The WordPress Media Library

We all quickly learn how to upload and display images on our posts. WordPress’s Media Library offers even more functionality that can be quite useful. Here’s an introduction to the Media Library giving you a look at some of those features.

I haven’t paid much attention to the attachment page except to notice that it’s an option for linking to your image as you place it into a blog post. For family history sites, this page could be used to describe a photo – and its provenance – in greater depth. By taking advantage of these features, our WordPress blog can become more than just a storytelling platform. It could also be a digital museum and archive for our family treasures.
