[Resolved] NextGEN Gallery: Album gallery pages are blank

  • Plugin Author Mark Jeldi

    @mark-jeldi

    Hi,

    I just had this come in via email. It’s not related to Optimizer (rather a conflict with another plugin), but thought I’d post it in case it helps someone out…

    The scenario:

    The user’s site had NextGEN Gallery properly configured, with one album containing two galleries correctly set up. This was being called on a WordPress Page with the [album id=1 template=compact] shortcode which displayed as expected.

    However, when we clicked either of the two galleries displayed, the page would reload (with “album=1&gallery=1” query string parameters attached to the URL as normal), but the gallery would not display, and there was zero HTML output in the source from NextGEN.

    The fix:

    While it’s uncertain exactly which plugin caused the conflict in this case, the problem did resolve itself after disabling all plugins (except NextGEN Gallery and Optimizer). After enabling them all again one-by-one (to spot the source of the trouble), we found all plugins were able to be reactivated without breaking the album gallery pages again (though do check them individually as your situation may differ).

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers,
    Mark.

    Update:

    I’ve just had another user contact me with the same problem, only this time with very few plugins. I noticed the one thing they both had in common was that “Jetpack by WordPress.com” (v.2.1.1) was installed…

    Deactivated it. Re-activated it. Problem solved!

    Cheers,
    Mark.

    Update 2:

    It appears Deactivating / Reactivating Jetpack only solves this issue by disconnecting it from your WordPress.com account. If you login again, the issue will return.

    However, there is a proper fix…

    1. Navigate to Plugins –> Editor –> “Jetpack by WordPress.com” and open “jetpack/class.jetpack-post-images.php”

    2. Use your browser’s Search tool to find the following line…
    $html = apply_filters( 'the_content', $html->post_content );

    3. Replace the above line with the following…
    $html = $html->post_content;

    Thanks to kaichen for posting this fix. I have tested it, and it does indeed bring back NextGEN’s album gallery pages (though you may want to check your in-use Jetpack functionality for any issues).

    Cheers,
    Mark.

    2. Use your browser’s Search tool to find the following line…
    $html = apply_filters( ‘the_content’, $html->post_content );

    3. Replace the above line with the following…
    $html = $html->post_content;

    Hello, after recent jetpack updates this line is no longer to be found. Do you have a recent suggestion? My galleries vanished again.

    Hi Mathias,

    The latest version of NextGEN Gallery (v1.9.12) appears to have resolved this issue, so you might want to try updating if you haven’t already…

    Additionally, you’ll want to use the new [nggalbum id=x] shortcode instead of [album id=x] (where x equals your gallery ID). I believe the generic label of the old shortcode was part of the conflict.

    I hope this helps!

    Cheers,
    Mark.

    Hello Mark,

    thank you for your advice. Yes, now everything works fine. There was another plugin interfering with NextGen Gallery (Facebook Like Thumbnail) and I am happy that the workaround is no longer needed.

    I guess, the topic is closed now 😉

    Hi Mathias,

    You’re very welcome, and that’s great to hear you found the cause of the conflict. Thanks for sharing your findings.

    Jetpack now comes with this in place it seems.

    Jetpack has
    $html = $html->post_content;
    in the class.jetpack-post-images.php file now. However, the Sharing part of the jetpack plugin dropdowns don’t work with NextGen active. Any suggestions?
