Multiple Image Upload Question


Best Answer Danny , 25 April 2013 - 12:06 PM

To be honest, the simplest method is to upload the images and position them using the visual editor (for the non-techie) in my opinion. I am unaware of any simpler method unfortunately.

 

I would ask this question on the Wordpress support forums, as this is more of a Wordpress issue than a theme/framework issue and they may be able to point you to a plugin.

Dear all

 

For a while now I have held back doing all my websites in WordPress because the image upload system is just still a bit clunky in my mind. My clients are car dealers and they want to upload up to 15 images per car or post if you like, and they want to do it in one go. I have had coders create bespoke sites for this, but I would love it if I could create a site for my car clients fully in WordPress.

 

What I want to achieve is something like this visually a bit like this, see attached, its also quite like the Ebay image uplaod system. A new area in the Add Post area that just allows users to add photos in the order they appear. No creating galleries first or having to paste links etc.

 

The end product is this page, see link. Images displayed for the post with the user only having gone to the post to upload.

I have been able to achieve this in part with a Quickslider, but I can't get a carousel of thumbs underneath. Maybe there is a way to do this?

 

Moving forward I would like create a standard template for all cars dealer type businesses. So some kind of reusable plugin or section would be great. Is there anything like this available? or being developed? And if not, would any PL pros be able to do it?

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

You can upload several or more images at once with the Wordpress add media uploader (see image)

You can even add multiple photos at once by simply clicking on the images whilst holding either shift or Ctrl.

If you wish to have a similar slider like the one linked in your post above, I would recommend you take a look at Nextgen Gallery or Responsive gallery in the PageLines store.

 

Not sure what you mean by standard template for car dealerships ? You're free to create your own template and sections for your car dealerships template.

Hi Danny, thanks for your response. I realise I can load lots of images at once with WP but its allocating them within a post thats tricky. I have no problem with it, but my non internet savy clients who have no time to spare want it super quick and simple, which is why I have built them custom sites so far so I have control over how images are handled.

 

What I'm after is to be able to add a new post, and from that 1 page load 15 images, (the first being the main image and the featured image), type in the title and text and hit publish. And for the end product to have a main image (1st one added) and a carousel of images below. 

 

From what I can see of NextGen, I would have to create a Gallery first, then go to the post. That will be a step backward for the client who is use to controlling everything from one page.

 

From what I can see of Responsive Gallery, you can't control the size of the images which would be a problem. Not sure exactly how it looks in the CMS as well. Any screen shots?
