Allowing visitors to browse 'media' (7 posts)

    Every day, I post at least one image to my blog. Is there any way I can allow visitors to view those images independently from the posts they are attached to?

    Ideally, I would like to make it possible for users to access something similar to the Media >> Library section of the WordPress admin pages.

    Thanks for your help,

    Milan

    Mike,

    How would you set up such a gallery? I have about 1,200 images spread across nearly 2,500 posts.

    Evita,

    I will definitely give that Media Library Gallery plugin a try.

    I tried installing that plugin onto a site running WP 2.7 and I get this error:

    "Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error."

    I am already running PHP 5, as required for the plugin.

    One complication is that I upload thumbnails that are 450 pixels across. The plugin would also need to create smaller versions for the gallery browsing pages.
