    Hi all,

    I run a dog rescue website http://www.dogrescuecentres.org.uk I am in the process of setting the sight up so that individual dog rescues can use the blog to upload pictures of current dogs looking for home, along with a normal post which will contain the dogs picture and details underneath.

    I have installed nextgen,

    I have made a gallery (no idea why I have or need to do this but I have)

    I have made a photo album (no idea why I have or need to do this but I have)

    I have added a photo to the gallery and then to the album or vice vera (no idea why I have or need to do this but I have)

    As you can tell I have "no idea" why I am or need to do these things, none of it makes any sense! I want the dog rescues to be able to login and add a picture to the post, can you please tell me how I go about this using this plugin? it has to be VERY simple as alot of dog rescue's have never made a post let alone uploaded a picture and then posted one!

    Many Thanks

    You don't need a plugin to do that. If you want add pictures to the posts use the WP default add media from editor or from media gallery (and then assign it to the post), and for details you can use captions.
    If you want a gallery, use the WP default gallery.

    But anyway, if you want nextgen, simply do your galleries from plugin pages, and then add gallery at the post with shortcode, or if you want you can add only single pics from that gallery, you can do it with another shortcode

    But, like I said before, you don't need the plugin to achieve your goal.

    Well I wanted to use nextgen as it has a random featured image widget for the front page which would mean more exposure for the dogs. Seems nothing in WP is simple, have just wasted a silly amount of money on menu plugins from codecanyon that I cant get to work. At least with Joomla is does what it says on the tin!

    Many thanks for your help tho.

    Would it help if I offered to pay? I can only afford about $50 , I have no idea how much one would have to pay for this?
