Do you want to create a responsive slider for your Envira Gallery? Soliloquy provides an easier way to create a slider from your gallery images. In this tutorial, we will show you how to create a responsive slider for Envira Gallery in WordPress.

In order to use galleries created by other plugins, you will need the Dynamic Addon available with the Developer plan or higher.  The Dynamic addon will help you showcase:

  • Blog posts
  • Custom post types (like testimonials)
  • Envira and NextGen Galleries

Creating Slider for Envira Gallery

First, you need to install and activate the Soliloquy Slider plugin. For more details, see this step by step guide on how to install a plugin in WordPress.

Before you can install the Dynamic addon, make sure your license is verified before you proceed.  Go to Soliloquy » Settings to verify your license key.

Next, you also need to install and activate the Envira Gallery plugin.

Additionally, we’ll need an Envira Gallery for this example.  For more support, see this step by step guide on creating your first Envira Gallery. Once your image gallery is ready you can proceed to create a slider.

Next, go to a post or page to insert your Soliloquy slider. Then add the following shortcode:

[soliloquy_dynamic id="envira-2" ]

NOTE: Replace 2 with the ID of the specific Envira gallery you want to populate the dynamic slider from.

You can find your gallery ID by going to  Envira Gallery from the admin dashboard.

    Very helpful article, and a pretty neat feature! I would just like to add that once you’ve created the slider with the shortcode, you can then edit all of its setting by going into Soliloquy and finding the “Soliloquy Dynamic Slider” that magically appeared when you installed the Dynamic Add-on.

    I had a moment of confusion before I figured this out, and thought mentioning it might save someone else some frustration.
