Media Tagz Gallery

Description

Media Tags is a great plugin that allows you to add
tags to your media – something that should come out of the box. However, the Media Tagz Gallery takes it to
another level by adding the ability to pull in your photos by tag names to create a simple, yet flexible way to
create a gallery. No need for bloated image gallery plugins that just become outdated over time.

Features

  • gallery display by using media tags
  • display a tag-based album using media tags – opens to a gallery page
  • generate random image (url)
  • “load more” button to load more images via ajax
  • modal popup: loads large image via ajax
  • modal displays camera meta (iso, f-stop, exposure)
  • add hyperlink to media (displays in modal)
  • Bootrap 3 html syntax ready
  • no css style – a blank canvas (with the exception of the modal style)
  • shortcodes enabled

Screenshots

  • Showing albums (top) and a gallery (below)
  • Showing an album page (taxonomy page for Media Tags)
  • An example of the modal popup
