Popeye presents images from the WordPress media library in a nice and elegant way within your posts and pages. Use it to save space when displaying a collection of images and offer your users a simple way to show a big version of your images without leaving the page flow.
The plugin is very easy to set up and integrates automatically into your posts or allows you to use a shortcode. It comes with several styles but can be also easily customized to integrate into your blog’s design.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Choose your insertion mode & style in the ‘Settings’ menu
- Is there any integration with NextGEN gallery?
Currently no. But you are very welcome to give me some insight on how the NextGEN gallery works and how I can hook up on their galleries and pictures.
- Does it work with PHP4?
