Key features: Easy implementation

SSG has very easy setup, it binds onto image hyper­links on the page auto­mati­cally. You can control this proccess by CSS classes. Define sepa­rate galleries, selectively activate full screen mode, selectively deactivate SSG, etc.
Example of SSG implementation and configuration:

HTML5 example of SSG implementation

Story Show Gallery has also method which offers more options how to run the gallery.

No e×it mode: You can write just minimal HTML code and SSG will crea­te a vertical gallery which behaves like a simple webpage. Because there is not much to dis­play without SSG, the gallery can run in the no e×it mode.

Mobile first, easy browsing

The Story Show Gallery is vertical, making it ideal for use on mobile phones. The user can browse through the gallery by simply scrolling.

SSG is probably the only gallery which can place each caption individually according to image size vs. screen size. This is really important on smart­phones in landscape mode.

SSG is fully responsive - it compares image size vs. screen size and place a caption to an optimal position.

Captions can contain EXIF data (camera info, exposure, iso, etc.) with link to EXIF listing. EXIF Example

Advanced fullscreen modes

On smartphones, full screen mode works like on YouTube. It activates after rotating a phone into landscape mode.

But the gallery can be set to launch directly into full-screen mode - portrait or forced landscape.

The gallery doesn't have an icon for full screen mode, according to statistics users simply don't use it. So it's up to you, how you configure the fullscreen behaviour of the gallery.

qr code

You can use this QR code to try the Story Show Gallery on your smart­phone. In the gallery's portrait mode, below the first image is the text " ↻ photos look better in land­scape mode" (can be changed or deactiv­ated). Tap on it and the gallery will switch to full screen, landscape mode. Iphone doesn't support this, the user has to unlock rotation and rotate the phone.

Neverending story

Behind the last image Story Show Gallery can load a HTML signpost to other photo galleries. See a sample signpost behind ssg

Brand building and social sharing

SSG can display your logo or some text (emoji) over images. You can configure it in the SSG settings. photo watermark

Social sharing icon is not put aside, it is part of a content, but subtle. A spectator's eyes will literally crash into the share icon at the end of a caption or in the corner of a photo. It can be disabled in the settings. social share icon

You can deep link into the gallery to show a part­icular pict­ure. Just use image name in the hashtag:  🐑 deep linking

Visual settings

SSG has 4 visual themes, you can also configure the image border, set the background opacity or use a visually unobtrusive cross cursor.


You can use Story Show Gallery freely within open source GNU GPL-3.0 license.
There is one exception from the license: Distributing Story Show Gallery within a Wordpress plugin or theme is only allowed for the author of Story Show Gallery.

Implementation and configuration

All you need to do, is add ssg.min.css and jQuery in the <head> of the HTML page and ssg.min.js before </body>. If you want to display EXIF data (camera info, exposure, iso, etc.), Exifr library is also needed.

It is better to link files from CDN - if a user has previously visited some webpage with jQuery or SSG library, files are already cached inside user's browser and don't need to be loaded again. Copy these lines into your HTML:

// ------- inside <head>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="">

// SSG requires jQuery library at least in version 1.7
<script src=""> </script>

// ------- before </body>
<script src=""> </script>

// add also Exifr library if you want to display EXIF data
<script src=""> </script>

// if you need IE11 compatibility, instead of story-show-gallery@3 use story-show-gallery@2.10. But it is without the EXIF support.

Important: It is necessary to define the version of the HTML docu­ment cor­rectly, otherwise the browser will use an old HTML mode, where some features are not supported. For HTML 5, simply use: <!doctype html>
<html lang="en">

Story Show Gallery looks for all hyper­links (<a> tags) on the page that points to a picture file (extensions: jpg, jpeg, JPG, JPEG, png, PNG, gif, GIF, webp). And adds to all these hyper­links an onclick function which runs the gallery. Unless nossg class is used.

A photo caption is taken from a thumbnail's alt att­ribute, link text or data-caption attribute. The data-caption has top priority, if it is empty then no caption will appear.

You can also add author's name - enter it into data-author attribute of hyperlink. SSG will create a gallery from all these four images (BigImage1~4):

<a href='BigImage1.jpg'> <img alt='img caption' src='thumb.jpg'> </a>
<a href='BigImage2.jpg data-author='photo by…''> Another caption </a>
<a href='BigImage3.jpg'></a> (an empty link, no caption)
<a href='BigImage4.jpg data-caption='img caption'> text </a>
// Hyperlinks with <Picture> tag inside are also supported.

If you want to divide text in the caption into several parts use <ins>◈</ins> with some graphic symbol (or just space) as the separator. The graphic symbol will only appear in the bottom caption in landscape mode, in the side caption or in portrait mode will be spacing between text parts.

