I read an interesting post from timethief answering a question about how to get round the issue of having multiple galleries on a single page with different images on each. It introduced me to using the INCLUDE and EXCLUDE tags within the editor which was great.
So I am putting together a post at the moment. It will have 3 images dotted around as single inserted files, then ideally 4 other galleries with anything from 3 to 7 images in each, all of these being separate of course.
So I use the include function to specify the ones I want in Gallery 1. That works fine. A little bit further down the page I add in new images that I want to be put in Gallery 2, but the only option I have is to update the existing gallery rather than add a new one.
I did deviate a little from timethief's original suggestion. I did not attach all the media to the page at the start, I added in stuff just for ease of management specific to the second gallery later. I used a Menu Order for the first gallery and I also used the INCLUDE rather than the EXCLUDE function in the first one, not sure if that makes a difference.
So the bottom line is can I add in another gallery that I can then specify different criteria for?
