  1. Go to FW Gallery -> Dashboard and make sure Quick Check section is green, telling you that all important folders exist and writable.
  2. In FW Gallery -> Settings set general categories and files layout and design. Can be done later.

Detailed overview of every FW Gallery section in Admin panel can be found in Plugin manual.

Understanding Add-ons concept

FW Gallery is a free Wordpress plugin with free and paid add-ons. Add-on is a very important element of Fastw3b product eco system. It allows flexibility to use only those features every website needs, saving budget and time configuring through numerous features one may not need.

It doesn't matter if you buy add-ons from your plugin's Admin Add-ons section or our website. These transactions are equal and will reflect in your account the same way. All paid add-ons come as subscriptions for 30 days or 12 months.

You must verify your website before you can make any purchases from it.

We came up with 30 days option because some websites need a quick and cheap solution. Sometimes it may be good for testing purposes while developer is not sure if solution will work with other products on a website.

12 months subscription allows you to download updates any time within a year and get access to full support. Yearly subscription costs at least 250% cheaper comparing to monthly option. We encourage you to get yearly subscriptions and enjoy all benefits of new releases and exceptional support.

You can always test all add-ons on our FW Gallery demo website, including admin section which is also available for testing.
Documentation, demo & support

Every product has its own documentation section, demo website and support. While development is a never-ending process we try our best to keep documentation and demo synced and actual to current development state.

Most of the job is being done while we develop and test new releases. From the other hand our tests are limited to our imagination and environment we test in. Sometimes, receiving your questions in Ticket Support, we hear of new ways to use features we never thought of using this way. Sometimes we discover how some specific hosting environments may affect our product performance. It also happens when we miss some bugs and release them in new versions after fixing other parts of the product. But as soon as problem is discovered we release an update as soon as we can.

Our Ticket Support system is part of our subscription for all our customers disregarding of number add-ons you use or technical level you have. If you can't find any information or feel puzzled please don't hesitate to contact us and we will assist with any your questions about our product and add-ons.
