    Hi, I have created a Gallery field with ACF Pro, added 3 images and then added the ACF-VC Integrator to the page. However the output on the front end just displays the text “Array” instead of an image gallery. Have I missed something?

    Thanks for your assistance

    Hi @marvelcreative,
    I just did some tests and I didn’t experience the error.
    But I can see that you have the error, so I would like to have some more information.

    What version do you use of ACF-VC Integrator, Advanced Custom Fields and WPBakery Page Builder.

    If possible, I would like to see pictures of the settings for the gallery field in Advanced Custom Fields and on the item in WPBakery Page Builder.
    So I am better able to try to recreate the error.

    Best regards
    Frederik

    Hi Frederik,

    Thanks for your help.

    ACF-VC Integrator version 1.7.3

    WPBakery Page Builder 6.0.3

    ACF Pro v5.8.2

    Here are the screenshots you requested:

    Thank you for the information.
    Unfortunately, it has not helped me to recreate the error myself.

    Therefore, I would just like to know if you are using the WPBakery element called ACF-VC Integrator or if you use the element called Advanced Custom Fields.

    Because the element called Advanced Custom Fields is included in the WPBakery page builder but does not support many of the fields.

    If you use the ACF-VC Integrator item, it is possible that you can send a picture of the settings on the element itself.

    Hi Frederik,

    Yes I am using the Integrator element.

    Hi @marvelcreative,
    It’s very strange I can’t see any reason why the gallery field shouldn’t work for you.

    Is it possible that you can try to switch to another theme and see if it solves the problem.
    If it doesn’t, then try disabling plugins to see if it is one of those that creates the problem.

    Hi Frederik,

    It appears that it is my theme that is causing the problem. I am using Impreza theme. When I switched to TwentyNineteen it worked. Is there any technique to get it working with my theme, or is it just bad luck?

    In TwentyNineteen I get the 4 images from my gallery field displayed side by side. Is this the correct functionality for the Gallery? Is there any option to display the images as scrolling slider one at a time, or to show thumbnails and click to see a larger version?

    I appreciate that may be beyond the remit of this plugin, but I just wondered as I couldn’t see any examples of screenshots for this feature.

    Thanks,
    David

    It should be possible to make it work with the theme, but i do not have access to the theme but i will try to find out if I can get it.

    The technique behind the way it shows the field is right now that it takes the pictures IDs and runs through a foreach loop and places the IDs in a standard wordpress gallery shortcode https://codex.wordpress.org/Gallery_Shortcode

    The gallery shortcode itself can be affected by the theme, for example. if the theme is made for it then it should be possible to get lightbox function on the pictures.
    But if you want it to work with a slide function, it is something that has to be made custom.

    However, I have made it possible to change the output from the field using a filter hook.
    So if you have another shortcode that has slide function and lightbox then it should be possible to use the filter hook to use the shortcode for output.

    This filter hook would affect the output from the gallery field:
    You just has to place the code in your function.php file in your theme/child-theme

    add_filter('acfvc_gallery','acfvc_custom_gallery_output',10,4);
    function acfvc_custom_gallery_output ( $output, $field, $gallery_options, $post_id ) {
    	//$output - ACF-VC default output
    	//$field - ACF field data
    	//$gallery_options - Settings for the gallery field that have been set through the acf-vc element or as default settings
    	//$post_id - The post id
    
    	return $output;
    }

    Hope it’s answer enough for now, I try during today and get myself access to the theme so I can get the error resolved.
    If you need help with the filter hook then this is something I can also help with.

    Best regards
    Frederik

    Hi @marvelcreative,

    I have now been in contact with the theme developers and found out what the bug was, and have released a new version of plugin (1.7.4) where the bug has been fixed.

    Best regards

    Sorry to jump in on another thread but i think i’m having the same issue with Salient.

    Using an image gallery within salient itself, the gallery thumbnails aren’t present, almost like it’s missing the image file/link – src just says unknown.

    However clicking on the broken click the image still appears in the popup.

    Could this be related at all?

    Hi @jbennett360,
    To me it doesn’t seem to be related to each other the 2 errors.

    But if it is I can get you to create a new thread where you then send me a link to the website and version number on WordPress, ACF, WPBakery Page Builder, ACF-VC Integrator and on your theme (Salient).

    Best regards
    Frederik
