Gallery

Select a gallery of images to display. Gallery+ will automatically scan your WordPress for any Gallery+, NextGen Gallery, as well as standard WP galleries in existing posts and pages.

Note: It will only show galleries with three or more images.

The item Content: Uses images in viewed page/post (min 3 images) wil automatically use a standard WP gallery that is contained in the displayed page or post – if one is found.

This option was added so you can use Gallery+ on single posts.

Being a block, Gallery+ can’t be set in its options to use a different gallery for each post.

The solution is to include a standard WP gallery in your posts, which Gallery+ can detect and display. Using the shortcode method, you can then embed the Gallery+ display of the gallery wherever you want it in your post.

In the cropping examples below, you can see how the beginning point for cropping moves further down with each selection.
This is one you will really have to experiment with to find what suits the particular block and its images the best.

Do not recreate images for this block

By default, this block’s images will be recreated when publishing or refreshing in the Visual Editor. Once you are happy with the images for this block, then check this so they don’t get recreated each time. Default: Off

Note: This has no effect other than saving the time it takes to reload the Visual Editor so is useful if you have many images in your gallery.
