Custom Headers

The header image dimensions are 1800×400 but can be any size. IMPORTANT NOTE: The image will be stretched to cover the header area at all times. That means a square image will appear cropped for widescreen displays.

  1. Click on the Appearance → Header
  2. Upload a new image in the Select Image section by clicking ‘Choose File’ then ‘Upload’

Custom Backgrounds

  2. Select one of the existing images or upload a new one by clicking ‘Choose File’ then ‘Upload’

Adding Content from Third-Party Networks/Sites

Gallery is unique in that it allows you to display embedded media content on your index/archive/search pages, as well as inside your post content.

How It Works

Whenever the Gallery theme finds embedded media from a third-party provider, it will automatically display the first media item on index/archive/search pages. For example, if you placed the following URL in the content of a post, the media from that URL would show up on grid layouts in place of the featured image.


This feature has been tested with some of the major oembed providers, such as Vimeo, YouTube, Rdio, Spotify, and Soundcloud, but may not work for providers with a minimum embed size greater than 300 pixels, due to the size of grid layout items.

Link Post Format

When using the “link” post format, the first link found within the content of the post will replace the primary heading permalink from any archive or listing template. That means visitors will be able to click the title of a “link” post and go directly to the URL you linked.
