If you do a bulk upload then select another photo it will default to random gallery, I've moved them now into your gallery for you, you may need to relink any post you made for them

Regards
Thank you. I can now see them in "My Gallery" and, oddly, the links still work. I'm now on a mission and trying to sort out my galleries. How do I move the photos from "My Gallery" into "Southwark Bridge" gallery please? I've got some in a sub folder to Southbridge that I want to move into the new "parent" Southwark Bridge folder?

Is there ANYTHING we can do to make things clearer for forum newbies? In the past couple of days there have been 2 new members both trying to use the PDF functionality ** on the same thread** !!

https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=49721.0

I'm not sure why, is it just that the "Add image and post to gallery" option isn't obvious enough and needs highlighting? People are seeing the "Attachments and other options" stuff which is for PDFs and trying to use that.   To be fair, I think the other forums I frequent all add images via the Attachments options below the text box.

I agree, it's a bit of a mess.  We've had three lots of 'galleries' on this forum and they've all messed up in one way or another.   :'(

It's very hard, once a gallery has been started, to convert it to the new one and being able to transfer the photo's and all of the information with them.  Most of the developers don't seem to do things just how I want it, and it's incredibly hard to talk to them.....so I haven't for some time.  I'll see if I can get something changed again on here.

Can you all tell me what you'd like changed, and I'll make a note.   :thankyousign:

Just a thought or two, that may help;

1) Move the link "Add image to post and upload to gallery" to below the text entry box so that both image and attachment links are close to each other.  Having them above and below the text entry box almost invites people to miss the images link and select the attachments one.

2) Add a note to the "Attachments and other options" bit to clarify that it's not for images, maybe simply saying "PDFs, etc."

We could just do away with the Gallery entirely - then @rogerdB  would not be able to show any more of his superb pictures!  ;)
