How do I add pictures to my gallery from the media library? (6 posts)

    I have uploaded lots of images into my media gallery and now want to put images in galleries on pages but can't see a way to do it. Is my version of WordPress broken?

    If there is a media gallery it should be easy to just select images to add to a gallery. Maybe I'm just missing the add button or something. Please help.

    Esmi thank you for the links and instructions but it doesn't help. I have already uploaded the pictures into the media library. And labeled everything to help with SEO. I just need a way to use them now in a gallery.

    How do I use them on different pages?

    Did you read the page at the first link? If so, you'll know that a a gallery refers to a set of images attached to a given post or page. If you want to create galleries from random images in your Media Library, you'll need to look for a gallery plugin.

    A plugin is okay if that is the only way to do it.

    It seems silly having a media library we can't actually use as a media library. I hope someone here is able to fix it one day.

    Any names of good plugins or ones that don't effect the load times of WordPress?

    Thank you for your help. I clicked on your http://blackwidows.co.uk site as well ;)

    Wow eShop looks great. Did you make that? I was looking around for a free cart for ages but had almost given up. Great timing. :))))))))))))))

    Tbh, I've never really used any Gallery plugins myself but http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/ is a very popular and well-supported gallery plugin.

    Thank you. :-) It's almost 5 years old now.

    Did you make that?

    I'm the second line developer - mainly handling CSS and usability issues. I also do most of the day-to-day support & documentation.
