WordPress ‘Next’ button issue on Photo Gallery

Hello all.  I’m advised by Judith that when you select a photo (usually the first one I guess) from any email that you may get due to my (and maybe other’s) posts, the ‘Next’ button (displayed above and to the right of the image) takes you to the last picture in the gallery.  The ‘Previous’ button will then take you backwards through the carousel of photos, (which is not ideal, given that I now always take care to publish them in sequence).

A quick search of Google reveals that this may be an issue reported to the WordPress developers (which clearly hasn’t been fixed yet).   So, to counteract this, I suggest either simply clicking on the image (as this seems to move to the next picture) or use the right arrow button on your keyboard.  (Strangely though the back arrow doesn’t seem to go backwards!)

Alternatively, if you click on the title of the post in your email, it will take you to my site, where everything (I think) works as you might expect.

(For a moment there I almost missed my days working in IT.  I’ll go for a lie down now and hope it passes!) 🙂

  1. Thanks so much for this! It’s very helpful advice. I haven’t run into this problem yet but I’m sure at some point I will so it’s good to know there is a work around for it. 🙂
