WordPress has a convenient media gallery that helps you manage all of your media files. Some highlights:

  • WordPress scales your media types for you.
  • WordPress allows you to organize media into galleries, and insert entire galleries into pages and posts.
  • It is suggested that audio and video are embedded from other hosted media providers (SoundCloud, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), because hosting your own media gets complicated.
  • There are a variety of media plugins that can make your media much more customizable, interesting, and interactive. Those will be explored later in the course.
