When one clicks on a picture, a slide show of pix in the post comes up. Along with navigation buttons Prev and Next there is a picture count. 1 of 5, 2 of 5, etc.

Where does this count info live. On a recent post, the numbering is wrong. All the pictures show, but they are numbered wrong. The numbering jumps from 1 to 5. In this case # 5 is really #2, etc through the series of pixs.

I have seen this issue before when editing a post. If I delete pictures, and then add different pictures, the count is wrong. But once the article is published it sorts out and is correct. This time it did not.

see the effect here:


I made a minor change in the post and re-saved it. That did not fix the count, I deleted the cache to be sure the current version was being served. All to no avail. Where do I look next.


PS: I also did a repair and optimization of the sql db files. Did squat.

I think the order is defined on the gallery tab of the media uploader screen.

I don’t follow. If I go to:

Media > Add New

I see a box to drag and drop media files. Doing so uploads the file to the server, as part of the Library. I can then click save to confirm its addition to the Library, but I don’t see any place for numbers. And, that same pix file could be used in several posts, and have a different number in each post.

When I add a media file from the Library to a post, I also don’t see any field that would declare that number in the slide show.

Also, in the past once the post was published, the numbers sorted themselves out, without any intervention on my part.

Go here and then click on the top picture for a slide show. Then watch the numbers in the line at the bottom of the slide show picture: Image X of Y, etc

All the pictures are shown in the slide show, but the numbering is wrong.

Ok, nevermind I was thinking about something else. The picture order is determined by the order they appear in the content. I see the problem with that specific post is that you’ve added some images that linked to the image source, then you’ve went back and deleted the image itself but left the link tag, that’s where the count is getting off. You’ll need to edit your post and probably best to use the html tab so you can remove the unused anchor tag.
