Gallery Magic Lite


The Gallery Magic Lite plugin allows you to grab image galleries from other sites and automatically insert them into your WordPress posts and pages. The plugin downloads the original full-sized gallery images from a remote website, upload them to your server, crop the image preview thumbnails, sets a featured image for the post and generates a standard WordPress image gallery.

Use the gallery_magic shortcode to grab an image gallery from a specified webpage and insert into your post. E.g.:

[gallery_magic url="" featured_image="first" link="file"]

Save the post and open it in the browser. It will take a while when you open it for the first time, because the plugin needs to download all images, crop tumbnails etc.

The following parameters are available for the gallery_magic shortcode:

  • url: the source gallery URL;
  • featured_image: “first”, “last”, “random” or leave it empty if you don’t want to generate featured image at all;
  • max_images: max number of images in the gallery (default: all images);
  • cols: number of columns in the gallery (default: 4);
  • size: specify the image size to use for the thumbnail display. Valid values include “thumbnail”, “medium”, “large”, “full” and any other additional image size that was registered with add_image_size().
  • The default value is “thumbnail”. The size of the images for “thumbnail”, “medium” and “large” can be configured in WordPress admin panel under Settings > Media.
  • link: can be “file” (link directly to image file), “none” (no link) or leave it empty if you want to link it to the attachment’s permalink.
