Gallifrey WordPress Plugin

Gallifrey is an image gallery WordPress plugin based on the Galleriffic jQuery plugin. It will replace the standard wordpress gallery when you activate it. You don’t have to change the code of all the earlier galleries.

Download Gallifrey Image Gallery WordPress Plugin

Gallifrey Demo


  • Smart image preloading after the page is loaded
  • Thumbnail navigation
  • Support for bookmark-friendly URLs per-image
  • Slideshow (with optional auto-updating url bookmarks)
  • Events that allow for adding your own custom transition effects
  • Graceful degradation when javascript is not available
  • Same shortcode as WordPress Gallery – so previous galleries will be updated as well


  • Download the zipped file.
  • Extract and upload the contents of the folder to /wp-contents/plugins/ folder
  • Enable the plugin from WordPress admin area
  • Add galleries into your post using the normal method

If you have any issues with the plugin, post a thread at the Gallifrey Plugin Forum.

    There any easy way of sorting (or organize) the order of photos?
