by Waseem Abbas on Jul 8, 2016

Do you want to add default settings to your WordPress galleries? When you use a lot of image galleries, you can save a ton of time by creating some default settings. In this article, we will share how to setup default WordPress gallery settings to save time.

By default, WordPress image galleries don’t have the feature to setup default settings. Since many of you requested it, we added this feature to Envira Gallery.

First thing you need to do is install and activate the Envira Gallery WordPress plugin.

Once the plugin is activated, you are ready to setup the default WordPress gallery settings.

Setting Up Default WordPress Gallery Settings

You’ll need Envira’s Defaults Addon to add the default settings for your WordPress image gallery.

To access this addon, you must have Envira Pro or Ultimate license.

Simply go to Envira Gallery ยป Addons from your WordPress backend to install and activate the Defaults Addon.

Next, go ahead to Envira Gallery. You will see the Envira Default Settings gallery in the list of your image galleries. You should click on the edit option.

Edit Default Gallery Settings

This Default Settings gallery is similar to a typical Envira gallery. You should go to Config settings and adjust your default settings.

Now, all of the new image galleries you create will use these settings. However, you can always customize each individua image gallery with custom code in the shortcodes and template tags.
