This plugin organizes different WordPress 2.5+ galleries into albums for easy display and navigation by using parent/child pages and custom fields.
Nope. Currently this plugin only works for pages because it relies on the parent/child page relationship.
Nope. The plugin will use the first image in the gallery by default. If you don't put in a blurb to describe your gallery, the plugin will just display the title of the gallery and nothing else.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, I suppose), the plugin displays all levels of child pages underneath the parent page. There is currently no way to restrict it to only one level. A page hierarchy like the following:
Would be displayed as the following on the album page:
This is what works for me. I have a parent Photos page. I have my Album pages as child pages of the Photos page. I just manually link to the Album pages on the Photos page. Then I have my Gallery pages as child pages of each Album page.
I'm sure you can figure out your own way of doing it. But this type of hierarchy was what I had in mind when I designed this plugin.
