Huffpo Style Image Gallery Needed (6 posts)

    I've been digging through the extensions but can't find what I need - but I'm sure it's probably already out there.

    We have a number of images in a category, each with a thumbnail, a larger version and a caption. We made a bit of custom code that displays the first entry from that category on the home page. When you click from the home page, it goes to that category and you can see all the images that have been put up. It works as a "Picture of the day" feature.

    However, we are looking to increase page views by having each picture from that category appear as it's own page. So, when you click the photo on the home page, it goes to the first picture in that category... then no other ones would show up, until you clicked next and it went to the next page, displaying the next picture from that category and probably a new ad.

    Is there an extension that already does this? Or can I fudge it from within WordPress? Note that the user intends to eventually have a ton of photos in there.

    Wondering this as well. If there is a way to also pull the images from flickr or picasa?

    We were able to start with this:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/featured-articles-lite/

    and modify it somewhat to fit out needs. be careful with it, as it deletes any custom theme for itself when it is updated. Make a copy of your theme (for the plugin) and put it in your wp-content folder so you can replace it after each update.
