Gallery without the Fluff

Adds Gallery management functionality to WordPress, still using the built in Media Uploader & Library. For people who want to use their own jQuery

This plugin is ONLY for people wanting to play around with their theme to get their images displaying in a jQuery gallery or slider script of their choice. You won't find an options page with preset jQuery effects like colorbox or masonry. That's the point. If you want to control which jQuery script you use to style your gallery, all that extra "fluff" sometimes gets in the way.

This simple plugin adds extra features to the wordpress media menu:

  • Create any number of Galleries with the "Add Gallery" screen (just like you would create categories for a post).
  • Each Gallery you create appears as a media menu item, showing the images in the gallery, with drag and drop image ordering.
  • You can also update titles, captions and other meta info for all your gallery images in one bulk action to save time.
  • The "Images into Gallery" screen allows you to assign uploaded images to a gallery.
  • The BEST bit... you can customise the html and variables that will be outputted with the gallery, so you get exactly what you need for your jQuery script to work. Happy days!
  • You then use a shortcode to show your galleries in any page or post.
  • You can also call the gallery directly from a theme file.
  • There are some helpful tips in the "Help" tab to the top right of some screens.


a) Adding the jQuery script itself is up to you because it should be done inside your theme. b) To use this plugin you should be familiar with basic html & how to add jQuery to a theme. See the WordPress Codex for help.

As we're using the default WordPress media menu and uploader all your gallery images are naturally available to your posts and widgets too.

I hope it helps you. If you like the plugin, please vote for it.
