Awesome Media Gallery Wordpress Plugin

Awesome Media Gallery Wordpress Plugin

This plugin will give your WP members the power to share collections of photos, images, videos, and songs with one another. It has hundreds of features that can help you customize everything from the media grid layout to the member profile pages.

This version is a Wordpress Plugin that can be easily installed on any Wordpress Site! For the stand-alone PHP version, click here.

Why the Low Rating?

In version 1, this plugin helped anyone get AMG up and running on their Wordpress site, yet site admins had to switch between WP-Admin and the Mokoala CMS to manage AMG, so some people gave low ratings. But now in version 2 the AMG admin panel is within WP-Admin. Also in version 2, I have made a few important changes to the way members authenticate with a Wordpress site. Included is a plugin called ‘oAuth Provider’, which enables your WP members to sign into AMG using their existing WP accounts. You can now easily set up a paywall to access AMG if you configure your WP site with the right payment plugin. With this new version, you can also auto-post from AMG to WP, which can help build your site content. If you enjoy this updated plugin please REVIEW IT and help it get a better rating on Code Canyon! I’ve also added 100s of new features that cannot be found elsewhere – it’s the most advanced WP media grid plugin on CC – so please enjoy, thank you!

  • AMG Settings Panel now within WP-Admin
  • WP Users can now easily authenticate with AMG
  • Easily setup up a user payment system between AMG and WP
  • Seamless transition between WP and AMG for users
  • AMG media can also be auto-posted to WP
