Good Old Gallery

Good Old Gallery helps you use galleries on multiple pages and posts, it also uses jQuery plugins for sliding and fading transitions.

  1. Upload good-old-gallery to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. You now have a new Galleries section underneath Media in the admin menu.
  4. Go to Galleries -> Settings to setup the basic settings.


  1. Click on Add New in the Galleries menu.
  2. Give your gallery an administrative title.
  3. Click on Upload images.
  4. Upload your images and add Title, Description and Link if needed.
  5. Click on Save all changes, close the pop-up.
  6. Click on Publish to enable your gallery.


To use your new gallery in a page/post you use the [good-old-gallery] shortcode, use the generator to build one.

  1. Go to a page or a post.
  2. Click on the Insert Good Old Gallery icon next to Upload/Insert.
  3. Generate your shortcode and click Insert into post.


You can make your own themes, just create a gog-themes directory in either wp-content or your active themes directory, and the plugin will automatically find any themes located there.

Creating a theme is rather simple, just start out with one of the themes found in the themes catalog in good-old-gallery.

The structure of a theme is:

|- my-theme/my-theme/*.* (any image resources used in theme-name.css)
|- my-theme/my-theme.css (this is the only required file)  
|- my-theme/my-theme.png (preview in with size 300x150 px, must be a png)

Fill in the file headers in the css, only Style Name and Class are required, but the more you fill in the better.

Now add some css to style your Good Old Galleries.

When using an image in your css you should use url(theme-name/image-name.png) without quotes. This is to allow the cached css file to add absolute paths to your images.

If you enable all themes on the settings page and build the css cache, you can use [good-old-gallery theme="theme-class"] to use per gallery themes.


You are also given a new widget called Good Old Gallery, use it in regions where a selected gallery always should be shown.
