~Where Art meets Code~
Category Grid View Gallery is back and its loaded. This plugin provides a new way to build your Portfolios and Photo Galleries. People who want to show their work using a gallery/portfolio don't have to exclusively install a plugin and upload images on it. Now, you can just upload your work as a blog post every now and then and this plugin will take care of the rest.
Either use it for a photo-blog, or just replace your Blog Post "Loop" with a more visual and artistic approach. With an admin settings panel, shortcode generator, pagination feature, themes and a lot of new customizable options, you just cannot go wrong with this.
Category Grid View Gallery (in short CG View) is a wordpress plugin which displays your blog posts from a specified category/group of categories or tags in form of a grid of thumbnail images. The thumbnails are generated on-the-fly from either the first image attached in your post of from the featured image set for the post. By clicking on the thumbnails there is an option of opening the posts inside a lightbox. For posts which do not have any image, a default image is displayed. User can also upload their own default image.
The Plugin uses a SHORTCODE which can be put anywhere in your post or your page (even the text widget) to display the thumbnails. There is a caching feature which improves the processing of the images and makes the plugin faster. It Also includes a Pagination feature which is great for displaying featured posts on your Home Page. Also a template tag included to put it in your theme file.
UPDATE : New and improved lightbox. Now you can show complete posts with or without comments in the lightbox. Also, shortcodes, other plugins (eg. facebook like button) etc. work inside the lightbox
