    Hi Everyone, just started customising WP about a week ago and am really getting the hang of it so far, got to grips with wp_query and meta-keys and the like so going well :)

    What i can't seem to work out at the moment is how to do this:

    I want a gallery page (havn't decided whether this should be post or page yet) that has a load of thumbnails which when clicked pop up the full size lightbox version... fine with this no problem, but on the home page of the site (index.php) I would like a "featured gallery" box which contains thumbnails (to once again pop up the lightbox image) of ONLY the 6 most recently posted images.

    I can't get my head around this dilemma as the only solution i can see is to have a whole post per image, and a thumbnail as a meta key but that doesn't seem particularly suitable...

    any ideas? i'm sure its been done before but i can't for the life of me find a solution...

    many thanks :)

    Have you tried using NextGEN Gallery? It has a widget etc. It's a great plugin. Maybe it'll make it easier for you.
