Easily create a filterable WordPress gallery in less than 5 minutes

Add a beautiful filterable WordPress gallery to let your visitors easily browse through your images.

Easily let website visitors sort photos in your gallery by adding filters

Depending on the number of images in galleries, it might make sense to allow your website visitors to easily sort through them. With using Modula, this can easily be done using the built-in filter functionality.

First, you’ll need to either create a new gallery or edit an existing one. You should find creating your first gallery using Modula really easy, but if you run into some issues here’s a brief explanation that should clear things up for you. 

  1. To create a new gallery, head to Modula > and click “Add New”.
  2. This will automatically take you to the gallery edit screen so you can start working on your gallery right away.

Next, upload your chosen images to your filterable WordPress gallery…

Time to add those images to your gallery

To do this, click Upload Image Files, Select from Library or simply drag your images into the gallery edit area to upload and insert your images into your gallery.

The final step is to Publish your filterable WordPress gallery so you can copy & paste the shortcode into any post or page where you want it to appear.

Step 4 – Add filters to your gallery

Create the filters you wish to apply to your images in Modula Settings > Filters

To create filters simply use the edit area shown above and click add new filters as required until you’ve added all of the filters that you wish to use for this gallery.

Click the ‘Add New Filter’ button
And then add as many filters as you’d like

Let’s use ‘portrait’, ‘landscape’, and ‘sports’ as an example of three filters. As you can see above, we’ve already created the filters. However, we haven’t assigned them to any images so they’ll still appear empty.

Click the edit icon that appears on your images in your Modula gallery

To assign a filter to an image all you need to do is click the edit icon to the left of the image delete button. Then scroll all the way down to the ‘filters’ section as shown below:

You can add as many filters or no filters to an image. If you do not add a filter to an image then it will only appear when the ‘All’ filter is clicked.

As you can see, now when we click ‘portrait’ on the front-end of our website, Modula will only display the images that have been assigned with the selected filter.

Choose from a selection of custom filter styles

Choosing filter styles with the Modula gallery plugin

It doesn’t stop there. Modula also lets you set custom filter styles for each gallery because the appearance of you filters shouldn’t be boring.

Simply head to your gallery edit page and – as shown above – choose your filter and try them out without leaving the WordPress admin area until you find your favorite. Learn more…
