WordPress Gallery Plug in (8 posts)

    I am using a basic WordPress Gallery on my site and offer the option to download an image with the basic "click on image" and "save image as" basically because i'm not very technical.

    Is there an option to add a "download" button/link to either the thumbnail or image in the gallery?

    I have searched for some time but others that have asked the same question have had no answers.
    Heres one example page of how things appear at the moment but it is very unprofessional (as i am at this stage, but willing to learn)

    Not in the basic core Gallery, no. You'll need to look for a suitable gallery plugin.

    I'm barking up the same tree here and this Gallery plugin isn't doing it. What I, and I assume the OP, is after here is a plugin that let's us take images already uploaded to our wordpress install and use those to create galleries. So if I have 1.jpg 2.jpg and 3.jpg in my media library I can make a gallery of 1.jpg and another gallery with 1.jpg and 2.jpg and another gallery with all of the images. All using the images already uploaded through my wordpress backend to add ot the galleries..

    Instead what we get is plugins that force us to upload images again and don't let us access the wordpress media library at all. At most we can import objects into the gallery by specifying their directory but why on earth are we being forced down this convoluted path when the plugin should just bring up our media library with all of our images already uploaded and say 'which ones do yuo want in which gallery?' . This is such a simple and such a common sense move that I have to assume I am missing something and that this is possible. Can some one please point me in the right direction? thanks

    Hi Folks,

    I am trying to change just 1 image on my site. The Gallery features seem incredibly non-user friendly and complicated.

    You can see on the above link there is an image on the right of some Tibetan prayer flags, field, etc. Basically, I would like to put my logo into that spot OR put my log into the upper right corner of the Title and Tag Line.
    How do I do that? I have searched high and low on the editing page and cannot figure it out.

    Many thanks for any help!

    I think this is part of your chosen theme's options but as you are using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme's vendors.

    And next time, please post your own topic.
