In the documentation for AESOP there is a note saying: “Some gallery types may not appear correctly, as themes are responsible for what the galleries look like.”
I assumed since Genji is designed to use AESOP it should not have any problem with a_type. But it seems there is a problem there. I inserted a gallery in four different styles and they all show the thumbnails with no style. Here is the short code I have:
[gallery columns="4" link="file" a_type="sequence" ids="288,286,287,285"] [gallery columns="4" link="file" a_type="grid" ids="288,286,287,285"] [gallery columns="4" link="file" a_type="thumbnail" ids="288,286,287,285"] [gallery columns="4" link="file" a_type="stacked" ids="288,286,287,285"]April 29, 2014 at 2:32 pm #984
On the righthand side of the page when creating a gallery, it shows you the shortcode to use, along with some instructions for the gallery. Also, you can always refer to the “Help” tab up top, and it gives a complete break down on instructions as well.

Strange. I do not get that message about the short code on my site.April 29, 2014 at 3:06 pm #987
Can you show me a screenshot of your admin interface where you created the gallery in WordPress?April 29, 2014 at 3:23 pm #989
Now I understand. I have to use the new Custom post type “Gallery” to create the galleries separately and then place the short codes in the posts. It was a little bit confusing because WP has its own default galleries, and that is what I used to create galleries earlier. What made me believe that using the default WP galleries is the right way to do this was the options there for “a_type” (thumbnail, grid, stacked, or sequence). They are all available in the regular WP galleries as well but they do not affect the appearance of the WP galleries. I think if there is a way to remove options from the regular galleries it would be less confusing. Also, I think more clear instructions on this needs to be added to the documentation for AESOP.
By the way, just FYI: the option “grid” does not work properly in RTL environment. Everything else works perfectly.April 29, 2014 at 3:26 pm #990
Yep this definitely uses WordPress native galleries, through a post type. When creating multiple galleries, I believe it’s easier to manage them from one central location.We also ran into several issues when using multiple galleries in one post, so it made sense to have them managed as a post type.
As far as documentation for galleries, it’s in three different locations:
I’m open to suggestions on other locations.
