WordPress comes with a built-in feature that lets you create a gallery. This feature is very basic and does not have many options, but it gets the job done. Follow the steps below to create a Gallery blog post:
1. First, you need to select the blog post format. You’ll find a “Format” module in the right-hand column of your post editor – it’ll look like this:
Make sure to select the Gallery option.
2. On the post edit screen, click on the “Add Media” button to upload your images.
This will bring up the WordPress media uploader where you can upload your photos. You can also select photos you have previously uploaded from media library.
3. After uploading and selecting your images click on the “Create Gallery” link from the left column.
Next, you need to click on the “Create a new gallery” button:
Media uploader will now show your selected images with gallery settings. Once you are done, you can click on the “Insert gallery” button. This will close the media uploader popup, and you will be able to see your image gallery in post editor.
4. You can now save or publish the post, and visit your website to see your image gallery in action.
