  1. allow Pros to remove footer

    This was apparently a short lived option. Some folks are still grandfathered in, but Smugmug's current policy is to force a smugmug branding on our sites (various tricks to hide it are prohibited).

    I understand the need for branding, but as Pros paying quite a bit yearly, I think we should have the choice of whether we want the branding or not. I feel as if Smugmug is trying to play a small part at running my site.

    Can we get this option back please?

    • Music makes everything better!

      Being able to upload songs for viewers to play for each gallery can set the mood for each different photoshoot you are presenting.

        The topic of music appears to be highly contested based on the comments here. At this time we are concentrating on developing some other awesome features that we know will benefit everyone. Please continue to discuss this as it will help us understand how we might be be able to use music more effectively in the future.

      • Set gallery expiration dates within gallery settings

        I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be able to set gallery expiration dates within my settings. I only allow clients to view their gallery for X amount of days and then have to manually go in and change the password to something random that they won't know.

        I would like the choice to have their gallery password work for a certain amount of days that I can designate and then when it expires default to a "Your gallery has expired, please contact for more information" kind of deal. Maybe even a "days left" counter when they have to log in…

        • Ability to Copy Pages / Custom Templates / Maintain Elements While being "Unique"

          [admin update 2015/1/2: Merged multiple ideas]

          It would great if we could have the ability to make copies of our pages so we can keep a consistent look to them if need be. such in my case i want to use it for my blog but others may want it for client pages or what have you.
          -----------
          Now every time you create a page you have to add all the elements you want to use and set the width and ... it would be easier when you could save or reuse a template you made before.

            November 2016: We do have some beta functionality that allows the copying of individual pages. This will take a page, it’s customization (including content blocks), and duplicate it. Right now, you’d need to write into our Support Heroes and ask them to copy the page for you. help@smugmug.com. I hope that helps some folks until we can get this more formalized!

          • Default Settings

            Firstly, make the default settings to provide the most protection. Don't make a user have to search for all the boxes to uncheck to make sure their photos are protected. Second, allow the user to make a default setting of their own that will be applied to all new galleries so they don't have to go through all the settings everytime and hope they don't forget to uncheck one of these sharing settings. Thirdly, allow setting changes to be applied to multiple galleries at once. Fourthly, allow the mobile site to actually change gallery settings!!!

            I chose a package that…

            • Need a better way to sort galleries & photos in the "Items I Choose" option

              In a gallery content block, when the "Select From" option is set to "Galleries I Choose" (or "Photos I Choose", or "Items I choose") the only sorting option is the order in which the galleries are chosen. If you find later that you want to add a gallery or change the order of those displaying, you have to go back in and choose all the galleries over again and be sure you are choosing them in the right order. It would be nice to be able to have a sort option available.

              • Re-enable javascript on the New Smugmug

                I along with quite a few smugmug users self-fulfill our orders. We use paypal for payment and in order to do so, javascript has to be used, whci cannot be done on the new release. (unless the super heroes know of a way of pulling gallery and photo information using html). Is smugmug looking into enabling javascript on the new version?

                • Add Ability To Customize Sharegroup Pages

                  Make Sharegroups a first-class citizen
                  Posted in SmugMug » Site Look & Feel

                  Search around here and in the forums you'll see it again and again:

                  - Easy customization of my Sharegroup page
                  - Advanced customization of my Sharegroup page

                  For some of us, Sharegroups serve as primary landing pages to large collections of galleries. They fill the general need for unlisted URLs and password-protection. However, we have very little control over how that content is displayed to the visitor.

                  When you already have the organized category and subcategory information…

                  • Ability to Customize Events Page like any other Page / Folder / Gallery

                    I want to customize event pages. Currently they stick out like a sore thumb within new smugmug. If I craft an event for a wedding, I want to customize the look for that. If I create an event for a child's birthday, I want to customize it for that.

                    I can do this for a folder versus an event page, which looks much nicer...but that folder must be public for the galleries within to be visible.

                    • More customization with smug mug's contact form

                      Smugmug Provides its users with a very limited contact form that you can only be accessed from the menu. It looks amazing as it matches your website when you change your theme or anything else. But it is extremely limited; Ive asked about more customization but for that smugmug cs tells me i should use another service that is connected to them. It would be so much nicer to have smugmug create their own customization contact forms for us to use. Im sticking with the contact form provided by smugmug as it fits the theme of my website very well,…

                      • allow users to choose how many "Most Populars" they have on their own site.

