Could anyone explain to me how to create a picture galleries page, using the built in Wordpress galleries (no plugins if possible)?

Basically, I would like to create a page (template?) in which I loop over all the news of the type Gallery.

I've seen some related questions, but without an answer. Could anyone be of service?

Thanks in advance.

If 'gallery' is a taxonomy item (like a category) you could create a new page template (perhaps based on index.php) and then use the get_posts() function to return a list of posts in that category.

That's the process. Do you need more detail?

If 'gallery' is a post format that may be a quite different operation.

Hi, thanks! Yes, it is a category "gallery". Creating a new page template is not a problem, the actual PHP code for the get_posts() is another thing. Could you provide a little more detail? – maartenmachiels Feb 14 '12 at 10:30
