After returning back from WordCamp Columbus, we wanted to post some photos on the site. In the past, we have used Flickr for event photos. However, once we logged into Flickr, it turned out that Flickr has changed their business model. You must upgrade to a PRO account, or you are limited to 200 photos ONLY. We decided to start using the built-in WordPress gallery (not sure why we didn’t do this to begin with). Anyways, it turned out that the Native jQuery Lightbox plugin that we recommended in that article has been discontinued in favor of Jetpack. Well that was sort of a bummer. We decided to open Jetpack to test out the carousel feature, and it was totally mind-blowing. The carousel transformed the standard gallery into an immersive full-screen experience with easy navigation, and comments. We knew we wanted this feature in our site however the worst part about JetPack is that it disables all its features unless you connect with WordPress.com (even when you don’t have to). Out of frustration, we decided to fork the carousel module and turned it into an independent plugin. In this article, we will show you how to add a beautiful gallery carousel in WordPress without JetPack.
