Support » Theme: Spun » Gallery posts show square thumbnails instead of circles

  • Resolved Judderbug


    Hi, thanks for a fab theme! I’m also having an issue with my gallery posts having square thumbnails, i’ve tried your suggestions from the other thread, ( such as de-activating any plugin that could be a conflict (i had next gen, file gallery), regenerated all thumbnails and my galleries are still square.

    I’m attaching in the usual way of ‘add media’, be it a single image or new gallery, and testing all post formats, is there anything else I could have missed?

    It’s a child theme that over-rides the transparency/hover effect on the front page, but otherwise all as the original.

    … just started this on a fresh thread and thought i’d link to an example page (, if i upload fresh files not from the media library, they appear as circles (yay). Though i have a couple of duplicates to detach, and i had delete the gallery code as it also showed the square gallery below, is this normal and is there any way to have the title at the top of the page?

    Yes, this is the expected behavior. In a Gallery formatted post, any of the post’s attached gallery images will appear above the post title and subsequent information. If you add a shortcode to a Gallery formatted post, you will see your gallery twice.

    If you want the post title to come first, you need to make it a Standard post, and add the gallery shortcode in the content area. The standard WordPress gallery will not display as circles, just rectangles, because it’s not a Gallery formatted post.

    You may be able to use a plugin to generate circle galleries for the standard WordPress gallery. Jetpack does this now, I believe —

    Brill, thanks for such a speedy response. I’ve got the jetpack plugin doing circle galleries now so all sorted.
