Newbie needs Help - Photo Gallery Plugins (4 posts)

    Hi all,

    Here's a bit of background to my question:

    I'm trying to set up a site about Geo/Chevy Trackers & Suzuki Sidekicks and have made a very rough start using WordPress. You can see what it looks like here: http://Tracker-SidekickHq.com. It's still needs a ton of work to get to where I want it.

    One of the main things that I would like to do is have a photo gallery that users can upload their pictures to and, ideally also add comments.

    I'm not super techie. I can put together simple websites with Frontpage and other software and understand the basics of HTML & tables and stuff like that. I can do simple graphics (the header is one that I put together) and I can find my way around a cpanel and install simple scripts, but that's about where it ends.

    I've read up on the various gallery plugins, and maybe it's because I'm not too techie, but can't seem one that has that capability.

    Then again, maybe it's just that I don't understand all the technical descriptions.

    So, I'm wondering if someone here knows of a plugin that will let me offer image upload and commenting capabilities.

    Or, perhaps can suggest a work around that will accomplish the same end.

    Any comments would be very much appreciated.

    Make it a Great Day!

    'Gallery' by Menalto might accomplish what you want to do. It's a standalone platform so I don't know how much integration has been done with WordPress. It's free and open source. Here's the web site:

    There is a worpress plugin for some integration but I'm not sure if it will accomplish what you're after. Have a look:

    Hope that helps.

    There is a plugin on here called "photo contest" it allows for users uploading, scoring, etc... maybe with some rework that is handy

    Hey,

    Thanks to both for having taken the time to respond. I will definitely check out both options.
