I have an existing Wordpress website. I need the "Add New Post" page modified so there is an additional option in the "Upload/Insert" toolbar: "Add Photo Gallery". The purpose of this tool is to make it extremely simple to upload a series of images (i.e. Senior Citizens, amongst others, will be using this tool as part of a community information website when it is complete). Instead of having to click “insert into post” under each image that has been uploaded I need a single button that publishes all images to the post with the one click.
The images should be displayed in grid format to keep things looking uniform. Thumbnails should be automatically created on upload just like they currently do in the single image upload area where the user has the option of adjusting the crop of the image if need be.
The width of the grid should be 100% with each thumbnail image being 130px wide x 100px high. This way the size of the photo gallery will fill the page regardless of the size of the page and the number of thumbnails per row will adjust automatically.
There will need to be a reasonable cap on the number of thumbnails displayed per page, perhaps 5-6 rows of images. The traditional page navigation at the bottom of the set of thumbnails is acceptable (i.e. First Page, Previous Page, Page 1, Page 2, Page 3..., Next Page, Last Page).
When the visitor clicks any thumbnail the full size image should popup just like it does on this site: [url removed, login to view] including the navigation (i.e. next/previous image). I have the source files for this particular code if it makes the job easier for the winning bidder.
The usual stuff goes without mention: cross compatibility across all browsers is a must, code must be clean, efficient and fast-loading, etc.
If you need any further info just let me know via PMB. Thanks :)
