Meow Gallery Block


Polished and beautiful gallery built for image lovers. Designed to work for WordPress 5 (Gutenberg Block) and also the standard Gallery Shortcode. It’s responsive, retina-friendly, has modern layouts, is blazing fast and tightly optimized. If you are interested in seeing the layouts in actions, click here: Meow Gallery’s Layouts.


Uses WordPress and Gutenberg naturally without hacking it, and more importantly, without imposing its own system and making your website dependent of it. It means you can use the Meow Gallery and one day switch back to the WordPress core rendering, or anything else. It works everywhere, easily, and fits naturally in WordPress. We will never blow it up with features that most users do not need.


Shipped with the popular layouts such as Tiles, Masonry, Justified (like Flickr) and Square (like Instagram), only using CSS, so no more scripts to slow down your pages and the rendering. Demo here.


Since this gallery works with WordPress in a natural way, it should be compatible with any other plugins or themes (of course, it depends on how those have been exactly implemented). The following plugins might interest you.

  • External links: If you want to create links from your images to external URLs, we recommend you the Gallery Custom Links plugin.
  • Lightroom: It fully works with WP/LR Sync and its attributes. If you wish to use your collections in Lightroom automatically, then, this is easy!
  • Lightbox: The choice of the lightbox is yours, so this gallery does not come with one. However, we made the Meow Lightbox. It follows the same principles.

Pro Version

If you want to support us, you will get those additional features.
* Infinite/Lazy loading, for a faster page loading and a smoother experience for the user.
* The Carousel, a very cool and dynamic layout.
* Animations on your images.

What photographers need

Again an excellent plug in. I use WP mainly for presenting photo's and to come into contact with other photographers. This plugin looks just cool to present your work! Also the light-box is great!

Beautiful, slick and well optimised gallery plugin

I was looking for something to replace the Tiled Galleries feature of Jetpack, as I didn't want my images being served from Jetpack's own CDN and wanted greater control over the layout. This plugin is incredibly straightforward to set up, replacing WordPress's built-in gallery and therefore not requiring the use of different shortcodes (like many other gallery plugins). Works great alongside the Meow Lightbox and Retina 2x plugins too. Jordy (the developer) has also been very responsive and helpful in providing support, as and when needed. Can't recommend it enough.

Exactly what I needed

This is well done. If you are looking for a plugin that beautifies your post galleries out-of-the-box, then you will want to try this: 1. look at your current post gallery with some discontent, 2. install this plugin, 3. refresh your post, 4. be happy. Note: this works well together with the Meow Lightbox plugin. I suppose Automattic will want to build this into their JetPack plugin eventually (which I don't use). Thank you Jordy and Thomas.
