    I would like to add a link from the right hand menu bar to my photo gallery (on same server). Can find no mention anywhere of how to do this. Have latest release of FlatPress.

    The two "built-in" ways to do this are to simply add it as a menu item or create a static page with a little bit more to it than a simple link (maybe a thumbnail) and create a blockparser widget from it, then place it where you want. You could use this method to set the link to open in a new window if you want, by using the normal html link code rather than the BBCode version.

    Or you could try the RandImage plugin to create a widget which displays a random image from a folder.

    In all cases if you want to link to a folder on the same domain just use a relative path in your hyperlink. In all other cases (or if in doubt) you can put the full http://www.myotherdomain.whatever

    Thanks to your help Stanley, and some experimentation, I now have a direct link to my gallery from the right hand menu.
