Original images linked when using [gallery] instead of edited images.

Reported by: materdaddy Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 2.9.1
Component: Media Keywords:
Focuses: multisite Cc:


When using the built-in [gallery] in WPMU, any images you've edited using the built-in "media" editing will have anchors that point to the original image rather than the edited image.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Upload images to a post.
  • Rotate an image and save.
  • Use [gallery link="file"] in your post.

Expected Behavior:

Gallery shown in your post with the edited images, clicking one should show the full sized edited file.

Actual Behavior:

Gallery is shown in your post with the edited images, however clicking one results in a link to the original (non-rotated) images.


wp-includes/post.php - function wp_get_attachment_url()

There is a section of code commented out for MU that says it breaks the image upload path for MU. This is untrue: The "elseif" check on wp-content/uploads will evaluate false, then the "else" will just concatenate the upload's baseurl to the filename resulting in a correct URL if it weren't commented out.

Because that section of code is commented out, the "$url" variable is still empty after that if block, and the guid is used instead, which apparently is the unaltered original image.

  • Summary changed from WPMU: Original images linked when using [gallery] instead of edited images. to Original images linked when using [gallery] instead of edited images.

I updated the summary, but I also think this one is fixed. On my test install [gallery] now shows the cropped image.

If someone can provide steps to reproduce, please re-open.
