**Available for Showit + Blog  &  Advanced Blog users**

It's easy to get masonry style galleries in a blog with the help of a Wordpress plugin.

This plugin is not yet compatible with Wordpress 5's Gutenberg editor. You will need to install/activate the Classic Editor plugin in order to continue using this plugin.
We are waiting to see if the plugin developer will update the plugin for WP 5.
