After these actions Your gallery will be ready to use.
You can output the gallery multiple ways:
* Use a shortcode “SXPhotoGallery” in a page content. Example: [SXPhotoGallery gallery-slug] where “gallery-slug” is
a slug of Your gallery.
* Another way to add a gallery is simply go to edit page where you want to add a gallery.
Above the editor section there will be a button “Insert SX Photo Gallery”. Press it and select a gallery from the list.
Than press “Insert” and a shortcode will be added to editor. Save the changes and gallery will be added to the page.
