  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/LightGallery/LightGallery.php";
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration edit

You can set LightGallery options by setting a $lgLightGalleryOptions variable in LocalSettings.php after including the extension in LocalSettings.php.

require_once "$IP/extensions/LightGallery/LightGallery.php";
$lgLightGalleryOptions = '{thumbnail: true, mode: "lg-fade", getCaptionFromTitleOrAlt: true, subHtmlSelectorRelative: true, animateThumb: false, showThumbByDefault: false }';
