  1. 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…

    • 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…

        • why is it that we can not get even a basic html editor built (to do basic text editing and to control the page content) in to our dashboard

          why is it that we can not get even a basic html editor built (to do basic text editing and to control the page content) in to our dashboard and from the html editor there would be way to upload a image directly from the html editor and then publish - i have requested this several times with no results yet - I think I will just go with wordpress and save $20.00 a month - this is ridicules and really getting on my nerves...

          • Gallery Text, add undo

            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…

                    • Allow a way to go back in time when making site edits

                      When making site edits, allow users to go back through a series of edits to get back to a specific point in time. This would probably reduce the number of support requests as well as enabling users to experiment with their site without the risk of messing it up.

                      • Make periodic backups of all custom settings (CSS, HTML, etc.)

                        It is easy to lose or damage your customizations when making changes, and maybe you want or need to return to a previous working version of your customized site.

                        • Improve maintainability of site-wide "Gallery Settings"

                          I envision a method whereby the site owner can quickly scan the gallery settings of all the site's galleries at once. This will help to quickly identify various kinds of errors, for example, a gallery with a deprecated Quick Setting. I then envision a capability to change the settings of multiple galleries at once, for example, changing a single “gallery setting” value or applying a Quick Setting to multiple galleries simultaneously.

                          I would expect the "scanning" capability not to be hampered by a user interface requiring the presentation of the "gallery settings" on dozens or hundreds of pages on a…

                          • Add buy button to images displayed outside a gallery (such as showcasing multiple images on homepage)

                            When a user gets on my homepage, They cannot understand that I'm selling the photos. For some of us it should be right in their face.

                            The problem is on a gallery page tou have the buy button but if you use the same gallery on a page (such as your homepage) The photos will not have the buy button (unless user clicks for lightbox view).

                              I just sent this suggestion to support and they asked that I post it here:

                              Is it possible to edit the text on the cookie consent bar? It currently reads: "FYI: This site uses cookies to make sure your visit is as awesome as possible. What and why?" but I don't like the way it's worded, it just doesn't suit my site or the style of my business - especially as I'm in Europe, not the US.

                              I also wondered if it's possible to have the link in the cookie consent bar directed elsewhere? At the moment it goes to…

                              • Ability to customize while offline and apply later

                                I want to be able to customise my site! OFF LINE
                                example:

                                To be able to edit everything on a page

                                Then to be able to save the edit for later when I am on line to upload the changes!

                                This would be very very handy if I was somewhere with no internet access, which is quite often!

                                Its VERY frustrating when you have an idea and cannot sort it because guess what you have no internet access!

                                PLEASE PLEASE give smug muggers this ability it would be a great assett to the tool set on SMUG MUG

                                  Or have more user friendly icons placed in a higher position on the galleries.
                                  My clients always seem to be confused / or unaware of the download button (not the download all), the share button and the favorites. Would like the option to customize it.

                                    In other words, make the standard image display include the possibility of also displaying under or to the side all of the metadata found in the file that can be rendered as text.

                                    Nice extras would be to be able to reorder the list and to choose whether…

                                    • Save text in the description field with "quick settings"

                                      Hi!

                                      I have the settings I need for my various client galleries saved as pre-sets in the "quick settings" - it's great. However, I'd love to save the text I enter into "description" to those pre-sets as well (that's where I leave instructions for the client on how to select from their proofs in their preliminary gallery, or how to download their final images from their edited gallery etc).

                                      It would save several steps (now I create the new gallery, go to an old gallery where I click through organize>settings>description and then copy the text there, close out of that,…

                                      • 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…

                                        • Ability to scope "Most Popular" and "Recent Photos" to certain galleries

                                          "Most Popular" and "Recent Photos" should have the ability to limit the scope to certain galleries and not just globally. It would be nice to have these designations for different sections of my site.
