Figureing out Photo Galleries!


Postcard #2 Yakima, Washington

I grow with each software project I endevour!  But, ugh, sometimes it gets tiring!  Tonight, I’m looking at several photo galleries for WordPress. So far, I like ZenPhoto the best. Maybe I will keep it.  We’ll see. ~Peg

The above paragraph was written two hours ago, at least! I’ve installed and played with two WP photo gallery plug-in’s and 3  pieces of independent photo gallery software.  So far, I like Gallery 3 best only because it’s the most complete considering it’s ease of use. The bad part of it is that it has NO WordPress integration!

So, here’s a test.  My first Gallery 3 album.  How does this work?
Link to first album

Link to just a photo

Need to figure out just how to insert a photo….

hmmmm — ok, did that two! We are on! It works… I’m stickin’ with Gallery 3.

Now I need a Gallery 3 theme, and to move all this text down! LOL


About PeggyAnn

Professional PC Consultant, Researcher, & avid people watcher, Peggy Ann Rowe started into her genealogical quest at age 15 after watching the mini-series, "Roots" with her parents. This new obsession has fueled her love of history, & study of cultures & societies in every epoch. Today she is 57 years old with four kids who are all grown up (& all have flown the coop). In between her 'gigs' with clients she volunteered at many different non-profits. Former President, Secretary, and Director at Large on the board of the Douglas County Historical Society for 10+ years, and former Secretary at the Cloverdale Historical Society (Sonoma County) for nearly 10 years.

Another goal of this website is to disseminate a message (i.e. education) about domestic violence, child abuse, and all forms of sexual abuse to society at large. The message comes from real experience from the whole spectrum of the violence from sexual abuse by a perpetrator to sexual abuse perpetrated by a husband, to the abuse of children within the family. Peggy has seen it, lived it, and been hurt by it. There will on occasion be details that might be hard for some people to read, and a warning is usually posted at the beginning of the essay so that those who want to turn and not read may do so. The only way to teach and to let others learn what to avoid is to SHARE what happened with every detail necessary to make the point. Thank you.

    This is just me but can you make just the photo open in its own window like the whole album, at least you should be able to within the link itself I guess. I’m just being fussy LOL I hate having to hit back so much to get back to pages. Id rather just have something open in a new window or today a new tab and be able to just close it to get back where I was.
