    Question….how can I take a gallery full of like 15 images and put in a title/text between every 5 images to break it up? Is this possible?

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

    No it is not, sorry. You can put text above or below the gallery, but not in between rows in the gallery.

    You are welcome.

    You can do it if you turn your gallery into three separate galleries using the “include” option in the shortcode:

    @panos, wouldn’t that mean the other galleries would have to exist in separate posts or pages that were also published?

    @tsp-no, using includes you can simply use the image ID number to identify in which gallery the image should appear. It would look something like this:
    [gallery include="138,247,538"]
    arbitrary text here: blah, blah, blah
    [gallery include="791,1102,983"]
    blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
    [gallery include="1224,359,472"]
    blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah

    On the other hand, while apparently this works fine for viewing on the web, there does seem to be an issue in the mobile theme https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/1-page-multiple-galleries-mobile-version?replies=1

    Ah, thanks @jennifer. Now I’m clear. I don’t “do” galleries so I’ve not messed with them much.

    @tsp: Your suggestion would be the other way of doing it. And it’s probably more convenient if the number of images is very large.
