Title: Simple instructions on how to use the Media Gallery
Post by: Alan - The Webmaster on 16 March 2012, 14:38:48 PM
How to use the media gallery.

Open Media Gallery.

To create a New Album:

  1. Click on "My Albums"
  2. Click on "New Album"
  3. Enter an album name in the "Name" box (an error will occur if this isn't done).
 (4. There is an option do enter a description (the big text box) but this is not compulsory and can be done later) - see "Edit" below.
 (5. All other entries can be left as default, you can play with these if you want but probably best left until later) - see "Edit" below.
  6. Do not alter "Permissions" or your album will not work.
  7. Click on "Submit" (bottom of the page).

To add pictures to your album:

  1. Click on "My Albums"
  2. Click on your album name.
  3. Choose the image to upload via "Browse".
 (4. All other fields and selections are optional but a name and description would be nice. This can be done later) - see "Edit" below.
  5. Click "Submit".

Edit, Delete, Move etc:

 1. Click on "My Albums"
 2. Click on the album name in which you want edit items.
 3. Click on the image to be edited, it will open in a zoomed window.
 The "Details", "Edit" and "Delete" buttons are at the bottom of the screen.

I have been searching some time for the 'my albums' button.... It could be handy to mention that this button can be found under the 'media' button at the top of the screen?

As this thread is called " Simple instructions on how to use the Media Gallery" I didn't think that I needed to actually name the button. Anyway I will update the instructions.

Yes you have to make 10 posts before the Media Gallery becomes available to you'

Will the media button automatically appear after 10 posts or do I have to ask? - Please!

The media gallery should automatically be available after 10 posts but I've also set up so that users with 5 or more posts should get some extra features e.g. Shoutbox and this isn't automatic. The process for the latter is interfering with the availability of the media gallery. I need to investigate this further.


In the meantime CandL you should now be able to see the media gallery.

Thanks for explaining the Media Gallery requirements, I was puzzled since I first joined the forum. Need a couple more posts so I'll look for some opportunities to join in

Cheers

Administrator Comment new members don't get automatic access and have to make a number of posts, I periodically review new members and upgrade accounts, I will be doing that soon so keep an eye open. Alan
