    Very cool idea, not only cleaning up the gallery, but also preparing the links for Lightbox & friends. Smart thinking.

    And surprising that given the concern for standards the gallery code isn’t XHTML strict. Weird.

    plus, glad you like Theseus (and thankful it didn’t break in your test)! And Peaceful Rush is still one of the nicer WordPress themes.

    For those following along at home, the XHTML for the gallery should be completely valid for the next release. It just slipped through our testing the first time around.

    Hi Justin,

    Thanx for your release, I downloaded it and tested it in my localhost, and everything looks great. I’m going to upload it on to my blog soon.

    I’m using “Options” theme in my local test server and it’s compatible, man. I’m very happy with this…

    Thank you anyway

    I’m not gonna use the gallery feature yet, but I was taken slightly aback by the fact that the shortcode outputs invalid XHTML. It’ll probably be fixed in WordPress 2.5.1 or something, but then again, as you said your plugin does have some other nifty features 🙂

    Quick question..say the gallery feature ends up with valid code soon and for simplicity’s sake I want to go back to using it when that happens… Will disabling the plugin later make it necessary to re-create existing galleries, or will they work with the standard gallery feature post-plugin?

    Thanks for the hard work and valid code.

    Excellent work Justin, as always.
    I modified one thing: in order to limit each gallery to show only the specific pics uploaded for that post I changed the $a_rel to ‘lightbox[gallery-‘ . $post->ID . ‘]’. Otherwise Slimbox shows all uploaded gallery pics in every post that uses the gallery.

    I took your plugin as a base for mine. I added greybox, thickbox (the one standard in wp) and highslide support. And I use the exif info that wp 2.5 now stores in the metadata to ad to the boxes. Als I extract gps info and you can view the location of the pictures taken in a box to.

    You can see it live here: http://kruyt.org

    Hi Justin,

    What I mean with thickbox, is I auto load it in the plugin. no need to embed in my theme. And thickbox is already by default in WP2.5

    code for using the tb in wp:

    add_action('wp_head', 'thickbox_css');
    function thickbox_css() {
        $thickbox_csspath = get_bloginfo('wpurl')."/wp-includes/js/thickbox/thickbox.css";
        $thickboxscript = "\n";

    And here some code I use to put the exif info that wp 2.5 now reads from files in the title, so the ‘boxes’ can use it to. To display exif.

    // Get EXIF from WP and set in title
    $metadata = wp_get_attachment_metadata($id);
    $image_meta = $metadata[image_meta];
    //print_r ($metadata);
    if($image_meta[camera]) $title = ''.$image_meta[camera].' ';
    if($image_meta[focal_length]) $title .= '@ '.$image_meta[focal_length].' mm ';
    if($image_meta[shutter_speed]) $title .= '- ¹/'.(1/($image_meta[shutter_speed])).' sec';
    if($image_meta[aperture]) $title .= ', ƒ/'.$image_meta[aperture].'';
    if($image_meta[iso]) $title .= ', ISO '.$image_meta[iso].'';
    if($image_meta[created_timestamp]) $title .= ' on '.date('j F, Y',$image_meta[created_timestamp]).'';

    Thanks so much for the plugin. I was so anxious about the Gallery feature in WP 2.5 however I was shocked when I saw the inline css in the page and it was breaking. I wondered what had happened because ever since I started developing using css, i hadn’t come across css code in the middle of a page.

    Anyway, it was great to hear from Matt that it was just an oversight but it will be out very soon with the next release. That will be so fantastic.

    Otherwise, I really like the gallery feature and most of the other features in WP 2.5.

  25. Andrew Mee

    Great work – the first plugin I’ve found which deals with the wp2.5 gallery the way I wanted to (by turfing it out entirely, and doing it better!) Seriously, excellent work!

