Gallery Metabox

Description

NOTE: This uses the old media gallery interface, and I have no plans to change this.

I use the WordPress Gallery a lot on websites I build. It’s a wonderful tool, but it’s hard to find. Instead of telling users “Click the first icon next to Upload/Insert, then click the gallery tab”, I created this simple plugin to display all the attached images in a metabox.

It’s also customizable for developers (see documentation).

Throws a PHP error

After updating to WP v4.9 this plugin gave me a PHP error until I added an image and then deleted it. Something about an array expected. Needs attention.

This should be built-in!

I’ve only played with it a little bit so far but it looks exactly like what I was looking for.
I’m honestly surprised WP does not have that functionality built-in.
