    Hey Tom

    Just out of interest, where can I find information about the updates (this weeks for example) and what each one included.

    Also, I’m having a nightmare choosing a decent gallery (free preferably). Any suggestions on what is simple, with half decent features and work well with GP. Tried a few and no Pagination on most free version (really annoying that), awkward to set up, bad layouts etc. Just don’t seem to be able to find one I am happy with.

    Keep up the good work. Only purchased GP last week and really happy with it so far.

    Hi there,

    You can find info on our updates here: https://generatepress.com/category/development/

    Have you tried NextGen Gallery? Haven’t used many gallery plugins, but that one is the most popular I believe.

    Glad you’re enjoying GP! 🙂

    I’ll give it a go Thanks Tom. (and for the development link).

    Did I read a post somewhere about you was considering adding borders to the content container boxes?

    If not, is there an easy way to add them?

    (don’t ask for much do I) LOL 🙂

    I just realised why I never used NextGen Gallery Tom. It isn’t compatible with latest WP version.

    Looks like the couple of free plugins that did pagination haven’t been updated in quite a while. Found a couple of posts that might help you out with coding pagination for the default WP gallery:

    It’s something you need to create using images in your Media Library. Here’s a good tutorial:

    I can’t do that. I am on 4.3.1 and the gallery option isn’t there mate.

    The gallery option is definitely available in 4.3.1 – it’s what I personally use (I like going with core WP functions) and am using it here on this site on some of our add-on pages.

    That’s great guys. Thank you both for your help.

    I just need to tidy the page header up (play with the layout) and get all my images uploaded.

    I’ve also added the lightbox and installed the cleaner gallery plugin.

    Getting there slowly 🙂

    Any tips on adding borders to content areas on the site ?

    Looks great!

    A borders add-on is next in line 🙂

    For now, this CSS will add a border to the content and widget areas:

    .inside-article,
    .sidebar .widget {
          border: 1px dotted #DDD;
    }

    Thanks Tom

    Does that go in style.css and if so ….. here?

    .separate-containers .inside-article,
    .separate-containers .widget,
    .separate-containers .comments-area,
    .separate-containers .page-header,
    .separate-containers .paging-navigation {
    	padding: 40px;

    You’d be better off not modifying the theme default style.css file. Any changes you put there will be lost when you update the theme. You’d should either use a child theme or a plugin. Check the “Adding CSS” link in Tom’s signature for options.
