Hoping someone can set me straight here… I have applied the DK Theme to a wordpress 3.4.2 installation for a carpenter client of mine. I’m trying to create a page (“Siding”) which contains a gallery, where the gallery utilizes the DK gallery look/feel (visual change on hover, lightbox-style open in foreground with caption, etc.) However, I can’t seem to figure out how to do this. Here’s what I have now: http://fl.backwoodscompatible.com/services/siding/

I created the page, and then I added 9 photos using the traditional WP gallery option. So the above link is showing that. The “Template” setting for this page is “Gallery 3 columns.” When I go to Edit Page, the sidebar has an option called “Content Gallery” – but that drop-down list is blank. How can I get my 9 exterior siding photos to appear as a choice in that “Content Gallery” drop-down?

You can see that at the BOTTOM of my current page, I’m getting the nice DK-style c-column gallery of ALL photos I’ve uploaded. I don’t want to see all those photos. But I do want THAT style of thumbnail/lightbox. Make sense?

Finally, when I am in the wp-admin console, I have a left menu section/widget entitled “Galleries.” Does everyone have this? Is this a part of core Wordpress? I can create a new gallery in here. But Clicking “Add New” to add images does not work. Clicking the “Add New” button does absolutely nothing. I turned off my pop-up blocker, so that’s not it. Did this Galleries area of wp-admin come with core Wordpress or did it come with DK theme install? I feel like IF i could build my gallery in here, and add photos to it, THEN I could select it from my Siding page “Content Gallery” drop-down. In fact, I tried. I created a new gallery called Siding Gallery. And it DID then show up in that drop-down. But because I am unable to add photos to this gallery via the “Galleries” section (http://fl.backwoodscompatible.com/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=gallery).... they never show up on the Page.

Sorry for the lengthy post! Hopefully this makes sense. Thanks in advance for any input!!!

-Greg
