Media Gallery - can't we have separate galleries, each with different content? (5 posts)

    Oops -- just saw another weird effect.

    [a] I'm trying to use the WordPress media "gallery" function with images. I uploaded 25 pics and made a small gallery on one page.

    [b] I much later inserted a WordPress logo into the top of a page, only to find it comes out with a border around it that I can't get rid of...


    [c] And now I've just noticed that the little logo was ALSO automatically added to my media gallery! WTF! Q.: Does this mean there is only ONE galley possible, containing ALL media... because I wanted to make separate galleries for each kind of template.... Don't tell me I'm gonna have to stop using the media gallery, and go back to setting up thumbnail post-pages one at a time by hand! ???

    Use the include and exclude options in your gallery shortcode.

    Hi, this is interesting, thank you. However, all the auto-generated media pages with each image in it have no option I can see to add that media-post to a category or give it tags. I count on the categories to auto-create pages for a range of specific themes for my visitors. And I count on the tags so they can find specific themes by values like name, color, number of columns, etc.

    Also, the auto-generated media posts appear to bypass the design command to add a certain kind of border around images. For me, that's part of the look of my pages, which is available for posts and pages but strangely not for media pages. So I am probably gonna have to do all this manually, and individually create the image-posts in order to get my desired outcome.

    But I will keep the gallery information in mind for future, thank you very much.

    Does anybody know if the gallery function works with other types of documents?

    I would love to be able to upload a slew of pdf, swf or flash documents and have a page for each auto-generated with the document embedded in it on display. Boy, would that be fantastic.

    Right now, we are dependent on outside hosting systems that change their format and look beyond our control, i.e., scribd and calameo for two.

    I would love to be able to easily and quickly host my own documents my way, and have my own design. Any WP programmers out there, please keep it in mind! Thanks.
