Support » Plugin: Simple Fields » Display Gallery in Simple Fields

  • Hello,

    I am using Simple Fields on my website as an extra source of content. In my Simple Field I want to display a Gallery. I click “add media”, select my images and click “insert gallery”. However, when I update my page and view it, it only displays the shortcode instead of displaying the actual gallery. When I view my Simple Field in standard view I can clearly see the gallery, and when I click html view I see the following.

    [gallery columns="5" rel="lightbox" ids="25"]

    As said, this is what is displayed instead of the gallery. Have I missed something here, or is it not possible to have galleries in a Simple Field?

    I haven’t tried the gallery function, but perhaps the filter for the gallery function is not fired from simple fields. Try and see if this helps:

    $content_from_simple_fields = <your code that fetches info from simple fields>;
    $content_from_simple_fields = apply_filters( 'the_content', $content_from_simple_fields );
    echo $content_from_simple_fields;

    Hi Pär,

    I tried this, but it only returns Array

    <?php $content_from_simple_fields = simple_fields_get_post_group_values($post->ID, "galleri-grupp", true, 2); 
    $content_from_simple_fields = apply_filters( 'Galleri', $content_from_simple_fields );
    echo $content_from_simple_fields;

    Perhaps I wrote it all wrong?

    i have the same probelm

    did you solved the issue

    i really would like to present next gen shortcode

    any clues


    hi just wanted to let everyoneknow
    that the above solution works!

    Hey Guys,

    I was on the same quest to figure out, why my jq lightbo auto plugin didnt work on simple fields wysiwyg fields and the tip to add the appley_filters() hook was awesome …

    maybe that should go into the faqs because its a pain when shortcodes and a lot of plugins wont work on simple fields

    here is my solution for lightbox support:

    $field_group_values = simple_fields_fieldgroup("content_widgets");
    foreach($field_group_values as $widget){
    $widget['content_widget_content'] = apply_filters( 'the_content', $widget['content_widget_content']);
    echo $widget['content_widget_content'];
