Do you want to add multiple image galleries within post on WordPress powered website or blog? Till now, we had to restore to workarounds of using relevant plugin or building manual gallery code. However, with new WordPress 3.5 (and above) creating multiple photo galleries only involve few mouse clicks. New media manager in WordPress allows you to create, insert and add multiple galleries within WordPress post and pages.
