Go Gallery Tags


This plugin has been created to display beautiful and functional grid galleries with minimum configuration effort and without slowing down your page load.

Go Gallery Tags is a powerful responsive and filterable grid gallery wordpress plugin. You can change spacing, frames, colors, etc. by simply adjusting settings directly in shortcodes. Unlimited number of galleries with different settings can be used on any page or in posts.

Go Gallery Tags is optimized for speed. Configuration is fast and simple, everything can be done just by putting gallery shortcode(s) to the page.

Go Gallery Tags enables Tags in media images and adds filter menu to each gallery for easy and beautiful sorting.

The idea behind this plugin:

Have you ever been frustrated by the fact that WordPress doesn’t let you assign tags to your media and images?

Every time you add a new image to the media library it must also be added to all galleries where you want to display it. Making sortable galleries is even harder. Because media files have no tags images in the galleries must be organized manually.

Imagine being able to create dynamic galleries of images that can be grouped by specific tag and that can be run-time filterable, how cool is that!

With this revolutionary plug-in you can set the gallery on any page and it works without further adjustments, all new images are added to it automatically. We make it possible by enabling tags in the media library.

Galleries can be sorted at run-time and you can decide which image tags to display in each gallery. Continue to add images them in the same way as with normal WordPress messages, Go Gallery will do the rest.
