Mass Image Insert

    It would be really great if WordPress would offer me the option to insert a bunch of images at once into a post. Not as a gallery, but individually with all the size presets and info intact. I honestly can't find a plugin that works or is up to date with the core. I've wasted more time then I care to remember trying to find a plugin that is up to date and will do this with no luck. It would be really great if this feature would be intergrated into the core so that I don't have to live in fear of an update breaking the plugin.

    The fact that there might not be a perfect plugin for you at present does not make this any less pluggable. In my opinion this is definitely plugin territory.

    That would be great, but I can't find a plugin that does the work and in the long run, that and built in lightbox support would both be great additions to WordPress.

    Now if you have any suggestions as to where I can find a working plugin that provides the mass insert feature that would be great. I had thought about trying to use the gallery option, but it insists on a minimum of two columns with tiny sample picks. I might be able to use it as a work around in some cases where I don't need to add a lot of text and editing it down to one column, but I don't know how to change the picture sizes for the gallery...

    Are you using the right tool for the job though? Do all of the images need to be in one posts, or might you actually be better of with images-as-posts? With some clever theming, one could easily make an archive page behave like a huge multi-column display of images-as-posts.

    No, I don't think that would work, since I'm using the images as part of an article or review.

    Example:

    I see. This is not something that I see many people doing, and it seems difficult to automate with a plugin since to intersperse the images with text.

    What I would do: upload all images, with consecutively numbered filenames. Insert one image. Switch to code view. Duplicate the html specifying the image as many times as you have images. Change the filenames to reflect the consecutive number. Switch back to visual editor to add your text.

    It's not perfect, but still probably a little bit faster than going to 'Insert image', selecting the right image, and hitting insert into post 27 times.

    I thought about that, but the site doesn't generate consecutive numbering in the code view. Each code appears to be unique, which made it a rather frustrating exercise when I tried it. I just need something where I can select images and drop them in.

    If the Gallery view could do this in a useful way, I would use the gallery, but it shrinks the images and tries to make multiple columns.

    *sigh*

    Thank youf or the help though. I really appreciate it. I've been beating my head against this particular wall for two months now =T_T=

    Try this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/image-mass-upload-wizz/. It allows you to mass upload/insert directly in a post within seconds directly from the post editor. It saved me pretious time...

    A similar issue made me write a simple application you can find here https://sourceforge.net/projects/wpimgins/

    Any suggestions about how it's working or what else can be added will be appreciated.
