7 - Add an additional gallery (optional)

It is possible to add a second InstaShop gallery to your shop.

You will need to build your own embed code (see below). As such, adding an additional gallery is considered to be INTERMEDIATE difficulty.

Note:
  • The second gallery will display the same pictures as your primary gallery
  • You will not be able to change the look and feel of the second gallery via the InstaShop settings interface. Instead you will need to edit the embed code you create.


Building your embed code

You can change every aspect of additional galleries you add to your shop. To do this, you will need to build your own embed code.

When adding an additional gallery, you MUST include:

<div class="instashop-gallery"></div>
After that, you need to add changes that are DIFFERENT to the primary gallery you have set up in the InstaShop app. You do this by adding additional elements BEFORE the

></div>

Examples

If you wanted to change the gallery to a grid, it would look like this:

<div class="instashop-gallery" data-layout="grid"></div>

If you wanted to change the gallery to a grid and limit the rows in the grid to 2, it would look like this:

<div class="instashop-gallery" data-layout="grid" data-rows="2"></div>


Here are the code elements you can add to your embed code:


To change the type of gallery displayed:
data-layout="grid"
data-layout="slider"
data-layout="collage"

data-theme="light"