    The only addition I made to this was adding the lines;

    $myCaption = ($attachment->post_excerpt == "") ? $attachment->post_content: $attachment->post_excerpt;
    if ($myCaption == ""){ $myCaption = $attachment->post_title; }

    That way it looks for the caption in first the caption, then the description field, and if it can’t find it in either, it uses the title. Not appropriate for everyone I’m sure, but for my usage I always want a caption and Picasa captions come out in description, not caption annoyingly enough.

    It seems that this plugin uses “dl” lists (definition lists) with “dt” elements (“definition term”), just like the default WP gallery code.

    I’ve read lots of criticism of the galler code, but as yet I haven’t seen anyone question the element choice. In what way is a gallery of images a definition list? In what way is an image in such a galler a definition term? And where are the definitions (the “dd” elements)?

    If were going for valid XHTML, shouldn’t we try to use elements according to their definitions too? Validators don’t catch such errros, but they are just as important as validation errors, perhaps even more important.

    “dl” lists are often (mis)used to get the typical layout that such lists usually get in browsers, but as far as I can tell, that’s not the reason for the choice of “dl” here. The CSS seems to override the typical “dl” presentation completely. So I’m really baffled? Why “dl”?? I must be missing something…

    This is an awesome plugin. Thank you very much.

    Sorry to hijack this thread but…:
    @Dennis – I just checked your blog. I really like what you did with your lightbox images. I see the code you posted for the EXIF information. Which files do you insert that into? Thanks!

  35. Bertilo Wennergren
    Bertilo Wennergren Published |


    If you don’t like the element choice, you can always change it with your gallery shortcode.

    Yes, but 99.99% of all users won’t. And then we’ll have heaps of “dl” elements that are not definition lists at all. There goes our semantic web… The default choice should be a good one.

    Granted, we should probably use different elements, but what should those elements be? I don’t see any clearly logical elements for displaying galleries..

    If there is no element in XHTML with a meaning that fits, then we should use “div” and “span”. That’s what they are there for. XHTML is not a particularily rich markup language. But it doesn’t get any better if we misuse the XHTML elements that do have a clear meaning.

    Maybe the use of a definition list is perfect for this situation. The gallery (dl) has images (dt) and captions (dd). A list with terms and descriptions. Of course, this is using the word “term” a little looser than usual, but do terms have to be text? If we answer yes, then the markup is most definitely wrong. If we say no, then maybe it’s a good solution.

    I think a “dt” needs to be a term. That might be a symbol, and an image could be a symbol. In any case the corresponding “dd” element should be a definition of that term/symbol. A caption could perhaps be a definition of its image, sometimes, but not very often. I doubt very much that many actual galleries are of that kind. And a gallery without captions? Could that in any conceivable way be seen as a definition list? A definition list without definitions? I really don’t think that makes any sense.

    In my opinion the default should be changed to “div” instead of “dl”.

    Justin Tadlock wrote:

    The word “definition” isn’t always accurate, even when talking about a definition list. W3 (article above) calls this both a definition and a “description.” Now, an image caption may not always be a definition, but it should always be a description. Otherwise, it’s not a caption at all. Of course, I’m being a bit picky with words.

    Maybe not too picky. That could be a way to justify the use of “dl” in the gallery code. But I’m a bit afraid that we’re getting close to redefining “dl”, “dt” and “dd” as “list (dl) of items (dt) with related text(s) (dd)”. That seems a bit too “unsemantic” too me, but I could be wrong.

    Would it then be OK to use “dl” with a single element as a general way of marking up images with captions? It’s not illogical for a list to have just one element, I guess… Actually I’ve long felt that XHTML lacks a good way to add a caption to an image. Could “dl”, “dd” and “dt” be it?

    But then again: If there are no captions (i.e. no descriptions), just a bunch of images (I think that will very often be the case), then it’s hard to justify the use of “dl”. But the gallery code uses “dl” for such galleries too…

    Have you considered adding a “rows” property? I see this as another shortcoming of the Wordpress code. Here’s what I added to make it work (Starting at around line 120):

    	$image_counter = 0;
    	$rows = intval($attr['rows']);
    	$max_images = 1000000;
    	if ($rows != "") {

    Regarding the metadata code provided by Dennis, I successfully added the snippet to the source of the plugin.

