[Resolved] attach image to multiple posts

  • is there any way to attach an image to multiple posts?

    by definition, one image can only be attached to a post, the one who displays it, but is there any way to roundtrip this through the use of post meta-data or any other methods so that the same image goes back to 2, 3 or any other number of posts?

    thanks in advance 😉

  • One way is to use the img quick tag in the HTML post editor and use the File URL (found when editing a media item in Media Library).

    hey, thanks for the quick response 🙂

    i get what you mean, but what i’m looking for is a real connection between one image and two or more different posts, so that, for instante, i could have that same image in two different galleries, each one associated to a specific post.

    we could take this even further with the advent of custom post types where such may be indeed helpful

    I think that’s something they might do eventually. Guess you might look at some gallery plugins–maybe they do that. NexGen Gallery seems popular.

    the gallery was more of an example rather than my goal. but i’ve been thinking about it and i can probably achieve what i need through the use of custom taxonomies and taxonomies meta-data.
    but thanks for your help, i’m trying to explore all possible scenarios 😉
