I purchased the Photo Mosaic Plugin in this morning and the look is great, exactly what i was looking forward. However I’m having difficulties editing pages where I have inserted a photomosaic gallery. There is a lag on all actions.

Can you advise what the problem might be?

The only place PhotoMosaic affects editing in the WordPress Admin is by adding itself to the list of templates when creating a gallery. Are you doing something non-standard for editing?

Hi Makfak. I haven’t done anything non-standard. I simply went add meadia>create gallery and chose the photomosaic option in the drop down. Happy for you to take a look?

The form on my author page emails me directly… you can contact me there with login credentials to your site and I’ll take a look.

Hello makfak – congratulations to your PhotoMosaic plugin – great work!

I only have a problem with the Show Resize Transition feature. When I check out your Live Preview everything works fine. But when I test the plugin in my WordPress 4.7.2 the responsive transition dosen´t work – although it´s turned on in PhotoMosaic settings.

Can you help?

Thank´s in front and best regards chris

If you provide a link to a page where I can see the problem happening I’ll take a look.

Hey there,

Is there a way to always maintain particular posts at the top, that is, specify one more more posts to be shown first in the mosaic, regardless of post date?

If you’re auto-generating the gallery with the category="..." attribute, no, WordPress returns the post sorted by date.

If you’re using the Create Gallery tools to make your gallery PhotoMosaic will always honor the order you specify. If that order is being ignored make your Order setting isn’t set to Random.

double post

the plugin make problum when open image from the gallary the site menu show up on it

Please provide a link to a page where I can see the problem happening and I’ll take a look.

I try to update from 2.15.3 to 2.15.7

I’ve responded to your email, but for anyone reading this…

Please describe what you see when you try to update. Include any error messages or unexpected behavior.

Also, don’t forget that you can update manually. Downloading from your CodeCanyon Downloads page will always give you the latest version. Then, in your WP site, deactivate and uninstall the plugin (you won’t lose any of your galleries). Now you can upload and activate the new version.

hi is it possible to add lightbox bridge for ilightbox:

I’ll look into it.


I need to create something specifically like this grid:

Will I be able to do that?

Thanks in advance for your response :)

This is exactly what PhotoMosaic does. If you haven’t played with the demo yet, you should. These settings will make the gallery look like your example…

columns: 3
padding: 5
loading transition: 'slide-up'

Let me know if you have any further questions.


Great plugin. I’m having some issues on my site:

Receiving an error:

Notice: Undefined index: QUERY_STRING in /hermes/bosnaweb04a/b425/ipw.jcooney7/public_html/website2013/wp-content/plugins/photomosaic-for-wordpress/public/class-photomosaic-public.php on line 990

Can you help me fix it?

Thanks, Brandon

It looks like you’ve stopped using PhotoMosaic. If you decide to try again and continue to see that error let me know and I’ll try to help.

Hi makfak! I’m a complete noob when it comes to CSS and the likes. I simply want the Pin It button to appear one each image in the mosaic in our portfolio;

Also how can I disable the hover. I don’t want it red colour, just nothing!

Appreciate your help here mate :)

For a ‘Pin It’ button you’ll need a Pinterest plugin.

I’m not sure what you’re referring to when you talk about the ‘red colour’ but to remove the opacity on hover simply add the following to your Custom CSS setting.

.photoMosaic a:hover img { opacity:1; }

Good Luck.

hi i was wondering if there is a way to change the opacity for the photo swipe light-box: i’s like it to be a white background

also still trying to remove the hover effect on images: can you provide more details on how to do this

PhotoMosaic doesn’t handle for your lightbox’s configuration. You’ll need to look at your lightbox plugin’s settings for those features.

Beyond that… since PhotoMosaic’s Custom CSS simply adds CSS to the page, any style you put there will affect the whole page.

Photomosaic switches to a single column view on most mobile sizes, but I’d like it to have at least three columns, no matter what screen size it’s being viewed at. Is there a setting that would allow me to do that? A minimum number of columns, perhaps?

Read the text just below the Columns setting. It explains how to set a range of columns (e.g. 3-5).

Hello! My purchase lic is: 6e7ae97d-14a2-4f37-97a3-6a96a4bbdc47 and I just renewed my license so I can receive more support. Thanks!

We are having a problem at where the gallery doesn’t downsize to single column when viewed on mobile. I turned off all other plugins but that did not fix the problem, so its not a plugin conflict. I also changed to the standard WP Theme for 2017…again, this did not help. But now we know its not a theme conflict either.

