I am using the default image gallery to create the gallery. I save the images in the order they should appear. They are titled numericaly 1-25 in both the media column and the actions column and in the image gallery creator appear in the correct order . I have them set to display in ascending order by title. On the actual post they appear in random. I have tried to set them in ascending "menu" order as well. They still appear randomly. I have tried both short code and ordering through the gallery editor both with "random" results. Below are two of the many combinations of short code statements that resulted in a random image order.
[gallery link="file" columns="5" size="Small Thumbnail" order="DESC" orderby="ID"]
[gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="5" size="Small Thumbnail"]
Thanks for any help.
