image size in gallery does not adjust width anymore?
I just noticed today that individual images from a gallery do not resize to fit the column width anymore. Instead each image is shown in its original size, which now bleeds into the side bar and cuts off half of the image. This was different until just a few days ago. Until now when clicking the thumbnail of a gallery, it showed the image resized to fully fit the width of the column. I am using MistyLook Theme. Here is a link to one of the galleries in my blog that exhibits this problem:
I’ve tried it in Firefox 2 and IE7, same result.
If you used the Gallery feature to insert those images, they seem to be actually displaying at full size because none of them are “clickable” leading to the full-sized image, which is not how I understood the Gallery feature to work.
Since we don’t have access to the guts behind the Gallery shortcode, I’d suggest contacting support about this problem.
@justjennifer: You’re right that bruderz must contact Support. Let me just note that bruderz did not describe the problem accurately; the link he’s given is not a post with a gallery – it’s the strange result you get when you click on the fifth thumbnail of this post (which has a gallery alright):
Same thing happens with all the thumbnails of that gallery.
You’re right Bruderz, there’s a resizing problem. I’ve got the same problem than you, and yersterday my photos were resized fine … I was not sure before reading your post (although I was sure I had tested my galleries …) but now, I’m really sure this problem did exist before !
See my post here (I did not see your post when publishing mine … ) : https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/gallery-ordering-and-image-sizing?replies=6#post-238054
Hope the WP support team will solve this problem ;-)
Oups, i wanted to write “now, I’m really sure this problem did NOT exist before !”. Sorry for this (I cannot modify my post, too bad :-( )
@justjennifer: yes I am using the gallery feature [gallery], for which we have no way to modify its behavior. I also agree that the gallery feature should be setup so that when viewing a particular image, it is scaled to fit the page, and also is click able, to link to the original sized image. Right now I tell people to use the browser option ‘View Image” to do this kind of thing.
@hervej: yes, it seems you do experience the exact same problem as I do. I thought maybe its a problem with my theme, but since you have a different one, I guess its not.
How do I contact support? I thought this is the support forum?
Sorry for the abrupt reply. No time to post again.
Just tried this in a test post on my own blog using “The Journalist” theme. No resizing is taking place on the Attachment pages on my theme either, so it’s not the theme, it’s the shortcode.
I also filed a Support ticket.
I think we know what’s wrong now. We fixed a bug. Turns out many themes depended on that bug. Code goblins are on the case.
Thank you Tellyworth! There’s also one more thing. Can you please ask them to look at this?
sounds great1 Thanks for checking it out so quickly.
So how does it work? Will each Theme creator/designer have to change their code now?
Great news ! Thanks for the Code goblins, and hope this won’t be too much work for them ;-)
Nice i’m not the only one with this problem
hope they can fix it soon…
The fix has been deployed. Give it another try.
yay, looks like it’s working again
It’s working too on my site. Thanks a lot !
Fabulous, many thanks!
The images are now resizing, but you still can’t upload a separate image to another post and insert it into a Post where there is a Gallery. The separate image becomes part of the Gallery rather than remaining a separate image. The method for doing this was first suggested in a forum post by Nick and used to work before this weekend’s changes.
No probs, sorry about that guys :)
Found a solution to that, justjennifer: Upload the image the normal way, SAVE THE POST, then click “Add an Image” again, click Gallery, delete the newly uploaded image, save again. It gets removed from the gallery BUT NOT from the media library, so you now have it as a separate image in the post.
