Kino Gallery plugin

WARNING: This plugin is out of date! Use at your own risk and consider backing up your website first.

Finally it’s here. We’ve been working on and off on the Kino Gallery for a few years, and we’re now happy to release a stable version to the WordPress community.

The Kino Gallery enables you to easily setup a thumbnail gallery that sits in the sidebar. When a thumbnail is clicked the main image will be loaded up into the main column of the website. Titles and fully featured descriptions can be added to these image.

The Kino Gallery is a free to use – you can download the plugin here.

Installation

  1. Upload the plugin folder, kino-gallery, to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Alternatively, simply run a search for Kino Gallery in the Plugins section and follow onscreen installation instructions.

Once installed you need to configure the plugin on your site:

  1. Drag the Kino Gallery widget into the sidebar and give it a name.
  2. In Settings>Kino Gallery you can change; Max width of full size image, Thumbnail size, Thumbnail CSS (where you can apply custom styling), Opacity of thumbnails, Fade speed of thumbnails
  3. Add new images to the sidebar by going to Kino Gallery>Add New. Note that you just need the URL of the large image here as the plugin will resize the thumbnail according to the settings.
  4. You can edit the gallery through Kino Gallery>Kino Gallery

Still trying to work out all the kinks in getting this to work, but want to say Thanks SO much for creating this plugin. It is exactly what I’ve been looking all over for as my site moves to WP and I try to replicate the old hand-coded html tables thumbnail grid I’ve been using. So far I’m just getting a text links in the sidebar instead of a thumbnails, so a bit of work left to figure out all the right settings. Thanks again.

Hi Seth,
I like your kino gallery plugin and I am trying to get it working in my website. Unfortunately I do not manage to get the picture/thumbnail in the sidebar. I only got a word (a name in this case) and not the thumbnail of the picture in the sidebar widget. What should I do to get it visible? Can you help? See www. zwaluwvfcd1.net
Kind regards, Martijn

Hi Martijn. My first suggestion would be to diassble your other plugins one by one and see if the gallery is working. Usually any problem is cuased by a CSS styling conflict with other other plugins.
