Gallery Function Removed in 2.8?

  • I have upgraded from 2.71 to 2.8. Even since the upgrade, the Gallery function disappeared. I could upload individual pictures as usual, but the Gallery tab did not appear, leaving only “From Computer”, “From URL”, “Media Library”. Manually typing [gallery] in the HTML editor gives an empty gallery.

    Only when I click “Insert into Post” link of each picture, the Gallery mode reappears.

    I really need this function, so if it’s removed, I will definitely go back for 2.71. Thanks.

    Yes, I think it is removed. I did not notice this, as I am using NextGen Gallary.

    By the way, you can report WordPress at wordpress trac…

    The Gallery is still available in 2.8. Try deactivating all plugins and check to see if this resolves the problem. If it does, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    Removed all plugins. Still no Gallery page.

    Sometimes even if I insert the pics and then come to the page again, the gallery is not re-created.

    just an update:

    The gallery feature is still working (as in 2.8.1). May I was missing something..

    I also have this problem, one day it worked without problems, then it dissapered. I have tried to update to latest wp version, but to no avail. Have noted that I get an error on page, maybe the issue is javascript related – can somebody help with an explanation?
