Envira Tests

Here are the remaining issues with Envira:

  1. No video in dynamic galleries! So painful
  2. Mobile version of galleries has no easy full-screen mode? In Chrome? In Safari?


• Adding metadata captions from Lightroom doesn’t come through the plugin and into Envira. Now Lightroom caption metadata comes through in the ‘description’ field of the normal Media editor view of WP’s UI but in the “Caption” field of the UI inside Envira Gallery. Also, images I’ve captioned in LR don’t show up in the image editor in Envira’s UI. They do show up fine in the gallery, however.

• As soon as I make a LR change on a photo and republish, it jumps that photo to the beginning of the sorting order. My settings under “Images” still show “Title” and “A–Z Ascending” but the images do not follow this setting until I click it to something else and then back to the same setting again.
• Dynamic galleries aren’t even showing captions added through Envira UI in WordPress.
• Number 2 has been semi-resolved. The dynamic galleries (like the one immediately below this text) are now showing both the title and caption even though both are disabled in the default dynamic gallery settings.
• Thumbnails are blank in lightbox view on the Static/Normal gallery. This is so tricky to isolate the source of the problem. I’ve disabled all other plugins and tried WP’s default theme. I think it may be SiteGround’s .htaccess modification that’s adding the half duplicate URL to lightbox thumbnail images?:

• Editing a photo from LR to Photoshop doesn’t trigger for re-publishing. I have to add a keyword or something.
7. This code, containing multiple tags for an auto-created dynamic gallery, no longer works (means much of my site is now broken):
(envira-gallery-dynamic id=”tags-FJack-03,FJack-04,FJack-01,TL,ray,anto,pastor,what” columns=”2″)


You need a space before “columns” and captions show up below image if you have column count specificied in short code. They show up on mouse-over, atop the photo if you don’t.

What is all this code?:

The gallery immediately below this text is a basic dynamic gallery via this code: (within brackets) envira-gallery-dynamic id=”tags-jpopjm”. It contains a YouTube video of Antarctica tagged “anto”. The video thumbnail appears, but it is not playable.

See how this one, with a defined column setting, shows only the title, but no caption? The Dynamic Gallery settings are global, right, so since I have it checked to show both title and caption, where is the caption? I’ve enabled captions in the lightbox view and you can see they appear successfully there.


I’m not sure what is happening with the static gallery below. It’s called via shortcode: ”
