An introduction to the WordPress Gallery

I won’t go into how to make a WordPress gallery because the WordPress site has a tutorial for the Gallery Shortcode (new window), but what I will do here is introduce you to this theme’s own gallery styling and more so, the gallery viewer.

Gallery Styling

Each theme we release will always implement the WordPress gallery shortcode feature, but each theme will have the gallery and gallery viewer have it’s own styling—albeit, similar in style.

The Gallery Viewer

Unlike most themes from other theme sites, we’ve given you a gallery viewer with navigation and comments. The viewer will show the title of the photo at the top, the caption just below the image, and then if you use the “Description” field in the image editor, you can get an excerpt for an introduction.

Viewer with Comments

If you decide to enable comments for your gallery, your comments will be just like the comments you see in the blog.

Enable Your Comments

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Theme Options
  2. Look for the “Show image Attachment Page Comments” setting and check the box.
  3. Click “Save & Publish“.

Now you are ready to receive comments on your gallery photographs.
