In this final part of the User Submitted ImageGallery tutorial series, we will look at adding just a couple more features to our gallery system. We are going to add the ability to view all images by a particular user. This will be done by clicking on the name of the author when viewing a single image's details. When the user's name is clicked, the regular gallery layout will be displayed, but it will only show images by the specified user. This will allow our gallery to act as a sort of "portfolio".

    Hello i just became a premium member today and downloaded the plugin but it does not look the same way it puts one pic and paginates the rest no columns or anything. Help!!

    • Pippin

      Can you show me an example?

  2. Helmi Aditya

    Thanks for the plugin, looks promising for my needs.

    Anyway, I just try it on fresh install, testing few images and it works fine. But when I click the user portfolio link, it goes 404.

    Any ideas? What did I miss?

    • Pippin

      The user portfolio view isn’t built into the plugin out of the box, you need to build that into your theme, as is described in this part of the tutorial series.

    • Helmi Aditya

      Really sorry, as I’m having a hard time digesting the tutorial. I can do some templating, but not quite understanding plugin yet.

      Does this mean I have to code custom author.php template and put some functions in it?

    • Pippin

      No, you won’t modify author.php. You will create a page that has the gallery short code on it and that page will display the author-specific images based on the ?user=X query argument.

      Have you gone through each part of the tutorial series? The plugin is meant to be a starting point, not one that is ready for plug-and-play. Going through each part of the series will help show how it works.

    • Helmi Aditya

      I did make a new page and put the gallery shortcode on it. It works fine, however, everytime I click the uploader link on individual image view, it goes 404.

    • Pippin

      What’s the URL it goes to?

  3. Helmi Aditya

    ?user=1 as you pointed in the tutorial. I’m using twentyfourteen theme.

    • Pippin

      Sorry, your last comment got flagged as spam so I missed it. Are you still needing help with this?

    • Helmi Aditya

      Oh, I see. Yes, please.

    • Milena

      Helmi, hi. I have the same problem. Have you had any success solving this?

    • Helmi Aditya

      Ah, sorry Milena. I wish I had the brain to sort it out myself. I was hoping Pippin would take a look, but I guess he’s busy.

    • Milena

      Helmi Aditya – I have figured out the issue with the author link.(!) You need to change the main gallery page to “gallery” and now the link works:) (I temporarily named it “user image gallery” before, so gallery/?user=1 led to a 404 page.)

    Hi Pippin,

    I’ve written this question a couple of times but could not post it for some reason.

    Thanks for the plugin, I’ve downloaded and installed it on my site and everything works pretty cool. I am having the same kind of issue as the previous commenter- when I press on the user name I am getting the error page. What can it be?

    Thank you for the tutorial and the plugin.

  5. Milena

    Hello Pippin, did you get a chance to check the code?

    I cannot use this plugin if there is a bug like that, and I spent all this time (and money) on it. Can you please help me out?

    I am not the only one with this issue, as I said. There are ther people who registered to the site and did this tutorial who are waiting for a solution ot at least an advice – what to do.
