Hi. I’ve found out one more todo: after you filter a grid containing multiple galleries, when clicking to see a large image preview, the images from all galleries are present on the bottom.

Example: You add a advanced grid style, select post type attachment and add a gallery. You give it the term A. You repeat this two more times, giving the terms B and C. You sort by random. Everything shows up fine, filtering works etc. You filter by A, only the A images show up. You click one image to see a larger version of it, it pops up, but in the slider underneath it you can see all the images, not only A.

Hope you can help with this :)

Thanks for understanding. Nothing is about trouble, we will always like to make it better, just need some more talk see if there is a different opinion. :)

We will have another update for it in these days, noworries about it.

Hi, just to tell you that we have it fixed. You can check the demo to see how it works.
And this v1.5.2 update will be soon available for download once it is approved by the review team.

Hi guys,

Grid thumbnails dont seem to be clickable on mobile device.

Happy to provide link in private.


Thanks for the feedback, I just tested our demo site, it works, can you send me a link through my ID?

Hi! Is there an option to maintain hover/overlay effects, but disallow a click through to the hyperlink related to a post? We’re trying to build a simple portfolio, but without click-throughs.


No, this plugin is built to list posts. But you may like to use image gallery(attachment). This post type list any of your Image Media items. Check demos page here:

Hi There

can i input video in to portfolio? something like vimeo


HI PalaBari,
Nice to see you again, Video media is not working with attachment post type now, but this is a great idea and I will think about it for the later update.
I will update here if we have made it.

Hi Could you please tell me how the Sort by Custom Order works? I have multiple image galleries and I am trying to sort the images by name NATURALLY, but I’m having a problem with that. Please help! :(

Alright, haha
So you want “im 1, im 2, im 10, im 20, im 22.”
Not “im 1, im 10, im 2, im 20, im 22”

But I am sorry I couldn;t finished it in the comming 24H.
Could you please also send me your link that shows the inconvenience, so I can pass it to my partner see if a better way doing this? by PM me or replying here.

I forgot to mention I am a frontend developer and project leader, the backend PHP part is by my friend, we work out all WP developing together. That’s why I couldn’t finish it by myself, and it’s during holiday in my country:)

Just update this comment for other users, “Naturally” has been added in the latest updated.

HI, this is urgent. I just buy this and Im trying to activate the plug in but it appears this “Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.”


Sorry I missed this comment.
This plugin only works with Layers WP and You will need to turn your theme to “Layers WP”.

Hi, I cant use the plug in. I have a Php of 5.3 and I saw in the forum that I need a php of 5.6, my server cant use a php of 5.6 so can I use a lower version of your plugin that supports php5.3?? thanks…

I’ve been trying a lot to solve this problem because this plugin is half of my page… Thanks!!!!!

In your downloaded file, there is an older version which will work with older Layers WP.
Personally, I’d suggest you use a popular hosting service, it will always support newest PHP version and MySQL, and is more stable.

I download version 1.1 and it shows the same error, what is the version I have to put in order to work with php 5.3.28?? thanksss

1.1 will only work with older Layers WP, if you use php5.3, it means you have to go with older Layers WP too.

Hi, do you know how can I get older version of layers wp??

Yes, you can get older versions here:

Something has to mention, by going this way you may also need older version plugins that are built by Layers WP team, or older WP.
I still suggest move to a featured hosting.


I was wondering if I could remove the ‘All’ filter and choose the default starting filter instead for my masonry grid of images?


Please let me understand you well, what you meant by “default starting filter”?

By default, the plugin adds in an ‘All’ filter and it shows all images in the grid. What I would like is to remove the ‘All’ button/label (which I have found in the masonry-filters.php file) and then have category ‘A’ be active and only show those images when it first loads instead of all the images. The reason being is to save on page load times and the size of the initial grid.

I don’t think this way works fine since the masonry plugin is based on JS not HTML, All the listing grid items are hide/show by JS. However, the behavior is different from the masonry plugin. If you like to do something make it work, you may like to visit the github here:


Could you please check and update for layers 2.0?

i found problem widget do not have function for open/close to show cetagories

It seems it’s not issued by Layer WP, I see only 1 trouble when using “Portrait Grid”. I will try an updating this weekend. If you found more about it, please feel free to tell me what problems you met.

Sorry for the late. There was a CSS issue when using Hover Effect 3, I have it updated on the demo site. A new upgrade version1.5.4.1 will be soon available for download.
By the way, it seems it’s not issued by LayersWP2.0 if you think still something wrong. Please let me know details.

