Comments on: WordPress Media Library Plugin Adventures in WordPress Tue, 14 Apr 2015 12:43:21 +0000 hourly 1 By: Jon Thu, 05 Mar 2015 17:04:47 +0000 Hi! I am trying to move from one theme to another. Right now I am using Shiba and would like to carry over my galleries based on tags to the new theme which uses another gallery plugin – WP Simple Gallery.

Do you know of a way to have that other plugin see which images are in the Shiba Galleries? I am trying to edit the code but cannot find a solution yet.

The code I believe I should edit is this:

private function gallery() {
global $post;
$gallery = get_post_meta($post->ID, ‘wpsimplegallery_gallery’, true);
$gallery = (is_string($gallery)) ? @unserialize($gallery) : $gallery;
$html = ”;

if (is_array($gallery) && count($gallery) > 0) {
$html = ”;
foreach ($gallery as $thumbid) {
$html .= $this->thumb($thumbid, $post->ID);
$html .= ”;

return $html;

Would appreciate any help / info, but definitely understand since it isn’t your plugin.

Let me know if this solves the issue or not. Thanks!

By: Martin Thu, 05 Feb 2015 13:15:58 +0000 hi! I’m having troubles with the Media Library for a few days. I have this error when I try to add new images to my gallery: Fatal error: Call to protected method WP_List_Table::get_column_info() from context ‘Shiba_Media_Library_Add’ in /path_to_plugins/shiba-media-library/shiba-mlib-add.php on line 185

The error is always visible when you are editing or creating a new slide at the bottom of the page. I’m trying to disable other plugins to test but it doesn’t work.

I had other problem like a month ago, but was solved re-installing the plugin. I tried it but doesn’t work.

I’m using WordPress 4.1 and Shiba Media Library 3.8.2. The other plugins are Jetpack 3.3, Related Posts by Zemanta 1.11.1, SNAP 3.4.7 and WordPress SEO 1.7.1.

By: Amir Wed, 21 Jan 2015 08:39:52 +0000 Hello Shibashake
I have a question, I will appreciate if you answer me. Few years ago I worked with blogspot. In there we could connect blogger to our picasa albums. So in editor panel when I wanted to put a image in article, It showed me albums of pictures in picasa.

It was so nice because images from a specific article was in related album name in picasa.

But wordpress does not have this feature, Its a mess, its a disaster. I want to see them in folders (not a gallery). Is this what your plugin do?

Thanks for your time

I just tested it on my site and it seems to be working fine.

By: Wilco Sat, 06 Dec 2014 10:35:03 +0000 Sorry, but it is not clear to me how the tag search works. I added tags to some images, but when I select “tag” from the drop down menu, add a search term in the text field and click the “search media” button, I see all images. What goes wrong here?

There is also a “filter” button next to the text field, but that doesn’t work either. Any help is much appreciated.

If you want to avoid uninstalling the plugin, you can ftp the new files over to your server. This is what I do for my live sites. I also test everything out on a mirror site first before updating my main sites.

This plugin is not in the official WP directory, which is why you don’t get the usual update messages.

By: Abby Tue, 02 Dec 2014 11:50:52 +0000 Hi,
I’m using Jupiter theme (themeforest) for my magazine and since I couldn’t create any new gallery for a few day I came here to understand why.
I’ve now realized that I’ve been using a rather old version of the pluing (3.6!) so that might be the issue.
the point is that I’ve never had an “Update Plugin” message for shiba so now, If I want the latest version I need to uninstall and re-install it (weird, never happend w/ any other plugin). My question is: will I lose the existing galleries and pictures in doing so?
is there anything else I can do to avoid uninstalling the plugin?
thanks lot.

By: ShibaShake Sat, 29 Nov 2014 05:22:16 +0000 I just tested this on my test site and it works fine. Try testing this on a default theme with other plugins turned off. I tested it on TwentyTen and it works fine with it under WP 4.0.1.
