How to Use Dynamic Content Gallery

by Ben Cook on March 9, 2010

For those of you who have seen my Thesis skins, you’ve probably noticed the content slider section at the top of the home page on many of the designs. That slider is made possible by the Dynamic Content Gallery plugin, or DCG for short.

While I love the plugin, there are a ton of options and it can be kind of troublesome to set up and get going the first time around. So, I decided to throw together a quick video walking you through the process of getting ready to use this powerful plugin.

Just a few quick notes before we get started though:

  1. I need a better screen capture program that let’s me zoom in and make the content on my screen a bit clearer to see.
  2. I need to thank Raven SEO Tools (that’s an affiliate link because I seriously have a man-crush on this company) for giving me the Flip camera that I used to shoot the beginning of this video. I won it in their #RavenHunt Twitter contest and I really can’t say enough good things about their company. They recently announced a $19/mo option so there’s really no reason NOT to use them.
  3. Let me know in the comments below whether you find this useful or not. As I say in the video if people like this I’ll do more. If not, I’ll take my ugly mug back behind the screen :)

I think that’s it so enjoy the video!
