Claire Bishop, a GC prof, has an art site that is having problems. Olivia, a Digital Fellow, reports, "The issue that Claire is getting with her site ( is that when you click on one of the tags--which is using the project widget and the 'skills' to generate tags--its not displaying the projects that are tagged with that artist. So the filtering isn't working anymore and it used to work."

I (Marilyn) haven't used this before. Please let me know what I should ask. Thanks!

I had an initial look. The Reveal theme uses a jQuery library called Isotope - I think it's The proper values are being passed to Isotope, but it's not filtering as expected. I haven't dug into the source to figure out why.

Ray, can I ask you to take a few minutes to look more deeply into this? Do an initial 20 or 30 minutes, but stop if it feels like a hopeless rabbithole - it's a commercial theme, and we have limited resources to devote to debugging it.

I decided to do some live debugging for this one since I didn't want to create a bunch of posts and images in my dev environment to duplicate this issue.


Fix is deployed on production. I updated Reveal's instance of Isotope and fixed how it was initializing Isotope.

You rock! I'll keep an eye next time I update Reveal (the updates don't come very often) and reapply the changes if necessary.
