Easy Image Gallery

Easily create an image gallery on your posts, pages or any custom post type

There comes a time when you need more flexibility than the standard WP gallery offers, That's when this plugin steps in. This plugin's goal is to make it easy to create a gallery and place it wherever you need. A perfect example would be to create a product gallery for an ecommerce website and then have the flexibility to position it where you wanted to match your theme's design.

This plugin allows you to easily create an image gallery on any post, page or custom post type. Images are can be added and previewed from the metabox. Images can be re-ordered by drag and drop.


  1. Drag and drop re-ordering
  2. Add gallery to any post, page or custom post type
  3. If more than one image is added to the gallery, the images become grouped in the lightbox so you can easily view the next one
  4. CSS and JS are only loaded on pages where needed
  5. Images link to larger versions (can be turned off)
  6. Fully Localized (translation ready) with .mo and .po files
  7. Add multiple images to the gallery at once
  8. Uses the thumbnail size specified in Settings -> Media
  9. Custom webfont icon for hover effect
  10. Uses the new WP 3.5+ media manager for a familiar and intuitive way to add your images
  11. WordPress 4.7 Ready


Galleries are automatically appended to the bottom of your post/page unless you use the shortcode below. Using the shortcode will give you finer control over placement within the content area. Plugin settings are located under Settings -> Media
