Select multiple image with image widget


I’m trying to add an image widget with the ability to add multiple images, but it doesn’t seem to work.

I can’t select multiple images (in the library) and when I click on add more image it replaces the one already selected.

Am I missing something?
Here is the code


      - label: "Gallerie"
        name: "gallery"
        widget: "object"
          - { label: "Name", name: "name", widget: "string" }
          - label: "Images Gallerie"
            name: "image_gallery"
            widget: "image"
            choose_url: false
            media_folder: gallery/
            allow_multiple: true
                multiple: true

Well, after some more tries, they are not displayed, but it is added well.

On the other hand, the multiple selection from the interface does not work?

For information, I am local, if it changes something.

The multiple property is meant for external media libraries, such as uploadcare. The internal image widget does not support it. Try nesting an image widget in a list widget to create a list of images instead.

thanks for reply,

I have seen this in another topic but I was not sure I understood correctly

Did you end up figuring this out? How did you set up your gallery? I am trying to do the same thing.

No I still haven’t succeeded

Hey y’all @kuwts + @McFly Netlify CMS is now DeCap CMS I’d encourage you both to reach out to them as they may be of assistance.

Yes I know but anyway it doesn’t change the problem since Decap CMS doesn’t include any change from NetlufyCMS for the moment

with a little research on the decap site I was able to solve this in about 10 minutes. Hope this helps

  • name: “image carousel”
    label: “Image Carousel”
    folder: “src/content/image-carousel”
    create: true
    slug: “index”
    media_folder: “”
    public_folder: “”
    path: “{{title}}/index”
    preview: false
    • {
      label: “Images”,
      name: “images”,
      widget: “list”,
      summary: “{{fields.image}}”,
      { label: “Image”, name: “image”, widget: “image” },

the decap docs are better then the crap netlify cms ones which almost always lead one to think they need custom widgets.

If you need more fields for the images (ie. names etc) make sure you change “field” to “fields”… the above guidance led me in the right direction though. Nesting an image widget inside of a list widget! hopoe this helps!!!


Thank you very much for this answer, I will try to apply it on StaticCMS because

following the static position of NetlifyCMS, the impossibility of contacting the team, the non-answers given by the so-called team, I migrated to Static CMS before the announcement of DecapCMS.

StaticCMS solves all the bugs that NetlifyCMS had been dragging out for over a year and a half, and the person managing the project is very active and attentive.

There have been huge improvements.

Congratulations again.
