This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



EasyGals is a plugin that automatically adds a thumbnail gallery to a post if the post has images attached to it and
has a <!–easygals–> marker in it. The marker is replaced by the gallery. It can be used together with lightbox and
causes no problems with galleries in previous posts that were made by hand.


  • Admin screen where lightbox compatibility can be turned on (note: make sure you’re not using another plugin that also
    inserts lightbox code, you can just keep using that one)
  • Set style rules for the EasyGals galleries in the EasyGals options screen


EasyGals was tested in WordPress 2.3 but I don’t see any reasons why it shouldn’t work in earlier versions of WordPress.

So how do I use this thing?

Usage of this plugin is simple, you may configure it by going to ‘Options –> EasyGals’. To use EasyGals you simply write
a post and upload some pictures with it. Before publishing it, you’ll need to add a marker in your post at the position
you would like the gallery to be displayed. When you’re using the visual rich editor you’ll need to go into the tab that
says ‘code’, and type <!-–easygals–-> where you would like the gallery to appear.

How do I control EasyGals appearance?

A gallery that’s generated by EasyGals is contained within a div with a class of ‘easygals’. The styling can be done in
the EasyGals options screen.
