Gallery Management: Learn how to add NextGen Gallery to a Page or Post in WordPress
Once you create a gallery and upload some images we need to get that gallery onto a page or post so it shows up on your website.
This is a two step process.
Step 1: add the gallery to the page, the gallery will appear, as will the page when you navigate to it; BUT, in order to get there from the album, we need to link it.
Step 2: link the gallery to the page – Unless you link the gallery to the page from the Gallery Settings, neither the gallery or the page will appear when you click the thumbnail from the Album.
Step One: Add a gallery to an existing page/post
Open the page or post that you want the Gallery to appear on.
Remember to “Update” the page/post.
Step Two: Link gallery to a page in Gallery Settings
When a visitor clicks on the thumbnail in your album, the gallery is suppose to open on the page you just inserted the gallery (Step 1). In order for that to happen, we need to tell the album which page to retrieve (step two).
Navigate to Gallery> Galleries and open the gallery you want to link.
The other items in the Gallery Settings are covered under Album Management
What’s the difference between a Gallery and an Album?
An Album acts as a container for your Galleries, with one image that represents the work in that gallery. When you click on the thumbnail in an Album, that gallery page appears with all the images in that gallery. A Gallery is an individual group of images.
Now that we know all about Galleries let’s learn about Albums
