Create a photo gallery

Viewing: Home > ProPhoto 6 > Photo galleries > Create a photo gallery

ProPhoto galleries can be created and managed in “Galleries > “All Galleries” in the main WordPress admin area. Creating a gallery is very similar to creating a new post or page. Click “Add New” and you’ll see many of the same options in this page.  Add a title, add images, select a style and publish.

Gallery style

The default gallery style here comes from the setting permalink style galleries in “ProPhoto > Customizer (Template group) > Galleries > Gallery styles.” Here you an override that style for this gallery.

But you are never locked into this style.  Each time you insert any gallery you can override with any style you have created in “ProPhoto > Customizer (Design group) > Galleries “. 

Publishing

All the standard WordPress publishing options are available allowing you to password protect, save as a draft, keep as private, and schedule for future publishing.gallery_publish_options

Featured image

Like regular posts/pages, you can feature an image for a gallery. Any time your gallery is included in a grid, this is the image that will be used for the grid thumbnail. It also may be the image used in link previews when sharing your link on social media sites.gallery_featured_img
