Comments on: Shiba Gallery 3.5 Adventures in WordPress Thu, 01 Oct 2015 04:59:03 +0000 hourly 1 By: ShibaShake Sat, 02 Mar 2013 02:22:44 +0000 Ok, I checked out one of your gallery pages.
– It looks like you are using an older version of the plugin. Please refer to the main plugin page for updates and most recent versions. Current version should be 4.0+.
– It looks like you are using multiple different gallery plugins. Therefore, there will be a high likelihood of conflict.

In general, I find that it is best to test plugins and WP updates out on a test site first before deploying.

By: Justin Fri, 01 Mar 2013 15:30:23 +0000 I was showing someone my site, and to my dismay, the grid style galleries that I set up seems to have broken. I used Shiba on all of my gallery pages, and an image slider for the portfolio. Has Shiba been confirmed to NOT be compatible with wordpress 3.5.1 or should I try and roll back to 3.5?

By: ShibaShake Wed, 14 Nov 2012 07:05:18 +0000 Hello Brian,

The plugin uses gallery shortcodes similar to what is used in WP native.

It just expands the shortcode attributes that can be used. Here are the expanded attributes-

By: Brian Wed, 14 Nov 2012 05:38:49 +0000 I’ve read many great reviews about Shiba gallery and the versatility and ease of use it provides, but have yet to experience any of this. I am not new to web design by any means, I would call my skill level ‘intermediate.’ However, I have only recently started using WP and so there are many simple structures about the tools available that I have yet to explore or understand fully.

The problem I’m having though, is I can’t find any actual instructions on setting up a gallery with Shiba, and the only reference I can find for it throughout my WP dashboard is within the ‘media’ section under the Shiba gallery area. But, in this area the only relevant options I see is an ability to set the default image, specify the type of gallery I wish to create, and a few default options.

Nowhere, though, am I finding an actual ability to create a gallery through this plugin or references to control a gallery I have created. Basically, I’m stuck on step 2, and can’t find a good source of information on how to proceed. I imagine I could sift through the .js code and .php code and figure all of this out, but that sort of seems like it would eliminate the purpose of using the plugin. please help.

Glad you like my horse render. Will do some more with the Mill Horse, if I have some time.

I will take a look at But I think, I will wait for your release. I really love your style and your ideas. Maybe sometimes I understand how I can use the gallerys for my posts. It’s a little bit difficult for me to understand all your explanations in english. o.O.

But that’s not your fault. You do a great job. Thanks for support and your great theme! :-)

Re: Images in new window
1. Look in shiba-gallery-helper.php.
2. Search for the “get_attachment_link” function.
3. Change all instances of target=”_top” to target=”_blank” within the function.

Re: Genesis Skins –
Genesis Skins is a new child theme I created on top of the Genesis Framework from StudioPress. You can check out the Genesis framework at I plan to release my child theme at some point, but I still have a bunch of things I have to work through with it and bugs to fix. I just did many many updates on my site so I will be busy with that for a while. Might be some time before I release Genesis Skins. 😀

Definitely take a look at the studiopress site. They have many cool looking child themes there.

Re: Number of Columns –
The Genesis Framework has several templates with 1, 2, or 3 columns. Their site has some nice examples of the various templates. So yes, that option is still available but through the template system.

your site and your wordpress theme is amazing. I love it!
I’m using WordPress since a few days and your tutorials helped me a lot to create my site like I want. Now I want to use your gallery plugin with the noobslide_galleria. It works well, but I have a problem with the links to my images. I want that the images open in a new window, when you click on the link below. How can I handle this? Thanks.

By: ShibaShake Sat, 29 Sep 2012 00:25:06 +0000 You can change the CSS for the galleria-info container in the galleria.classic.css file. For example replace top:15px; with bottom:60px;
