    Are these WPPA+ Landing pages still needed?

    I executed a “Bulk Block Conversion” plugin which converted all of my classic block posts and pages to Gutenberg. This saved me a ton of time so that I didn’t have to convert each post one-at-a-time manually.

    However, the plugin did not insert the Pages shortcode back into the new Gutenberg shortcode block (it left the new Gutenberg shortcode block blank).

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    One more reason NOT to use Gutenberg for the next 10 years until the most annoying bugs are fixed…

    Yes, if a link from a widget attempts to display albums or photos other than via lightbox, it needs a landing page.

    If you do not want different landing pages for all widgets, just make one yourself; give it any arbitrary name and as content only the shortcode [wppa type="landing"]
    Make sure it does not appear in any menu.
    Set all ‘Link pages’ in Table VI to this page.

    Alternatively: install plugin “disable gutenberg” and restore a backup of your db, if available…

    I have created a new “Photos Landing” page and included the shortcode.
    I then set all the ‘Link pages’ in Table VI to this new landing page
    I deleted the six landing pages listed previously.
    I tested, and all the widgets are now using this new single landing page.

    As for Gutenberg, we are proceeding full-speed ahead on conversion to the new Block editor since eventually we’ll be assimilated by the Borg 😉

    If anyone uses the “Bulk Block Conversion” plugin be aware that, at the current time, it does not convert posts/pages correctly if they contain shortcodes such as WPPA+, Shortcodes Ultimate, page builder shortcodes, etc.

    Thank you for the assistance, Jacob! A small donation is on its way, my friend.
