[resolved] Gallery Portfolio not working with Lightbox (8 posts)

    I've problems to create a gallery portfolio site like on demo page:

    I already read the documentation. It say:
    -> New Post
    -> Add Gallery (i choose here 6 images from mediathek)
    -> configure gallery (6 columns and link to data file)
    -> save & publish

    If I do it like this the page end up like the photo gallery on demo site:

    -> The lightbox is not working.
    This happens too if you put the gallery settings to "link to attachement"

    So both gallery options are working in the same way.
    Anybody with the same problem or a hint ?

    I'm using wordpress 3.5.1.

    I fixed the problem by changing the gallery tag

    1) open/edit the post
    2) click to "text view"
    3) there i found [gallery columns="6" ids="1,2,3 etc..."]
    4) now I added "link=file" to the tag
    -> [gallery columns="6" ids="1,2,3,4,6,6,7,8" link=file]

    and it works....

    It's a pity. Seems to be a bug in gallery options in the Mediathek of WordPress 3.5.1.

    Hey dirkr,

    I'm having the same issue, tried what you suggested with no luck, it actually took the gallery away. Funny thing is when I tried to install a gallery lightbox plugin, it sort of triggered the original one to work if you know what I mean, like when I was done scrolling through the plugins lightbox, hatches would kick in. Super annoying!

    Any thoughts on your tag suggestion?

    Never mind, I literally copy and pasted your gallery tag into my text field and it started working...not sure why that would be any different than what I had but whatever. You're right, seems like a huge bug, super annoying. Thanks for posting!

    One more note...the wordpress gallery wasn't even placing my columns I would choose in the tag either.

    I had some issues with the columns too. Especially changing them. It seems to work if I just use the code ;)
    At the beginning I also had some issues adding pictures. I had to remove the gallery and make a new one. But I think if you add the IDs in the code it will work.

    Nice...are you using this theme for anything right now? Would like to see what you did with it.

    Not really. I just played around and tested some featuers.
    Further more I deleted all my galleries yesterday because i integrated flickr on sites.
    see here: but don't expect something superb ;)

    I added a function to use tags for sites -> so that you find the sites with using tag cloud.
    What else? I added the caption and description of the featured image to the right site. you can see that at the only post on the site.

    I wanna try out some more things before I really come up with some content ;)
