Recommended Gallery Plugin?

Recommended Posts

insatiableiam

I was using Cincopa for awhile on my website but my trial is running out and I am not sure if I want to have a monthly subscription just for a small plugin, more comfortable with buying a license if anything.

 

Was wondering if any of you had any recommendation to get a clean gallery plugin to show case my portfolio work? 

 

If it's any visual help, I would like something like this http://codecanyon.net/item/mikado-grid-gallery-for-wordpress/full_screen_preview/7028624 or as long it's clean and tiled it's okay too but I like to keep it clean, similar to how the UI is on the windows 8

 

Thanks

Hi

I use only WP gallery with Jetpack plugin (Gallery Carousel)

You can see my test web

Perhaps this is a option free.

Would I be able to make more than just one gallery on the same page? I am not looking to make each section a separate page.

 

Thanks

Take a look for sample

I have these inside of a text bot with an embedded code, I want to achieve the exact same results (I was using the plugin you see there previous but my trial ran out and I don't want to have a subscription base for something I can achieve)

Wp gallery will have its own styling but you can use css to adjust it to make it match closer to one you've done previously.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

The problem with running into WP gallery and say Tiled Galleries Carousel Without Jetpack , is they use a short code. The only way I know how to get around using those plugins to my advantage is making separate pages for each category  because they use short codes and not actual embedded codes I can past into the textbox in DMS. If you know a way around it, I'll gladly apprecriate it or even to build a grid like this with the portfolio http://lauranoll.com/#

 

Times like this makes me wish I knew how to code my own image gallery from scratch haha

I am looking for something exactly like this too!

Something with the flexibility of "essential grid" (http://themepunch.com/essential/), but they cannot click and view multiple images with the next button.

 

I cannot find any plugin that provides for a few grid options (controlling spaces between images, overlay icons or colors, etc) for galleries.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

quintinm not sure you will find anything much more flexible than essential grid, though it sounds as if you you are looking for a different kind of layout than that plugin offers. It would help if you show examples of what you are actually looking for even if you have to mock it up, so that it is easier to point you in the right direction


Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!
