Easy Photo Album


This plugin enables you to create and manage photo albums, just like posts.
You don’t have to change any theme files, the album displays nice right away.
Photo’s can be viewed in a Lightbox.
The albums are responsive and you can choose how may columns of images you want.
The Lightbox displays the most large size possible, resized to the current screen size.
You can manage the order of the photo’s (very easy with drag and drop) and tell your story in photo’s!
You can now also insert your album in a post or page.

So go ahead, and try it out!

Q: Where can I find the settings for this plugin?

A: You can find the settings under Settings > Easy Photo Album.

Q: Where can I find information about the current version?

A: Read the about page by visiting the plugins page of your WordPress installation and then click on the “About” link below Easy Photo Album.

Q: I want to add a photo album to the menu. Where can I select the photo albums?

A: You have to check Photo Albums in the Screen options box under Appearance > Menus

Q: Can I add a description to a photo album?

A: No, you can’t. What you can do is include your album in a post or page with the epa-album shortcode. Look for the button with the Easy Photo Album icon in the editor.

Q: What is the syntax of the EPA shortcode?

A: Syntax: [epa-album id="123" show_title="true" display="full"]

  • Here is 123 the id of the photo album (you can get the id by editing an album and check the url for edit.php?post=123)
  • show_title can be true or false.
  • display can be full or excerpt.
Q: How can I display all the photo albums?

A: When you have enabled permalinks: You can display the photo album archive by visiting (where is your WordPress home URL).

When you have NOT enabled permalinks: You can display the photo album archive by visiting (where is your WordPress home URL).

Q: The images are small; there is much more space, so how do I display larger images?

A: The image size is default thumbnail. So choose an other image size (medium perhaps?) and it should display better. If not, you need to regenerate the images. (for example with this plugin )

Q: Are there any plugins incompatible with Easy Photo Album?

A: So far, there are no reported issues caused by an other plugin. A small notice when you use WP User Frontend: make sure the setting Show Attachments (under the Others tab) unchecked.

This is a simple plugin which is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately it is not working anymore since WordPress 4.5. There is no possibility to add pictures to your album. So it’s more or less useless at the moment. Hope this will be fixed, because the plugin itself is great.
