Q: Can I set up the URL format for the link?
A: We added a WordPress filter
envira_whitelabel_envira_deeplinking_slug that should override the default
enviragallery slug and make possible custom URLs. A document devoted to this is coming soon.
Q: Will this work for albums too?
A: Currently deeplinking will only work with Envira galleries.
