The ‘EasyGallery’ shortcode is a part of the wp-easy-gallery plugin. It enables users to generate a gallery by calling the ‘createEasyGallery’ function. The shortcode takes two parameters: ‘id’ and ‘key’, both default to ‘-1’. This function returns a gallery based on the provided ‘id’ and ‘key’.

Here is a list of all possible EasyGallery shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • id – A unique identifier for the gallery
  • key – A specific key to access the gallery

Examples and Usage

Basic example – The following shortcode displays the EasyGallery by referencing the gallery ID.

Advanced examples
