I am responding to a topic raised in my plugin’s support forum:
As I understand it, my user wants to use MLA to select one or more attachments and then display the results with your plugin. MLA includes “Support for other gallery-generating shortcodes”. Here is an excerpt from MLA Documentation:
[mla_gallery]shortcode can be used in combination with other gallery-generating shortcodes to give you the data selection power of
[mla_gallery]and the formatting/display power of popular alternatives such as the WordPress.com Jetpack Carousel and Tiled Galleries modules. Any shortcode that accepts “ids=” or a similar parameter listing the attachment ID values for the gallery can be used. Two parameters implement this feature:
- mla_alt_shortcode the name of the shortcode to be called for gallery format and display
- mla_alt_ids_name (optional, default “ids”) the name of the parameter used to pass a list of attachment ID values to the alternate shortcode
For example, if you want to select images using the MLA Att. Category taxonomy but want to display a “Tiled Mosaic” gallery, you can code:
[mla_gallery attachment_category=vegetable tax_operator="NOT IN" mla_alt_shortcode=gallery type="rectangular" mla_alt_ids_name=include]
This example selects all the images that are “NOT IN” the Att. Category “vegetable”. The selected images are passed to the
[gallery]shortcode in an “include” parameter, along with the “type=rectangular” parameter. The result is as if you had coded:
[gallery include="1,2,3" type="rectangular"]
I do not see any to do something like this with WP Masonry Layout, and I do not see any filters/actions/hooks in the code that would work, either. Can you tell me if this is possible or if you would consider working on a solution to provide it?
Thank you for a great plugin and for your help.February 24, 2015 at 5:15 pm #4104Masonry GuyKeymaster
Really sorry for your requirement here. Our plugin doesn’t work with Galleries. It is just for post, post type and pages.
