The idea behind this plugin:

Can you imagine that there’s no categories and all posts has to be manually organized? and every time you add new post you’ll also have to add it manually to your blog and other page(s) otherwise it won’t show up? sounds ridicules isn’t it but why we keep doing this with the image galleries?

Every time you add new image to the media library it also has to be added to all galleries where you want to display it. Creating sortable galleries is even more difficult. Because media files doesn’t have categories images in the galleries has to be manually organized.

With this revolutionary plugin you can setup gallery on any page and it will work without further modifications, all new images will be added automatically to it. We make it possible by adding categories to the media library.

Your galleries will be runtime sortable and you can decide what image categories to display in each gallery. Just keep adding images and categorize them same way you doing with normal wordpress posts.

Understanding Media Categories

Go Gallery enables Categories to Media Library Images. All images you want to display with Go Gallery has to be categorized. You will notice that Media Library now has one more column to display Media Category for each image.

Go Gallery will display images by their Categories. Categorizing images is a simple and straight-forward procedure and it is similar to categorizing your post.

You can add more Media Categories directly in Image Edit or in Media Categories
