Is it possible to unattach pictures from a post?

  1. Hi,

    I am currently trying to re-organise a section of my blog that has become rather large.
    The page in question is this one: http://retrovgm.wordpress.com/custom/wallpapers/

    As you can see there are a rather lot of pictures contained within this page.
    I would like to re-organise the pictures into sub-sections (the pages are setup just not visible yet).
    I need a way to unattach the pictures currently there so that I can then reattach them to the new page.

    Does anyone know how this can be done? (Preferably in bulk!)

    Blog: http://retrovgm.wordpress.com
    Theme: Selecta by Obox

    Thanks,

    Dave

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

  2. Hello there,
    If you do want the attachment page, you have to re-upload the images: there's no other way to "attach photos to two posts". When you are about to insert an image, you get three options - see here: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/04/26/images-the-three-link-options/ You can select None or File URL. You can read about unattached images here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/unattached-files/

  3. P.S. As already uploaded them, you'll have to edit the images one-by-one. http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/ The best think to do is put them in a single folder on your computer, highlight them all and rename them before you bulk upload images to a photo gallery. This is an excellent resource on Galleries and image management.

  4. Thanks for the replies.
    It is a shame there isn't a way to manage them better :(
    Well, I will just have to delete them and then reupload into the sub-pages.
    Perhaps WordPress should consider adding the ability to unattach pictures!

    Thanks,

    Dave
