Adding Gallery on Any Page

The plugin automatically creates your gallery page(s) when you create a new gallery. However, you can manually insert a gallery on any page/post if you need to.

Use the following shortcode to embed a gallery on any page:

[wppg_photo_gallery id="1"]

The “id” parameter represents the gallery ID.

Creating a Photo/Image Slider

Create an image slider from your gallery images, use the following shortcode

[wppg_photo_slider id="1"]

The “id” parameter represents the gallery ID. You can specify a single gallery or several gallery IDs separated by commas as shown in the example below.

You can combine images from multiple galleries to create a gallery image slider. Here is an example shortcode to show you how to do that:

[wppg_photo_slider id="1,2,3"]

Below is an example of how an image slider looks.

Photo Slider with Carousel

You can also show an image carousel below your photo slider. Use the “show_carousel” parameter in the slider shortcode to show all the image thumbnails in a carousel below the slider. Here is an example shortcode:

[wppg_photo_slider id="1" show_carousel="1"]

Creating Photo Albums
