TTG CE3 Theme for WordPress

TTG CE3 Theme for WordPress

TTG CE3 Theme for WordPress allows you to create custom WordPress themes from Lightroom's Web module, built on The Turning Gate's responsive CE3 framework. Themes are responsive, Retina-ready, photo-friendly, suitable for writers and photographers, bloggers and photobloggers, and anyone else wanting to manage a site or blog using WordPress. Designed to be awesome on desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.

Themes are fully and independently functional, so can be used in a variety of ways: as standalone websites or blogs, in conjunction with CE3 image galleries and publisher, or as a supplemental blog to an existing CE3 website. Flexibility as usual, and the possibilities are practically endless.


TTG CE3 Cart

TTG CE3 Cart

TTG CE3 Cart is a shopping cart system for The Turning Gate's CE3-series image galleries, and is the only full-fledged shopping cart system for Lightroom-based Web publishing. Used together with a supported TTG image gallery, TTG CE3 Cart makes it easy to sell images and other goods from your website using a cart that is visually cohesive with your site design, and easy to manage and maintain.

New in the CE3 version, the cart supports digital image sales and fulfillment via automatic download!

The cart optionally supports PayPal for online payments, or can be used to generate invoiced orders for those preferring to collect payment separately. Salable physical items may be setup with any number of additional purchase options. Orders are sent to your email, and may be saved to your server as a backup.


TTG CE3 Auto Index

TTG CE3 Auto Index

Our standalone gallery indexing plugin, an excellent organizational tool for your galleries. Creates a table-of-contents of image galleries, and updates automatically when new galleries are added.

Use the auto index to supplement an existing website with Lightroom-created galleries. Combine with TTG CE3 Pages to create multiple "Galleries" pages or to create parent categorizations (Landscapes, Travel, Weddings, etc.) for multiple galleries. Combine with TTG CE3 Publisher to allow the creation of Album Sets within Publish Services. Or just use it to corral groups of related image galleries in standalone form.
