    Hi themeweaver,

    I recently installed Jetpack – yes, I know there’s some controversy behind this plugin, but I find that it has some useful features. But I have not been able to use one of the features I really like – the Carousel image browser.

    The Carousel Q&A (http://jetpack.me/support/carousel/) says:

    “Please verify if your theme has some custom gallery functionalities. The Carousel deactivates itself if it detects that the theme in use is overwriting the gallery shortcode, to not conflict.”

    Can you help me sort this out?

    Thanks!

    The theme removes some of the default styling and replaces it with our own.

    To disable this add the following in functions.php in child theme or in parent theme.

    remove_filter( ‘gallery_style’ , ‘livingos_remove_gallery_css’ );

    But I have juts been using the carousel in the Lush theme which shares the same framework as Xi. So not sure what the problem is.

    Do you get an error? Does the the plugin report the above or is that just part of their troubleshooting faq?

    Thanks themeweaver – I’ll try adding the code you suggested.

    I’m not getting an error message, Carousel just isn’t working. What I originally posted here came from the FAQ.

    OK, then do you have a url? So we can take a look.

    Most likely cause is some kind of javascript conflict. This may be caused by other plugins you have and not necessarily the theme.

    In chrome open the developer window and view Console to see if there are any javascript errors.

    I couldn’t spot any javascript errors, but this is probably beyond my level of competence. So Here are the urls to a couple of my galleries:

    Thanks!
