Support » Fixing WordPress » Want wordpress.com gallery on my self-hosted wordpress.org site

  • Hello,

    I recently moved my WordPress.com site to a self-hosted site.

    I would like to use the same gallery (and slideshow that pops up when you click a photo) on my self-hosted site.

    Here is my old WordPress.com site:
    http://leebeavington.wordpress.com/photography-2/#

    Here is my new WordPress.org site:
    http://leebeavington.com/wordpress/?page_id=65

    How can I set up my gallery, and the subsequent slideshow, the way it worked on WordPress.com? If WordPress.org does not have this functionality built-in, what gallery/slideshow plugin would closely mimic the WordPress.com version?

    I have searched far and wide for a plugin that will do what WordPress.com did without any additional plugins, but had no luck. I installed several plugins (including NextGen, Lazyest Gallery, Shashin, WP Photo Album, and Smooth Slider) but none of these proved satisfactory.

    Any and all suggestions most appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Lee

  • hi, have you found the solution? I have the same question as yours

    The gallery function on wordpress.com is what I exactly want. I have tried many other plugin on my wordpress.org site and none of them work as well as the gallery on wordpress.com…

    Thanks for the note. Unfortunately, I have yet to find a solution!
    I’ll let you know if and when I do.

    Cheers,
    Lee

    May be you can use the NextGEN Gallery plugin, it offers a lots of options to show photos.

    Has anyone figured this out yet? Same issue!

    That’s enough.
    Everyone please stop bothering the guy who was asking for support in the first place.
