Would like multiple image uploads per post (gallery) (6 posts)

    Hi, I'm looking for a plugin that will add an image upload field to the post edit screen. When an image gets added another field appears below it to add another image if the user wishes and this is infinite. The list of uploaded images are sortable and not constrained by quantity. I would also like the ability to pull these in at template level, in multiple sizes for display using a jQuery slideshow type effect.

    I'm having trouble finding something that will do the above and simply. I don't want this integrated into the standard edit box with a shortcode.

    Can anyone help?

  2. You can add multiple images per post with the flash based uploader.

    Yeah... then insert them into the content box. I don't want this. I want to maintain tight control of images associated to a post and give content editors a simple method to upload X number of images per post then have to do nothing, the template code will take care of the rest. I think it would be more intuitive for the content editors to have a specific image upload field(s).

    I just use the [gallery] short code :) http://codex.wordpress.org/Gallery_Shortcode

    Yes that's precisely what I'm looking to do away with. I don't want content editors to be inserting [gallery] shortcode in amongst content. I want to control the output and positioning of images in the template, only giving the facility to upload (attach), sort & delete images to any given post, ideally as a fields beneath the main content edit box (rather than a modal box as per the media manager).

  6. You may want to look at NextGen gallery, for a starting point then.
