Support » Plugin: Dynamic Content Gallery » DCG v4.0 testers needed!

  • Plugin Author studiograsshopper


    I know, I know, I’ve been promising version 4.0 of the DCG for a long time, but one of the reasons for the delay is that I haven’t received enough feedback from beta testers.

    So, want to help? If so, you can grab the development version from the Developers link above and try it out.

    It goes with saying (but I’ll say it anyway) – this is a beta, so don’t use it on a production site unless you’re prepared to sort out any problems that may arise from using untested software.

  • Hello, I just loaded the DCG 4.0 beta on my site. I removed the DCG 3.3.3 through ftp and loaded the beta as dashboard install.

    I uploaded and tested the 4.0 beta version before updating to wordpress 3.5.2; and DCG 4.0 beta worked perfectly.

    However, after updating to wordpress 3.5.2 the Dynamic Content Gallery Metabox does not retain the image url upon publishing/update the post.

    I have this same problem with DCG 3.5.2 after updating to wordpress 3.5.2.


    First of all, 4.0 is a big improvement management-wise.

    Unfortunately, there seems to be a bug where the slider refuses to pull in the right image size. It always uses the full-size image, even though thumbnails that match the slider size have clearly been generated (verified via FTP). I’ve tried checking and unchecking ‘hard crop’, but no love.

    I have already found the problem. It’s in dcg-common-core.php in the get_featured_image function. For some reason you’re referencing non-existent image size names here:

    $size = 'DCG_Main_' . $dfcg_options['gallery-width'] . 'x' . $dfcg_options['gallery-height'] . '_' . $dfcg_options['crop'];

    The result of this concatenation is an iamge size that does not exist, as the only image sizes added by DCG are DCG_Main_hc, DCG_Main_br and DCG_Thumb. I replaced the line with this and it now works:

    $size = 'DCG_Main_hc';

    Note that a similar fix is required to make thumbnails work. Replacing:

    $thumb = get_the_post_thumbnail( $id, 'DCG_Thumb_100x75_true', $args );


    $thumb = get_the_post_thumbnail( $id, 'DCG_Thumb', $args );

    in dcg-gallery-core.php will fix them.
