Imagine my delight today to find that WordPress.com has added an official Gallery widget that you can add to any widget area on your site (sidebar or footer). Have a look below to see the new widget in action.
While there’s no official Support doc yet, adding and using the widget is pretty straightforward. Just add it to a widget area, open it and select “Add Images” to choose images from your Media Library and create a new Gallery. Select which Gallery type you want displayed and what the images should link to and save. Couldn’t be easier!
Thank you WordPress.com!
(and Thank You Google Alerts!)
Update: The official Support document is now available!
