    It could be nice to see a demo. It's hard to see what's the difference with regular WP galleries...

    Thanks. But what is exactly the difference with regular WP gallery ?

    Here's a few:

    1. I originally built this as a product gallery for an e-commerce plugin so by using action hooks you have full control over the positioning of the gallery. You cannot do this elegantly with the shortcode
    2. You have full control over the HTML markup and styling, unlike the WP gallery. Handy for developers like me who want to fine tune
    3. The images open in a lightbox, as opposed to an attachment page, and adding more lightbox scripts is easy (if you are a developer)
    4. The ids of the images are stored in the DB against the post's ID, so it's easy for a developer to do more with the images, such as turn them into a slideshow etc

    The usual WP gallery is fine if that's all you need, but I find it's handy to have a bit more control

    Hi Alonso,

    It's always best to start a new support ticket, as this one has been marked as resolved.

    The gallery is automatically appended to the post/page content so you only need to use the shortcode if you want to manually position your gallery somewhere else within the content. In which case you simply insert [easy_image_gallery] somewhere inside the editor.
