That’s the point, though. For blog posts, a gallery is not always wanted.
Is there a way to just use the Gallery Upload button to upload the image, using it as the featured image, but NOT displaying a gallery in the post at all?
It seems there should just be a gallery layout option of None.
That way you could still upload an image to use as a featured image for the post’s thumbnail, but not have it show with the post itself if you don’t want it to.
I’ll give that a try. Are you saying it’s the default just for Gallery images? …because you can remove them for image placed in posts.
What would be the opposite be for including only certain categories? (as opposed to excluding specific ones)
Also, could I duplicate template-blog.php to something like template-press.php to load as a template with another specific set of post categories?
Would I be able to for instance then duplicate index.php, call it ‘page-press.php’ with the template part string of “get_template_part(‘template’,'press’);” to load said template as an alternate blog page?
Or is there just a way to pass an overriding query to the page-press.php page that includes the standard template-blog.php file?
