Traditional Thursday #15

One think that I haven’t quite been able to figure out since returning from our hiatus is how to create a collage yet still having the images in the new media manager. Our old site predated WordPress’ image management capabilities so we mostly kept doing things the same way even after it was added. With this one, we’re trying to use the new functionality so its easer to switch themes, add plugins, etc. I would have liked to arrange these pictures in a collage (which used to be one of my favorite things to do) which is what made me thing about it. Anyway, here they are in a gallery. There is always next week.

  1. Can’t help you there, never did the collage. I haven’t even set up the galleries again since I made the move, I guess that’ll have to be a project for later!

    Does the media manager do that for you or do you have to have a plug-in?

    • Kazi: The media manager has pretty good gallery capability. There are plugins which enhance it; but we haven’t found the need to use any of them.

      We’ve always been able to easily copy files to our sever (and do whatever else we want to do) since it’s not shared. So the media manger is a nice-to-have feature rather than a requirement. I know Linux and don’t need any fancy control panel add-ons so our VPS is very affordable.
