many themes that do this. I had to comment out the code in the functions.php file in order to let the default WP shortcode handler do it's job. Which is fine for me, but I think the author of this theme has used their own gallery shortcode handler to render theme specific attributes in the HTML. So, I thought it might be best if they updated their code to handle the newer gallery shortcode attributes, like include and exclude, etc.

    Well, I'll be!

    Yeah, a current Theme would not be permitted to do that. This Theme hasn't been updated for three years; you might want to consider using a more recent Theme, or simply keep using a forked version of it.

    Geez! I didn't notice how long it's been since it was updated. I've been inheriting this theme for three years now...might be time to just roll my own!
