Documentation for version: 2.5.0
A plugin for creating WordPress galleries from Google Drive folders. The plugin works with subfolders, can use team drives and makes everything accessible with a simple user interface. You can download the plugin from https://wordpress.org/plugins/skaut-google-drive-gallery.
This step is described on a separate page.
After getting a Google app and configuring it (second step), you need to configure the root path of the plugin. Google Drive gallery will never show anything outside this directory. That means that everything you want to display on your web page needs to be in this folder or any of its subfolders.
Root directory settings can be found on your webpage in the „Google Drive gallery → Basic options“ tab (put /wp-admin/admin.php?page=sgdg_basic at the end of your webpage url). Choose the desired root directory by traversing the directory tree and press „Save Changes“ when the intended folder is open. After saving, you should see the contents of your root directory.
To add a gallery to your webpage create a new page as you normally would. In the editor, press the „Google Drive gallery button“. Select the folder you want to use as the gallery and press „Insert“. Save the page and the gallery should be displayed in the page.
Advanced options are described on a separate page.
If you have larger galleries, you can sometimes encounter an error saying you've gone over the quota. This is an unfortunate limitation by Google where there can only be so many requests at once.
