New Gallery formats aren't working as expected.
rectangular gallery displays only 4 of 7 images. Square displays all 7, but first image is larger than the rest.
The blog I need help with is dougstinson.wordpress.com.
same problem here. my theme is nishita, my blog is http://holzfeder.wordpress.com/
Please provide links to specific posts where this problem is happening.
Start with http:// so the links are clickable.
If this is a bug, then staff needs to see them in order to determine how to fix it.
The new “type” parameter, especially square and circle” work best in multiples of 3, otherwise the “leftover” thumbnails are sized to fill the entire width of the content posting area. This is how it works.
Here is the code:
[gallery type="rectangular" ids="497,498,499,500,501,502,503"]
and here is the link to the blog post:
Do all the images show up if you default back to the thumbnail grid style?
Do you have the mosaic set as default in your Dashboard>Settings>Media? If so, you needn’t add type=”rectangular” to your Gallery shortcode.
All images show up in the default thumbnail style and in the square style. It is only in “rectangular” that only 4 of the 7 show.
I’ve tried it both ways: setting mosaic as the default and no special shortcode and not having it as a fault and using the special short code. I’ve also tried doing both!
All the images are visible in the Photo Carousel, so I’m stumped!
I’ve tagged this for Staff assistance; please be patient while they get back to you.
@holzfeder since you are having the same problem with Nishita, please give us a direct link to the post where this is happening, starting with http:// to make it clickable.
Thank you, justjennifer
I cannot give you a link because I tried a square gallery with 4 pictures but I wont publish it , it looks terrible.
After Justjennifers message telling that it only works with multiples of 3 I made the gallery with just 3 of the pictures (which also does not look much better: 2 on the top, 1 down, not really a nice mosaic): http://holzfeder.wordpress.com/2012/12/13/showing-more-power/ (the gallery is at the bottom)
I have also tested this, and you are correct: this is not functioning as intended.
I’ve alerted the internal team, and I will report back.
Thank you for bringing our attention to this!
@zandyring- again, thanks. Please let them know that most every responsive/flexible width theme is involved, not just Nishita. There have been a number of forum threads on this.
Thanks @justjennifer – I did talk to the team and there is some awareness on this, so the wheels are in motion.
In the meantime, I recommend using a different gallery display option until a new fix is deployed.
I am having a similar problem with the same code:
[gallery type="rectangular" ids="2848,2849,2850,2851,2852,2853,2854,2855,2856,2857,2858,2859,2860,2861,2862,2863"]
The problem that I have is that the pictures will be displayed when Internet Explorer is used but not with google chrome.
Also when Internet Explorer is used the first picture is stretched out and deformed.
Thank you for the report on that, Cookingacrossthe globe. Our recommended browsers are Firefox and Chrome, so it’s interesting to know that you’re seeing an issue with Chrome. What version are you using?
We are currently looking into a solution for this issue. We’ll post back once it’s deployed. Thanks for the report!
We pushed out a fix for this a little while ago. If you are following this thread and have experienced an issues with tiled galleries. Please check out the problem posts again. If you still notice a display issue, please post a link here with the browser you are using to view it.
I’ve check all of the links provided in this post and they are looking great to me.
I’m thinking that this may be due to the size of the original image you are uploading, rather than the problem I linked to above. Your images are 3648×2746 pixel dimension. These images are being dynamically resized to their display size on your site (considerably smaller pixel-wise) and there is every reason to resize your images in an image editing program before uploading, including preserving image clarity, shortening image loading time and maximizing your 3GB of free storage space.
@michaelfields– Thanks! Nishita is looking good (fixed width with sidebar) as well as Yoko (responsive width). No dropped images and all “type” Galleries resize well to a resized browser window in a responsive width theme. I’ll continue checking other themes as time allows.
