Gallery Manager is the most innovative state of the art WordPress Gallery Management tool which enables you to organize image galleries easily in your WordPress backend. Furthermore this gallery plugin adds a beautiful awesome javascript lightbox effect (touch-enabled, responsive, optimized for both, mobile and desktop, web browsers) to all links pointing to an image anywhere on your website. This includes images in your posts, galleries, pages, sidebar widgets and anywhere else on your website.


All links pointing to an image will automatically opened in a responsive lightbox. You do not need to care about any tag attributes or link classes, the plugins takes care about that for you. When using the default [gallery] shortcode the images will get a “previous”, “next” and a slideshow button. The gallery itself uses your themes gallery style and keeps your common identity untouched.

¹ Available in Gallery Manager Pro.

Gallery shortcode

Of course you can use “exclude” and “include” parameters in your [gallery] shortcode like you already know from the traditional gallery shortcode. The Gallery Manager plugin does not touch the mechanic of the default [gallery] shortcode.


You can find the settings page in your Dashboard -> Settings -> Galleries.

Template files

All plugin outputs can be changed via user defined HTML templates. Just put the templates you want to overwrite inside your theme folder (no matter if parent theme or child theme). You can find the default templates in the plugin folder in “templates/”. You can find a list of the available template files in documentation of the pro version. Please do not modify the original templates! You would lose all your modifications when updating the plugin!

Questions and support requests

Please use the support forum on only for this free lite version of the plugin. For the pro version there is a separate support package available. Please do not use the support forum for questions about the pro version or questions about my services! Of course you can hire me for consulting, support, programming and customizations at any time.
