  1. make it possible to add google forms so my clients can take my surveys.

    I use google forms for my business. I wish I could integrate them with your site. It would be so much easier for me and my clients to have them all in one.

    • Add testimonials

      Please add a feature to add Customer Testimonials to my site. It should be a page you can add, add a menu link to it from your homepage, ask the client for their name, rating (1 to 5 or stars or something like that), have them write up to maybe 200-300 characters and then have a submit button. The owner can then review the testimonial and choose to publish or not.

      • Make the RSS Feed Link positionable

        Currently RSS Feed link is in the footer. This doesn't work so well for very large galleries, because the infinite scroll means you have to do a lot of work to get to the link.

        I'd like to propose that the link be positionable (or at least provide a few choices), so that (for instance), I could position the link in the lower right-hand corner of the gallery hero image (near the download/slideshow buttons)

        Not saying the footer shouldn't be an option, but I don't think it should be the only choice!

        • Add more sites pointing to our domains.smugmug.com

          I have two major accounts I regularly upload photos for, one is an amusement business and they need media to be able to access a gallery of mine for publications. The other is my own photo business. I would like to have my photo business have a subdomain and their business to have a separate subdomain. That way when they send the press to my site to gather photos I've uploaded for them, they don't use my name, but theirs. But I can continue using my name for my other clients.

          • Wrap text around an image

            I know I am able to wrap text around an image by writing/editing HTML. This assumes the user has HTML knowledge.

            Would it be possible to create a feature, enabling the wrapping of a block of text around an image? As opposed to only being able to place the text above, below, to the left or to the right of the image?

            Thank you.

            • Allow customizing of contact invitation emails

              The email your system sends when inviting a contact to access a gallery (e.g. as used in the Client Area functionality) is pretty awesome. It would be nice to be able to brand the email and change it's message content. However, at the absolute bear minimum, can we at least have the ability to change how it refers to US? The email reads "Great news! dtrimble has invited you...". It looks amateurish and a bit silly to say "dtrimble", which is also what shows in the from header. It would be super useful to be able to say my full…

              • Allow pinning individual page sidebars

                Currently, the sidebars on pages pin only if they are an entire site sidebar or homepage sidebar.

                That disallows having different pinned sidebars on different pages.

                Moreover, entire site sidebars display on the 'Unlock Page' page, which would not be wanted if you want all of the content of your pages (including the sidebar) to be private.

                It seems pretty basic to allow having different content on sidebars on different pages, and to choose to pin all of them or some of them individually, and for the sidebar not to be visible to people without a visitor password.

                I can't…

                • Allow slideshow (or lightbox) arrows to be placed other than at the sides.

                  Allow back/forward arrows for slideshow (and lightbox) to fit not just at the sides of the slideshow but also right under the slideshow and not intrude on the image area. (Or maybe other locations too?)

                  And to be able to group the back/forward, thumbnails link, full screen button, and play button all neatly together under the slideshow.

                  And for these not to disappear/reappear or fade/unfade with mouse hoverings .

                  For example, from a page of another photographer:

                  http://www.krisannejohnson.com/Projects/Old-German-Baptist/1

                  (She does have mouse hover animation; but we can imagine that there's an option to allow the page designer to not have…

                  • Allow interaction between slideshow/thumbnails so that both pages can have other content too.

                    I would like to have pages that have on them a slideshow but also other content blocks with other text, such as a paragraph about the subject of the slideshow or navigation on a sidebar, etc.

                    Then also a button to the thumbnails. And on the thumbnails page, also content blocks along with the thumbnails. Then to be able to click on a thumbnail to bring you back to the slideshow page at that image in the slideshow.

                    For example, see this page by another photographer:

                    http://www.krisannejohnson.com/Projects/Old-German-Baptist/1

                    You see that she has her sidebar navigation on both the slideshow page…

                    • Different type of loading effects for pages

                      I would really like to have an option to change the loading effect to something simple as just a smooth glide in. My pages load very poppy, images randomly pop up, it just looks very untidy like that.

                      • Have "Make this Gallery Custom" be default instead of "All Galleries"

                        I have a question and a suggestion. The suggestion is to change the customization of galleries to make "Make This Gallery Custom" the default position rather that "All Galleries." I propose that most text usage will be intended for one gallery, not all, and that, as happened to me twice, I changed the lead-in text on all of my galleries accidentally when I had intended it for the new gallery I was working on. My question is related: Is there a way for me to change that default on my account even though, because I was burned twice before, I…

                        • Allow Design Customisation of Search Result Page

                          It would be great to be able to customise the design of the search results page.

                          The images currently show up with no spacing between each of them and as a cropped version of the full image, so it's hard to see the images properly without clicking on each one.

                          It would also be great to have the text that appears for each image to be its title, rather than the gallery it belongs to.

                          Thanks!

                          • 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!!!

                                  Formatting text content of a gallery is extremely cumbersome right now (e.g., no bullets). Cutting and pasting of already formatted content is not possible. When one attempts to do so, there is not back; an "Undo" does not exist. Please provide it.

                                      • Set up custom pages separate from the Entire site option

                                        The ability to set up custom pages separate from the Entire site option. This would allow for multiple pages without header and/or footer on it each of them having a unique layout. Using the current standard Smugmug functionality it would require me to set up the header and footer for each individual page separately which cost a lot of time.

                                        • Divider Pages

                                          Within a gallery, is there a way to insert a blank space, where a photo would be, and then to write on it, for the purpose of making a divider page which identifies the next set of photos? I know I can label each photo, but I'm wanting to make a visible separation between a group of photos within the gallery. For example if the gallery is of a trip, it would be nice to have a divider page that identifies sub grouping such as: our hotel, side trip to blank, blah blah restaurant, tour of X winners, etc. followed…
