Gallery is not loading

  1. Hello,

    I made a pretty simple wordpress website. I basically only use the gallery that cms with wordpress, without any additional plug ins. However when I open the page and click on a page no pictures are shown, only when I click on the same page / category twice or three times the pictures are shown. I dont know what to do, people think there are just no pictures and dont try to press a button two or three times, they just leave.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks for your help.

    The blog I need help with is sweetcolour.wordpress.com.

  2. . I basically only use the gallery that cms with wordpress, without any additional plug ins.

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install any plugins.

    Please post the URL starting with http:// for the exact site you are working on.

  3. I am using Firefox 17 and the galleries are loading for me on all of your pages.

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If it’s still happening, let us know exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/ and also post any error reports you get.

  4. I'm also using FF 17 and, for me, the Gallery images on the OP's site are not loading on first click. I have to click away from the page and then back to the page and only then do the images load. Same thing in Chrome 23.

  5. Please rename the word 'ids' to 'include' in your gallery shortcode.

  6. @kardotim, "ids" is what is generated as a result of inserting a Gallery from the new Media Manager.

  7. Yeah I just noticed that :( I'll report it to the developers to fix it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  8. I replaced "ids" with "conclude", now it feels like only half the pictures are loading and that only after repeated refreshing.

  9. Not "conclude" but "include" and I suggest that you wait until kardotim or another Happiness Engineer or Staff person replies back.

    I just went through the list and did everything, it's still happening. Tried replacing my gallery code "ids" with "include" as well. I'm using Chrome23 and there are no error reports. The gallery just doesn't load unless I hit refresh whenever I visit a page with a gallery.

  11. As @kardotim (Staff) has reported this to the developers, let's hope that it won't be too long before they find a solution. It is a holiday in the US, Europe and many other places today (Dec. 25)

    @sweetcolour, everything loads really well for me now in Chrome23.
