Last tweaks done

To make things more consistent I’ve finished renaming all the galleries, now they are called “Fractal Gallery XX” instead of just “Gallery”. The reason for this change is quite obvious when you think about searches in Google for fractals and image galleries. Also, another page for the galleries 21 to 30 was added to the main menu. It seems that it’s the preferred way to browse and find the images, as it’s not easy to go through all the posts to find the galleries, and the search and tags isn’t very precise (it’s not the right word though) at times and gives more results than you would like to visit if you are looking just for an image gallery. If a post is tagged with “image” or “fractal” or “gallery” (lots of posts have the first two tags) it will appear in the same search along with the actual gallery posts. Tags are really strange… I’ve also just found that in WordPress the tags for the images in the image galleries aren’t the same as tags used in posts and are in fact different entities, like for example the tag “abstract” that appears in a lot of images in the galleries, but it isn’t listed in my most used tags list. In fact, it has zero entries in posts, so making a search like “abstract fractal” won’t return any results… same happened with some other relatively important tags, like “3D/3-D”.

Related images

I was in the gallery plugin settings page and I found this option to turn on “related images”. Enabled now. It seems funny, it shows images related to any post (in some sort of a post “footer”), not just posts about/with images, according to the tags of the post(s) and the images tags. The image names don’t show up (but the alt text appears when you hover), neither there is some sort of “label” to indicate that these images are somehow related to the post, but I think you can guess that the images are sort of related sometimes. I think it can be fixed with some customization of the gallery template, I’ll check that later. It’s interesting because sometimes a boring long rant can get enhanced with a couple images, it’s like a treat or a gift. So far it’s set to display 5 related images, but sometimes it doesn’t display any or just one or two images, it’s all based on the tags and the post’s subject. And sometimes it doesn’t seem to have anything at all with the post, go figure.

PS. Just found that the images are replaced with new ones every time you reload the page. I guess this happens if there are more than 5 images that are “related”.
