Why use Modula to add a gallery to a page in WordPress?
Images are an essential ingredient in any website. Whether that’s to break up the text, add context, or explain concepts. Visitors could leave your website in a heartbeat; imagery can keep them interested and make them stay for a while!
But why choose Modula? Modula is a user-friendly and mobile responsive plugin that comes with powerful features. You can password-protect your work, zoom your images to allow website visitors to see your masterpieces in more detail, add a watermark, and even mix photos with videos.
Modula is available as a free download, or you can upgrade to Modula PRO for even more features! Now, let’s look at how to create a new gallery and insert a Modula gallery into a post/page.
How to add a Modula gallery to a page?
Before adding a Modula gallery to a page, we must install and activate the plugin. The following process will be the same for any free WordPress plugin.
Install and activate Modula
To install and activate Modula, go to WordPress Dashboard > Plugins > Add New.
A new page with available WordPress plugins will appear in a few seconds. In the right search bar in the upper corner, type Modula. When you see it, click on Install Now.
Next, click on the Activate button. If you do not activate the plugin, it won’t work!
Create a new gallery
We can now create our new gallery as Modula is installed and activated. How do we create a new gallery? Go to Modula > Galleries > Add New.
Continue to add a title and upload images to your gallery. Use the Upload images button to add pictures to your gallery, and then use the drag-and-drop builder to organize your photos as you, please.
Customize your gallery
First, there are four different gallery types to choose from: creative, custom, slider, and masonry (columns). I’ve selected the custom grid, but you can choose whatever you want.
Next, let’s take a look at the Speed Up feature. Perfect if you have many pictures that need to be optimized and resized for faster website loading.
Go to Speed Up > Lazy Load and enable it to enable speed up.
Now I want to add some social media icons. You can choose what social media icons you want to display and change the color of the icons, the size, and the gutter.
What does the gutter mean? It means the distance between the icons.
So how do you save your photo gallery? After you edit and style your gallery the way you like, save it by clicking on the Save Gallery button.
Modula will automatically generate three shortcodes. You can use these shortcodes to share your gallery within a post or a page.
How to add a gallery shortcode to a WordPress page/post?
Now that we have our gallery created, how can we add a Modula gallery to a page?
We’ve already talked about gallery shortcodes. To add a gallery to a WordPress post, we need to copy the shortcode and paste it into the WordPress page/post.
First, press the “+” icon and search for the Modula Gallery block.
You can choose to display the gallery you want from the drop-down list.
If you didn’t follow the steps and need a gallery, you could create one by clicking on Create New Gallery using a Preset and following the steps I showed you above.
After you’ve added your gallery, remember to save the post as a draft or publish it. If you’d like to see what the post/page looks like before publishing, you can click on Preview. Once you’re happy with it, hit publish!
