We’re back with a quick (but useful) Smug Tip this week: Sorting your homepage.
Find it Fast: Display Galleries or Just Categories
We get a lot of people who don’t realize that you can switch between the two and often wonder what happened to their homepage. Don’t worry! It’s easy to toggle from one to the other so you can pick which works best for you and change it in an instant.
Find that option in the top right corner of your Galleries box. The one that is not underlined is what you’re currently using:
If you like to show everything on your site up front and center, then the default Galleries option will be perfect (shown above).
But if you’re a prolific shooter and don’t want your viewers to get lost trying to find a specific gallery, try the Categories view instead:
Auto Sort or Manual Sort
While you’re at it, you may also want to change what order things appear on your site. Look on the other side of that box:
By default we’ll automatically bump the freshest gallery to the top. But click that “Position” link and try arranging them however you wish.
Adding and Hiding Stuff
As a bonus, take a look at that Homepage Layout button you see up there:
We start you off with a Bio box and a Galleries box, but you’ll see that there are a whole lot of other things you can click to display to your fans. Just look at the menu and select what you want.
Change your mind? That’s ok, just pick it again from the list or click the “hide” link in the top right corner of the box you want gone:
Remember that only you, the logged-in gallery owner, are able to see and make any of these changes. Play around with them, find what works best for you and enjoy!