    I have it starting on line 128, directly following the line resembling if($title == '') $title = $attachment->post_title;. If you copy the code Dennis provided, you will need to clean it up a bit, due to WP creating curly quotes and the like.

    You can see the end result in this post on my site. It’s used in the bunch of images at the bottom. Just click the images to view the thickbox, the meta information is shown there.

    The “rows” property can be useful if you’re giving a preview of the gallery – maybe you give the user 6 images (2 rows of three columns) and a link to the full gallery, which may have 100 images – something that would take up too much space on the page where you’re previewing it.

    Of course, it’s not a useful property for the full gallery, since the code cuts the gallery short.

    Hello Justin,

    thanks for the gallery plugin. I installed in my test site in the dir wordpress and it works fine. But I have a small doubbt. When I see the gallery post block in the main page, the first picture appears. and if i click the post it takes to the post page. Now if press a single image it goes to the full image rather than the intermdiate size where the original gallery plugin allowed users to post their comment. that provison is absent. is this intentional designed that way.
    but if click the gallery widget, it takes to the post and from their one is able to click the individual image and make comment.
    i just thought i should check up whether this is intended to be this way.

    The idea of this plug-in is fantastic. But I have one caveat though…

    Whilst testing it, I had a user on the phone which expressed how my website became slow all of a sudden. I did noticed the site was quite slow, particularly on pages where gravatars where being displayed. As soon as I turned the plug-in off there was a great performance improvement.

    I think this is down for the following reasons:

    1. My first test was with thickbox
    2. This is a presumption: I assume that since Justin had to replace the buil-tin gallery shortcode with his own *fixed* copy, this would slow things up considerably.
    3. I might need some optimisation in my site (cache, ‘compressed’ code and so on.

    I was wondering if since WP 2.6 authors claimed that the gallery xhtml issues would be fixed in this version, if the new versions of this plug-in would have a smaller footprint (as I reckon it would have less code to fix).

    thanks for your plugin. i made a small enhancemant that would be nice if you include it into the next version. it adds the image description you set in wordpress to the lightbox image. it’s really simple, i just modified the following code on line 140:

    // the image description for the lightbox
    		$description = $attachment->post_content;
    	// If using Lightbox, set the link to the img URL
    	// Else, set the link to the attachment URL
    		if($a_rel == true) $link = $a_img;
    		elseif($a_class == true) $link = $a_img;
    		else $link = $att_page;
    		$output .= "\t";

    i only tested it with lightview but i suppose the syntax is the same for any other lightbox.

  85. Iwan
    Iwan Published |

    hmm strange,

    the blog just stripped away some code. i will try to explain the changing. first read the desciption:

    // the image description for the lightbox
    $description = $attachment->post_content;

    then add the description to the lightbox. in lightview you can seperate title and description by adding a “::” to the title attribute of the link tag.


    i hope this is readable in the blog.

Here’s the exact error I receive: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/wargamin/public_html/wp-content/plugins/cleaner-gallery/cleaner-gallery.php on line 33

    I uncommented this code:
    // Auto load Thickbox (included with WP 2.5)?
    // wp_enqueue_script('thickbox');
    // add_action('wp_head', 'thickbox_css');

    So it now looks like:
    Auto load Thickbox (included with WP 2.5)?
    add_action('wp_head', 'thickbox_css');

    Any ideas? I can't use Lightbox because it doesn't work with my theme (a gigantic black area covers the top 1/4 of the page when I install and enable Lightbox to be auto-enabled) so I figure auto-loading Thickbox, which comes included with WP 2.5+, should work on my WP 2.6+ blog.

