VIDEO - websites - Step 3 - Gallery List Page


Setup a GalleryList page (ie: the page that looks like a grid of images) 
This page is a grid of images.  Each image has a title and the ability to link to other pages or external URLs.  If you have 9 portfolio type pages, this is a great gateway page to use page to use. 

  1. Make sure to have all of your images sized and ready.
  2. Click Content
  3. Click the "New" button
  4. Title the page (ie: FAQ or Frequently Asked Questions) Hint: you can change it later. 
  5. Select "Gallery List"
  6. Click "Create Page"

Now you will see the page in the list of the "All Pages" panel on the left

  1. Click the "Entries" Tab
  2. Click "New" at the bottom of the panel
  3. Under "Page Title" enter the first title (this will be the top left box)
  4. Upload an image under "Assigned Image" that corresponds to that box 
  5. Determin if and where this image is going to link to: Click "Link to a Page you created" if you have already made that page or Type the URL for an external link in the field right below it. 
  6. Select "Open in the Same Window" if it is an internal page.  Select " Open in a New Window" if you are linking to an external page.  this will spawn a new browser window so that your site doesn't go away. 
  7. Click "Save"

Repeat all of these steps to add more entries to this page.

  1.  Click the "Settings" tab to set up your grid.
  2.  Grid Columns-   Here you can select the amount of columns you would like for your Gallery List page to have.
  3. Heading - here you can give your page a tile ( ie Weddings, Engagement, Families  )
  4. Description will allow you to write a short description of the gallery and can be used for SEO purposes.

Hint: Under the design tab, you will see that we set our Album page ratio to be a 16:9 ratio.  The Album page helps define the size of the body of the site.  Our demo's images for Gallery list page are sized to 533 x 300 px  This is a ratio based on the ratio of the Album page 16:9 divided by the 3x3 grid = 5.3:3.  If this is too much math for you, don’t worry about it.  Our demo sizes work really well.
