    Hi, thanks for this “non-destructive” gallery.
    1. Does it really leave the site empty of any garbage code on deactivation/uninstall ?

    2. is it WPML-ready, like for :
    – settings (copy)
    – captions (translations)

    Regards.

    Hi,

    1. Yes, it doesn’t create anything in the database, nor any files.

    2. The settings will be the same for all languages, however, it doesn’t have code related to WPML nor Polylang. The only issue I could see is with titles, captions/descriptions, but there are filters available in the plugin so in 3-4 lines of code, you can definitely implement the translations exactly the way you want them. More information about this here: https://meowapps.com/meow-gallery-tutorial/#Modify_captions. I should probably add a little example on how to do this with WPML.

    Definitely include WPML compatibility, otherwise it’s not a solution.

    For the test I did, your galleries are not “non destructive” as I expected. When disabling the plugin all what is left is an unmanaged Gutenberg block, eventually changeable to HTML, which is not the asked behaviour and need manual update. Am I right. If so, this is not a solution either for that reason.

    Why isn’t it a solution? 🙂 I am not sure what you mean by being a solution or not (I am not a native speaker, so maybe I miss the nuance). But filters let you do whatever you like, to in 3 lines you can add that feature/compatibility exactly the way you want it. Yes, I’ll add an example of filter one day.

    Of course, that is expected. Gutenberg Blocks can’t be magically replaced when you disable a plugin. So a Meow Gallery Block will always be one – and if you uninstall the plugin, the website will continue to work and display a gallery without any issue (as it is using the gallery shortcode), and if you want to edit it, of course it will have to be converted back to a Gutenberg Gallery through a few clicks – but nothing will be really broken and usable. Try another Gallery System for example, and you will be stuck, there will be no alternatives. It’s impossible to do better, but if you know how, I am very interested, and I will implement it for sure 🙂
