It appears that there is some sort of issue between the paid plugin and the WP Big Gallery theme I am using. I switched to another theme which I do not plan on using and everything was fine with the blog posts. I tried the 2014 theme and it was also fine. The odd thing is that there was not an issue with the Free version of the plugin and the WP Big Gallery theme I am using. Other than removing the free plugin and installing and activating the paid plugin nothing else changed. If I were to contact the theme author I’m sure his response would be don’t use the plugin, or potentially a cost to recode something in the theme. Neither of these are good solutions. The puzzling part of this is that if it all worked with the free version of the plugin, what is so different in the paid version?
