    Hi there, You could add multiple gallery widgets, but can you describe a little more about what it is you are trying to do and where you’d like those gallery widgets to appear on your site?

    General set up information for your current theme: https://wordpress.com/theme/twentyfifteen

    Hey,
    Thank you for your reply :)
    Basically I want to add a gallery widget on the left side of my blog, where I can put a drop-down menu of multiple albums from all of different places that I’ve been, in that way, people can choose and click on what album they want to see
    I tried to add the gallery widget and uploaded all of my images into it but couldnt separate into different albums :(

    Hi there @sandratrinh, sorry for the late reply.

    The Gallery widget only allows you to add individual photos to display in the widget itself. There is no option for that widget which will give you the functionality you describe.

    Have you thought about creating Gallery pages to display your photos instead? That would allow you to add a simple text link in your sidebar navigation or a single image in an IMAGE WIDGET linked to the Gallery pages. https://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/image-widget/

    One of the things about the Twenty Fifteen theme is that if the information in the sidebar navigation gets too lengthy, your site visitors need to scroll along it as well as scrolling along your blog posts. Just something to consider.

    Let me know if you need more help with this.

    Hey,

    Dont need to be sorry, super appreciate your help here xx

    Yeah, I definitely saw the cons of using Twenty Fifteen when I was trying to play around with it. Is there any other themes that looks quite simple and has more functions then this theme tho? Which one would you recommend me based on your experience? :) I just want something simple to navigate and I would actually love the sidebar to be on top of the posts rather than on the side

    Thanks heapsssss for your help so far tho xx
