The way WordPress (WP) works with these objects (galleries, slideshows etc) is that you have create the item first and then you add it to the page using the system or manually pasting a “[slug]” (that looks like this ) This is a WP link to the object you have made)
Creating a gallery:
1 Create or go to the page that the gallery will appear on.
2 Click “Add Media” button.
3 Top left is a link “Create Gallery” – click this.
4 Select images or upload new.
5 Bottom right – “Create a new gallery” button – click this when finished.
6 Next view is your selected images and gallery settings in the right hand panel.
7 “Update” page (saving)
8 View the result on the site
To Re-Edit a gallery:
In VISUAL mode click on a photo in the relevant gallery. A pencil (Edit) and cross (delete) wil appear. Click on the pencil to edit.
This will take you back to you gallery settings page where you can: edit photos, add/delete photos and change the settings. When finished click on “Update gallery” button and also save the page as well “Update”.
We have modified this built-in gallery mechanism to be responsive and flexible.
A second mechanism then handles the lightbox viewer (Note: this will also automatically scroll through all of the images on the page regardless of which gallery.
