Single Gallery from Uploaded Media

    Hi there,

    Thanks to all who made WordPress, it is awesome. I have been using it for my first site (bouncybones.ch) and it is simply wonderful. I would like to share an idea which I have so far not seen implemented fully, I have certainly seen a lot of posts asking for it but no solutions as yet.

    Idea Source:
    We have a dog walking and care service, we would like to share with all the pet owners the pictures taken during the course of the day of their pets having fun. The easiest way for us to do this is from our iPhones, as we are constantly on the move.

    I would like to be able to upload pictures which are then automatically published in the site's gallery without having to add image IDs, tags or anything to the page short code. I can partially do this by selecting the gallery page within WordPress iOS App and simply publishing the image, this is what I have online at the moment here http://bouncybones.ch/home/gallery/. HOWEVER.. .

    - The images cannot be included in a slideshow, JetPack carousel is very nice
    - The images are duplicated when I use the JetPack Mosaic feature (which is very neat too!), the thumbnail from JetPack and the image appear
    - The latest image is at the bottom of the page

    The IDEA/s.. .
    Enable me to upload images from Mobile App directly to Gallery. Thumbnails can be displayed either in square/rectangle/circle. Thumbnails can be sorted according to date. Image carousel can be used to view images. Tags can be added to the images (from the mobile app again) allowing owner to identify their pooches quickly.

    This seems would seem to be such a basic requirement (no criticism intended here) that has gone astray in building such a complicated system, I hope someone agrees and has the skills to fix it, thanks for reading!

    Many thanks,

    Philippe

    You have to attache images to posts for the post to know "This is my gallery"

    However getting your site to automatically display all attached images is an issue with your theme. Some themes can do this. You'll have to find one that does, or use the gallery controller.

    > Enable me to upload images from Mobile App directly to Gallery.

    You can do that already, just not the way you're thinking :) upload the images to the posts. However it would be a point for the iOS app, not for the core of WP.

    > Thumbnails can be displayed either in square/rectangle/circle

    This is a theme design point, and is not 'core' to WordPress.

    > Tags can be added to the images (from the mobile app again) allowing owner to identify their pooches quickly.

    THAT is a core feature many people have asked for :) I believe there are plugins that can help, but not via the mobile app yet.

    It's the media uploader on the full site. You can create a gallery via the normal WP backend.
