Meow Gallery


Meow Gallery allows you to easily enhance the native WordPress gallery, making it responsive, retina, and using modern layouts. Because a demo is worth a thousand words, have a look at this page using the gallery Haikyo: Nara Dreamland. And here is another page using a smaller gallery at the end of an article: Offbeat Japan: Nichitsu.

LAYOUTS. The gallery comes with popular layouts: Masonry, Justified (like Flickr) and Instagram (square images). More will come depending on the trends, ideas and your requests 🙂

FEATURES. This gallery uses the WordPress gallery system naturally without hacking it, or without imposing its own system. It means you can use the Meow Gallery without any fear, your WordPress will not be forced to become independent of it. The gallery is responsive, light and fast. We will never make it overblown with options and features.

COMPATIBILITY. Since this gallery works with WordPress in a natural way, it should be compatible with any other plugins or themes (of course, it depends on how those have been exactly implemented). Of course, it has been tested with WP/LR Sync attributes if you wish to link your galleries with your Lightroom’s collections.

LIGHTBOX. We believe that choice of the lightbox depends on you, so this gallery doesn’t come with one. We however recommend you to use the Meow Lightbox.

Cool gallery

Definitely a cool gallery and a nice cooperation with the LR/WP plugin. Good works guys. Keep it up!

Works well with others

I fell in love with Jordy Meow’s WP/LR Sync plugin which allows synching WordPress and LightRoom. A must have for any photographer working with those 2 tools. Since I liked it so much, I checked out the other plugins from the Meow familly. Gallery is one of them. Not only does it work well with other Meow apps, it also works flawlessly with the native WP Gallery, which is a big plus and exactly what I was looking for in a Gallery plugin. It also works out of the box and is ultra easy to customize. Finally, once, I had a problem with a Meow plugin. I opened a ticket stating my issue and all was resolved within a day or two (I was slow to respond to the extra information needed to solve my issue). In short, great app, great compatibility and great support. Don’t hesitate! Meow Gallery is what you should use.

Nice Plugin !


This plugin is good, it works really well and I really like the fact that it works with the normal wordpress gallery.

Thank you !

Worked out of the box !

I love this plugin because it enhances the native gallery rather than using a different system like some other plugins. So it worked with all the galleries on my site right after installing the plugin !

The masonry layout is looking fine, but I would love more layouts in the futur though !

Keep up the good work !

Need care

Good job and nice idea.
At first I was not able to make it works because deforming images, be careful with your own template CSS like img height set on auto.

Definitely a plugin that can improve and grow fourther.

A perfect way to expand the native gallery options

I always try to use plugins that work with WordPress native gallery, I don’t like to be locked in proprietary systems.

This plugin expands the native gallery showing the pictures in a more attractive way.

And, of course, works beautifully with WP/LR Sync, a must have plugin in my opinion.

I recommend it.
