Currently, there is no standard way on how to handle post which is on gallery format. Nevertheless, I would wish to know what is the best approach here.

Cheers!

I’ve experimented with a few methods, post attachments, individual image uploads. I’ve found the best solution is a batch upload metabox, where users can quickly upload images, you grab the URLs into an array and build a gallery with it.

Though some would argue that post formats shouldn’t use external metaboxes, in which case you’d want to build a system using the_content and the WordPress gallery short code :)

I think I’ll follow your advice as there are no robust way to get the images in the gallery shortcode and display it in a slider with out deleting the images of gallery shortcodes. A meta box would do the job.

Thanks :)

Like PixelGrade said though, have a read of the suggestions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Formats#Supported_Formats
