Comma-separated list of file paths

Preset layouts

default Adaptive Bootstrap 5"wall" photos. This is a sample file. Create your own layouts based on it with your own scripts.
bs5-carousel Bootstrap 5 image slider with default settings.
wt-lightbox2 Lightbox2 image gallery with default settings. Requires an installed plugin WT Lightbox 2, which connects Lightbox2 in Joomla 4.
wt-swiper-carousel Swiper.js image gallery with default settings. Requires an installed plugin WT JSwiper, which connects Swiper.js in Joomla 4.

Default layout for tmpl=default

You could have used other plugins earlier that use the same shortcode {gallery}...{/gallery}. In order not to edit all the old articles, you can specify the default output layout for those cases when the tmpl parameter is not specified or it is equal to tmpl=default. Then all the old short codes will be processed by the content plugin with the default layout specified in its settings.

Creating your own image gallery layouts

The output layouts are located in the html plugin content folder - plugins/content/wtcontentimagegallery/tmpl. Copy the file default.php , rename it and embed your HTML layout and javascript. It is advisable to connect files using Web Asset Manager, place the scripts themselves in the media folder of the plug-in, or design them with independent plug-ins, like WT JSWiper.
