Link Malfunctions after Photo Gallery Carousel Upgrade
This thread was flagged earlier today for Staff attention. There’s another thread re: the same issues here > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/%C2%BFwhat%C2%B4s-happening-with-my-posts-with-galleries-and-the-enclosed-file-url?replies=2#post-946654
So, what can we do to solve the problem?
Thanks, timethief! I appreciate it.
We wait for Staff to respond.
Also note this please. There are pages of threads of people reporting a wide-spread technical “invalid activation key” issue. All have been flagged for Staff attention. If that’s what you need help with than I suggest taking a break for a few hours and returning. Hopefully, Staff will have fixed this by then.
I don´t understand what´s the solution. Foundingfamilies could you share with me what you found out, please? I´d appreciate it a lot. Thank You.
Thanks a lot, sorry I had not seen your last comment Timethief.
Not to worry. We are waiting for Staff and there is a very long line-up.
Similarly described problems here:
Sorry for the trouble!
We identified and corrected the issue. The affected blogs are each being fixed individually.
If yours has not been fixed yet, it should be in a few hours.
Thanks @macmanx-looking forward to hearing on the other thread(s) I linked to above as well as this is not a referral to sign up page issue. (I think)
Goodness no, that be one crazy referral scheme. It was just a crazy bug.
So wait the photo captions/descriptions broken links issue isn’t connected to the referral to the sign up page bug? If not, there’s still a problem? See above and https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/image-caption-links-broken-in-photo-carousel?replies=3#post-947484
(and are you channeling the Jamaican bobsled team? ;)
I believe it was connected. It may take a few hours for all affected blogs to be fixed though.
@macmanx-14 hours later, sorry to say no joy and I’m still experiencing the same problem as the OP. Any links that have been added to images, either in the caption or description fields, and which previously worked are now broken.
Since there’s no announcement in the Important Notice section on the front page of the forums, and since there are at least 2 dozen threads with people who are having problems with links of one sort or another, I apologize if I have overlooked some further announcement by Staff on this problem.
Hoping for good news soon!
Unfortunately, the script running to fix all of the affected blogs failed about half-way through.
We are already aware of all affected blogs, so if yours has not been fixed yet, it will be in a few hours.
Since there has now been a further announcement in the Sticky thread at the top of the forum that all blogs should be fixed, I’m sorry to say that the problem that the OP describes in this thread and which I also posted about in my forum thread is not resolved.
All links in photo captions and descriptions, which previously worked, are still broken.
I think this issue isn’t related to the one we’ve run the fixer for. We’re going to look into it separately now. (Thank you Jennifer for the ping)
Now fixed. :)
However, Image Captions that are links now have an intermediary step.
Previously, you could click on an image caption that contained a link and it led you directly to the link. Now clicking on the caption link opens the carousel and only when the image caption link is clicked in the carousel does it open the link.
