    Hey there,

    I installed your plugin and am trying to use the “attachment” post type (as shown in the video on your homepage – https://ibb.co/ksA2G6). Is there something I need to do to get “attachment” to show? It’s a built-in, default WordPress post type, so I was thinking it should support it out of the box. Is there something I need to enable? I’m sure I’m just missing an option somewhere.

    We ended up removing the attachment post type from the plugin, as it was causing a couple odd bugs.

    I’ll spend a couple hours playing with it again to see if it’s something we can add back in.

    If you’d like to use it anyways, you can adjust your WPSP shortcode like this:

    [wp_show_posts id="xx" settings="post_type=attachment"]

    I tried the shortcode, but that didn’t seem to do anything, what I am trying to do is pull images from the media library…is that possible?

    Thanks,

    Just gave this a try, and it causes a handful of issues unfortunately. That’s why we originally excluded the attachment post type from the options.

    It is something I want to add eventually once the bugs are figured out.

    Tom,

    Thanks for giving it a go! So, what I wanted to do was display my attachments in a masonry layout, with an infinite scroll…if you go to http://www.joshrodg.com/test/inductees you can see my working version. I found a script that showed how to integrate both masonry and isotope layouts into WordPress. I still need to tweak some things, but the functionality is there. I use normal WordPress pagination and chose to show 12 posts, before it loads more.

    I am curious to see what kind of issues you ran into…maybe I can share the code I am using.

    Thanks,
    Josh
