Gallery Issues, Need Assistance

    Hi there.

    I am trying to make a gallery for a website. What I want is to

    1. See all the photos in chronological order WITHOUT having to rearrange them manually every single time I upload something new.
    2. Categorize them all so one can view either all of them or certain ones?

    First off, this is not just a little gallery going into one post. This is a gallery that is staying on one page forever, with new photos being added regularly. More of a photo album I guess?


    1. For some reason my current gallery, added to the page using the Add Media –> Add Gallery function on the page, isn’t displaying the pictures consistently. There are supposed to be 3 columns, but for some reason the first couple only fill with a few photos. See here —->

    2. I don’t seem to have the “type” option in the gallery settings. All that comes up is “link to, columns, random order, attachment details”. I tried adding the type into the code bit eg. type=”rectangular” but it did not seem to make a difference.

    3. I don’t have the Image Gallery Carousel section in my media settings.

    Please help me!! I am very very noob at this, totally not code savvy at all, sorry for any inconvenience but I need this to be really explained clearly.

    Thankyou very much.

    The blog I am editing is not under this account, which is the reason why it is not specified. This account is linked to my e-mail, whereas the other one is used by several people working on the blog. We don’t have separate users yet.

    My question/s still requires an answer.

    Many thanks in advance.
