FAQ

How to add video to the gallery using plugin?

The Lite version of this plugin supports Youtube and Vimeo. The Pro one supports also self-hosted videos. To add the video to the gallery, please click any image in the gallery editor, you will get a WordPress popup window where you can add the url to the video on the right side of the page where the title, caption and other info is available.

Is your gallery plugin compatible with Gutenberg?

Yes. Our photo & video gallery plugin is fully compatible with Gutenberg editor. We’ve created a custom gallery block which allows you to add the images to any page, post etc. The gallery blocks has its custom settings like in the previous WordPress versions. While adding the Gutenberg block, please put GT3 and you will get our gallery block in the entire blocks list.

Can we use your gallery in WPBakery page builder?

Yes, you can add our GT3 photo & video gallery using the standard content module. You will be able to modify the gallery via the classic WordPress media. Just click edit image gallery in the content editor, you will get a popup window with the option to modify it. The custom photo & video gallery modules are available in Pro version.

Can we use your gallery in Elementor page builder?

Yes, since version 2.4.1.3 you can add any of available galleries using Elementor page builder photo & video gallery widgets. You will get the same functionality as in the Gutenberg gallery block.

Can we use your gallery in Divi page builder?

Yes, the lite version comes with the shortcode system which allows you to create a photo gallery using a custom post type. Once it’s created you can easily use the gallery shortcode on any page created with Divi builder.

Can we use your gallery in Beaver page builder?

Yes, the lite version comes with the shortcode system which allows you to create a photo gallery using a custom post type. Once it’s created you can easily use the gallery shortcode on any page created with Beaver builder.

Can we use your gallery in the custom post types?

Yes, you can do that. Our image gallery is based on the standard WordPress gallery functionality, so you can use it in the custom post types and blog post formats. Please note that CPT should have a classic or Gutenberg editor support.

What happens with our existing galleries if we remove the plugin?

The main idea of the plugin was to keep your galleries on the website even if you remove our plugin. If you disable or remove the plugin all your galleries will be loading on the website. The only difference, they will have a standard WordPress gallery look.

How can we categorize the galleries? Is it possible to do that?

You can’t do that at the moment. We are going to create a custom post type GT3 Galleries where you can add the different categories and display them on the website. You will also be able to create galleries with the categories and filter them using iSotope. This option will be available in Pro version.

The images are loading slowly. What should we do?

It happens because of the uploaded image size. Very often people upload the original images to the media higher than Full HD, in this case the size of the image can reach up to 8-10 MB. If you have for example 10 images on the page the page size will be approximately 80 MB which causes the slow page loading. For such users we’ve created GT3 Image Optimizer plugin, it optimizes all your media library to Full HD format and compress them. You can read more about it on our website.

How can I link the image to external link?

Yes, we have this option available in Pro version of this photo & video gallery plugin. You can easily add the external URL/link to any image from the image gallery.

Does the plugin have a gallery shortcode?

Yes, the shortcode system is supported in the custom post type “GT3 Galleries”. At the moment it supports Grid, Masonry in the Lite version and Packery in Pro.

Does the plugin have image lazy loading option?

Yes, the plugin has a built-in lazy loading functionality. You can enable or disable it for the galleries.

La version gratuite est déjà très performante et j'apprécie la présentation Masonry.

You will find the original topic with this id "update-broke-everything-2/" (no links, as per WP rules). I was originally using this plugin with version 2.4.19, with some custom coding to improve the spacing and stuff, everything was working beautifully, lovely gallery and was about to give it a 5 stars review. Amazing design, lightweight and everything. So why is this a 1 star review then? Because of update 2.5.0, which is nothing more than a scam as far as I'm concerned, and I'll explain you why. Patch notes say Added: New module system Improved: Plugin optimization to meet Google Pagespeed requirements Improved: Image gallery loading optimization. New lazyloading method Improved: GT3 Photo & Video Gallery Pro compatibility Fixed: Minor bug fixes In reality what this update did was also: Removed an huge function within the gallery which made older galleries made with the shortcode for it to work. Which means all the older galleries are borked - images no longer clickable, no more fancybox, errors in browser console log. Removed support for classic editor, leaving only Gutenberg and Elementor (both heavy, slow and buggy). Kept the shortcode functionality, but JUST for the Pro version, so if you want to keep using your shortcodes, you are FORCED to buy it. Massively increased the amount of characters necessary to insert a gallery with the same images and settings. One of my galleries went from 191 to 9591 characters, not joking. I don't have any words to define the 2.5.0 update other than what I said above, or at least scammy/shady marketing practices. For your sake, pick some other plugin to use for your galleries. Note: all the currently existing good reviews are from before this update, and I would have given it 5 stars as well before 2.5.0.

I looked at a lot of plugins with similar functionality but this one had the most flexibility. AND the support is great. They respond quickly and have been very helpful - even adding some custom code for me. Very happy with this plugin.
