This plugin replaces the default WordPress gallery feature with a more fancy image gallery inspired by the "Galleria" JQuery Image gallery.
Sure, I'm using this plugin for the image galleries on the following websites: http://www.greekislandpropertyfinders.co.uk/what-we-are-finding, http://www.stokerowaccommodation.com/gallery.
Upload two or more images using the normal WordPress authoring tools for posts or pages. Once you have some images associated with a post or page, you can use the "Insert gallery" button in the Gallery tab. Alternatively, use the
[gallery] shortcode within your post or page.
There isn't a new settings page or any new configurable options however you will need to set the options in "Settings -> Media -> Thumbnail Size". See installation instructions for more details. If you want to customise how the gallery looks you will need to edit the gallery CSS file.
By default, the gallery works best for 9 images - i.e. a 3x3 grid of thumbnails. But it depends on how you have set it up and whether you mind the user scrolling. I wouldn't recommend having too many images on a webpage - over 50 and your asking for trouble.
Sorry, WordPress is set up to only provide one gallery per post or page. Either split your gallery over multiple posts are Google for tricks/hacks.
This plugin ignores the Gallery columns setting - it uses a fluid layout instead. i.e. the thumnails fit to the container and wrap to the next line as needed. To work out the number of columns the image gallery grid will be you can use the size of the thumbnails and the size of the gallery "ul" element. I recommend setting the thumbnails to 80x80px and the gallery ul element is 310px wide by default - therefore you will get 3 images per column (taking into account margin and border widths).
