Digital Photography Tips, Tutorials and Resources
Do you want to create a unique URL for your image gallery? You may want to share your photos directly with your clients, friends and family. In this tutorial, we will share how to create a unique page URL for your WordPress gallery.
Photographers commonly need to add multiple photo galleries to a single blog post or page. The problem is, if you want to share one individual image gallery with someone, you’ll have to share the link to the entire post/page with all the other irrelevant WordPress galleries.
By default, WordPress doesn’t allow you to create a unique page URL for your image gallery. You need to use a plugin like Envira Gallery that creates standalone URLs for each photo gallery on your site.
To create the unique page URL for your WordPress gallery, you’ll need to follow these 3 steps:
- Step 1. Install and activate Envira Gallery plugin
- Step 2. Create a new image gallery using Envira
- Step 3. Publish your gallery to get the unique URL
