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, explain concepts, or something else – pages without images are barren places.
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 images with videos. This plugin helps you to showcase your work. It also adds different grid types, effects, animations, and a lot more besides.
Modula is available as a free download, or you can choose to upgrade to the Modula PRO. Now, let’s take a look at how to create a new gallery and insert a Modula gallery into a post.
How to add a Modula gallery to a page?
Before we start adding a Modula gallery to a page, we need to 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
Now, because we have our plugin installed and activated, we can move forward and create our new gallery. 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
Next, let’s take a look at the Speed Up feature. It is the perfect one if you have many pictures that need to be optimized and resized for faster website loading.
To enable speed up, go to Speed Up > Lazy Load and enable it.
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.
How to save a 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. These ones you can use to share your gallery within a post o a page.
How to add 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 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 then 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 you don’t have a gallery, you can create one right now by clicking on Create New Gallery using a Preset and following the steps I showed you before.
After you added your gallery, do not forget to save the post as a draft or publish it. There is the option of Preview if you want to see how it looks before publishing it.
