[resolved] Uploading Images causing Duplicates in Media Folder (3 posts)

    Is there another way of adding images to a gallery apart from uploading from my computer. Many of the images I want to use in a gallery I already have in my wordpress media section. When I upload images from my computer that I already have in the media section, it creates duplicates of the images.

    As I am using different images on different pages I don't want to delete any of the duplicates as I'm not sure where they are being used.

    Thanks

    Ben

    I'm guessing you hit the Red Button that says "Upload Media". At least that's what happened when I hit that button. Up at the top of the page there's a button that says "Add Media" and you have the option of getting that media from your Media Library.

    The way I cleaned up my library was by comparing the time added.

    Hope my experience helps, I came here trying to figure out why I've got each image twice in my galleries. I'm in the same boat as you - I'm just trying to make it work for me.

    Thanks sjmcdonald for your response. I tried the "Add Media" button but this only seems to allow me to insert images into the body field of the gallery, or set a featured image. I want to be able to add images to the images section of the gallery post.

    The gallery post was a custom content type created by the gallery plug in I'm using. You can see a screenshot of it here.