    Thank you very much for this! I’ve been hacking the hell out of media.php since the get go, I couldn’t find the plugs to make my own plugin, but this gave me the right direction:). I’m customizing it to use Fancy Zoom, though I’m starting to lean to the cleaner jquery version Fancy Box, and turning the (X)HTML into a much simpler, cleaner version I use:

    I’ve never understood why everything is such a hefty class/ID element, when you can just ID the containing tag (whether that’s a dl like in my case or your standard list), and then drill down your css from there, #mygallery dt, #mygallery li, etc. Regardless, this will let me get out of the excessive code hell. If you’d like the code when I’m done, I’m happy to send it your way:)

    I added support for excluding specific images from the gallery, like so: [gallery exclude="1,2,3,4"]

    Fetch my updated version here. (changes made @ lines 125-129)

    Note: there’s no way (that I know) to actually get the attachment id in the WP admin. It is quite straightforward (but cumbersome) though: they’re numbered from the post ID and up. If post ID = 160, the first attachment (bottom-most on the upload page by default) will be 161 and so on.

    hello, I was just curios about another pretty similar plugin: http://www.jarinteractive.com/weblog/2008/07/photojar/ do these 2 plugins do exactly the same? and if not could they be compatible?

    thx. the other one states:

    * Dynamically resizes thumbnails – changes to image sizes apply retroactively
    * Allows custom image sizes (beyond “thumbnail” and “medium”)
    * Caches resized images
    * Integrates with LightBox, ThickBox, LightView, and many more javascript image viewers
    * Provides an [image] shortcode
    * Can change the default number of columns in a gallery

    So it seems very similar except for cleaning up the code 🙂 And it has a nice gui, just for your info… maybe you can incorporate some of those features as well, just a little inspiration.

    Oh and thanks for the nice plugin 🙂

    I just found a reliable way to get the ID of an attachment (for use in the exclude-list): press the ‘Delete’-button of the attachment and then hover over the “Continue”-link – your browser status bar will display an URL with the ID in. 🙂

    I find myself never using the ‘image.php’ to view gallery images – relying instead on lightbox display and never leaving the post to view an image.

    If you’re like me you might want to display the image description (instead of the title) in the lightbox-window.Note that it will fall back to using titles if no description is available.

    A picture says more than a thousand words. 🙂

    Dear Justin,

    I have a weird problem with your plugin and I suspect it has something to do with the theme i’m using (Cutline 1.1 on WordPress 2.7.1). When activating Cleaner Gallery, the gallery of a post isn’t displayed, although the respective HTML code is inserted into the post (for example: http://herr-poerner.de/2009/03/10/test/). When deactivating Cleaner Gallery, the gallery appears, but the WP standard gallery only.

    When using other themes, Cleaner Gallery works fine.

    Any ideas how to edit my theme’s files?

    Justin – My need for rows is similar to JazzPDX’s: I want to display a small number of images on a front page as a preview/link to larger gallery. If there were a way to specify the maximum number of images to display, that would work, too.

    Can you give me an example of the include/exclude argument you suggest?

    Justin – Thanks for the reply. And, yes, rows as you’ve described them wouldn’t be my solution.

    The include/exclude image arguments only seem to work with specific image ids. I’m writing this in to a page template where, for layout reasons, only want to display 4 images, 2×2. Which 4 and the order isn’t important.

    The numberposts argument of the get_children function is indeed that “max images” parameter that I was looking for.

    Not sure when v.06 is due but, in the short term, it’s easy enough to add this to the current version.

    Go to /plugins/cleaner-gallery/cleaner-gallery.php.

    Look for

    Add this line

    where 4 is the maximum number of images to be displayed. Remember to add the comma to the end of the line above.

    Hope this helps others.

    Hi Justin,

    Thank you so much for this plugin, it’s fantastic!!

    This might be off-topic, but you seemed like someone who might be able to help as my issue concerns the [gallery] short code. I would like to automatically insert id=”##” into the shortcode when my users insert a gallery using the Wordpress WYSIWYG editor. Do you know if there’s any way to do that?

