I have tried several times to upload more than one picture int he "Show & Tell Gallery", but for some reason it will not upload more than one.  I figure you must be able to do it since others have more than one photo.  

Shall I give up or can this be done?  

Thx,  Cherie

Hi Cherie,

It is my understanding that if you want to upload multiple pictures to the gallery, you have to upload them individually. Instead of selecting all of them and putting them in at once. Select one and upload it. Then repeat the process for the next picture. I know this is more time consuming, but it is the limitation of our site at this time. Thank you for your question!

Best,

QCA Rachel

I tried that and it just replaced the picture that I had there originally rather than adding a 2nd picture.  I did figure out how to add them to the post.  You click on insert media.. But that just adds it to the post where the words are and not in a photo gallery.

  • Cherie. You need to save the post to the gallery. Then add a new one.

If you want to place photos under the same heading add the first one where it says "specify file /URL" then add additional photos where you would type text using the filmstrip icon.

if you're adding unrelated photos, instead of choosing "save" choose "save and upload more".

Thanks, I did as you said and it worked out beautifully.  But it doesn't show all the pictures in the "View as slide show".  It only shows the first one that I added using the "specify file/URL.  I don't know, it seems like this site is not very user friendly.. I am usually pretty good at this stuff.

Yes Cherie, the slide show only includes the main photo in each topic. A pain, I know.
