    Hello,

    I would like members to be able to add a featured image to a new gallery when they create it. How would this be possible?

    Thank you.

    Hi Becky,
    Thank you for the question.

    Can you please tell me if you mean Cover image by the featured image? Or is it something else?

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Brajesh,

    Cover image would work as the Edit Gallery allows you to edit or delete the current cover image, so changing it to a featured image would probably cause me all kinds of PHP headaches.

    I want to be able to add the cover image, or the first image to the gallery, through the gallery creation form.

    This would be similar to adding a featured image when you create a new post. My thinking on galleries having actual featured images is that when you delete the cover image, it removes it from the gallery too, which can be a bit confusing for the end user. By using a featured image, deleting it wouldn’t effect any of the images in the gallery.

    Again though, this is a rather small thing that’s generally easy enough to deal with so actually converting cover image to featured image isn’t necessary, just the ability to upload a cover image during gallery creation.

    Thank you,
    Becky
