Hello good people of SNN. I am not sure about you, but I have discovered recently that the <gallery> template and its functions has changed. Besides the change in lay where the images are now enlarged so they stand side-by-side with little space between them and fill out a sizeable portion of their sections, their contents are now also collapsible. While this seems okay, there are drawback to it as well: you can no longer add images directly from the article so you have to open an article to add images, the "gallery" buttons in the editorial windows have been removed, and their sideshow function is no longer present, creating rather awkward gallery sections.
I would therefore like to ask this question: what has happened to our galleries, who is behind this, and is there any way to correct these issues?
