Figure 6.19 The gallery interface lists all the files that have been uploaded to this post.

If you want to change the order, you can do that in either of two ways:

• Click and drag the picture you want to move to a different position. The other pictures move to new places, and the gallery is reordered. Notice that WordPress automatically fills in the Order column after you drop an image in a new position (Figure 6.20).

• Setting the Order column by hand also reorders the gallery. Lower numbers appear before higher numbers.

note

If you have an image file that's attached to the post but don't want it to show up in the gallery, leave its Order column blank.

Figure 6.20 If you want to change the order of a picture in the gallery, you can drag the picture or type an new ordinal number in the picture's Order column.

Clicking a Show link (next to the Order column) expands the settings for the selected image (Figure 6.21). You can change the title, caption, description, or link URL of the image; you can also insert the image into a post by itself.

Figure 6.21 When you click a Show link in the Gallery tab, you get some options to edit and can insert the file directly into a post.

Click the Save All Changes button at the bottom of the Gallery tab (refer to Figure 6.19) to save both the order and the changes that you made to each image. When your galley is ready to go, click the Insert Gallery into Post button to insert the gallery short code—[gallery]—into your post. This code tells WordPress to display your gallery in that post.