An alternative is to simply use <br><br>, which creates spacing between text parts. Except for the bottom caption in landscape mode - there is not enough space for a full line spacing.


Default SSG configuration and language localization is at the begining of ssg.js file. List of all Story Show Gallery settings

You can edit settings in ssg.js file and then minify it. Or copy selected settings into your HTML to override default config­uration. Place it after ssg.min.js, as it is shown on the following picture.
Complete example of SSG implementation and configuration:

HTML5 example - this alt won't be a caption, it is for seo

CSS layout for thumbnails

The basic CSS thumbnails layout can be quite easily created using CSS. If you want something more sophisticated, you can use Grid Overflow CSS layout. It is fully respon­sive and offers the same 3D effect for thumbnails as can be seen on this page.

Grid overflow is a pure CSS solution for masonry layout and grid layout, where grid items can be given vertigo, panorama or VIP class to overflow into the next cell.

You can link Grid Overflow CSS directly from CDN (faster loading), just copy this line inside head tag of your HTML document:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">

To use Grid Overflow, simply add the Grid Overflow classes to the parent gallery tag and to the thumbnails. It can be quickly customized via CSS variables. Short implementation tutorial is available at

Enable EXIF

  1. Add Exifr library as it is shown above.
  2. By default EXIF is disabled. Set SSG.cfg.captionExif option to enable it.
  3. Image files has to be on the same domain as website, otherwise reading of EXIF data is blocked by CORS policy.

In case of manual lens, you can fill blank EXIF values with default ones. Use the SSG.cfg.fillExifBlanks option.

SSG files and minifying

Story Show Gallery consists of three files placed in the src directory:

The src/modules directory contains files ready to use with React, Next.js and Typescript:

There are minified files in the dist directory ready for deployment on your website. If you modify source files, you may want to minify the result. Use existing npm script:

npm install // it will install uglify-JS and uglify-CSS npm modules which are needed for minifying
npm run-script dist // it will minify the source files and put them into the dist directory.

Controling SSG by CSS classes

By default SSG will make one big gallery from all linked images on the page. CSS classes can change this behaviour. There are ten classes: ssg, nossg, gossg, vipssg, fs, ssglink and four themes. Classes have to be assigned to a hyper­link tag or to any tag which contains image hyper­links - they all will be affected:

<a href='outsideImg.jpg' class='fs' > caption </a>
<a href='insideImg2.jpg' class='ssglink gossg' > caption </a>
<section class='ssg fs vipssg ssgblack'>
    <a href='insideImg.jpg'> caption </a>
  <a href='insideImg2.jpg'> caption </a>

The ssg class creates a separate gallery, assign it to some parent element of many picture hyper­links. In the gallery will show only the pictures that are inside the element with the ssg class. Outside images creates a gallery with id#0.

The fs class will activate full screen mode. There are some exceptions, tablets & mobile landscape go everytime in full screen, it solves problems with mobile browsers

Image hyperlinks that aren't part of any separate gallery, will bind to the gallery (or hyperlinks) with vipssg class. So that they won't display alone.
If you click on the outsideImg.jpg hyperlink, it will display in the gallery together with inside images. But when you click on some inside image hyperlink, only images inside section.ssg will display in the gallery.

SSG will ignore image hyperlinks (or the whole gallery) with nossg class. Images will open normally into browser's tab. Example of nossg

Image hyperlinks with the gossg class can be only an initial image of the gallery. If a user want to see it and clicks on it. Otherwise image hyperlinks with gossg class won't show in the gallery.

The ssglink class creates a link (shortcut) to the image of the same name. From the example above: a click on the first insideImg2.jpg will behave the same way as if a user clicked on insideImg2.jpg in the separate gallery. This first insideImg2 also has a gossg class, so the image itself doesn't appear in any gallery and only behaves as a shortcut.

For example, this image hyperlink behaves the same way as if you clicked on the hyperlink SSG has 4 visual themes under the heading Visual settings.
Another ssglink example behaves the same way as if you clicked on the hyperlink 🐰 Massive pink rabbit man‑eater under the heading Gallery with text links.

SSG offers four themes and each has its own class, which you can assign to some gallery:
light theme -> class: ssglight, dim theme -> class: ssgdim, dark theme -> class: ssgdark and black theme -> class: ssgblack.

Gallery events

SSG offers seven gallery events, you can use them to run your functions. SSG events are part of the configuration.

