  • Resolved jmatthewgore


    Hi. I’ve been using this plugin for a year or two and have been happy with it, but it doesn’t seem to play well with my current theme, which allows full screen width images (outside the content body). To get an image to display properly in the theme, the procedure is to add the image full-size (centered or no style, to achieve two different effects).

    Sometimes it blocks the proper display size, and I have to remove the credit, refresh, change the image size, refresh, add the image credit back, etc… and then it will display properly. It works eventually, but it’s a pain.

    One of my options, to make my life simpler when posting in the future, is to simply remove this plugin.

    So, my question is… will this leave visible shortcode tags around all of my images from the past year or two (which is what it looked like when I just disabled it)? If so, is there any quick way to remove them all?

    The shortcodes will stay if you disable/delete the plugin, but there is a snippet in the FAQ that you can add to functions.php to effectively remove them from the output.

    As for the problem prompting you to remove the plugin, it should be easy to integrate Media Credit with that special theme to get a more seamless workflow. The default rendering is designed to look good in the WordPress default themes, but you can of course override the shortcode markup via the filter hook media_credit_shortcode.

    Also, the width style for the credit markup can be removed independently by returning 0 from the filter hook img_caption_shortcode_width.

    Got it. Thanks!

    Actually, I’d like to keep using it. The issue is not so much how it looks with my theme, it’s how it affects the process of adding images. In any case, I don’t know much about messing with filter hooks, but I guess I can investigate that route this afternoon and see what I can do.

    Thanks again.

    @jmatthewgore, were you able to work around the issue with the filter I suggested?

    No, I got sidetracked, and then we got that Gutenberg editor thing, and I realized that my new theme is going to have to be updated completely to work with Gutenberg… and I thought I’d better just leave it all alone until that gets sorted out.

    So, I’m still using your plugin, and still sometimes having alignment problems, but I usually get them squared away with a little fussing around.

    Thanks for checking in 🙂