    The reason I need it is because the Subscribe2 plugin I’m using doesn’t recognize which images are attached to a post if the ID isn’t inserted in the [gallery] shortcode. I’m trying to avoid making my users touch the HTML of any post.

    Hi Justin,

    The numberposts parameter is great but I’d like to suggest taking it one step further.

    Would it be possible to specify both how many images you want in your gallery (as it does now) and also how many thumbnails are displayed within your post?

    For example, you could have a gallery with 20 images that you want visitors to scroll through but only show the first 2 in your post. Showing all 20 thumbnails would just be overwhelming.

    Thanks for the hard work on this plugin.

    Hi Justin,

    Thanks for the reply.

    What numberposts does is limit the number of images shown both in the post and the gallery itself.

    What I’m suggesting (and it’s simply a suggestion, maybe a bad one) is to add a parameter to be able to limit how many images are shown in the post but still allow the gallery to display all images attached to that post. Does that make sense?

    For example, if you have 10 images you want to display via a lightbox gallery script but don’t want 10 thumbnails cluttering your post page, you are able to set the plugin to only show the first thumbnail as en entry point into the rest of your gallery.

    First let me thank you for a great plugin. When I upgraded from .61 to .7 it messed up the gallery display so that the images only show one per line and the spacing between lines is really large so you must scroll to even see the next thumbnail.

    I still can’t get the thickbox option to work in wordpress 2.8. it worked in 2.7.1. I’ve tried deactivating all my plugins, and custom css — to no avail. Something is preventing the thickbox effect from working. is anyone else having this problem in 2.8? I may have to switch to a different solution for my wordpress galleries. Except, there isn’t a plugin out there that makes galleries so slick without requiring the blog author to do anything differently than they’d do without this plugin. The process for uploading images doesn’t change with this plugin like it does with nextgen or others. I like that. So, I really want to get it working again. Can anyone help?

    I decided to try using a different supported lightbox-type script for the gallery. I downloaded and installed slimbox2, uploaded the javascript to my server, linked to it in the page , uploaded the css and images for slimbox2 and linked to the css in the page , selected “slimbox2” from the cleaner gallery plugin drop-down menu and saved settings. I then refreshed the page — and — the effect doesn’t work. I still get taken to the image at the full src path with no lightbox effect whatsoever. what gives!

    hopefully this will shed some light on this subject. I uploaded the example slimbox2 page to my server (http://skepticblog.org/example.html) and using the paths to the js and css on my server. I tested it and it works perfectly! So, why doesn’t the effect work on the blog page?

    problem solved! I was never successful at getting the Thickbox effect to work, but I was able to get the Slimbox2 effect to work because I could control where the slimbox2.js file appeared in my header (after the wp_head call which loads the jquery library). Turns out that jquery.js must be loaded BEFORE the slimbox2.js file, otherwise, slimbox2 doesn’t work.

    Hi there !

    I’ve been reading the (numerous ^^) comments, and you’ve asked several times how could a row option be useful. Well, I’m putting a gallery shortcode in my sidebar, in a widget.
    This widget’s gonna display the pictures of a certain page. And I don’t want it to be huge, otherwise it’s gonna make my layout look pretty strange.

    A row option could help me select the number of pictures I want to display. And I don’t want to choose (include or exclude) which pictures I want to display, because the purpose of the widget is to show the latest pictures, and I can’t change the pictures to include or exclude everytime I’m uploading a new picture..

    I haven’t tried your plugin nor JazzPDX code yet but I’m highly interested in that row property !

    Not a very useful comment I know, but keep on the good job ! 😉

    Thanks for this Justin,

    I find that everyone jumps right to using a plugin for Gallery management when there’s a robust gallery feature already included in the standard build. I managed to manipulate your code output a bit to remove the rows; allowing me to turn a WordPress Gallery into a cross fading JavaScript slideshow using the jQuery Cycle plugin. I hope the functionality of the Galleries within WordPress improves in the future to allow for better management (re-using images without the need to re-upload).