Hi i found The issue is under “Display” it seem there is double “Show “Read More” Buttons” and show/hide catagorie disappear

Hi, I am trying to use mansory style showing latest posts’ featured image and its excerpts, but it is not working, nothing shows up. It seems to be bugged… I am in a localhost wordpress site.

Yes, we found this issue when using the latest Firefox, and we will have a fix later. This issue only happens when using Firefox, if you are not in the same situation, please tell me more detail.

latest version is compatible with PHP 7 ?

Yes, it is.

Hi could you please help me check why css doesn’t load?

Please deactivate other plugins and see what happen. AGS plugin should work like your previous projects.

Hi There, I am using Advance Grid Style with the ceen template, but it does not seem to work on Hover effect style types.. tried to disable all the plug ins, reinstall the plug-ins all with no luck.. any Ideas what I can do to fix it?

any suggestions would be great. Thanks

HI, it should work if you deactivate other plugins, or please create an all new WordPress for a pure test.

Deactivated and removed all plugins… no luck.. will try on a clean WP site and see. Thanks

Thanks, tell me the result. Please understand we don’t debug other issues since AGS is fully supported to LayersWP theme and follow it’s codex.

hi there, Created a blank WP only installed layers 2, layers 2 pro, and advanced grid, nothing else… still get the same results… do I need to use layers pro 1.6? what else could the issue be??

also,I Just reset it to Overlay, and it dose not show “Show Post Excerpts” but id does one Hover.. (with the double image).. shame I can’t get it to work, as its a really nice plug in.. :-(

I am using @PalaBari Ceen layers WP theme and it came with 1.5.4, happy to purchase the standalone plug-in if you think it will solve the issue.

My friend, I am afraid that I can only make sure the AGS is working fine with LayersWP as it is following the codex. You should try to use pure LayersWP not a third party child theme and you see the result.
Please understand we don’t debug other issues that come from others.

Hello, my multiple choices menu works only in when “mouse hover” I can just see all “fixed” and always visible. I’m working with Masonry list style and with show filter and multiple choices selected. Can you please help me out? It’s under Layers and Layers Pro

Thanks in advance, Andrea

Please send me url so I can see what is happening exactly.
You may like to send it by PM message, click on my ID.

PM Sent! Thanks

Hi! I just experienced a huge problem… All the filters/categories are suddenly empty… it´s not showing any thumbnails? It´s been working ok until now… have not made any major changes nor updates. Any chance you guys now whats up?

Can’t really know what is the problem, can you describe more? And don’t share your purchase code next time, you don’t need to, it’s dangerous for you sometimes.


I have problem after copy my website form test url to

The problem is obviously with the Layers Advanced Grid Style plugin. When I turn it on, there is error on website with one part of website created by this plugin (Advanced grid widget).

The error is:

b>Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-content/plugins/layers-advanced-grid-style-1.1.0/widgets/modules/ags.php on line 283

Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-content/plugins/layers-advanced-grid-style-1.1.0/widgets/modules/ags.php on line 283

And after that:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: [] operator not supported for strings in /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-content/plugins/layers-advanced-grid-style-1.1.0/includes/core/helpers/post.php:50 Stack trace: #0 /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-content/plugins/layers-advanced-grid-style-1.1.0/partials/content-hover-effect.php(52): advanced_grid_style_meta(72, Array, ‘footer’, ‘meta-info ’, Array) #1 /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-content/plugins/layers-advanced-grid-style-1.1.0/widgets/modules/ags.php(395): include(’/web/htdocs4/sk…’) #2 /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-includes/class-wp-widget.php(372): Layers_Advanced_Grid_Style_Widget->widget(Array, Array) #3 /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-includes/widgets.php(743): WP_Widget->display_callback(Array, Array) #4 /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-content/themes/layerswp/builder.php(28): dynamic_sidebar(‘obox-layers-bui…’) #5 /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-includes/template-loader.php(74): include( in /web/htdocs4/skiservisrapotincz/home/www/wp-content/plugins/layers-advanced-grid-style-1.1.0/includes/core/helpers/post.php on line 50

After this code the site loading is stopped.

Thank you for helping us.


Please try not to use the theme or contact the child theme author, not every Layers Child Theme are well made. If you turn to use original Layers, you will see AGS works well.

But, on the test page the plugin worked well, after migrating to I got that error

Please understand, we don’t help to debug a child-theme, you should ask the child-theme author “why his theme works something wrong with AGS?”
Debugging his child-theme? No, it’s not our job. Our job is to make AGS works with Layers, not its child-theme that made by someone else.

Any update.. coming soon!!

HI, AGS will not be updated due to Layers had a big changed(turn to work with Elements builder), but AGS still work with old Layers builder.

The Layers is total different base now.