  1. SSG.cfg.onGalleryStart fires before loading and displaying of the first image.
  2. SSG.cfg.onImgLoad fires when an image is completely loaded from a server.
  3. SSG.cfg.onImgScrollsIn fires when the next/previous/first image starts scrolling in to display (doesn't apply on manual scrolling).
  4. SSG.cfg.onImgView fires when an image is viewed.
  5. SSG.cfg.onOrientationChange fires when a device orientation changes.
  6. SSG.cfg.onBeyondGallery fires when a user gets beyond the gallery - usually on a signpost. If a page is longer than the gallery, a user can manually scroll beyond the gallery into a "void".
  7. SSG.cfg.onGalleryExit fires on the gallery exit.

SSG.cfg.onGalleryStart = function(data) { console.log( data.imgCount + ' images in the gallery. Starting with image: ' + data.imgName); }; // data object: data.imgCount // count of images in the gallery data.imgGalleryId // ID of current Image in the gallery data.imgPageId // ID of current image on the page data.GalleryId // ID of a gallery which belongs to initial image data.imgPath // whole path to current image data.imgName // image name of current image (no extension) data.imageCaption // image caption for current image // If a user is beyond the gallery data is just true or false. // True if a HTML file (signpost) is displayed behind the gallery. // Otherwise data is false.

SSG auto­mati­cally numbers image hyperlinks and galleries on the page, so IDs comes from this process. But you can also give some ID to current gallery run initiated via function.

You can find complete example in the source code of this page (at the end). It writes a little statistic of the gallery usage into the JS console.

Order of photos in the gallery

The picture a user clicked on is shown first, then Story Show Gallery displays following pictures and then the rest. Example: A user clicked on the fourth picture. Pictures are shown in the following order - 4,5,6,7 and then it continues with picture 1,2,3.
If a picture is part of a separate gallery (.ssg class), SSG prefers to show first three pictures of a gallery together. Example: if a user click on the third image, the order of images in the gallery will be 3,1,2,4,5,6. This behaviour can be deactivated in the settings.

Deep linking into Story Show Gallery

SSG can be initiated by a link with photo's name in a hashtag. For example this link will activate Story Show Gallery and show the photo named klakkur-kalsoy. It is enough to have in the hashtag crucial part of the name - #klakkur.

An address of each photo is shown in a browser’s navi­gation bar while browsing through the gallery. In full screen mode you can get a picture address via social share icon.

Full screen mode cannot be activated without a user click, so SSG will show a full screen offer if the deep linked image has fs class. A full screen offer is also shown in case of tablets and mobile phones in landscape mode. It solves problems with mobile browsers.

Vertical scrolling through the gallery

There are two options. Classic vertical scrolling with scrollbar or finger. And then jump scroll. A mouse wheel and arrow keys have an altered function, they scroll from one image to next image.

Move to the next image:
mouse wheel, down arrow key, right arrow, PgDn key or spacebar.
Move to the previous image:
mouse wheel, up arrow key, left arrow, or PgUP key.

For touch screens there are two invisible areas: the top and bottom half of the screen. After tapping somewhere into the bottom (top) half, SSG jump scroll to the next (previous) picture. method

You can run the gallery by Javascript calling method. without para­meters shows photos from all image hyperlinks on the page. Excluded are image hyperlinks with nossgg and gossg class.

The fs:true parameter will activate full screen mode. Use the fsa parameter instead, if the gallery is initiated without an active click from a user. That active click is needed for entering fullscreen mode. The fsa para­meter will ask if a user wants to switch into fullscreen mode.

The id parameter assigns to gallery an ID, which identifies the gallery within SSG events. Otherwise the ID of this gallery run would be -1. { fs:true, id:'4all8' } )

The gallery can run in the no e×it mode - no close icon, no ESC key - see sample gallery. No e×it mode is useful, when a html page is just a plain list of image links without any design and the gallery starts immediately after a page loads. In this case the fsa parameter is needed for activating full screen mode.

<body onload=' { noExit:true, fsa:true } )'>

Use initImgID parameter to set the initial image and also the gallery. SSG auto­mati­cally numbers image hyperlinks on the page, the first image link has ID 0. In this case, initial image of the gallery run will be image with page ID 13, even if it has gossg class.

The initImgID parameter respects .ssg classes and shows only pictures from the gallery, which contains initImgID picture. Also the gallery theme and full screen is taken from css class of the related gallery (can be overridden). The gallery ID will be 3, because 13th image link is in the third SSG gallery on this page. { initImgID: 13 } ) { initImgID: 13, fs: false, cfg: {theme: 'black'}} )

The initImgName parameter allows you to specify the initial image by its file name. The initImgName param is an array, the first element is the file name of the desired image (it can be only part of the file name, but then it is less specific). The second element is the order of the image, because several images with the same name can be linked on the page. Order zero means the first occurrence of the image with the given name.

