share galleries between posts and pages

  1. jack randall

    this may have been covered before but i can't seem to find it.

    it would be really useful if it was possible to use images used to create a gallery in a post to also create a gallery in other posts and pages without having to re-upload them to the new content to create the new gallery.

    if it's already possible to do this could someone let me know as i can't figure it out!

    you can do this using the [gallery] shortcode already.


    example, [gallery id="123"]

    There are plugins to help do this, but they are vague about what's actually happening. (one image, two database entries -- what happens when you click Delete Permanently?)

    What about having a product (e-commerce theme) with several images in it's gallery and sharing that images with the other products, being able to select wich ones I want to use without having to load the images into the gallery and typing again the "alt", "title", etc...

    Can you tell me of a plugin that helps doing this?

    We call it WordPress :)

    The new Media Manager in 3.5 makes this a LOT easier, Albert.
