It would be great if we could output an entire Photo Album as if it were an Image Gallery!

Currently it is not possible to display the contents of a Photo Album onto a page as if it were an Image Gallery. This is unfortunate as, in my experience, maintaining a large Image gallery in its shortcode is CPU and RAM intensive and does not perform well on servers with limited resources whereas the Photo Album custom post is MUCH EASIER for my clients to edit and maintain. Plus an album is easy to reuse where ever you want to place it.



MY SUGGESTION IS TO ADD A FEATURE TO THE IMAGE GALLERY SHORTCODE …

to select a source feed for images to be either a specific photo album post or photo album category!!!

Thank you.

Great idea! I find the Image Gallery element troublesome and the default Wordpress Gallery also doesn’t cut it. This would be a great way to take what you already have (Photo Albums) and make it even more useful!
