    Can you describe how you are importing the rest of the images? The easiest way is to load them all into the external_image_url with pipe | separator between each URL.

    Hi Dave,

    Yep – I’m following these instructions to import from individual url’s, but only the first image is getting added…

    Please test again with latest update and run the ‘convert db’ too. I’ve recoded the conversion function to be far simpler and fewer possibilities of error.

    If it still fails in some cases, please create a ticket and reference this bug report URL.

    I’m going to go ahead and presume this is working for you now.

    If it is not, please raise a bug report again and tell me specifically the theme you are using as well as whether the gallery is present on your post type edit page and whether it’s present on the front end.

    If you are using a custom post type with gallery support, please let us know the theme or plugin custom post type and create a ticket with the theme/plugin zip attached so we can investigate.

    Hi I have similar issue. The gallery images are showing fine on backend but not on front end. Only one image is displaying with my theme ‘Kidz’ on front end. Any suggestions?

      If gallery does not display, ensure you are using DEFAULT gallery in your theme – if you use any advanced theme gallery functionality, quite often they pull the image URLs directly from the database rather than using the default WP functions.

      Please raise a bug if this issue persists – I’m working on External Images next few days.

    I’m closing this bug report and opening a separate feature request.

    There are far too many ways that third party plugins implement their own galleries, so rather than try and cover them all I’ll add a Gutenburg External Images gallery block that you’ll be able to place wherever you like on your page.

    Here’s the feature request – please upvote and add comments:
