For example, my page code is [ gallery columns=”4″ ids=”167,168,169,170,171,172,173,174,175,176,177,178,179,180,181,182,183,184,185,186,187,188,189,190,191,192,193,194,195,196,197,198,199,200,201,202″ orderby=”rand” ]
This used to work fine. The page shows all of the thumbnails, but when any one is clicked, it now just shows a heading with previous and Next links.
The full-size images appear fine in the Media Library.
Yes — many thanks for the helpful comment.
By recreating the gallery with the option to open the media file instead of the attachment page this works.
But, there is no option to change this setting when editing the page — unless you realize that you need to add link=”file” to the shortcode in Text Mode. I only discovered this by creating a new gallery and examining the shortcode!
But this only opens a standalone image — it doesn’t show a page withe the header and the full-size image — which happened with previous versions of WordPress.
This seems to be a bug with WordPress 4.6.1 that needs to be fixed.
