Gallery Carousel Without JetPack

Transform your standard galleries into an immersive full-screen experience without requiring you to connect to WordPress.com

I love this Carousel feature that is part of the JetPack plugin however I didn't like that I was being forced to connect my site with WordPress.com to use a feature that has no connection with WordPress.com. Well, I simply forked the Carousel module from JetPack. I am releasing it for all those who want to use this feature with freedom of choice.

The carousel feature transforms your standard built-in WordPRess galleries into an immersive full-screen experience with comments and EXIF metadata.

Want to make your WordPress photo gallery stand out? Then use this jQuery Gallery Carousel without Jetpack plugin.

If you like this plugin, and want to learn more about WordPress, then I suggest that you visit WPBeginner. It is one of the largest free WordPress resource site with tons of WordPress Tutorials, and I'm proud to say that I created it.

If you are not sure how to create a gallery in WordPress, then watch my free WordPress video tutorials. P.S. these WordPress videos contain a lot more than just a tutorial on how to create galleries. It will show you tons of other cool stuff, so use it to your advantage. You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel.

I often get asked what are the best WordPress plugins? Which plugins should I use on my site? What are the must have plugins? I have created a blueprint of all the plugins and tools that I'm using. Take a look at plugins I'm using at WPBeginner.

Gallery Carousel feature was first intorduced for WordPress.com blogs, and now it is available for all WordPress sites. So YES you can switch from WordPress.com to WordPress.org and still keep the Gallery Carousel functionality by using this plugin.

P.S. self-hosted WordPress.org does not mean installing WordPress in your personal computer. You would need web hosting for that. You can follow my WordPress installation tutorial or request a free blog setup.

If you like this plugin, then please leave a good rating. For support just ask the questions here (make sure you ask your questions properly if you want a response).
