Gallery slideshow as well as images in the post
I would like to add a slideshow to this page on my site: http://sarahchurcher.com/home-2/about-me
Because I already have an image inserted in the post every time I try to insert the slideshow it includes this image also.
I have tried numbering the images and leaving this image out but it does not work. Is there someway of leaving this image as part of the post but not part of the slideshow?
The blog I need help with is sarahchurcher.com.
If you want to exclude that picture from Gallery then it you can do it. See this > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/multiple-galleries-1?replies=18
But if you want to exclude it from a slideshow then it is not possible.
If you have a published post or page that doesn’t use the Gallery feature (like an About page), use it to upload the extra images that you don’t want included in the slideshow.
Once you’ve uploaded the images, close the uploader, close the post or page that you used to upload the images and reopen the post or page where you want to insert the extra images. Now you can insert them in your post directly from the “Add Media” button>Image Uploader Media Library tab.

Great! Bookmarked it for the future use. :)
I have been having problems with the WordPress Gallery in the media
selector application for some times now and from what I have seen
online, a lot of other people have too. So now I am going to tell you
what I think. The support information for the Gallery feature is not
accurate or helpfull. It does not appear to be possible or practical
to exclude or include certain images from the Gallery and if it can be
done, Support doesn’t make it clear how to find the correct image id
descriptors for the ‘exclude’ command. In any case, it should be
obvious by now to the Support team, that your Gallery feature is not
an enjoyable WordPress feature. I am reluctant to try other web based
galleries such as Cinecopa with WordPress, simply because I think that
the Gallery feature should work better from within the WordPress
website environment. So that’s it. Take it or leave it, but if it’s
leave it, I will be discussing the issue with other WordPress users.
Thank you justjennifer! Worked a treat! :)
