  1. Homepage "least-views" option

    The idea would be to have a gallery/page on the home page displaying photos. Having an option under the "select from" showing "least views" would potentially offer viewers a dynamic experience where photo exposure would drastically increase.

    Currently there is options to choose from: popular and recent.
    An option to choose from "un-popular" would be welcomed. :)

    Thanks

    • Enable changes for whole site in stead of Gallery

      For some features It’s necessary to adjust each individual gallery. With lots of galleries this is a lot of (error-prone!) work.
      Examples:
      - try to right-click protect your whole site
      - try to remove all keywords
      - etc.
      I would like the option to do this site wide!

      • Logout button for guest-users

        I have a gallery visible only for people that I choose.
        So when one of them logs in with their newly created guest accounts and later wants to log out again… there is no chance to do that directly on my page. They actually have to go to smugmug.com <http://smugmug.com/> and logout from there - which is rather impractical considering they come in to visit a special gallery and not to manage their own galleries. And it is not really obvious that one has to do it this way either.
        Is there any chance to improve on this…

        • Scrolling text (using marquee)

          I was able to add scrolling text (using marquee) in the old SmugMug world, but now cannot. Want that feature available

            • Allow Carousel in the background

              It would be awesome if the carousel could pass under the "All site content" and be Screen wide. Here's an example of what could be cool for a portfolio with a superb and quite simple design: http://www.amandacrewphotography.com/

              For now Smugmug doesn't have the ability to create such a page.

              If you think the same, vote !

              • Copy a design for further work (while retaining the original design work).

                Does anyone know how to make a COPY of a site design (so that incremental changes can be experimented with on the COPY), while also saving the ORIGINAL design in case the incremental changes are not deemed valuable enough to add to the ORIGINAL? If so, please email me, paulrogers@sturbridgepress,com.

                • Ability to customize gallery password login page

                  Allow photographers to customize the PASSWORD LOGIN page for password protected galleries. It is often the first thing clients or customers see when they click on a link and it is currently an solid color page that says "UNLOCK" gallery -

                  Let's create a tool that allows us to customize this page - for example, a preview of a photo from the gallery the client is about to enter used as the background (similar to the setup for the owner login page). Or the ability to show a collage of photos from the gallery as a backdrop.

                  This would be…

                  • include the design of the infobar in content and design menu

                    I would like to make the suggestion to expand the possibility of tweaking the infobar and the font (color) in the content and design menu instead of working through CSS! And also a display of info not on but under the image would be great! Especially on a mobile the standard white transparant infobar is way to dominant. More variety in display options would be great

                    • Make all background colors changeable, even in settings!!

                      Make all backgrounds colors changeable. Even the ones in settings and such. I cannot copy and paste anything with your annoying black backgrounds. Not everyone shares your joy of black. I can get around it, but shouldn't since I am paying for a service.

                      • Return Gallery Customization upon creation

                        It was very easy to select several things at the gallery creating window, mainly the order of presentation (filename, date, etc), now a very simple window opens and all the options are gone.
                        This makes you have to go into the Customize section and do this. Adding more steps (loading) to the process.

                        • Get warned if you don't "apply" a quick setting before you hit save

                          In the new smugmug if you are selecting a quick setting to apply to the gallery, after you select the quick setting, a green check mark and a trash can appear next to the quick setting you selected. If you forget to "apply" the quick setting by clicking on the green check mark, and just hit save, you lose those changes. As with most things, if you hit save, it should give you a warning if you are about to "leave" without applying the changes. I don't understand the need for this two step process anyway. If you choose the…

                          • Make all "fields" accessible in quick setting and show the ones that are already selected (or common between the multiple galleries)

                            In the Quick Settings on the old smugmug you could save just about everything in the Quick Setting. In the new smugmug, per the help page for it: "Quick Settings do not include passwords, gallery title, description, keywords, category, subcategory, NiceName, or theme, so those things will need to be tweaked for each gallery." I would like for all of those items to be allowed to be saved in a quick setting like they used to be. I can see where title or nice name wouldn't be useful, but everything else would be very useful to be able to duplicate…

                            • Allow Quick Settings to be applied to every gallery inside a folder.

                              In the past you could do this but now you can not apply "Quick Settings" to many galleries at once that are inside a folder. Or to apply quick settings to the whole site at once.

                                There's a wrench menu when viewing photos in a gallery that has options like Hide, Replace, Delete, etc.

                                Please add Feature to that so that I don't have to open Gallery Settings | Basic | Feature Image, and then navigate the photos all over again.

                                • More customization features in the SmugMug gallery style.

                                  This gallery style currently has only two customization features: Spacing between photos, and Thumbnail size. But I miss for example the possibility to customize the Shopping icon.

                                  • Navigate around site when editing in Customizer

                                    This is a simple feature that would make editing and customising so much easier. When you are in the editor/customise menu where you can edit content of the page. It would be great to be able to actually navigate to different pages instead of publishing then navigating to the page on your site just to go back into editor menu.

                                    There have been times I have wanted to create a page but I have to publish it and make a link for it so that I can actually get into the editor menu to add content. Not ideal at all…

                                      • Create page with all photos from one folder (AKA Editable Gallery as Page)

                                        We already have a gallery with all of the photos but no option is given to have the same but with a page.

                                        Having a page with all of photos allows me to add text, reformat and customize it the way I want.

                                        • Allow duplicate galleries to preserve formatting.

                                          I am using the same exact galleries for a new year. I want to keep the old gallery organization, and just make a duplicate, delete the old photos, and update the title to reflect the new year.
                                          This would save me tons of time so that I wouldn't have to recreate the guest upload links and I would just archive the old galleries.
