Blog Post Photo Gallery - Is this even possible?
Posted on 2011-04-23
I have had my blog on WordPress for several years and there's always been one thing that I wanted to get working that I have never figured out. I have been hearing great things about SquareSpace so I began my trial yesterday and have started importing my posts over from WP. I was hoping that I'd finally be able to accomplish what I wasn't able to do in WP but now I'm seeing that I still can't do it. My blog is just made up of events that my wife and I get in to. Each post is composed of a bunch of pics and a narrative of what it was we did. I want there to be a single pic at the top of the post and when you click on that pic, the gallery opens in Lightbox and you can then scroll nicely through it. Although I have seen a bunch of posts on SS and WP forums from people trying to accomplish the same things, it does not appear that there has been an acceptable solution to this. I currently use the NextGen Gallery plugin for WP on my blog but I'm not happy with the way it works. I am wondering if there is perhaps a better way to accomplish what I'm trying to do or if I just need to give up. I am more than willing to stay on WordPress if there is a good solution there. I should also mention that I'm not a programmer/web developer.
I appreciate any help that can be lent.
Thanks in advance.
