In-post galleries (7 posts)

    Hello,

    I am looking for a way to add "mini-galleries" to individual posts. Adding and positioning individual images is easy enough using WordPress' default functionality, but I want to have several thumbnails, positioned nicely together, that would open a lightbox/slimbox/whateverbox overlay of the full image when clicked.

    What's the best way to do that?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've known about Nextgen gallery for a long time, but I had no idea it can add galleries to individual posts?

    yup... single pics, galleries, or albums

    with various effects, slideshows, etc

    That does sound good, but I can't help but think that perhaps a fully-featured gallery plugin is a bit of an overkill for me.

    Although... if NextGen can add every "mini-gallery" used in individual posts to a separate gallery page where a visitor can browse through them (can it?), that would be perfect for me.

    I forget the structure....but in NGG aren't galleries contained within albums?

    If so, you could put each gallery in its post, then have a page that displays the album, thuis it would show all pics from all galleries contained in that album.

    My advice would be to plug it in and give it a whirl and see what it does, but I'm pretty sure it do what you need

    Thanks, I'll give it a go then.

    NextGen has been around for a very long time, I vaguely remember using it several years ago with early version of WP 2.0. I suppose the fact that it has been around for such a long time and is still actively updated speaks for the integrity of this plugin.
