WordPress allows you to create image galleries in your blog posts without any third-party plugins. Do you want to style a post differently if it has a gallery? There’s an easy way to know if a post has a gallery inside it and yes, it works inside The Loop as well.

Here’s how you can check if the current post has a gallery in its content:

// If the get_post_gallery function returns anything, then it means there's a gallery inside this blog post's content
if ( get_post_gallery() ){
	// There is a gallery in this blog post's content.
} 
else{
	// There is no gallery in this blog post.
}

The above code simply checks if the get_post_gallery function returns anything. If the function returns anything, then it means there’s a gallery in this blog post.

You can use this condition to style blog posts differently or just to check if there’s a gallery.

If you want to display the gallery if it exists, then you can use the following code:

// If the get_post_gallery function returns anything, then it means there's a gallery inside this blog post's content
if ( get_post_gallery() ){
	echo get_post_gallery();
}
