Help! Gallery Carousel option not there? (5 posts)

    New user - just started using w/latest (ver 3.5.1). Been trying to set up gallery but I do not have the gallery carousel option in settings - media. Was this removed on this release? Or was there a setting option I missed?
    I've tried shortcodes, different themes and even different browsers. I've even created a completely new install in a subdomain (in case I'd messed something up on the existing install).
    Gallery carousel option never appears and I can only get the default grid gallery on posts. No squares, rectangular, circle or slideshow.

    Can anyone help? I've spent 2 days trying to find the answer w/no luck.

    you might need to install the 'jetpack' plugin to have this option in a WordPress.org installation; http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jetpack/

    You sure? I was reading on this link: http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/ and it doesn't mention a need for a plug-in. That's what had me confused.

    I was reading on this link

    that is a WordPress.com link

    is your site with WordPress.com?

    the difference http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    ah... that would explain things then. I'm using wordpress (.org) Never even knew the .com site existed. Got to that link via google search when I was trying to get a slide show gallery like I've seen on other's site. Didn't even notice the difference in layout.
    I have learned something new.
    Thanks for the assistance, it's really appreciated. Going to try that jetpack plugin.

    In the meantime, what other options might someone recommend for nice gallery options? I just don't like the default. I'm limited to free themes I'm afraid.
    Thanks again.
