Really Simple Gallery Widget

Display images from your media library or the current post in a widget. Highly configurable.

Really Simple Gallery Widget adds a widget to display images from the Media Library, no extra uploading or creating custom post types required. You can choose to show images from a specific post/page or the entire media library, and/or show only images attached to the post/page currently being viewed. Especially helpful if you create photo gallery pages using the built-in WordPress media library and just want to be able to display those images in a widget area.


  • Add as many widgets as you want, wherever you want
  • Display images from a specific post/page
  • Display images from the entire Media Library
  • Display images from the post/page currently being viewed
  • Select a number of images
  • Select any registered size in WordPress
  • Display the images in ascending, descending, or random order
  • Show or hide captions
  • Link the images to the original file, post, anchor in the post, attachment page, or nothing. NOTE: If the image is not attached to a post, the file link will be used instead.
  • Add a prefix to the link and image title (appears as a tooltip)
  • Use a rel attribute for the link – great for lightboxes

  1. I really like this plugin! For some reason, I can’t get any captions to show. They are there in the Media Library, just don’t show up on the side panel. Anything you can think of off hand? Once again, Thanks a lot for this awesome plugin.
