To create a gallery you must upload a number of images to the page or post where you want the gallery. You will see the number of images shown in the gallery tab after clicking the “Add an Image” icon.

To create a gallery return to the editor without inserting any of these images. You will see a new icon in the visual editor toolbar. This is the WP3Gallery button for inserting the gallery shortcode. Place your cursor where you want the gallery to appear and click the button.

The [ gallery ] shortcode is added.

That’s it, your plugin is now in use. Your images will now be paginated.


To customise the plugin you may want to change the number of images displayed per page or the colouring of the navigation buttons. The CSS file packaged with this plugin gives you control over the styling of these buttons.

To change the number of images per page change line 208 ($nums = 12;) in wp3_gallery.php from 12 to the number you require.

To change the sort order you should change lines 136 and 137.
