[resolved] Shortcode use vs. simple links (2 posts)

    Could you explain/give examples of how you implement use of this shortcode? What is the advantage over simply linking to an image in your media library? I'm obviously missing something.

    Thanks!

    Hi Dan,

    Sorry for the delay, the support system never sent a notification.

    Using links within the content editor can get a bit tedious when there are many links are large amounts of content, hence this plugin provides a nicer interface to keep your images "separated" from the content editor.

    This means there's only one shortcode which you can move around, especially handy when the WP editor's formatting goes crazy. This plugin also groups the images in an array so if you were a developer you could easily rig it to show the images in a slideshow, lightbox etc.

    Let me know if you have any more questions. I just released a nicer solution to this plugin and it works for all post types http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-image-gallery/