The initImgName parameter also respects .ssg classes and shows only images from the related gallery. { initImgName: ['story-show-gallery-logo.jpg',1] } ) { initImgName: ['story-show-gallery-logo.jpg',1], fs: true, cfg: {theme: 'dark'}} )

With the cfg parameter you can override global configuration, it applies only for the current gallery run. The cfg is an object which have the same properties as the global configuration. Following gallery has photos shaped into ellipse with thick border at its top and bottom. { initImgName:['its-time',0], fs:true, cfg: { imgBorderWidthX: 32, imgBorderWidthY:0, imgBorderColor:'black', imgBorderRadius:50, watermarkOffsetX:50, watermarkOffsetY:-23, watermarkFontColor: '#b92a58', watermarkOpacity:1 }} )

The imgs parameter allows you to pass into SSG an array of images and captions to show them in the gallery. If you also add imgsPos parameter, images can be combined with photos from the page. The imgsPos:'start' places imgs before photos from the page, imgsPos:'end' after them. The imgsPos:'whole' shows in the gallery just imgs. It is a default parameter, which is no need to use. If you don't define imgs parameter, imgsPos will be ignored.

The initImgName parameter defines, that after traelanipa.jpg will be image with name 'on-the-hook' and other photos which belongs into the same gallery. { imgs: [ { href: 'traelanipa.jpg', alt: 'Trælanípa Cliff' } ], imgsPos:'start', initImgName:['on-the-hook',0], cfg: {theme: 'dark'} });

Without the imgsPos parameter, in the gallery will be only photos from array iceland. The initImgID param works even with arrays (initImgName not). { imgs: iceland, id: 'iceland', fs:true, initImgID: 1 }); -------- iceland = []; iceland[ 0 ] = { href: 'img/reynisdrangar-black-beach.jpg', alt: 'Black beach Reynisfjara, Reynisdrangar rocks' }; iceland[ 1 ] = { href: 'img/Seljalandsfoss.jpg', alt: 'Aurora behind Seljalandsfoss waterfall', author: 'photo by Flor' }; iceland[ 2 ] = { href: 'img/iceland-horses.jpg' }; { imgs: iceland, id: 'iceland', fs:true, initImgID: 0 });

SSG.restart() method

Restart method ends the running SSG gallery and then calls with new parameters. It has the same parameters as the method. On this page the restart method is used in singpost after the gallery. It runs another gallery without exit fullscreen mode or reloading a page.

Gallery for React and Next.js

Story Show Gallery can also work as a React Component. It is also compatibile with Next.js and Typescript. How to use it:

// install npm package:
npm i story-show-gallery

// import into React app:
import StoryShowGallery, { SSG }
from "story-show-gallery/src/modules/react";

// if you want EXIF support use:
import StoryShowGallery, { SSG }
from "story-show-gallery/src/modules/react-exifr";

// and also import CSS file:
import "story-show-gallery/src/ssg.css";
// if you use Next.js, you have to import it into _app.tsx as a global CSS

// use StoryShowGallery component and configure the gallery:
<StoryShowGallery config={{ theme: 'light', watermarkText: 'xxx' }} />

You can import story-show-gallery into the root component (app.js or _app.js in the case of Next.js) so that the whole application can use it. Or just import it into any component / page where you want an image gallery.

There is a sample imple­mentation ( SsgReact­Example.js ) in the example directory of the story-show-gallery npm package.

Story Show Gallery for React works the same way as it is described above. Just add the Story­Show­Gallery component into you React app and every image hyperlink on the entire page will be assigned an onclick function, which opens image into the gallery. Image hyperlinks can be controlled by CSS classes, as it is described above.

If you don't want to use image hyperlinks in your code, use the function with an array that defines urls and captions of photos. para­meters and its use are described above. parameters are local - only for the current gallery run.

Global parameters go into the <Story­Show­Gallery/> component, they are common to all and to galleries activated by image links. Global para­meters can be overridden by ones within the function or by gallery classes. The <Story­Show­Gallery/> compo­nent has one config prop that contains the configuration object with all parameters. List of all possible para­meters - use just param name without SSG.cfg prefix.

Important: if you use routing in React or Next.js, observeDOM should be set to true, otherwise SSG won't work.
Routing is changing the whole DOM, so SSG has to use observer to know about the image link changes. Only if you use with all images specified (imgs array), observer isn't needed.

// setting of observing DOM:
<Story­Show­Gallery config={{ theme: 'light', observeDOM: true }} />

Theme: Dim Dark Black Light

Gallery with text links

Story Show Gallery also supports text hyper­links. All four follow­ing pict­ures will appear in separate gallery (because of .ssg class):

🐰 Massive pink rabbit man‑eater - a text link to a photo.
Enlightment inside Bankang cave - with empty data-caption
🔗 A broken link - You will notice it before site visitors do
an empty (invisible) link to the picture with SSG logo.
