Galleria in its way to manage theme parse all link tags to find the css attached to the theme. To make it work in production mode you must add themes javascript and css called by the template.

// Patch for Plone
// Escapes \+\+ from the urls \+\+resource\+\+, \+\+plone\+\+ and \+\+theme\+\+
// to avoid errors in RegExp.
_fix_plone_resource_url = (function(url) {
    return url.replace('\+\+plone\+\+', '\\+\\+plone\\+\\+').replace(
        '\+\+resource\+\+', '\\+\\+resource\\+\\+').replace(
            '\+\+theme\+\+', '\\+\\+theme\\+\\+')


// look for manually added CSS
$('link').each(function( i, link ) {
    // Patch for Plone
    reg = new RegExp( _fix_plone_resource_url(theme.css) );
    if ( reg.test( link.href ) ) {

        // we found the css
        css = true;

        // the themeload trigger
        _themeLoad( theme );

        return false;

As you can see the original code has been patched to support ++resource++, ++plone++ and ++theme++ URLs.

Starting from version 1.6.1 this package is compatible only with Plone 5.2
