Gallery Plus

Description

The built-in WordPress gallery has some options that are accessable through the use of shortcodes, but if you do not know them or the proper input they can be hard to use. Similarly, there is now wat to make system wide changes without having to use shortcodes on all your galleries. This plug-in creates an options page for some of those shortcodes along with adding other features that can extend the gallery’s functionality.

New Features

  1. Added singleonly shortcode option.

Installation

  1. Copy ‘gallery-plus’ folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Change any settings through the Gallery Plus menu in the Admin section.
