Gallery insert test

This page is for testing the procedures for loading a gallery.

Note
media has to be in place first before making a gallery. Captions can be changed at any time in the media library as they are reloaded each time the page is called.

Add media library – select images from media at – NZRLS/imageBackUp/ or other folder.
Edit media – add captions from text and a description – Captions go onto both images, description goes on linked (Large) image. They can be added or changed later.
Include this html too at the end of the text in the description box for “Back” navigation.
“<a href=”https://railsoc.org.nz/<URL of this page>/” title=”Back”><blockquote><strong>_Back_</strong></blockquote></a>” – note <URL> is the name of the page of his gallery.
