galleria for wordpress

Galleria is an awesome slideshow gallery built on top of jquery.
After trying out about 10 different picture slideshow plugins for wordpress I couldn’t find one that would do what exactly what I want. For some reason, none of the plugins I tried was able to display more than one gallery in the same page. I wonder what use scenarios fall into that stupid restriction. Personally I don’t see any point on installing a picture slideshow plugin and use it once, but that’s just me.

So I ended up rolling my own. I googled around and picked galleria out of many javascript slideshow scripts, and wrapped it in a wordpress plugin.

Grab it from github

    Hello,

    for a while I was searching for a plugin like that. But after installation, I’ll get an error by trying to type in the dimenstions or the shortcode into the post. The error message is “Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by …”

    Hey dewe, you cannot set dimensions on the shortcode on the post. You must define the gallery size on the plugin settings instead. This means, all galleries in your blog will have the same size.

    loulou,
    I’ve been meaning to look into such bugs for a while but I’ve been lazy.
    Perhaps that’s not the most polite way to report a bug.

    According on this discussion, that is in fact a known galleria bug that is being mitigated on latest unstable releases.

    Since I first wrote this plugin I came across a handful of issues with galleria. I’m not sure it’s worth the effort of temporarily trying to fix every problem with some provisional duct tape like solution. I might write my own javascript slideshow instead to replace galleria.
    Nut sure about when I will set my mind to do it though.
