- User Submitted Image Gallery – Final Overview
We covered a lot of information in the User Submitted Image Galleries tutorial series, everything from registering our post types and custom taxonomies to performing advanced queries; from uploading images on the front end to configuring the backend; from outputting our images in a gallery to displaying additional images by the same user. There were a lot of techniques and methods demonstrated (some more advanced than others), and they don’t just apply to image galleries, but WordPress plugin development in general. I would now like to do a quick overview on everything we covered, including some of the things we did not cover in this series.
The primary goal of this tutorial series was to provide a base infrastructure that you will need to build your own user submitted image gallery, similar to what I built for CG Cookie. The final result of this plugin is not ready to be installed and used as is. As I discuss in-depth in the video, there are a lot of aspects of the plugin that need to developed further before this can be considered a “ready for mass distribution” plugin.
To help demonstrate some of the things we have built in this series, check out the screenshots below. Keep in mind that we did not ever focus on styling our galleries. We were only focused on functionality.
I hope you have enjoyed this series and even if you have not fully read through every part, I do hope that you have found at least one section of the series very helpful, since therehere were a lot of advanced techniques covered in the series.
The complete plugin we have created can be downloaded below (for premium subscribers).If you would like to gain complete access to this series, you can sign up here for just $6 per month!
