Space Boxes

Generate unlimited boxes with multiple layouts and optional lightbox, solely from a WordPress media gallery.

Space Boxes (not Space Balls) was designed to make building content & media grids quick and painless. Each Space Box set is created solely with a WordPress gallery inserted into a custom post type. When you insert the shortcode [spaceboxes id=XX”] , it will display the title, and caption for each image, if they are provided.

Have 7 images in your gallery? Then you’ll have 7 boxes. Want a lightbox? No problem. Control over the grid? Check! There’s even a portfolio mode to show off images or product screenshots.
