For the first method in this guide, we will be using the default WordPress gallery block. Start by creating the post or page you would want to have it appear on and click the add block button and select gallery to add it in your content area.

You can now select the images you want to be included, you can use shift+click to select multiple files to upload at once. You’ll have the options to reorder and caption each of the images should you want or even add additional images. The standard gallery widget even includes a way to change how many images are in each column and where the gallery links to.

Should you want more control over the gallery, you would want to install and activate the Envira Gallery plugin found here:

Create a new gallery, name it whatever you like, and add your images to the gallery. The plugin allows you to link individual images in the gallery to specific URLs.

The same as the default gallery you can decide how many columns to use or have the column count be determined by the plugin. Envira gallery gives you the additional power to lazy load the images, that way the images are not loaded until your visitor scrolls down to the images which can improve loading speed on your site.

  1. Amazing 😍 thanks so much

  2. I'm in love with the female voice speaking in this video. I could listen to her all day and all night….Such a beautiful voice.

  3. Hi, how could I create an image gallery of different size images rather than have same size in a row… i.e. let’s say I wanted to create a grid according to the amount of pixels on screen and I wanted a 100px X 50px image … and another image 200px X 300px and so on until I fill the screen with images which in this case would basically criss cross each other… in other words none of these images would be aligned to another… I’d very much appreciate your help on this…. thank you… p.s I’d imagine there’s a plug-in grid out by now to do this or maybe a set of ready made css code?

  4. I use the old wordpress style of post editor, I don't have a + button is there a plugin?
