Using WordPress as a CSS gallery

Although CSS galleries showcasing beautiful designs are nothing new, using WordPress to power your CSS gallery is picking up steam. Take CSSRemix.com for example, one of many CSS galleries powered by WordPress, although it would be time-consuming to duplicate all of CSSRemix’s features, it isn’t hard to imitate the basic structure.

  • First, you need to know how to use custom fields.
  • Second, download Lester Chan’s WP-PostRatings plugin, install, and integrate it. This plugin isn’t necessary, but people like to rate stuff so let them rate.
  • Third, decide how many custom field keys and values you’ll use for each featured-site or each entry. For examples: URL (key) = https://wpdesigner.com (value), url_img (key) = wpdesigner_screenshot.png (value). The number of custom field keys and values per site or entry equal the amount of work you have cut out for you.

Here’s an example of how to implement the outline above:

<?php the_title(); ?>
<a href=”value of url”><img src=”value of url_img” alt=”<?php the_title(); ?>” /></a>

After you’ve gotten everything set up, outsource the job of indexing thousands and thousands of beautiful designs. Then, there you’ll have it, a CSS gallery powered by WordPress.
