First of all, I LOVE this plugin. As a developer who builds websites for a living, the tool you created is a lifesaver. I have only begun to tap into its power, but I'm quickly learning all the wonderful things it can do.
Currently I'm working on a photography website for a client. I use custom attachment taxonomies and terms so that my client can easily manage galleries by bulk uploading images and assigning them to the appropriate gallery via your plugin. It makes management SO much simpler. Images can also be associated with multiple terms and be included in different galleries without having to upload multiple versions of the image.
An example of the shortcode I'd use for a particular gallery is as follows:
[mla_gallery orderby="menu_order, ID ASC" size="thumbnail" post_parent=all tax_query="array(array('taxonomy' => 'image-gallery','field' => 'slug','terms' => 'desert-landscape'))"]
All images on the site simply live in the media library and do not have parents (i.e. attached to a page). I rely exclusively on the custom taxonomy terms to manage and organize the site's photos.
The gallery thumbnails link to the attachment page, where we have additional (custom field) information, including print prices, sizing information, etc. I'm trying to use the next_image_link()and previous_image_link() functions to allow navigation to the adjacent photos in the gallery without requiring the user to go back to the gallery. This works fine, except for when a particular image belongs to more than one term, and the function's results become unreliable.
While I do have some basic PHP skills, solving this issue is above my pay grade. Is this an issue that can be resolved given my current situation, or is there a better way to approach this?
Much thanks! -Todd
