Primer: WordPress photo gallery without a plugin

Otto has created a very thorough primer to create a WordPress photo gallery without a plugin. He walks you through understanding pictures and galleries, creating and modifying an image template, and tweaking image and thumbnail sizes.

He reminds us:

You don’t really need plugins to create photo galleries. WordPress has a huge amount of gallery functionality built right in. You just need to make your theme smarter in order to take advantage of it.

    • Hi Angie –

      Thanks for pointing that out.

      The beauty and power of a project such as WordPress is that you can get directly involved and contribute by highlighting bugs so that the developers can make those improvements.

      I ping’d one of the core developers after seeing your comment, and they’ve now commented on the ticket relating to this issue. You can follow along and voice your opinion here: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/17485
