SmugMug Embed


Allows users to search and embed images into posts or pages directly from their SmugMug accounts.

This plugin adds a tab into the media manager which gives authors access to a linked Smug Mug account.

The plugin first authorizes the user to a smug mug account. In the settings screen, the administrator decides which galleries will be available to the author, the sizes available, and several other options.

  3. After the plugin is activated, you will find SmugMug Embed in the Plugins menu of the Admin Panel.


How does an admin decide which galleries to display?

On the settings page of SmugMug Embed, administrators choose which galleries they want to display on the embed form by placing a check mark in the box next to the gallery name.

No galleries are being displayed on the settings page…What is happening?

The plugin must first authenticate with smug mug. If this has not been done, please click the « Start Activation With SmugMug » button.
If the plugin has been authenticated in the past and something is still wrong, click the « Delete SmugMug Authentication » button on the setting page for SmugMug Embed.

What is the process to authenticate with SmugMug?
  1. Click the « Start Authentication With SmugMug » button.
  2. Click the « Click here to log into SmugMug to approve access ». This will open a new window on which will ask the user to verify credentials.
  3. Enter the username and password when prompted (if not already logged into SmugMug). Once complete, the screen will display « SmugMugEmbed was added to your Authorized Applications. »
  4. Close the SmugMug window.
  5. Back on the SmugMug Embed settings page, click the « Authorization Complete…Let’s finalize this » button.
  6. The window will refresh in 5 seconds. If not, click the « Got the key » button.
Why can locked galleries only display thumbnails?

A locked gallery requires a password to view the sized images on SmugMug. No mechanism exists to pass the gallery password to SmugMug, so only thumbnails can be displayed.

Why does my gallery name have « thumbnails only » next to it in the drop down list of available galleries?

The gallery is locked.
