Quick installation overview

Once you’ve downloaded the plugin from the WordPress plugin repository, use this quick installation overview to get started.

  • Go to ‘Plugins’ > ‘Add new’ > ‘Upload plugin’ > ‘Install now’’
  • If it’s working for you, consider uploading ‘TM Photo Gallery’ folder to the "/wp-content/plugins/" directory directly
  • Activate the plugin through the "Plugins" menu in WordPress
  • After the installation, you will see TM Photo Gallery icon in the left sidebar of your admin panel.


How everything works here


Once everything is installed, you will see the following menu on the sidebar:

media-library-1

When you enter the Media Library section, you will see the working area of our plugin. It looks like this, and it’s very simple in use:

media-library-2

There are three major blocks here:

  • Sets - Here you add new sets and manage the existing ones.
  • Albums -  Add an infinity of albums and manage them here
  • Photos - All the uploaded photos may be found here. New photos can be uploaded here as well.

The purpose of the right block contains all the settings of the selected element. So no matter what item you select, all the setting will be displayed there, on the right.

Also, note that any image you upload through the Media section will be available in the TM Photo Gallery, so you will be able to add these images to your galleries and vice versa. This is very convenient if you want to show your new portfolio works in your new post or create a separate gallery using the pictures from one of your blog posts.

Sets, Albums and Photos, have common settings:

  • Title - Title of the set / album / photo
  • Description - Description of the set / album / photo
  • Add Tags - Specify the tags for the set / album / photo
  • Categories - Specify the categories for the set / album / photo

If you open any uploaded picture, you will notice one more feature that we included to make the work with your gallery pictures easier - Photo Editor.

The editor has two basic functions:

  • Rotating your image in any direction
  • Setting up the focus point

With these, you will not have to edit your image in some separate editor and upload it back to the gallery, so it will save your time in many situations.

I’m sure all of your want to know how to create and manage separate galleries with the help of our plugin; I will show you, no worries! So let’s move to ‘Galleries’ section.


Creating and managing your gallery


add-gallery-1

To create a gallery, just click on the big ‘Add Gallery’ button. Yeah, it’s that simple!

Each gallery can include sets and separate photos, so whenever you open your gallery, you will see all the available sets and pictures, it’s up to you to select what should be included and displayed on the gallery page.

add-gallery-2

On the right sidebar, you can see the files, sets, and albums added to the gallery. You can also delete them from the gallery or remove all the images. To remove a single image, you need to check it and press ‘Delete’ or ‘Remove all’ button.

Gallery options overview


Personally, one of my favorite options on the gallery setting page is the possibility to choose the grid system. I mean, seriously, this tiny detail will make your gallery look fancy.

gallery-edit-1

Speaking of the fancy things, do you want your gallery to stand out? Not a problem, we worked on adding cool animation effects for the grid and hover, feel free to customize the look of your gallery as you want.

Navigation, Lightbox and Display setting will help you adjust the gallery appearance for your needs.


Displaying your gallery on the website


Let me guess, you want to know how to display the actual gallery on your website, right? Our developers worked on making it as easy as possible for you, there are only two quick steps:

  1. Navigate to the post or page and press the plugin button.

gallery-add-1

  1. In a popup window, you need to choose a gallery you want to add.

gallery-add-2

After that, a shortcode will be added to the editor. For example:

[tm-pg-gallery id="155"][/tm-pg-gallery]

Where id - an identification of the displayed gallery. Display, Filters, and Pagination options are taken from the settings of the selected gallery.

And this is how the gallery will look on the front-end. Your website visitors will be able to filter the pictures by tags or categories and navigate the gallery using the pagination on the bottom.