    I’ve recently included it in my 10 Perfect Plugins for Building a WordPress CMS blog post. Keep up the great work, and thanks!

    I am using fancybox and the fancybox-gallery-integration-plugin, so your plugin isn’t much usefull for me, but here are some things, which would me make using your plugin:
    I would like to change the style of the gallery, e.g. the border of the gallery and the border of the pictures. Also the distances between the pictures and what would be really great: A integration of the shadow plugin, so that every picture in the gallery would have a little shadow! 🙂

    Thanks so much for this plugin. The exclude parameter is something that’s been needed for a while, judging by all the WP Forum posts about it.
    One thing, the readme.html needs to be updated with the exclude shortcode usage. There’s no way of knowing about it except for your one post on this page.
    Any other shortcode unique to your plugin I should know about? Just asking.
    Thanks again.

    Wonderful Plugin! almost solved all my issues with the default WP gallery/
    Found a bug, though:

    If a person enters a class name in the “alternate script” box which contains within the string the letters ‘id’ (as in highslide), then Cleaner Gallery substitutes the ID number of the page itself for the letters ‘id’. In other words you end up with something like ‘highsl235e’ in the html.

    Makes it hard to integrate the Highslide library :).

    This didn’t work at first so I did a little debugging and there seems to be a conflict when using the 960.gs grid with this plugin. I disabled the 960 stylesheet and the gallery showed up fine. Anybody else experience this?

  249. John
    John Published |

    Figured it out. For those who have trouble using the 960.gs grid w/ this plugin, add these styles…

    .gallery .gallery-row { clear:both;display:block;height:auto;overflow:hidden;visibility:visible;width:auto; }

      Had an issue, disabled the plug-in and knew something was up. Went back to this page, found your insight on the 960.gs.grid issue and now this plug-in is back up and running. Simply pleased to have found a solution.

    Hey. I have a problem with the plugin.

    When i users using IE clicks on a gallery image before the gallery is loaded, they get to a single attachement page (and the gallery naturally doesnt load)…

    Is there anyway to avoid this, and instead let the gallery load after the picture is clicked?

    Best regards Axel.

    Justin, I need to get integration with Highslide. Basically just set the gallery images to automatically (or optionally) have both ‘class’ and ‘rel’ set to ”highslide’.

    Any way to do this?

  256. Razvan Neagu
    Razvan Neagu Published |

    Justin – looks like you fixed the “id” issue that supposedly as a string part of “highslide” was creating a problem that someone else reported in this thread. From looking at your code I figured out how to tweak admin.php and gallery.php to add highslide from the admin panel. Set it to just add the rel=highslide and class=highslide, and it worked.

    Sweetness! Thanks for your plugin.

    Hi there,

    I just tried to download the plugin and got a 404 error. Maybe you’re updating?

    I’m wondering if there is a way to control how Wp ‘crops’ or places an image that can be viewed in full by clicking. Wp seems to show the middle of the reduced image, and I would prefer to show the top of the image. (If that makes sense.)

    By the way, I’m using a Template. However, I believe Wp is controlling the size & placement of the images.

    I’m not sure if I can control this with CSS or it requires some PHP tweaking.

    Hope to install your plugin!

    i´m using cleaner gallery on a html5 website and stumbled over the fact that rel=”lightbox” doesn t validate html5.

    Is there any chance for an update allowing to choose an html5-valid way of implementing lightbox like ‘class=”lightbox”‘ or using the ‘data-‘- attribute?

    It’s hard to believe that this many years later, 3.31 still has the inline styling and it doesn’t look like it is getting fixed for 3.4. IMO, WordPress should never produce styles. That is what themes do.

    Hi, I have a very important question:

    You have on one picture for example:
    Sizes: 150 × 150 / 300 × 168 / 800 × 450

    When I install the plugin, I have only one size per picture.
    So how can I change this?!

I have all the link in the gallery. They just don’t send to the link.
