Project: WordPress Contus VideoGallery Template


To achieve a website make-over with the minimum effort. A large part of the client’s website used the Video Gallery plugin. Therefore by building a new custom display template for any video in the gallery the look, feel and navigation of all those pages displaying a video was changed instantly.


WordPress, PHP, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3


Contus Video Gallery doesn’t store all the video information in a custom post, instead it has its own set of tables within the WordPress database. So it wasn’t possible to use the normal WordPress features to display the template. At the same time I didn’t want to make the mistake of reading everything directly from the database. So I studied the Contus plugin and used their classes whenever possible and only wrote my own functions when really necessary.


The project was complete in 1 week.
