Fancy Image links and captions do not work in WordPress 4.0.1

open (29 posts) (15 voices)

  1. The links and captions stopped working on fancy images in Awake after updating to WordPress 4.0.1

    I can't provide a link as I had to remove all fancy images for the time being as it was a mess.

    We need a fix asap please

    Hey guys,

    I'll flag this for our devs to take a look but in the meantime I would consider just inserting the image into your post with the add media button. You can set the caption directly to the image in the media library and it has the same styling as our fancy_images shortcode.

    You can also add a rel = "lightbox" to the link which will open it up in prettyPhoto and any other lightbox plugin you want to use.

    Thanks Elliott, but I have a website full of images, like 100s. Would it be better just to go back to an earlier version of WordPress? Do you have a magic bit of CSS I could slot in to solve the problem.

    I have the same exact problem.
    The website I am working on is based 70% on this feature, and I cannot possibly revert to inserting images from media in every place I used the [fancy_image] shortcode. I am using Dejavu and it's not working. Looks like this upgrade's a major problem for all those themes-plugins that weren't built strictly abiding to Wordpress Shortcode API so it's either downgrade to WP 4.0 or a theme upgrade release like... very soon. Do you have any idea when can we epect a fix?

    Would be nice to know whether this fix will take hours, days, or weeks. I have several not so happy clients right now...

    I visited this forum two or three times a day to see if there is any fix..... I might have to hardcode the page....

    Any fix for this? I ended up having to manually recode my home page to framed images with manual a href links.

    For those looking for a workaround, the framed images look identical to the fancy images with borders, but without the fade/hover effect. This enabled me to use the same images as before with no design changes, but it was time consuming to edit the code. Not a fix for a site full of images.

    I rolled my sites back and stopped the auto updates until this gets sorted.

    Any news with this topic? Has anyone tried to upgrade to WP 4.1 to see if this problem still exists? Not a very efficient support here, I must say.

  21. My site is 4.1 and fancy images are working fine. I also tried http://falunart.org/en/ and the images were linking to pages perfectly fine.

    Can anyone share a link to their site that is still currently experiencing the problem?

    This site is still working 4.0.1 with the latest Awake version and there is a problem with the fancy images. After the problem, I didn't dare to upgrade to 4.1, is it supposed to fix the issue? http://www.noasmusic.com/

    You can see the fancy images problem on this page: http://www.noasmusic.com/noa-and-friends/

    Any updates on this? My fancy images with links that are placed inside of a widget work fine, but fancy images with links on the Home Page section do not work...

    I'm running Wordpress 4.1 fyi.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Make sure your theme is up to date:
    http://mysitemyway.com/theme-updates-for-04-18-14/

    And then replace the following files on your server with the ones in the zip file below:

    lib/classes/raw-shortcode.php
    lib/shortcodes/18-images.php

    Let us know if this resolves the fancy image shortcode issue.

    Hi,
    I was just working on a new site and came across the problem with fancy images. I haven't seen any responses yet to your solution above, but for the record, replacing raw-shortcode.php and 18-images.php has worked for me. Looks great. Thank you.

    Didn't work for me. I'm using Construct 1.8. Deactivated all plugins --> no luck.
    Any other suggestion, please? It's pretty urgent.

    Thanks!
