- Step 3. Enable Deeplinking
We’ve created a video that can help you activate deeplinking. If you don’t want to watch the video walkthrough, continue reading the steps below.
Step 1. Download Envira Gallery
First you should install Envira Gallery. Without a plugin, WordPress doesn’t support this sort of functionality for galleries, so you’ll need a plugin like Envira. Don’t worry; our installation guide makes it easy to get the plugin set up! Just remember, you need the Pro license or better to enable gallery deeplinking. Now follow our guide on how to verify your license so you can turn on deeplinking.
Step 2. Install and Activate the Deeplinking Addon
Next, you need to install and activate the Deeplinking addon. Go to Envira Gallery » Addons and find Deeplinking in the list of available addons. Activate it!
You are now ready to enable deeplinking for your gallery.
Step 3. Enable Deeplinking
Choose the Envira Gallery that you want to have deeplinking enabled on and go to the Lightbox tab. Scroll to the bottom and you will see Enable Deeplinking; check that box.
With that checked, all that is left is for you to Publish or Update your slider. Then add your gallery to a post or page if you have not yet done so. Finally, check out your gallery’s new links!
Great work! You just created a deeplinking WordPress gallery using Envira Gallery!
