photos on pages

    I am trying to put more than one gallery on a page. The problem is that I can’t figure out how to make a gallery number two. The first gallery I successfully made but when I upload another image to use elsewhere on the page it automatically goes into the gallery. I can’t seem to place an image on this page without the image going into the gallery… and I can’t make a second gallery. Is there a way to put two galleries (or one gallery and then multiple different pictures) on a single page?

    The blog I need help with is



    Hi. If you simply use the code [gallery], then yes, the gallery will display all images currently attached to the post or page in question.

    I believe you can insert more than one gallery, or exclude/include images by modifying the shortcode and using the “attachment IDs” for each image. More info on the support documentation:



    You can put more than one gallery on a Page / Post

    Make Post with first Gallery

    Make scratch Post with 2nd Gallery (save as draft)

    Edit (html mode) 1st Post and add Gallery code from 2nd Gallery Post – [gallery id = "xxx"] xxx = Post id number (mouse over the Post in the edit Post area and you should see the number. You are using some Gallery Short Code –

    Test Post with 2 galleries:

    Sorry could not find the reference page – might be on Panos site.



    Not the Official Gallery FAQ

    Any Galleries appearing on a Page or Post have to be published. If you link to a draft post, should anyone click on a thumbnail it will return a “404-not found” error.




    Clarification: the post whose ID you use must be a publicly published one – the gallery you borrow from such a post doesn’t have to be inserted in that post.

    Also note that auxclass’s mistake is probably due to the fact that logged-in administrators and authors don’t get 404s if they use a draft post: only visitors do.



    Sorry about the almost – down side to being logged in as an admin.



    The Post I borrowed from had been published as a test – one could probably set a new Post date way in the past and use the Read More so the Gallery would be hidden.

    Thanks for the correction.



    @auxclass – I’ve actually done that for a few test Gallery posts on my a/m photography blog. The navigation gets wonky if you use “attachment pages” rather than images, so that is a consideration.



    Que alguien me explique que le paso a todas mis fotos de mi blog anterior… abri esta cosa y el mensaje de invitacion decia que se pasaban automaticamente mis fotos de mi espacion en windos live….osea… yo de mensa ahi voy lo hago y ahora no hay ni nadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

    Que alguien me ayude, por fis :(


    Foros espaƱoles:



    It’s not worth it. Just use a separate page for each gallery and one main page as an index for each page/gallery.

    I know there are some gifted people who have exquisite photo galleries on WP but I had to find what worked for me. Maybe someday :)
