Galleria, a gallery style child theme of Hybrid. Originally a child theme of Thematic, built by Chris Wallace, and release for Smashing Magazine.

I have taken the gallery theme, and ported it over to work with the Hybrid theme framework. Since I am huge fan of Justin Tadlocks theme, and I really liked how simple the gallery theme was. Using the base jQuery and idea, I’ve changed the look and incorporated a few other features. into the admin area.

Tutorials & Documentation

While I do encourage people to ask questions and participate in the support forums, it’s always a good idea to check here for your answer first. There’s loads of useful information about using the theme.


  • dynamic image re-size on single page.
  • WordPress 2.7 compatible
  • Built on the Hybrid framework
  • jQuery hover effects
  • jQuery scrolling effects.
  • ‘Save to Delicious’ link
  • ‘Tweet This’ link
  • Flexible footer widget area

Supported Plugins

Galleria has built in template support for two additional plugins, both by Lester Chan. Plus support for BuySell Ads by Thaya Kareeson

  • WP-PostViews – link
  • WP-PostRatings – link
  • BuySellAds – link

I Suggest that you download and install the first two fore sure.

Admin Options

In the theme option’s page, you’ve got control over a few site properties.

Adding Gallery Items

To use the default options for the Gallery Theme, here are instructions for creating gallery entries:

  1. Upload a full sized image ( any size wider than 500px )
  2. Set WordPress to resize thumbnails to 118×110 ( more info )
  3. in the Image field enter the full sized (original file ) URL, for example
  4. Next, in the “thumbnail” field enter the thumbnail URL, for example×110.jpg
  5. If applicable, enter the URL and Designer, in the appropriate fields

Setting Up Star Ratings **

  1. Install the WP-Post Ratings plugin from Activate both the plugin and the widgets.
  2. To switch the type of images to transparent .PNGs, open wp-content/plugins/wp-postratings/wp-postratings.php in your favorite text editor and change the following lines ( located at line 31 ):
    ### Define Image Extension
    define('RATINGS_IMG_EXT', 'gif');
    //define('RATINGS_IMG_EXT', 'png');

    to match this:

    ### Define Image Extension
    //define('RATINGS_IMG_EXT', 'gif');
    define('RATINGS_IMG_EXT', 'png');
  3. Then upload that file back into the plugins folder.
  4. In your WordPress admin panel, click the Ratings > Options link on the left sidebar.
  5. The transparent .PNG stars should be selected by default.
  6. Under ‘Ratings AJAX Style’ change ‘Show Loading Image With Text’ to ‘No’ and ‘Show Fading In And Fading Out Of Ratings’ to what ever your prefer.
  7. Click ‘Save Changes.’
  8. Now click the ‘Ratings Templates’ on the left sidebar.
  9. Replace the text in the ‘Ratings Vote Text’ box with the following code:%RATINGS_IMAGES_VOTE%
  10. Replace the text in the ‘Ratings Voted Text’ with the following code:%RATINGS_IMAGES%

      That’s correct, I haven’t said that it’s not. Actually I haven’t even released it to the public, or announced notes. But, it’s a port over from Chris Wallace’s Gallery theme. Which was a child theme of Thematic. But, since I am a huge fan of Justin Tadlock’s Hybrid Theme, I decided to convert it with a few modifications.

      I ensure you, that I’ve contacted Chris, and he is OK with it.

        No worries Austin. Just to confirm, yes, I was contacted regarding this theme’s release and I have no problem with it.

          Thanks bud!

          Have you had a chance to download and test it? How do you like the demo?

            Looks good, I think the background is a bit distracting, but that’s pretty easy for people to change.

    How may i have 100px X 100px Thumbnails?

    • Austin

      June 1, 2009 at 3:27 pm

      You would have to go into the style.css file and edit the img style, as well as your thumbnail size in the admin + the home.php file which shows the actual size. It may mess up the alignment of the columns as I haven’t calculated the smaller thumb sizes.

    Adding star ratings looks to be an especially difficult and time-consuming task. About how long would you expect that to take?
