Featured Galleries

Do you like giving posts a Featured Image? Try out a Featured Gallery. It's like a Featured Images ... except as many images as you want.

What is the point of this?

I was tasked to update a Featured Projects page for a client website. Projects were a custom post type, and the page displaying them used a special WP_Query. Each Project had a featured image. The client wanted each to have several images that could be clicked through with arrows. I couldn't find an easy way to accomplish this, so I built it from scratch. A friend suggested I abstract it into a plugin to share.

Will it be improved?

Possibly. Do you have any suggestions? What I'd really like to see is the functionality adopted into the core. We have featured images, why not featured galleries?

Can I place the metabox in both the sidebar and under the editor?

Yes! Turns out there is CSS that lets me changes the behavor of the preview thumbnails depending on the position, so it should look good both in both positions.

Can I add a featured gallery to my custom post type?

Why yes you can! You don't even have to edit the plugin to do so. There are details on how to do this in the Instructions.
