I’ve posted previously about the in-built gallery feature of WordPress,and some of the simple things you can do using the shortcode. With this post I wanted to share a few more tips and some apparently less well-known features such as using multiple galleries on one page.
Multiple Galleries In One Page/Post
In WordPress terms, when you upload images to a specific post, those images are attached to the post and become part of the default gallery for that post which you can insert into your post from the media uploader.
If you only use the media uploader, it would appear that you can only insert one gallery per post – the images you’ve attached to that specific post. But what if you want to include multiple galleries in one post? It doesn’t seem possible using the standard media uploader, but if you use the gallery shortcode you can do it easily. (I describe the basic use of the gallery shortcode here)
