Alright so after installing this plugin, go and create a new blog post, page, etc. When you open up the editor, you should see a gallery option in the block dropdown. This is how it look like:
So basically it has 3 modes:
Arranges the images as a horizontally sliding carousel.
Arranges the images as a masonry layout
The most basic mode. It just stacks the images on top of each other in this mode. Keep in mind that this mode stretches the images to full browser width on the the twenty nineteen theme. On other themes, it may look quite different.
Other than that. After selecting the mode, just supply some images to get started and Block Gallery will render a beautiful gallery based on the mode you picked.
You can always change from one mode to another quite easily from the Block Gallery menu. To do so, click on the gallery and a menu will open up on top of the block.
From here, you can:
- Change mode
- Expanding block to full browser width
- Add filters
- Change Gallery settings. This includes many more mode specific options for customizing the gallery.
And much more. See the gallery settings options for more in-depth customizations.
