Adding a Gallery to your Self-hosted WordPress Website - part 1 | Neogain Online Marketing Adding a Gallery to your Self-hosted WordPress Website - part 1 | Neogain Online Marketing Presentation Transcript

    • Adding a Gallery to your Self-hosted WordPress Website – part 1
    • Adding a gallery to a self-hosted WordPress website isn’t a complex topic, but there are tips which if used, will increase the effectiveness of the gallery.
    • This guide is split into two and looks at a popular WordPress gallery plugin, plus provides you with useful tips.
    • If you require a WordPress developer or designer, please hire Neogain.
    • The WordPress gallery plugin.
    • A popular WordPress gallery plugin is the NextGEN Gallery.
    • The gallery plugin has been around for a while.
    • It is an extremely feature rich plugin that continues to impress and is highly configurable.
    • By default it will create a thumbnail gallery and when you select an image, the image will be displayed in a ‘lightbox’ window i.e. shaded background with the image in a white rectangle / square.
    • How to upload your images.
    • There are a few different ways to create galleries using NextGEN Gallery, one of which is to present it with a zip archive containing your images.
    • However before you select your images, make sure you read our advice in part 2 of the guide.
    • Once the NextGEN Gallery is installed you can:
    • 1. Log into your WordPress Administrator dashboard.
    • 2. From the left-hand menu options, select ‘Add Gallery / Images’ from the ‘Gallery’ menu.
    • 3. Select ‘Upload a Zip-File’, then select your zip file containing the images and upload.
    • Even once the file is uploaded, do not leave the web page until it has finished creating the gallery.
    • How to place the gallery into your page or post.
    • The NextGEN Gallery plugin makes placing a gallery into your page a breeze.
    • Once you’ve imported your gallery, all you need to do is find its ID (number) and then paste that ID along with a code (tag), calling the gallery.
    • Example:
    • 1. Log into your WordPress dashboard as an administrator.
    • 2. Select ‘Manage Gallery’ from the ‘Gallery’ menu to show a list of your galleries, including the ID of each gallery.
    • 3. Then within your post you place, with 19 in this example being the gallery ID.
    • When you publish your page or post, you will discover your gallery thumbnails are displayed where you placed the gallery code.
    • To be continued….
    • There is no point chucking a bundle of images into a zip file and uploading, then only to find nobody really cares, struggles to view the images or leaves your website directly afterwards.
    • Please read part two of our adding a gallery to a WordPress blog guide which provides some useful advice and insight to help you get going.
    • If you require a WordPress designer , please get in touch.
