Support » Plugin: Portfolio Gallery - Image Gallery Plugin » Can’t preview or view gallery, 404

    I don’t understand how anyone is supposed to use this. It seems to not be working at all.

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

    You need to use the plugin shortcode in any Page/Post to output the gallery at frontend.

    The plugin shortcode look likes this: [PFG id=123]


    OK but the preview function and permalink don’t work at all. If there’s a control on your editing screen, you need for it to work. When I create a gallery, and I click Preview and just get a big fail, what it looks like to me is that the developer was very sloppy and that the thing probably doesn’t work at all in the latest WordPress version. Why should I try various things to get it to work when there are obviously big holes in it?

    The plugin works on the shortcode.

    That permalink and preview functions are the default from WordPress.

    The plugin does not use them.


    Even though you didn’t write the code that makes them appear, you did supply the URLs that they try to use. This is not out of your control. You could override those, or make those controls do something useful, or at least display a message to the effect that the preview and view functions are not supported. Everyone else seems to manage to do something reasonable to prevent these links from giving 404 errors. It’s sloppy and makes me lose all confidence in the plugin.
