5.3. Image Gallery

An image Gallery might be useful for documenting an event, like an open-house, centenary, or art gallery.

  1. Create/edit a page, and click the Add Media button.
  2. Click Create Gallery in the top left of the window.
  3. Click on all the images you wish to include (you can upload more images by clicking the Upload Files link near the top of the window).
  4. Once you’ve selected all of your images, click the Create a new gallery button at the bottom right-hand side of the page.
  5. Here, you can rearrange images and the number of columns to display. When finished, click Insert Gallery at the bottom right.
  6. Ta Dah! Now enter text either above or below the grouped box of images.
  7. To edit, just click on the group and then click on the edit icon.

Advanced Gallery editing:

  1. Click the Text tab (next to the Visual tab that you’re working with) at the top right of your Edit window. A shortcode appears in place of the gallery, for example:
    [gallery ids="2343,2340"]
  2. To make the images slightly larger and more usable, adjust the shortcode so that it appears as follows (note: the ids will be different for your instance):
    [gallery ids="2343,2340" size="medium"]
  3. Click Update at the top right of the Edit screen to save your changes.
