Support » Plugin: Document Gallery » Can’t use taxonomies

  • Resolved AdRock952


    I am having problems displaying the gallery using taxonomies.

    I created a custom taxonomy called application-forms and added it to each of my media attachments. Also each of my media attachments were uploaded to a page called Application Forms (slug: application-forms).

    On the Application Forms page i’ve added the following shortcode
    [dg fancy=true descriptions=true taxon_name=application-forms]

    I get the following message when viewing the page

    The taxon value entered, “taxon_name”, is not valid.

    Hi adrock952,

    The taxonomy support in DG requires that the attachments themselves have the taxon. If I understand your description correctly, it sounds like the parent page, but not the attachments have the custom taxon.


    Hi Dan

    I added some code where I could add taxonomies to media file. I’ve added a taxonomy to each of my media files and because there could be loads each for a different page, i created a taxonomy. I’ve only got one so far.

    These ones i’m trying to add is for a page called Application Forms.

    Could it be because the taxonomy and the page have the same name?

    Hi AdRock952!

    The message You’ve got indicates that there is no such taxon “taxon_name” in Your WordPress instance.
    If You haven’t explicitly defined taxonomy name it should be set to some default one. Generally category-related plugins use taxonomy category.

    Please try out:
    [dg fancy=true descriptions=true category=application-forms]

    Hope this would help You.
    Please don’t hesitate to let us know if You run into any further issues.
