Support » Plugin: CataBlog » Catablog Gallery Template Issue

  • I recently found the Catablog plugin and it is EXACTLY what I have been looking for to organize my posts.

    I created the gallery and added the shortcode to a page. Then I used the template=”gallery” in order to make it have thumbnails. However, it is not allowing me to use the gallery format and I have scoured tutorials trying to figure out what I am doing wrong.

    Whenever I add the template=”gallery” to my shortcode, it gives me this error:
    You must use the id attribute in the catablog_gallery Shortcode

    Has anyone else had this issue and been able to solve? Thanks.

  • Hi when you are adding a shortcode to display your gallery it must have an ID. Here is an example of a shortcode with and ID.

    [catablog_gallery id="57"]

    In your case you might be adding the template=”gallery” to the shortcode. Then the shortcode would look something like this.

    [catablog_gallery template="gallery" id="57"]

    Remember your ID will be different. Please check the following instructions to help you further.

    Let me know if the above makes sense to you.

    Thank you

    Thanks so much for your response.
    I do include the ID in my shortcode, and it still doesn’t work. Here is what I have tried:
    [catablog_gallery template=”gallery” id=”5630″]
    [catablog_gallery id=”5630″ template=”gallery”]

    And this is what it looks like:

    I would love any other suggestions or advice!

    Hi try the following shortcode.

    [catablog id=”5630″ template=”gallery”]

    Thanks again for your help, that code didn’t help… now it is just showing all of the thumbnails from all of the galleries on that one page.
    I am perplexed! 🙂 😐

    Hi, how many CataBlog galleries do you have? Also that ID number above looks a bit odd to me. I have created a few galleries and all my ID’s are small numbers. Can you verify that you are getting the correct ID? Do you have more than 50 images all up between all the galleries?

    If you only want to display a certain number of images, the best option is to assign them to a Category. The following shortcode is an example. For example create a gallery named fruit and then you could create a category named apples. The following is a list of different kind of apples that you could add to the category red apples, green apples, yellow apples etc etc.

    [catablog template=”gallery” category=”your category name here”]
