    Hi there!

    Please try the following:

    - Upload the images you'd like to post into the post

    - After you have all the images you'd like to have included, drag one of them up (so that it switches places with another one) and drag it back down to the position you'd like to publish it. This forces them to be sorted again and should fix the issue as a workaround for now.

    - Submit the post and you should see the images in the right order

     

    And we're of course going to bring out a better sorting in the future so that this won't happen and the original order is retained without having to drag them up and down.

    It would be great if users could arrange multiple image post in different arrangements, not just have all images listed in a single column but be able to put them next to each other, one photo on top and two below, etc.

    I signed up here to suggest what James did. Tumblr's adaptive image rearrangement allows your post to look more creative and interesting. Would love for BDSMLR to somehow replicate it.

    These are all requests I've been making since I started my blog here on BDSMLR. I am happy to see there are more of us who want to see these features. Hopefully the BDSMLR team will take note. 

    - in multiple image post the ability to arrange and rearrange image order and delete images, even after post published
    (currently, even if i delete an image it will still show in published post)
    - ability to specify specific date/time for publishing posts (i think they are working toward this)
    - ability to rearrange order of posts in queue (click and drag)

    Just a few of my requests for the queue

    @Paul

    We do take note and listen :). We will be shining up and improving all the features once we get the most essential ones brought in. Some things such as queue (and image arranging especially side to side) are quite complex tasks and they will take time to implement so that they work 100%. We still have much to do but we're getting there step by step.

    Didn't mean to imply otherwise. I just meant that this helps you to see what your users are asking for.

    I'm very please all the changes and features that are being added.  Probably the single thing I most appreciate is that you give us consistent updates about what is going on in BDSMLR world.  Thank you for that.

    I have to bring this up again. I have posted multi-picture posts with captions that need to be in a certain order. On the main blog page, they show up in order, but when I go to my own page and my archive page, the pics are completely out of order with no way to edit them!

    We desperately need a image arranger option!

    Yes, it happens to me often. 

    I agree, we need that. 

    And I know they are working toward it. At the moment though not much we can do. Except perhaps only post single images.

    We have done updates to address the order issues, posted images should now show up in order they're showing up while previewing.

    For the possibility to rearrange images via edit we have to do quite big changes so that's not yet implemented, definitely in the plans though.

    This is definitely still an issue.

    I have multiple image sets which upload in a different order to the one shown. I've tried dragging them in individually, reordering the in the upload screen, renaming the files in case the file name's an issue and more, but it still doesn't work right.

    This issue is almost the same as this other issue: https://bdsmlr.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360009107360-Reorder-images-in-a-post

    In the other issue I have posted a detailed description which I hope will enable Bdsmlr Support to reproduce the problem.

    Following the advice in this ticket did not help with my problem. The pictures are still reordered.
