Galleries

  1. Hello-

    Is there any premium upgrade that has different photo gallery options?
    thnx!

    The blog I need help with is edoll.wordpress.com.

  2. Or there any favored Premium Themes favored for art not photography?
    Thanks!

  3. Maybe it would help if you could be a little more specific about what you want to appear in a gallery.

    Regardless, why not try browsing the Art tag and see what themes others are using. http://en.wordpress.com/#!/read/topic/art/ You'll have to click each post title in the Reader to get to the actual website.

  4. Yes thank you, sorry I wasn't specific. Gallery styles in general seem limited but they mostly seemed geared towards Photography, kinda flashy and slidey. Looking for something plain and simple geared towards painting (in my case) illustration, etc.
    I like WP so much but thats one feature I haven't found a great deal of variety for.

    Thanks!

  5. First, all WordPress.com themes support the Gallery feature. You don't have to use it to show images, but, if you do, they all default to the Carousel layover if someone clicks on a thumbnail.

    Post Sliders are a feature of only certain themes (24 currently available). http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/post-slider/

    Maybe you want to look at minimal themes http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/styles/minimal/

    The nice part is that you can live preview any theme with your content in the Dashboard>Appearance>Themes to try on different themes before choosing one.

    I still recommend having a look at other themes tagged with Art just to get an idea of what others are using.

  6. Hi Jen,

    Thanks, yes I use a gallery feature currently just don't really like it.
    I have done all of those searches except Art so I will do that next, thank you.Even though I love some things about WP that's just an area as of now lacking, it's worth sticking to my WYSIWYG hosted site for now unfortunately....Hope they expand those options soon...thank you so much again!

  7. With over 200 themes available, I'm sure you can find something to suit you. :)

    By the way, the native Gallery is a lot more versatile than it first appears. You might want to have a look at a demo site I've set up. http://agallerydemo.wordpress.com/

  8. :) I'm going to check out the tutorial, perhaps that's just what I'm missing. Thank you lady!!
