    If you don’t want to make filders to store your images, please try another Gallery plugin. Eazyest Gallery is built around images in folders and subfolders.

    Unfortunately, I can’t find any other plugin that pulls from your folders and the whole reason I stumbled upon this one is because they are all already uploaded.

    And the only reason I could use folders is if the root folder was an option, but it’s not 🙁

    Thanks for the reply though–I guess I’ll keep looking.

    @emi, simply you could create 1 subdirectory, put all your images in that one and share that one

    @klihelp Not an option. Images are randomly pulled from there for a random picture and all screenshots in every post as well. That would involve over 400 URL changes. And I would rather not upload every image twice either.

    Someone suggested having it so if the random picture was clicked, they could see all the screenshots so I was looking for something that would pull automatically over having to make a gallery of 400 pictures with a number getting bigger everyday.

    Have you tried Lazyest Gallery?
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/lazyest-gallery/

    Emi, how did you resolve this?

    I didn’t :/ I ended up giving up…

    Did you tested from the beginning with this plugin?
    like
    – have an empty gallery than
    – add an Example folder
    – add images to the folder
    – use [eazyest_gallery folder=”Example”] shortcode in your page

    As I said, I already had the images in the folder that I wanted… I wanted to set it to show all the images from that folder. It’s a folder in a subdomain so there’s the root, the subdomain folder, and then the folder I wanted it to show the pictures from

    Thank you for adding the important part –

    First you want the plugin to index existing images from the hosting server directory into the WordPress database:
    – this directory can be set in the plugin settings page, but this need a main gallery folder.
    – Main gallery folder can have one or more subdirectories.
    – These subdirectories and their images and will be indexed into WordPress database as Gallery Folders and it’s attachments
    – Visit the main Eazyest Gallery admin page to see the list of indexed subdirectories
    – the Folder Gallery page url will look like this:
    http;//main_wordpress_website_link.com/chosen_gallery_slug_name/sub_directory_name/
    – attachment image source like this:
    http;//main_wordpress_website_link.com/chosen_gallery_slug_name/subdirectory/the-image.jpg

    If your WordPress website is also on a subdomain, and the same subdomain as the image links, than it should work.

    – Subdomain Gallery links would be
    http;//subdomain.main_wordpress_website_link.com/chosen_gallery_slug_name/sub_directory_name/
    – attachment image source like this:
    http;//subdomain.main_wordpress_website_link.com/chosen_gallery_slug_name/subdirectory/the-image.jpg

    Read the above steps carefully if you could do it, because there is no other option, like WordPress is not in subdomain, but images are in subdomain …
