How to use

  • Create a page called photo-index and copy the content from the photo-index file linked above. This will be the main index to your set of photo galleries.
  • Create a page called photos:_template and copy the content from the file _template linked above.
  • Edit your side menu (nav:side) and add the code from the file nav-side-link linked above in an appropriate place to create a link to your photo gallery index page. Note: you may want to include this link in your top navigation instead (in this case you'll want to edit nav:top).

Site Manager Settings

  • Go to your Site Manager > Autonumbering of pages. Click + add autonumbering and then in the "create a new one" field, type the category name photos. Then click add autonumbering to save your changes.

Note: for the next steps, you need to create one photo gallery page so the photos category gets created. Visit your photo-index page and submit a new photo gallery. Just add some place-holder text for now and save the page. You can go back and edit it later and upload some photos.

  • Go back to your Site Manager and activate your forum if you haven't done so already (under Site Manager > Forum & discussion).
  • Next, under Site Manager > Forum & discussion >Per page discussion, enable Per page discussions for category photos. This will allow the comments module to work so others can make comments on individual photo galleries.
  • Be sure to check your Site Manager > Permissions settings as well. Make sure your target audience of users has proper permissions to create pages and upload files.

Notes

  • You will probably want to tweak some of the module settings, font sizes and colors to match the theme of your site.
  • The main index page makes use of the New Page module so the proper category is assigned to your photo gallery pages.
  • This package makes use of autonumbering and a live template to make it as easy as possible for other users to contribute to your site.
