AutoTags are the quick and easy way to get your Gallery content into you stories, static pages, comments, and forum posts –"inline". This functionality supported by our G2Bridge technology publishes images, audio, video, and pretty much anything that Gallery supports into Geeklog with little effort. The best thing about AutoTags is that you can use Gallery to control access, sizing, and display modes of the content.

All you need to do is to learn a few variables to start getting AutoTags working for you. Below is the complete list of AutoTag variables. Questions about usage and requests for more variables, can be asked in our forums. Scroll down to see some examples of the publishing capabilities of AutoTags.
