I love your plug-in; it’s been absolutely perfect for displaying images on my photo blog! However, I’ve been having some issues recently that I think I’ve traced back to Slickr Flickr. I use the Autofocus theme, and I’m am updated to WordPress version 3.3.2.
Recently, my blog entries have suddenly stopped showing up entirely, aside from the title and featured image. Not just the gallery, but the whole body of the posting goes blank. For example, you can compare the 10/9/11 and 10/15/11 posts, which do NOT contain the slickr-flickr short code, with the other posts, which now appear empty. Do you have any ideas as to what might have caused this issue and how to resolve it? Thanks so much for your help!
I believe FancyBox might be stripping out the content. FancyBox is bundled with AutoFocus.
Firstly go to Slickr Flickr Admin LightBox option and choose FancyBox.
Next see using Slickr Flickr with other lightboxes and follow the instructions to prevent FancyBox from autoboxing all images that are handled by Slickr Flickr.
I chose FancyBox and added the custom expression as suggested, but I’m still have the same issue. Also, I noticed that the gallery shows up in some posts and doesn’t strip the content (on the 8/23/2011 entry, for example), but in those instances, the slideshow feature doesn’t work. Do you have any other recommendations for what might be malfunctioning?
A couple of things
1. Post of August 23rd
This works because the code produced by Slickr Flickr is NOT being mangled on this page
The above code is the code being produced by Slickr Flickr – you can tell this because the rel=”fancybox_186″ on each photo matches the enclosing container <div id=”flickr_day332_186″ class=”slickr-flickr-gallery”>
2. Cut and Paste Error
There is an error in the FancyBox filter – it is not being parsed correctly and hence being ignored – what you need to do is remove the new line/carriage return in the filter expression.
