p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Photo gallery Wordpress plug-in


[I'm not a pro, but this seemed like the right forum to ask the question in.]

Does anyone have experience/opinions on which photo gallery plug-in to use in a Wordpress site? I've tried the free versions of EnviraGallery, Gmedia Gallery, etc. I like some layout formats they have, but not others. Most of them don't have social media sharing capabilities in their free versions.

I'm now considering the possibility of paying for one that will give me the following capabilities:
- ability to create albums within albums
- ability to create different layout styles (regular thumbnails, tiled mosaic, etc.)
- create slide-shows
- rich lightbox capabilities, including social sharing
- and reasonably fast

Thanks.

I use Core from Themeforest at Envato Marketplace.

IIRC it was $30. It is relatively easy to set up.

I don't use a lot of the features and it omits some you are looking for but they have lots to choose from.
Works great for me but there are a ton of options in other templates that may interest you.

I will PM me a link to my site to see how I set mine up.

Thought what I did might help you...though it is not a plugin

I created my own WP blog from scratch. Gradually, I was able to learn how to connect my Smugmug photo gallery (about $10 per month) to the blog. So the viewer can switch back and forth between the two.

If you wish, click the link to see how easily it works. It opens quickly and you immediately see the "Photo Gallery" option.

http://itsaboutnature.net

I need to update the WP blog and get a theme that is much more interactive. I do not like that right sidebar. But you know how it is.....one thing or another all the time.

I am very open to any suggestions/advice anyone has for me too.

Have fun

Robert

Robert, thanks for the link to your site. Very informative for those interested in nature. Have you looked into a way of integrating smugmug into your personal domain so that the photos appear as a page in www.itsaboutnature.net instead of itsaboutnature.smugmug.com? I'm wondering if that's even possible. I was specifically considering zenfolio for that purpose.
