  • Hey guys,
    Loving the WP2.5 photo gallery! I like how we can now INSERT GALLERY and it makes a quick and nice photo gallery. However, I have a question:

    How would we make “albums” using this tool? For example, I want to upload 2 photos to represent 2 photo albums: BEHIND THE SCENES ALBUM and OFFICIAL MOVIE SCENES to a page, then have each album be a collection of photos that fit in that album.

    Make sense? What would the workflow look like? Thanks for any tips!

  • Not possible at the moment. Each post can only have 1 gallery.

    Create one main category = gallery and subcategories for your albums. With own templates to fit your needs. Look at my gallery – a bit coding and it looks like a real gallery, navigation included.

    Yeah, you’re right Evita. It’s important to note that the organization needs to be different to execute this, at least different from what Skunker is trying to do.

    You’ll need to upload each set of photos that you want to show up in the [gallery] into a single post. Each post will be a unique gallery. Mark each gallery post with a Gallery category. Create a gallery category template and with a new loop in the template you can list all your galleries in order. See:

    I had a more complex need as I have have posts and photos that go together. My posts are longer and sometimes I have a lost of photos. I also didn’t want to gallery collection to link to the post and show text, just the photos. I cam up a with a simple hack that *filters* out the photos or the post depending on where the post is viewed. Here is my hack

    Good luck
