    I would prefer not to add yet another plug-in if possible. It just slows thing up.

    Plugins do not slow your site down as much as people think.

    The unattach/reattach one will not slow down people who visit your site. It can't. What it will do is possibly slow down your site while you're using it actively, but the rest of the time it sits there, lonely, waiting for your love.

    The more connections your website has to make the slower it gets. And if something holds back things from loading the page speed drops heaps. Google+, Twitter, Facebook and a few other plugins I had before killed my site.

    I never got a problem with my pagespeed, just gzip your java and css files, i allways get 90% or more google pagespeed with my wordpress sites. Most of them use about 30+ plugins.

    I think my questions is right in this thread, if not, i am sorry. Is there any WordPress Plugin, that allows me, to make something like a playlist under my embedded Youtube Videos? Maybe with first | prev | next | last, i do this atm with custom fields, but i hope there is a plugin for something like this.

    One of the reasons I began using WP was the hope that simple matters like an galleries would be handled... easily...
    Just doing my first couple of steps away from my own custom codes but I must say; I fear! :)

    Ipstenu, I have just tried this plugin on a test site and I have to say that it does the job. I hate plugins though, the less of them the better. They usually slow down the site performance.

    Yes, I think that media management should be really improved in next releases, not only removing embedded styles in media.php but also projecting a deep refactoring of the whole media management.

    I hate html inserting when a single image is uploaded into a post, it should be better to insert a shortcode referentiating the media entry. If I would like to change something when displaying images I could only modify the shortcode function. The multiple image creation with pixel in filename is painful, too...

    I know that these are not simple modifications, but WP today isn't anymore a blog engine, but a full CMS and your effort should be towards CMSs, don't you think so?

    The other thing with plugins is that we have to wait for them to be updated when new versions of WordPress come out. I have a few great ones that don't work anymore and some developers just stop working on them. Most are free so it is still amazing that we get them though. *Thank you to everyone here that has made or helped make some of these wonderful plugins.

    I hope the gallery gets fixed one day. It would be nice to link to external URLs like on my site. I also want to be able to have multiple galleries on one page. Not just one gallery for the whole page. Facebook has just started doing something like that. Maybe they read my post from about a year ago lol.
