Thus … the Shiba WordPress Gallery Plugin was born.
The Shiba Gallery Plugin operates on the WordPress gallery shortcode, so it will integrate seamlessly with the existing WordPress gallery system. In addition, it allows you to specify a new type attribute. For example –
Here is the resulting gallery.
The power of the Shiba Gallery Plugin is that it allows you to use a variety of gallery styles not just within the same blog, but within the same blog page. You can include as many galleries as you want and display them in the style that you want simply by specifying type in your gallery shortcode.
Simple but Powerful
Here is another example gallery rendered using Smooth Gallery.
[gallery id="10" type="smoothgallery"]
It is as simple as that.
And if you decide to deactivate the plugin, your gallery codes will still work with other WordPress gallery based plugins.
If you do not specify a type, the system will just default to Smooth Gallery. You can also change the default gallery by defining the constant SHIBA_GALLERY_DEFAULT in your theme functions.php file.
For example –
The same gallery rendered using Lytebox.
