    Is it possible to have photos to be shown randomly when using photo galleries? If so, how?
    Thank you.

    Pls modify the file gallery-functions.php(framework/functions/gallery-functions.php) line no:13 as below –

     $query_args = array('post_type' => 'gallery_item', 'posts_per_page' => $args['posts_per_page'], 'filterable' => $args['filterable'],'orderby' => 'rand', 'paged' => $paged);

    Hi!
    I’ve modified the code as above but there were no changes. Here’s the link to the website I’m working on http://naitsa.ca/topmodel/. Should I change or add anything else? Thanks.

    Can you pls mention which shortcode is using there to display gallery items?
    The above mentioned changes will work on gallery page.For shortcodes we need to make changes in a different file.

    This is the code I’m using on the page section:

    [show_gallery number_of_columns=”4″ post_count=”12″ image_size=”medium” filterable=”false” no_margin=”true”]

    Pls modify file gallery-functions.php(framework/functions/gallery-functions.php) line no:143 as below –

    $loop = new WP_Query(array('post_type' => 'gallery_item', 'posts_per_page' => $posts_per_page, 'orderby' => 'rand'));

    Still not working. Is there anything I can do? I have also noticed the gallery isn’t opening as lightbox, just linking to the images. Can we fix that too? Thank you.

    It should work, before i have tested the code in my installation.
    Kindly share FTP login credentials, We will check once.

    Strange, On checking your code is perfect but i failed to understand why it is so.
    Could you pls share a temporary login to your site as a private reply ?

    In your Wp Engine site they have disabled Rand function , now we have enabled the same in Wp Engine Advanced Configuration and everything is working fine now.
    You can take a look in this link-
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/wp_query-orderby-random-not-working

    Also we have unchecked “DISABLE HOVER ON GALLERY” option in themeoptions > Gallerypage for lightbox to work.
