Pages SuperGallery


Recommended Posts

By default, Pages databases work best for articles. This template sets puts the Record Image field front and center. As a result, Pages categories can now be turned into beautiful & minimalistic galleries, where each record represents one image (with a title and description). All Pages functionalities like comments, ratings, reviews and custom fields are also available. 

The original idea was to create a template set for online art exhibitions, but the template set has a wide range of possible uses. Any kind of content centered around images can be improved by this plugin: How-to guides using images. A travel blog. A designer’s portfolio …  
This product is not meant to replace the Gallery app. It’s a way to create galleries as part of the editorial content on your website. 

The record display view has 3 possible layouts which can be applied automatically: portrait image, landscape image and “no image”. The latter creates a center column with content from the editor field, which can be used for an introduction, chapter dividers and so on. 

A bonus feature is limiting the number entries guests can view (starting from the first record in a category). This can be used to encourage guests to register.

Notes: 

  • The templates can be used for multiple Pages databases, but the plugin settings will apply to all databases at once. 
  • The ordering comes from the Pages database ordering settings, as with any Pages database. There is no drag-and-drop ordering of the images. For ordering, a stock field like record ID or title can be used or a custom ordering field can be created. However, the ordering field needs to contain unique values. Fields like “rating” or “views” cannot be used.
