i want a photo grid - each photo clicks through to its own text page

  1. How do I do this? I want a nice-looking photo grid/gallery on one of the pages on my blog. You click on each photo to the person's individual story. The grid would get bigger and bigger over time.
    Thanks for any help!
    I have the Ryu theme with the custom option/CSS.

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

  2. You create a static front page for your blog with an HTML table in it, and in that table you place the appropriate images, each linked to a post, and you update the table over time.

  3. How do I do an HTML table? Oh man, I'd pay someone to do this for me. Hint.

  4. It's not hard to do at all. See here if you do want to create HTML tables http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2013/04/09/table-coding-for-wordpress-com-users/

  5. Thank you! Very kind of you.

  6. You're welcome.

  7. You can do this by using the Gallery feature, as long as you don't mind adding your text to the description field of each photo after uploading. Description fields can hold a *lot* of text. See here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/

    To see an example of what I mean, click on the first image (yellow flowers) in this post http://agallerydemo.wordpress.com/2011/03/05/in-the-beginning-there-was-a-gallery/

  8. @justjennifer
    Thanks for that excellent suggestion.

  9. This is exactly what the Gallery excels at, so I was glad to assist.
