How can the extension be installed?
After you have bought Modula Advanced Shortcode (or if it came with a package), you will receive an account on the email address that is automatically generated on wp-modula.com.
With this account you can easily log in to the Modula website, after which you can easily access: https://wp-modula.com/my-account/, click on View details and Download, and you will be redirected to a page with the Modula extensions that you can download with a single click.
If you are using the browser Safari on a Mac, when you download the zip file it extracts the file from the archive directly to your computer (you might only see the file folder with the plugin’s files in it, instead of the zip). If that is the case, then try and download the zip from your account using a different browser, or check your Trash, as the zip file should be there. To see how to prevent Safari from unzipping files please follow this tutorial.
To install and activate the plugin, go to your WordPress dashboard, and follow the steps:
Go to your dashboard > Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin > select the .zip file you downloaded from the wp-modula.com website. After this, click on the ‘Install Now‘ button, and wait for the file to load. Lastly, press the ‘Activate‘ button to get it done.
If you need help uploading the extension to your WordPress site please follow this tutorial here. You will need to watch ‘Method 2: Upload Plugin‘ timestamp 1:24.
After you do this you will be able to use the shortcodes below.
Modula Advanced Shortcodes
If you create a large number of galleries using the Modula WordPress Gallery plugin, creating new pages for every gallery you create can be time-consuming.
With the Modula Advanced Shortcode extension, you can easily dynamically link to specific galleries without creating pages for them by using URLs with query strings.
Doing this would require you to insert the following shortcode onto one of your pages:
Below is explained a bit more in detail how to use this extension and the shortcodes.
You first need to create a new page (WP admin dashboard > Pages > add new) and in it enter this shortcode: [modula_all_galleries]
This shortcode will display on that page all galleries.
If you then single out a certain gallery you will need to first go to Modula > Settings > Advanced shortcode > and set it up like this:
Then go to Modula > Galleries > choose the gallery you want to display > and copy its ID (only the number), in the example below you will copy only 8380
And then to create a link for that gallery you will need to go to the page you previously created containing all images, for example: https://yourdomain.com/all-galleries and add the gallery’s link to that link.
Like so: https://yourdomain.com/all-galleries/?gallery_id=8380
And it will display only that gallery. If you have any questions about the information in this help article, feel free to reach out to us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
