  • Resolved ndayakar



    After upgrading WordPress 2.7.1 to 2.8 manually, the K2 theme search form’s style has been changed and NextGEN image galleries in the post are not functioning properly.

    WordPress 2.8
    Theme – K2 1.0-RC7
    Plugin – NextGEN gallery Version 1.3.2

    1. K2 live search is not functioning after WP 2.8 upgrade. Please take a look at the search form style:
    Before upgrade –
    After upgrade –

    2. When we click on a thumbnail in NextGEN image gallery, images are not opening with thumbnail effect. The gallery can be viewed at

    Could someone please help to resolve these issues.

    Thank you,

    I have the exact same problem with K2 livesearch.

    Thanks for any help.


    Here is one more that have the same problem. NextGEN problem and the search thing!

    And the Livesearch is working when you disable NGG ?

    Live search is not working even after deactivating NextGEN gallery.

    So it’s not a NGG issue

    I upgraded to the latest nightly build (k2-1.0-RC7.4) as suggested in the k2 support thread The live search is working fine in this nightly build (tested in my local system).

    I have the same two issues—but NextGen works for me in Safari and Opera. Just not in Firefox on my Mac.

    I upgraded to 2.8 and upgraded next gen gallery at the same time…for whatever reason, the album stopped linking to the gallery images and the slideshow stopped working.

    Tried a few things including reverting to the old versions of each but ended up having to completely restore the backup.

    I won’t be upgrading in a hurry again.



    Thanks you ndayakar – the new K2 nightly build makes it work again.

    Now resolved.

    Not resolved for me! I updated K2 to the RC7.4 nightly, and am still having this error. The problem seems to be related to another error that I’m now having: Almost none of the pages (in the HTML sense) on my site load completely; the footer template doesn’t seem to load anymore, leaving a bunch of tags open. Only Pages (in the wp sense) with sidebarless=yes set (i.e., that don’t display the sidebars) load the footer, but of course without the sidebar, I can’t test whether AJAX search is working.

    I discovered that the Links widget, for whatever reason, was failing—and being the very last widget rendered on my site, I didn’t notice it missing, somehow. Removing the links widget got the footer back in there, but not AJAX. So, now I’m seeing two issues! Links widget doesn’t work, nor does AJAX.
