    How do we get the permalink back?

    thanks for your time



    @christopherfabbri- When the Carousel was first introduced, many of us added a notice at the top of our Gallery posts that it was possible to right click on the first thumbnail and open the link in a new tab/window. That still works.

    But whether TPTB will bring back the Permalink in the Carousel is a good question, which only Staff can answer.



    Has anyone else experience the problem of clicking on the image thumbnail and instead of Carousel opening, the page with the full size image opens?

    It keeps happening to me randomly. I guessing it is some sort of bug in the programming.

    Also WordPress, thank you for making the EXIF optional.



    @laurenflotte-please give a direct link to a post where you see this is happening, starting with http://




    The link is
    But it doesn’t happen every time, just randomly

    Also, any updates on removing the comment section on the Carousel?



    Hi guys,

    after playing around with “title” a little bit I just found out that if you use _ (underscore) as the title, nothing will appear underneath the picture in the carusel. Of course, if you hover over the preview with your mouse the underscore will also show, but for the moment this is a acceptable “emergency solution”, if you don’t want the title to be shown.


    21forward can you please give us a direct link to a post/page with a Gallery where you see this happening? Starting with htttp://

    Here you go:

    Notice on the post page you can only comment if you have logged in (either by wordpress, twitter or facebook) but in the image carousel anyone with an email can post. I actually like the new commenting system on the image carousel, but I only want those logged in to post.


    Please make the carousel comment feature optional.



    The cropping of the bottom of the image in the carousel is still not considered fixed, right? Thanks.



    Could you just leave it like it was before this ”improvement”?
    I didn’t choose the carousel, to see my pics cropped after I uploaded hundreds of them.



    iammattthomas said above that the cropping issue is a bug.

    But I can confirm that it’s a bug and that it’ll be fixed before we announce the new carousel.



    Ok, thanks.



    Thanks for confirming that cropping of thephoto is a bug. Resizing the browser window doesn’t help fix the problem, of course, as that resizes things in the window (on the page). Resizing the brower window is separate from having a photo cropped within its own element on the page (which should *never* be done automatically by the wordpress carousel). I’m hoping you guys fix the bugs you introduced into the carousel soon. Perhaps you could in the meantime add a “bypass” carousel option so that the gallery would just go to the full-size pages (and we could all stopping nagging you about the changes to the carousel while you work out the bugs. ;-)) Thanks.



    OK, I see that instead of fixing the cropping problem in carousel, you are busy adding new unuseful features like ”load more posts”. When I click on ”load more posts” the blog shows the last together with the previous post. I don not need that. Not all PC’s are enough fast to load quickly 2 posts.
    If your goal is to convince me to leave wordpress you almost succeeded.
    Thank you.



    Please also see this thread, there seems to be an issue with the comments on the gallery.



    When will the missing bottom issue be resolved?



    Probably after I quit wordpress.



    The “Load more posts” issue is not the responsibility of the Staff member who is posting here on the carousel, gallery and image related issues. Other Staff members have been introducing “infinite scroll” to themes — a site wide change.
    See here for Disabling Infinite Scroll on your Blog
    Note that “disabling” the feature (when you use footer widgets) simply changes it from loading automatically to loading via the “Load More Posts” tab, and you can’t disable that “Load More Posts” tab from appearing without the Custom Design upgrade.



    The carousel just keeps getting worse and worse. I finally decided to just add a click “permalink” to each page to make sure someone sees my info. That’s very much needed in my case, I wish I just had a photoblog, which is what wordpress wants everyone to have apparently. And now they took away the permalink. I hated the permalink, and now want it back just because it’s better than what they have now. This is getting stupid. I went to wordpress to make my site clean and simple, now visitors can click on an image and know nothing about it. The info is too far down the page. I really hate the wordpress developers. I’m about to go back to dreamweaver so I can have some control. If I finally find a work around to avoid the carousel, who knows when they might add a “feature” that will make all my hard work useless…. again.


    @marccalvary, I’m so sorry to hear you’re frustrated! As iammattthomas mentioned, we’re working through the past carousel feedback we’ve received and making updates with that feedback in mind. A lot of people were opposed to the “Permalink” links before. In any case, there are in fact bugs to work out, and so clear and specific feedback is appreciated—especially feedback that includes links and screenshots. We won’t be able to make every request happen (since some of it’s conflicting!), but know that we are continuing to work on it.

    Regarding the text being too far down on the page, note that captions should appear just below the image unless it exactly matches the title (without special characters) and in that case the caption isn’t shown.

    Updates are still being made, so please stick around and continue to post specific feedback with links, screenshots, and clear explanations of any problems you find. Thank you!
