    Hello @janciriack,

    Would it be possible for you to create a test page with a meow gallery in it so that I can see what’s causing the issue 🙂 ?

    Ideally 2 or 3 galleries with different layouts.

    Best regards,



    Hi Thomas,

    i created the following test page:

    It is empty though. I can see the Gutenberg code in the code editor and the visual editor says “Please click here to refresh the preview”.

    Would it help if I give you admin access to the site?

    Regards, Jan

    Hi @janciriack,

    We can’t access the admin of your WordPress website, it’s again the rules of those forums and might get us into troubles with the WordPress team if we do so.

    So every time you click on the Refresh button of the gallery in Gutenberg, nothing shows up, except that message? Have you looked into your PHP Error Logs?

    Hi guys,

    I found that the error was caused by an outdated action I added earlier to the post_gallery hook. So this topic according to the title is resolved.

    However, my original intention was to add a custom lightbox to the wordpress native gallery. As the Gutenberg gallery block does not support the post_gallery hook, I tried Meow Gallery and got the post_gallery hook working. Unfortunately, I lose Meow’s entire functionality when generating the gallery’s markup wihtin the action. Do you have any hints what’s a good way to add a custom lightbox to the gallery, either wordpress native or Meow?

    Shall I open another topic for this issue?

    Normally, a custom lightbox should hook itself by using JS, not really modify the output of the gallery. But you can always try to add some code if you really need it through search/replace with regexps. But I wouldn’t recommend it. Why not using an already made Lightbox? Like Meow Lightbox 🙂 They will all work right away.

    I doubled checked with the lightbox I use and you are right, it should work without changing the markup. That would be the simplest solution. If I can’t make it work I will checkout Meow lightbox. Thank you for that eye opening!
