The East West (EW) Gallery Plugin allows you to organize photos and YouTube videos on your WordPress website into folders and display each folder in its own Jssor slider. Customization settings allow you to tailor the fonts, borders, colors, backgrounds and photo sizes to match your website theme. There is also an option to display only the content from a single folder in a slideshow page (without the index links).
EW Gallery Settings
Following are detailed descriptions of each of the EW Gallery Settings:
Gallery Index Settings
Index Margin – The margin around the folder index. This field accepts standard CSS margin values, i.e. “10px”, “10px 5px”, “10px 5px 0px 5px”, “auto”, etc.
Index Padding – The padding around the folder index.
Index Alignment – This setting determines how the index is aligned on the page.
Gallery Thumbnail Settings
Thumbnail Width – This is total width of the Index Thumbnails, including the border. So for example, if you want the image to be 150px wide with a 3px border, set the width at 156px (3px + 150px + 3px).
Thumbnail Margin – This is the margin around each Index Thumbnail.
Thumbnail Padding – This setting applies to the padding around each Index Thumbnail.
Thumbnail Alignment – This setting will determine whether the thumbnails are aligned to the left, center, or right side of the page.
Thumbnail Border Style – The border around each thumbnail can be solid, dotted, or no border.
Thumbnail Border Width – The width of the border around each thumbnail.
Thumbnail Border Color – The thumbnail border color.
Thumbnail Border Radius – For rounded corners, use this setting. For square thumbnails, set to 0px.
Slider Wrapper Width – This setting applies to the maximum width of the container used for the slider and sets the maximum width of the slider and border. In most cases it is best to set this as a percentage of the page container width, i.e. 80% or 100%, so that the slider will resize properly for different page resolutions.
Slider Wrapper Height – The settings applies to the maximum height of the container used for both the slider and thumbnails (inside the border). The elements inside will adjust to fit inside this height and should be set appropriately for the highest supported resolution,
Slider Width – The setting applies to the maximum internal width of the slider and thumbnails. This should be set for the largest width at the highest supported resolution, such as 800px.
Slider Image Height – This setting applies to the height of the slider image. This should be set to the Wrapper Height, minus the border and thumbnail heights.
Slider Margin – This setting applies to the margin around the slider and should usually be set to auto.
Slider Padding – This setting will create padding around the inside of the slider and is usually set to 0px.
Slider Border Style – Select a solid or dotted border, or no border.
Slider Border Width – Select the border width in pixels.