                        It would be nice if we could choose any number for our own Most Populars; possibly even for visitors to see more than the usual thousand if they would like to, even for the Sitewide Most Populars (i.e. a "click for more" button or some such thing). Other sites show you how many items there are altogether in a partciular category and you can flip through all of them, but smugmug only goes to 1000 -- it's a lot, but I personally would like to have the option for more.

                        • allow us to modify quick settings and automatically update galleries

                          make it possible to modify gallery quick settings. Right now if I want to change a quick setting I basically have to make the change and then do a "SAVE AS" for that change and create a new quick set. If I want this change to be on other galleries I would have to "Apply Quick Settings to multiple galleries" and pick which galleries should use the new quick set. Why can't I just change the setting and it could then automatically be applied to all the galleries with this quick set

                          • allow us to manually associate a date with a gallery

                            It would be good to have the ability to manually associate a date with a gallery as a structured metadata item without having to use the workaround of sticking it in the gallery name, and the ability to arrange galleries by this associated date. I know you have some functionality which works off the camera date or the upload date, but I'm posting a lot of scanned-in old pictures and would like to be able to assign dates to all my galleries for sorting purposes without having to start my gallery names yyyy-mm-dd.

                            • favicon

                              There are multiple problems with facicon customization in current smugmug:
                              1 No support for ico files. This means user cannot upload and use a custom ico file. This in turn means older browsers which only support ico files dont see custom favicon.

                              2. Smugmug only renders 16px png files for custom favicon. This means, browsers cannot pick a custom resolution icon to show (ico files allow this, png files dont). 16px icons look horrible on high resolution screens. Most browsers today support 32px favicons

                              few different possible solutions:
                              1. smugmug can allow user to upload a favicon.ico file. This way,…

                              • Themes -- Offer more sports themes than the few that are available now.

                                You have GREAT themes for us to use, but for sports themes we need more then what is offered now. I shot other sports then what you offer for themes and I think my customers would like themes such as Baskeball, Hockey, Volleyball, Soccer, Rugby, ect....... You have made some GREAT changes in the past year and adding the themes would just make out sites that much GREATER!!! Thank You.

                                • Add Ability To Customize High Level Folders, And Have Changes Flow Down Into Child Galleries

                                  If you make a edit in Customize to a high level folder, allow for the changes to be applied to all children galleries. Essentially, it would copy whatever changes were made in the Customizer to all folders, galleries, and pages contained within the folder. If a Content Block was added to one item, it would also be added to all the other folders, galleries, or pages within that parent folder. There should be an easy way to edit one page, gallery, or folder, and have those changes apply to everything else. It's difficult to have to redo those changes for…

                                    As was announced in November on DGrin (http://dgrin.com/showthread.php?t=239444&page=3) we’ve added the ability to create custom CSS based on a parent folder. You can now use CSS to customize all folders, galleries, and pages within a parent folder.

                                    This is only the beginning of this request, as it does not allow you to add content blocks or customize certain aspects of a higher level folder and let it apply to all galleries, folders, pages, etc within that folder. There is still no way to copy Customizations or content blocks into another gallery or sub-items in a folder. Until that is implemented, I will leave this as “started”.

                                  • apply quick settings to all galleries

                                    Allow for applying gallery quick settings to ALL galleries and bulk selected galleries.

                                    • More/better/updated gallery themes please!

                                      I think a few themes on Smugmug are pretty nice, but most of them are a little old and some are even a little tacky.
                                      I know there are options to customize, but I dont have the time for that.
                                      Please please make available some smart good looking themes!

                                      • Better Mobile Site Customization

                                        Allow better, more independent customization of my mobile site. While my mobile site generally resembles my desktop site, with headers, menu items, etc, I really don't have any control over how my mobile site works. While I like that the changes i make to galleries, color schemes, etc, apply to both my desktop and mobile site, I'd like to be able to toggle between desktop and mobile customization platforms. I want special features that are only available to mobile sites (don't you browse sites on your phone differently than you do on your desktop?). As web traffic to our sites…

                                        • make the pulldown box for Gallery Quick Settings wider so I can see the full name.

                                          If you can't build an interface to CRUD Quick Settings in the short term, at least make the pulldown menu wider so I can differentiate between similarly named quick settings.
