Please - Pictures In Sidebar? (5 posts)

    I'm not up to speed on all the technical terms, etc, I need some very basic, clear help, please :)

    What I want to do: have a folder full of pictures I choose and upload to my server. Have thumbnails of those appear via widget on my sidebar. Random if possible.

    For Flickr, I think I'd have to upload all the pictures I want to use - some are not my own - and don't care to have them public on there. So, I want my own control.

    So, is there a way to do it that even I can understand? I throw myself on your mercy.

    you really should find a plugin for this (and read the descriptions closely to make sure it does what you need), start here:

    You can use a plugin - check out the plugin directory (click extend on the menu bar on this site). just search for gallery, photo or something like that and pick your favorite!

    /e: too slow...

    I've looked -- and it seems to be made up of Flickr addons -- which won't do since my choice of pictures must be public on Flickr and therefore can be censored/restricted. The other options seem really arcane and not explained well -- gallery 2 which seems to have written their instructions as if one already knew everything about it and didn't need the instructions to begin with!

    I suppose what I'm saying, in frustration, is can anyone suggest a specific cure or plug in that can simply plug in photos into a sidebar, no massive brain surgery required, I'd appreciate it!

    Well, I use this: http://familypress.net/photopress/
    There is always a bit of work with plugins like that.
