[resolved] attach image to multiple posts (5 posts)

    is there any way to attach an image to multiple posts?

    by definition, one image can only be attached to a post, the one who displays it, but is there any way to roundtrip this through the use of post meta-data or any other methods so that the same image goes back to 2, 3 or any other number of posts?

    thanks in advance ;)

    One way is to use the img quick tag in the HTML post editor and use the File URL (found when editing a media item in Media Library).

    hey, thanks for the quick response :)

    i get what you mean, but what i'm looking for is a real connection between one image and two or more different posts, so that, for instante, i could have that same image in two different galleries, each one associated to a specific post.

    we could take this even further with the advent of custom post types where such may be indeed helpful

    I think that's something they might do eventually. Guess you might look at some gallery plugins--maybe they do that. NexGen Gallery seems popular.

    the gallery was more of an example rather than my goal. but i've been thinking about it and i can probably achieve what i need through the use of custom taxonomies and taxonomies meta-data.
    but thanks for your help, i'm trying to explore all possible scenarios ;)
