Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » 2.7rc1 and [gallery] shortcode

  • Hi all,

    Upgraded to 2.7RC1, and very much enjoying it. However, I’m having a problem with images/media.

    I went the media library, added a lot of images, then created a new page and associated five of the new images with it. If I then put the [gallery] shortcode in, I should get the five images displaying, shouldn’t I? Instead, I get nothing. I can add the images from the library using the Add Image button, but they way I’ve done it should work – or am I wrong?

  • I would like to confirm exactly YorkshireLad’s issue in WP 2.7.1

    Sequence of events is:

    1. Bulk Upload images to media library
    2. Sometime later create a new post and save it
    3. Go to media library and View ‘unattached’ images
    4. use new feature in 2.7 to ‘attach them to a post’
    5. seems to work as media library shows images attached to a post
    6. put in gallery shortcode
    7. preview post – gallery is empty

    NB: Gallery works OK for me if I upload the files at the time of writing the post, but this is not always the case.

    I’d say this is a bug – did you get any resolution yet YorkshireLad?

    Aha – solved it (for me)…

    I disabled the wp-omatic plugin and it works now.

    For what it’s worth, the linked instructions for Gallery Shortcode do not clarify the happy path for inserting images into a post so that they appear in a neatly arrayed gallery, but not in the post following the gallery within that post.

    When doing the intuitively obvious thing (add images to library, then select them for post), the images appear in the gallery and in the post.

    Could someone please update the instructions for Gallery Shortcode so that people know what NOT to do, and what results they will get if they do this-or-that?

    I’m actually a web veteran, but this one has me spinning in circles.

    @yorkshirelad Did you ever solve this issue?
