Reorder Gallery now in WordPress Core

Less than a week ago, I released a new WordPress plugin called “Reorder Gallery” which gave you the ability to change the order of your images when you uploaded them, so that the gallery shortcode would display them in an order of your choosing. Two days later, Matt Mullenweg stopped by to say that it “would be pretty cool functionality for core WP” so I offered to add it in. It’s now done, and you can look forward to seeing it in WordPress 2.6.

So, what’s the bid deal? Well, in the process the jQuery library that WordPress uses was upgraded to 1.2.5, and the jQuery UI was added! This will be good news for any developers that make plugins for use in the admin section of WordPress, or who prefer to use jQuery over Prototype in their plugins.

    Excellent work so far! I find that when i installed the plugin on 2.5, the list shows up fine, but the images are not aligned with the gallery items, thus making it unusable. Have you run into this before? Firefox

    Thanks for all you do!

  2. Earthman: can you get a screenshot or something? Also, try disabling any other plugins you might use and tell me if the problem goes away. I have FireFox on quite a few machines here, and I’m not seeing what you’re describing.
