LightBox Gallery Anomaly

    Hey there – I am using Alyeska and have been, to date, successfully using WPs gallery to insert a pop up lightbox gallery into a post – with the theme automatically taking care of the pop up lightbox effect when people click on the thumbnails displayed – the code shows [gallery link="file" ids="474,475,221"] – all good.

    Now, when I insert a newly created gallery into a post the image thumbnail links to the image’s attachment page and does not open up the lightbox pop up gallery even though I have “link to media file” selected in WP gallery settings – as per the norm. The code now shows [gallery ids="474,475,221"] – so missing link=”file” in the code suddenly.

    Question is why would it suddenly drop link=”file” from the code when I insert a gallery now?

    The only change is an update to WP 3.5.1. No new plugins. Latest theme version.

    The site in question is in development and password protected. If you’d like to take a look I would prefer to private message details if ok?

    Thanks a bunch:)

    Hello,

    This is a bug currently with WordPress. It doesn’t have anything to do with the theme. I just tried it on my end and get the same result. They’ve got in trac, so I’m sure it’ll get worked out soon.

    … but realistically, you can just type the link="file" manually in the meantime.

    Awesome – I should have checked in trac. And yes – an easy fix. Thanks for looking into it for me:)

    Is there any update to this? The person who will be updating the site I am working on is very limited computer skill wise, so I was hoping they wouldn’t have to go into the text editor to add anything. The fix is easy, but for someone who never ventures into the text editor, it would be nice if they didn’t have to.

    Looking at the comments on the trac ticket, it appears WordPress has fixed the issue for the next update. So I’d say we’re just waiting for WordPress to post v3.5.2. WordPress hasn’t posted an update since this topic was started.
