You may remmeber a while back you halped me put together some code to automatically add a gallery to a new custom post type I had built for a site. This is working great, however for that site I need to explore some further enhancements.
I’m using the gallery shortcode to display that gallery alongside the post content, so I’m seeing a grid layout. however this layout is not showing enough information about the images it’s displaying. Ideally I’d also like to show a descrption (and possibly a name) for the image.
So I’m looking for suggestions as to how to obtain this.
One though I had, was that I could use the comments as the description:
1. overload the image upload routine so that the user is prompted to add the first comment for the image at the time of upload.
2. overload the gallery grid view so that it also displays an excerpt of the first comment for that image.
Any suggestions if something like this is possible?
Thank you for posting. It seems the me the problem you are facing is how to add the title/description on the upload screen. Is that correct?
At the moment, I don’t see any correct way to do it. The one I can think of is on upload complete, for each media, we show the edit box like on the Gallery’s bulk edit media page. And update it via ajax.
