Pierrick on Piwigo

Piwigo is the open source photo gallery for the web

Insert your photos from Piwigo into WordPress

This feature has been expected for a long time and João C. proposes it with PiwigoMedia : WordPress users can easily insert photos from their Piwigo photo gallery into a blog post. Easily means :

  1. browse your gallery
  2. select photos
  3. click on the “insert into post” button

Note: PiwigoMedia is a plugin for WordPress, not for Piwigo


settings for PiwigoMedia
Define the Piwigo URL, Piwigo can be on another server.
WordPress post editor (TinyMCE) with PiwigoMedia button
when you edit your WordPress post, a new button appears to select photos from Piwigo
the PiwigoMedia window, to select your photos from Piwigo
select a category (an album), then one ore more photos and insert them into your WordPress post
photos from Piwigo inserted into WordPress post
Photos from Piwigo are inserted as links into your WordPress post


PiwigoMedia is really simple to use and does the job the right way. As PiwigoMedia smartly uses the Piwigo web API, your Piwigo doesn’t have to be installed on the same server or in the same database. Your Piwigo can be installed on the other side of the planet!

Visit João C. website and Download PiwigoMedia

    • Sorry to read this jiechic! If your hosting provider replaces the page with an advertisement, I have no solution to avoid it!

  5. Hi, Please Please Please add the ability to grab a random Piwigo Image from the site, and display a thumbnail in a widget? I’d love to run a ‘random image of the day’ widget and grab from my piwigo gallery in Wordpess.

    as a secondary request, i’d love Piwigo accounts to communicate with WordPress accounts, so a user from my main site can carry the same account to piwigo.

    but i’d most like to see random image widget functionality.

    thanks for your hard work.
