Do gallery photos have to be hosted by WP?

    Is there any way to take advantage of the various gallery options for posts when my photos are elsewhere (smugmug, but I doubt it matters)?

    I have no trouble adding images individually (using the link for each) but don’t seem to be able to get a gallery going.

    I just wanted to (1) rule out the possibility completely or (2) learn what I’m doing wrong if it is possible.

    Thanks for your insights!

    If you mean the Gallery as defined in this Support doc then the images have to be uploaded to your site for it to work because that’s what attaches the images to the post or page.
