    Hi!

    I am in the process of customizing my page, and I am having trouble getting what I want with the image gallery options.

    What I would like to do is to not have any thumbnails on the page, and, instead, have a “Launch Gallery” button. Is there any way to do this?

    Thanks!

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

    One way to do this is to make an entirely separate page for the Gallery and the “Launch Gallery” button/link will link to it, rather than embedding the Gallery directly in the post or page.

    You’ll then want to use a Custom Menu to keep that separate page out of the navigation menu. See these resources:

    I’m not clear where you want to put your gallery. You could use pagination to make a text (or custom button image) link to a “page 2” on a post or on a page.

    Do you want the gallery in your navigation menu? Are you trying to make a sort of “call out” button?

    You would not need CSS to do what jennifer suggested. Nor would you need it for my idea.

    Great idea, 1tess! I keep forgetting about the pagination option. :)

    Just a thought though that when using pagination, you would still see the “Pages 1, 2” in addition to any special link/button added in the post.
