Deeplinking Addon

The Deeplinking Addon for Envira Gallery allows you directly link to any lightbox image with a unique URL.  These URLs can not only be indexed for SEO but can also directly display the chosen image in the lightbox view. This tutorial will walk you through the steps on how to create a Deeplinking gallery for Envira.

Please follow our instructions on how to install and activate addons.

In this instance, you’ll be activating the Envira Deeplinking Addon.

Step 1 – Create or edit your gallery

Your first step is to create a new gallery or edit an existing one. You can follow along with our documentation for creating your first gallery.

Step 2 – Enable Deeplinking on your gallery

Navigate to the Lightbox tab and scroll towards the bottom. Select the checkbox to Enable Deeplinking.

From the lightbox tab, select to Enable Deeplinking on your gallery

Step 3 – Publish or Update your gallery

Finally, click Publish or Update on your gallery to save the changes.

You can now view your new gallery and select any image to open the lightbox. You’ll then see the URL in the address bar changes with each image.

If you copy your unique URL then paste it into a new browser window, you’ll see the same image immediately load in the lightbox view.

See the demo!
