In this KB article you'll learn about the the galleryies module of the JM2 CMS. This module allows the user to easily create, manage, and customize their galleryies in some interesting ways. I'll cover everything about the galleryies module in further detail as outlined below:

  • Adding a new gallery
    • gallery Image Information
    • Extra Information
  • Search and Sort

Adding A New gallery

To begin you must click on this button. Once the page is loaded it should look something like this:

Let's start by saying a few things about the gallery module. By default the images should show up in the gallery page of your website. So when you add a gallery item you're adding it to that default page. There are a few fields that are worth going over. Let's do that now…

  • gallery Image Information
    • Category - The category only describes the set of images in the gallery.
    • Add New Category - You can make a new category by typing in this field. As long as you type something in the New Category field the category will be created.
    • Description - This is simply a description of your gallery.
    • Group Name - This describes how you can categorize your image. This is useful when your are trying to find lots of similar images. Let's pretend you have a lot of cat photos the description may be the name of the cat but the group name would be “cats”. This makes it much easier to see lots of cat photos in this case. Otherwise you would have to type the name of the cat that you want to see every time.
    • Description - This describes what the gallery is for.
    • Alternate view - Alternate view changes the position of the text. The text comes in to play in the extra information tab which I'll cover in a little bit.
    • Active - This determines if the gallery is going to be visible on the website.
    • Image - This is where you select your image for the gallery.
  • Extra Information - In this tab you have 5 description boxes. The way that this looks on each gallery depends upon the way the gallery is defined by when you tell our team what to do with that information.

Search and Sort

When you click on the galleryies module or go back to the galleryies list from creating a new account you should see something like this:

The use of these types of searches are covered extensively in the Search and Sort KB article here.
