I'm relatively new to Lightroom and have started a major task - organizing 3 thousand plus photo files, creating galleries for WordPress with tags for easy browsing on the website and sale via download. I'm thinking that first I must rename all those image files on my PC with cammand prompt "Rename" and switches; organize them categorically in Lightroom..but after that it gets cloudy. If I create galleries in Lightroom are they usable, can they be exported or imported into a WordPress webpage using one of the plugins there such as Envira Gallery? I suspect that much of this question is not in the realm of Lightroom as much as WordPress support. I'm jsut trying to determine how much of the work can and shoud be done in Lightroom to simplify my task. Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.

Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Past that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.

Need to clarify, you are renaming those images within Lightroom, correct? Not outside of Lightroom using your OS File management.

 

Renaming outside  of Lightroom will foul things up.

Not a fan of Lightroom Web Gallery's, Not a Wordpress  user, I suspect using galleries is wrong.

 

I suspect you will be better off creating a Collection. A collection is just a special place to organize selected images fir later use. The Collection does not contain actual,photos, it just points to them.

I suspect you ddo need a plug-in

 

such as:

Ahh, or a Plug-in/Publishing Service in Lightroom Classic:

 

https://havecamerawilltravel.com/lightroom/wordpress-publish-service/

 

or, from WordPress, and looks like with Galleries in mind:

 

https://wordpress.org/plugins/wplr-sync/
