Modula Image Gallery


With Modula, building stunning lightbox galleries, masonry grids, custom grids, and more is easier than ever with a few clicks from the WordPress dashboard.

Modula is the best WordPress gallery plugin for adding custom, unique, and responsive galleries to your website. It has a free and a premium version, both of which allow you to add amazing, fast-loading galleries.

What does the Free version of Modula offer:

– Multiple types of image galleries: Creative, Custom grid, Masonry
– 100% Gutenberg compatibility
– Integrations with most popular website builders: Beaver Builder, Elementor, Divi Builder
– Lightbox effect for images
– Social buttons for image sharing are Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Email. See the demo for social sharing.

Now for the Premium version:

Presets: Are you tired of going through each gallery and setting up the same settings repeatedly? Use the Presets extension to define a basic set of options for your galleries, then simply add this to each new gallery you create. It saves a lot of time!
Video gallery: Use the Video extension to combine videos with images in your galleries. It works with YouTube, Vimeo, and self-hosted videos.
Lightbox slideshow: improve the user experience with your galleries by presenting the images in a stunning slideshow.
Slider gallery: This helps display your gallery images in a new format type: slider. It can be synced with a thumbnail strip below it. You can switch it up by adding different elements to the slider: dots, arrows, a fade effect, infinite loop, center mode, and more.
Gallery Filters: Apply one or more filters to your images to allow your website’s visitors to easily sort through your gallery.
Albums: Let’s say you are going on a holiday trip and wish to document each day in a separate gallery. The Albums extension will allow you to group up all your holiday galleries in a single listing, enabling easy access to your precious memories.
– Multiple dynamic effects: Loading Effects, Hover effects and Zoom effects
Watermark images: protect your photos by adding custom watermarks.
Right-Click Protection: use it to prevent visitors from downloading your images with right-click protection. It also turns off keyboard shortcuts for downloading images.
Speed UP: Using this extension, you can optimize your images by reducing their file sizes, resizing them through ShortPixel’s image optimization algorithms, and serving them from StackPath’s CDN (content delivery network). The result? A fast website without the high costs associated with it.
Whitelabel: This extension helps you remove all mentions of Modula from the plugin and customize it with your own brand, logo, and text.
– Support and updates are included with each purchase for one year.


To insert a gallery onto a WordPress post/page all you need to do is copy the shortcode from your Modula gallery edit page.

How to add a Modula gallery to posts and pages?

Migrate away from NextGEN Gallery

The layout doesn’t look correct

Check the console of the browser and look if you see any error like: “Uncaught TypeError: undefined is not a function”
This errors means that the browser doesn’t know the Modula JavaScript plugin, most of the time the problem is caused by a wrong jQuery inclusion by the theme or another plugin.

Why does some image look blurry ?

If you get blurry and pixellated images then you need to raise the “Minimum image width” parameter inside the “General” section.

How can I get support?

The free version convinced me to buy the plug-in but that didn’t work on my self made theme. The Modula support was really great! They helped me to find and fix the error in my theme. I didn’t expect this kind of help – it wasn’t there fault it was mine! The plug-in is wonderfully simple and effective, I’m thrilled!There’s just one small improvement I’d love to see: That defaults were included with every purchased version. Big thank you to the great work of the modula team! 🙂

After the new update, unfortunately different functions were no longer present, I took the liberty to notify the support with the exact information (Screenshots and Video) of the problem. However, I had no luck, because the support staff did not want to find a solution, every time I tried to explain where exactly is the problem, I received answers that were not related to my requests. However, I must admit that Support reacted very quickly, maximum 2/3 hours and that is very Positive. With great surprise after a week finally a solution, the Support correspondences started to work with incredible speed and the functions that had disappeared were implemented again. I must say that I am thrilled with this company and I will continue to use the Plugin which for me is the best on the market. Thanks to the CEO and all the crew for the great work.

It’s a great plugin. Easy to work with and yet very feature rich. The lightbox is the best I’ve seen and perfect for museum websites. Excellent responsive support too.

I have only just started using Modula and so far I am impressed. I have yet to read up on paid versions. Ideally I would like to be able to add a link under each individual image in the gallery. Not sure if that is possible.
