  1. Download the plugin and upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory. Activate through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  2. Download the Free XtremeDockGallery and copy the content of the archive in wp-content folder. (e.g: “”)
  3. Insert the swf into post or page using this tag: [xtreme-dock-gallery]. The default values for width and height are 595 420. If you want other values write the width and height attributes into the tag like so: [xtreme-dock-gallery width="yourvalue" height="yourvalue"]
  4. To configure the dock gallery general parameters use the dockgallery-settings.xml. For individual dock gallery items use the dockgallery-contents.xml file. (tooltips, image path, image link and more)
  5. If you want to use multiple instances of Xtreme Dock Gallery on different pages. Follow this steps:
    a. There are 2 xml files in wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-dock-gallery folder: dockgallery-settings.xml, used for general settings, and dockgallery-content.xml, used for individual items.
    b. Modify the 2 xml files according to your needs and rename them (eg.: dockgallery-settings2.xml, dockgallery-content2.xml)
    c. Open the dockgallery-settings2.xml, search for this tag < object param="contentXML" value="dockgallery-content.xml" /> and change the attribute value to dockgallery-content2.xml .
    d. Copy the 2 modified xml files to wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-dock-gallery .
    e. Use the xml attribute [xtreme-dock-gallery xml="dockgallery-settings2.xml"] when you insert the dock gallery on a page.
  6. Optionally for custom pages use this php function: xtremeDockGalleryEcho(width,height,xmlFile) (e.g: xtremeDockGalleryEcho(595,420,’dockgallery-settings.xml’) )

Remove the logo

If you donít want to have the logo on the top left corner, you’ll have to purchase the commercial package. You’ll also have access to the fla file. After downloading the commercial archive, overwrite the swf file from the /wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-dock-gallery directory.
