  1. 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.

    • Add possibilty to edit/alter multiple pages/galleries/folders at once, instead of going through each of them individually

      If you want to add a menu or text or something else to only several of your galleries you either have to set them all as non-custom, add the item and then set them all to custom so they don't get affected by another folder, or add the items individually to each page. It would be usefull if we could edit folders/galleries/... in bulk. Either bundle them and edit one exemplarily or, what would even be better, add the possibility to copy blocks of the added content.

      • Add an template/theme export feature

        I will be making a new smugmug site for a client that wants it to look and behave just like my own site. It would be such a time saver to be able to export and then import my own tweaks as a theme/template to use as a starting point.

          • 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?

            • whitelist browsershots.org

              Need to be able to see how customizations look on different platforms, and this is the go to website for that purpose. This feature was requested 3 years ago http://www.dgrin.com/showthread.php?t=202513. It was acknowledged by Andy, and subsequently left in limbo.

              • 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:

                - Display categories and subcategories in Sharegroups
                - 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…

                • allow bespoke domains in place of smugmug galleries.

                  When users access their galleries, the bespoke domain is lost as their are re-directed to a smugmug.com gallery, this means users can only return to my domain using the back button, or by re-entering the address.

                  I want users to be able to browse galleries through my own domain name, so they can seamlessly navigate through my pages.

                  • Please duplicate legacy feature - data adjacent to Gallary image.

                    I liked my homescreen display in legacy but want gallery info in New SmugMug. Please add a feature to show " "5 Galleries with 611 photos" which I think is very informative.

                    This is the last stumbling block for me to switch to the New SmugMug.

                    • 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”.

                      • User Modifiable "View Catalog" Under the "Buy" button there is a "View Catalog" and the catalog has lots of tabs- Prints, Merchandise, Downl

                        User Modifiable "View Catalog"

                        Under the "Buy" button there is a "View Catalog" and the catalog has lots of tabs- Prints, Merchandise, Downloads, Books and More, and Help.

                        I'd like to offer the suggestion that allows pro users to pick what they want to show on their website from this catalog versus an all or nothing.

                        As an example I am only offering prints thru my Smugmug account. Having the catalog with the "Merchandise" tab and the Downloads and the Books and more only confuses my customers when they visit.

                        I'd like to be able to show only the "Prints"…

                            I love the collage of thumbnails on the homepage, but I would LOVE to be able to drag them around and arrange them in a more interesting order. It is difficult to jump from gallery to gallery to "design" my thumbnail order.

                            • Let us cutomize the SmugMug gallery style and slideshow

                              The speed and transition speed of gallery slideshows should be adjustable. It is running too fast for my taste and for the style of my work. Also, I want to be able to change the layout of the SmugMug gallery style. For instance, to put the thumbnails on the right side, or make the thumbnail block smaller and have the display photo move more to the middle of the screen, etc.

                                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.

                                    • Ability to change the galleries the same way that you can edit homepage and folders

                                      I don't understand why the homepage and folders you can edit how it displays (in my case I am particularly interested in the spacing between photos) but not in the galleries? That seems like a significant disconnect. I really like how my photos look in the new site.. until I get to the actual gallery which has a different look because I can not edit it.

                                      • Allow the colour of the gridlines to be changed, or them made thicker.

                                        I find it hard to see the gridlines, so being able to choose the colour would help.

                                        • Allow users to edit lightbox functions

                                          Prior to the new update, when one clicked the photo in the lightbox, it exited the box and pushed the user to the gallery view.

                                          Now, in the new Smugmug, this functionality is replaced by an X.

                                          My #1 customer complaint to date is about the functionality or lack there of, involved in the lightbox.

                                          For example, if a user clicks off the picture, why can't I designate that to exit the lightbox? Or, if a user wishes to click the picture, why can't that exit the lightbox?

                                          It seems as if Smugmug is enhancing the rest of the site…
