    How will video’s look like in the gallery?

    Is there an inline video function or is it only playing in a lightbox?

    • gt3themes Reply

      It is playing in the lightbox, because there is no way to load the video instead of the thumb if we use for example circle thumbnails.

    Houston, we’ve had a problem… ^^

    Can you help me? >>

      It looks like your theme has a fixed page height which causes the issues.

    Hi. I use your WordPress Oyster theme. Once activated this plugin, all the galleries created previously with oyster stop working. Could you advise please?

    • gt3themes Reply

      Hello Andrea!
      Do you use the latest plugin version 1.1 ? If yes, please provide your wp-admin details and we will take a look. There shouldn’t be any problem because gallery plugin works only with WordPress default gallery functionality. You can send your site credentials to help at gt3themes dot com. Thanks

      • Andrea Rossi Reply

        Hi. Yes, i have version 1.1 and the issue is still going on. If activate plugin, all the gallery I created under Oyster theme give me this error: “Internal Server Error”

        • Andrea Rossi

          This is one of the galleries with the plugin deactivated

          • gt3themes

            Can you please provide us with your email and we will send you the updated version. We could not replicate this issue on our end.
            Anyway, it would be great to have it tested on your end.

          • gt3themes

            The issue has been resolved, please update the plugin, the latest version is available at

    Nice plugin!
    Is there a way to have a “Download image” button?
    Novice user, dont know the “save image as” from right mouse click.

    • gt3themes Reply

      Hello! Most of the photographers ask to add some protections functionality. Anyway we will consider your request.

    Hi! It’s a very good plugin, but I can’t embed a Youtube or Vimeo video, isn’t it?

    • gt3themes Reply

      Hi there! No, you can. It supports Youtube and Vimeo. Thanks

      • Miguel Sanchez Reply

        Hi again! How do I do it? Thanks in advance.

        • gt3themes

          If you click the image, you will see the field for the video URL

    Hi, It seems like a very nice gallery plugin. I have a problem though. The gallery page with thumbnails open fine, I have tested several layouts. However, when I click any thumbnail image the image does not open, the screen becomes black. I have tried several times with new galleries. I have also tested different themes with the same result. I have WP 4.7.1 Any ideas?

    • gt3themes Reply

      Its really strange because the tested plugin works fine. Any link to your website with the gallery?

      • Per Karlsson Reply

        Very early work on a site, don’t want to share public yet, can I send link via mail?

            OK, I just did. Thanks

    When I link the images to the attachement page, the image on the attachement page is enlarged to much, so all the sharpness is gone. Is there a way to change that size ?

    Hi… what are the options for customizing a gallery with shortcodes?

    • GT3 Team Reply

      Unfortunately there is no such an option.

    The colors of the photos in my gallery are changed, is this normal?
    But in the swipebox, the colors are good (real).

      Hi there!
      Could you please provide more information, link to the page, screenshot of the settings etc.

    Hi there!
    I really like your plugin, but the lightbox takes really long time to load up on mobile devices, if theres many images in the gallery. I tried opening the gallery on both an android 7.1.1 device and an Iphone 7.
    This page of my webpage contains many photos. It’s really slow:
    This page does not contain many photos:
    Try both pages on a mobile device

    • GT3 Team Reply

      Everything works like a charm. Please note that the loading speed depends on your server and the internet connection on your mobile phone.

    You have the best image and video Gallery plugin
    But why it’s only possible to play video from YouTube. This plugin is practically useless for me because youtube is filtered in my country .
    If possible playing video from site files will be great.

    • GT3 Team Reply

      We will take your request into consideration.

    Hi! I Cannot figure out how to use the lightbox. If I click on a image it is always loaded as link to the picture. Do I need to install lightbox somehow? Thanks for help.

  16. Sabine Reply

    Hej Everyone,
    is it possible to change the “background” / Lightbox-colour from the transparent black to transparent white?
    Thanks in advance and thanks for the great plugin

    • GT3 Team Reply

      Yes, it’s possible to do that as a custom solution.

  17. Tim Look Reply

    Is linking a video from YouTube or Vimeo the only option for creating a video gallery?
    I do not want to use YouTube or 3rd party services away from my website to play videos.
    Having to use a restrictive site like youtube or vimeo restricts the freedom and functionality I expect to have from owning my own website and paying for all these features. Is this common for GT3 themes? If so, I will begin looking for other solutions from other developers.

    • GT3 Team Reply

      Hi there!
      We are going to release a PRO version of this plugin which includes a lot of new features as well as option to use self-hosted videos.

      Hi there!
      There was a glitch while uploading the plugin to WordPress org. Please download the latest version

    OK. Finally installed!
    But… can’t figure it out how to make videos to work. :-/

      Nice to hear that. Please send us an email using the contact form on our website and we will guide you on how to do that 🙂

  20. Roosevelt Goldenberg Reply

    Still trying…
    I miss the plugin’s documentation.
    Where can i find it?

    • GT3 Team Reply

      The plugin usage is very simple, it even does not require the documentation. With the PRO version release, we will add the documentation to our website. To add the video, simply add video URL (youtube or vimeo)

    Hello, I really like the plug-in, but my client is not happy with how the videos open. For instance, when you click on the gallery thumbnail, can it go directly to playing that video with the larger screen. As it is now, you press on it and it goes to a larger screen and then you have to press play again. Also when you want to exit you have to stop the video before you can press the x to close out… can we have the close button appear when you are watching the video so you can go directly to the page before it. In summary, is there a way to reduce having to click through two more links (three total) before you can actually play the video, and is there a way to have the “X” to close appear when you are watching the video? I hope there is a resolution. If not, I might have to change plugins to satisfy my client. 🙁

    • GT3 Team Reply

      Hi there! The PRO version has an option to change the video size, you can test it here

      • Chris Reply

        Thank you for your response. I guess I needed to clarify my question. I don’t have any issue with the video size. Can the video play after you click the gallery thumbnail, instead of having to click the image through two more screens before the video actually plays. My next issue was with the close button. Is there a way to make the “X” appear when the video is playing?…so you don’t have to stop the video and then close?

    Hello, I would like to use the Ver. plugin on the Oyster theme for the video gallery I found a problem in inserting the index image, the plugin tells me that it only accepts links from youtube and vimeo and not from my media gallery site.

    Hi there!
    I’m trying to embed Vimeo video’s in the gallery, but it doesn’t work.
    The video won’t play when I click on it in the gallery, it just opens the Lightbox, where also, it doesn’t play. How does this work?
