Step 1: Add Envira Categories to Galleries
Let’s start by adding Envira categories to galleries. We’ll add these galleries to a filterable album in the next step. Envira will use these categories as tags that filter the album.
Create a new gallery or open an existing gallery’s edit page.
Then, in the Envira Categories box, select the categories that you want to add to the gallery. If you’d like to add a new category, click the + Add New Category link to add new Envira categories. Be sure to click the gallery’s Update or Publish button.
You’ll need to add Envira categories to all of the galleries that you want to include in your filterable album.
Step 2: Add the Galleries to a Filterable Album
Next, we’ll create a new album. You can learn more about creating Envira albums here.
Once a new album is created, find and select galleries that you want to add to your filterable album. Be sure that the galleries that you select have categories. Then click on the Add Selected Galleries to Album button.
Step 3: Enable Tag Filtering
Finally, click on the album’s Tags tab.
Then click the Enable Tag Filtering? checkbox.
Click the Update or Publish button to save and publish your album. Add your album to a post or page, then view to see tag filtering in action!
Congratulations! You’ve successfully created a filterable album. If you’d like to learn more about creating filterable galleries, check out the Tags Addon.