Any ideas on how to fix? Thank you!

Hello, Makfak! Actually, I have that setting at “0” as stated in the instructions to leave it set to “auto columns” but that isn’t working. This is an issue on a few sites, currently. Any other thoughts? WordPress CMS, theme and all plugins are up to date as well and I have already performed a plugin conflict test. Nothing works to fix this issue. Thanks, in advance, for your continued help on this!

Make sure you haven’t set the number of columns on the shortcode itself (this overrides the global settings set in the PhotoMosaic admin).

If the admin is set to “0” and columns isn’t set on the shortcode… the form on my author page emails me directly… send me login credentials to your site and I’ll take a look.

AHHHHH! That was it. The short code stated columns=”4” so I removed that and it fixed the issues. Thanks so much! I love simple answers. :)

Hello MakFak, my php7 compatibility check, said me: The following plugins/themes are not compatible with PHP 7.0. PhotoMosaic for WordPress

Which php version does your plugin support?

To the best of my knowledge, there’s nothing in PhotoMosaic that is incompatible with PHP7.

Which checker did you use? Did it provide any detail about the incompatibilities?


I’m sorry to ask this but I ave been trying to resolve for ages with no luck and I’m sure you get asked it a lot. I read through and followed FAQ about building a mosaic based on posts. No matter what I have tried after inserting a gallery on a post, I have not been able to get that gallery to show up as a mosaic on another page by using the category shortcode.

This is my test page which is currently pulling images from a post gallery using ids shortcode.

What I’d like this page to do is pull images from a specific category of post. Have I understood it correctly in terms of functionality – that this is possible or am i missing something really silly?

This is the shortcode I am using on my gallerypagetest

[gallery type=”circle” size=”large” theme=”photomosaic” category=”category:uncategorised” limit=”10”]

I would really appreciate any insight you have and again apologies if this is repetition for you!

You don’t need the extra ‘category’ in your shortcode.

[gallery theme=”photomosaic” category=”uncategorised” limit=”10”]

Other than that… check your spelling. While the WP interface might use spell it “uncategorised” I don’t know if the category_name is also spelled that way (in American English the category_name is “uncategorized”).

There are instructions for finding the category_name in your WP-Admin > PhotoMosaic > FAQs > “How do I make a mosaic from posts in a category?”.

Hi would you be able to help with getting a gallery to work from recent blog posts? I’ve followed you in-plugin support advice and it still doesn’t work.

I know my profile doesn’t say that I’ve purchased the plugin but that’s because another web designer working on this same project purchased it for the website but I am the one now working on it.

The form on my author page emails me directly. If you contact me there and include your Purchase Code (it came with your download) I’ll be happy to help.

Hallo, your Live Preview doesnt work. Please send me some link which is working. Thx

The demo has been fixed. Thanks for letting me know it was broken.

hi there, I use the newest Version of WordPress 4.7.4 and the newest Version of photomosaic. I wanted to place two photomosaic galleries in one post. I went through the steps you explained… I opened the post clicked “Add media” and created a gallery with images out of my library, I then chose theme “photomosaic” and got this…

[gallery theme=”photomosaic” ids=”9593,9577”]

For the second gallery I did the same steps exept from some different config for the mosaic and got this…

[gallery theme=”photomosaic” size=”large” link=”file” ids=”9623,9575,9626,9587,9625,9588,9624,9584,9583,9580,9579,9576,9574”]

-> Now the second gallery do not show up. So I tried this…

photomosaic ids=”9593,9577”

-> But this also doesn’t work! The second one still do not show up.

ALSO your example of same galleries is not working!

You could even do the following… gallery theme=”photomosaic” ids=”1,2,3,4,5” gallery theme=”photomosaic” ids=”1,2,3,4,5”

So what’s wrong with it? Could you please help?




makfak Author

The demo has been fixed. Thanks for letting me know.

PhotoMosaic absolutely supports multiple mosaics on the same page. I also don’t see anything wrong with your examples. Doing something like…

[gallery theme="photomosaic" ids="1, 2, 3, 4, 5"]
[gallery theme="photomosaic" ids="6, 7, 8, 9, 10"]

... should absolutely work.

If you can provide a link to a page where I can see the problem happening I’ll take a look.

hi, thanx for the fast answer. I found what caused the problem. It was a plugin called “PhotoMosaic : Lightbox Bridge : Responsive Lightbox”.
