    dawsonshepherd – I had the same problem! It took me 3 days to decide to just see what happened if I published it!
    I now want to add captions/info (name of picture, price etc) under each of my images in a gallery. Is that possible?
    Thanks
    Asha

    @dawsonshepherd – The image of a camera is the Gallery placeholder in the Visual Editor. If you preview the post or page, you should see your photos.

    @ashapask – Go to the Media Library and edit each photo with the information you want to add. Do not put anything in the Link URL field of the form because the Gallery feature will just ignore it.

    You can read more about using the Gallery here:

    thanks @justjennifer – probably always a good idea to read instructions first!

    Thanks so much all it works!!! It would just have been useful if the wordpress support page could tell you that you won´t see them until they are published. I have also wasted two days. Anyway many thanks to the community for such quick replies..

    I can’t see anywhere to click to add a group of photos. The only thing appearing on my home page is “insert photo”. I know I’ve added a group before. Not sure what I’m doing wrong.

    Hi you go to the normal way of inserting a photo and you repeat the action with the phtos you want that puts several photos in a gallery for you. Then you save that and then you will see insert gallery. On your screen you will get a picture of a camera and a photo. Don´t worry you will see the photos when you publish the post. Hope this helps
