Album Gallery [AGAL] Shortcode

The New Album Gallery (NAG) shortcode adds a customizable photo gallery to a WordPress post. It enqueues necessary JavaScript and CSS files for the gallery’s functionality and appearance. This shortcode activates the nag_album_gallery_shortcode function, which generates the gallery’s HTML output. It uses jQuery and other scripts for smooth navigation. Additionally, it uses PhotoBox Lightbox for image pop-ups. For styling, it imports various CSS files, including Bootstrap and Animate.css. After setting up the scripts and styles, the function requires the ‘album-gallery-output.php’ file to generate the gallery’s HTML. The function uses output buffering to capture and return the generated HTML, ensuring it’s properly inserted into the post content.

Shortcode: [AGAL]

Examples and Usage

Basic example – Utilizing the shortcode to display an album gallery with a specific post ID.

[AGAL post_id=3 /]

Advanced examples

Using the shortcode to display an album gallery with multiple post IDs. The gallery will load images from multiple posts.

[AGAL post_id="3,5,8" /]

Using the shortcode to display an album gallery with a specific post ID and applying a specific CSS class to the gallery for custom styling.

[AGAL post_id=3 class="my-custom-class" /]

Please note, the actual functionality of these shortcode examples depends on how the ‘nag_album_gallery_shortcode’ function is defined and how it handles the ‘post_id’ and ‘class’ attributes. If the function doesn’t support these attributes, the shortcode examples will not work as expected.
