Support » Plugin: FooGallery - Image Gallery WordPress Plugin » Only shortcode, no gallery posts?

  • Resolved Jani Uusitalo


    The description page clearly says the plugin features a “Gallery custom post type”, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to publish or even preview those posts. I can add galleries and use the short link on other post types, but the editor for galleries has no “preview” functionality and there’s no way to view gallery posts on the front end on their own. I’d expect to be able to view the galleries at /(gallery_post_type_slug)/(gallery_post_slug).

    Looking at the custom post type code (includes/class-posttypes.php), the ‘public’ and ‘rewrite’ args to register_post_type() have been set to false, which according to Codex documentation causes what I’m seeing. The args variable has a filter so I could override it; does this imply that I’m intended to add a filter to have the galleries work as a viewable post type and not just something used behind the scenes by the plugin?

    Hello Jani

    There is no public gallery post type, and even if you overrode the args to make it public, there is still no way to actually render the gallery, without writing more code that is specific to your theme.

    When I first starting writing the plugin, my idea was to do exactly what you are after, but after investigating this with mulitple themes, it no longer seemed viable to support as I would then need to provide different layouts. going the shortcode route, means it works with all themes and I do not need to worry about layout at all.

    All right, thanks for the response. As I said, the shortcode approach works just fine so I’ll have to stick with that, and create my own custom post type if/when necessary.
