The RPS Image Gallery plugin takes over where the WordPress gallery leaves off by adding slideshow and advanced linking capabilities.
You must have the Redux Framework plugin installed in order to edit the default options. Once activated you will see an Image Gallery link show under the WordPress admin Settings tab.
Yes. Any shortcode attribute will override the gallery default settings.
Have a look at the "Other Notes" tab.
You can refer to the gallery instructions posted at WordPress.com support.
Nothing bad. The default WordPress Gallery behavior will take over and any shortcode attributes that are specific to RPS Image Gallery are ignored.
You may use any of the standard image sizes including "thumbnail", "medium", "large", "full" and any other additional image size registered by the active theme.
[gallery size="thumbnail" size_large="large"]
The fields "Gallery Link URL" and "Gallery Link Target" on the Edit Media screen allow you to specify the settings for each image (see screenshots).
[gallery link="none" slideshow="false"]
[gallery id="321,455" orderby="title" order="asc"]
Notice for WordPress 3.5+ Users: When the "ids" attribute and "id" attribute are present in the same shortcode, the "ids" attribute will be used to determine which images should be included and what order they will be in.
The plugin will fall back to the image title if a caption or description is not defined for the image.
Yes. You will need to select which one you want to use, but the approach is simple:
[gallery caption="true" caption_source="caption"] [gallery caption="true" caption_source="description"]
Though the WordPress Gallery editor only allows you to manage a single gallery, you can combine galleries from multiple post/pages onto a single page. To do this, create a post/page for each gallery that you want to include. Record the post IDs for the gallery pages, then add a gallery shortcode for each of them on the post/page that will contain them. For example:
[gallery id="134" group_name="group1"] [gallery id="159" group_name="group2"]
This code will pull the gallery from post 134 and 159 and display them one after the other. The group name attribute allows for each gallery to display in a separate slideshow. Excluding the group name or making it the same will cause the slideshow to be contiguous between the galleries.
Alternatively, you can create multiple galleries from the attached images on a post/page. To do so, get a list of the image (attachment) IDs that you want for each gallery, then pass them to the gallery shortcode in the "include" attribute like so:
[gallery include="10,11,24,87"] [gallery include="7,16,23,45"]
Keep in mind that all of the included images must be attached to the post/page to be successfully added to the gallery.
Since version 2.0.9, all you need to do to combine multiple galleries is pass along a comma delimited list of ids like so:
[gallery id="134,159" orderby="title"]
This code will take all of the images from the two galleries, merge and order them by the image title.
fancybox version 1.3.4 is included with this plugin and there are plans to support fancybox2 in a future release.
You can make the EXIF data show by adding the exif_locations argument to the shortcode like so.
[gallery exif="true" exif_locations="slideshow"]
The EXIF fields that can be displayed are "camera", "aperture", "focal_length", "iso", "shutter_speed", "title", "caption", "credit", "copyright" and "created_timestamp". The order you enter the fields is reflected in the output.
[gallery exif="true" exif_locations="slideshow" exif_fields="aperture,focal_length,iso,shutter_speed"]
Requires: 3.6 or higher
