Photo galleries are a great way to display multiple photos on your website. They are much easier to create than a carousel, and they will show visitors all of your photos at once instead of making them wait to see each one in a carousel.
IUP websites can create photo galleries using Ektron’s PageBuilder function.
Each photo gallery must have its own separate content folder for photos. All images stored within a folder will be displayed in that folder’s photo gallery.
Contact the Digital Team via ihelp or email@example.com and request that a new folder be created. Please be specific as to its exact location
in the workarea, and what its title should be. The Digital Team will let you know as soon as the folder is ready.
Note: While each separate photo gallery needs its own unique content folder for the photos, a separate page layout folder is not necessarily required.
Here’s how to upload images.
Go back to the Content tab in the workarea. In your photo gallery folder, hover over View and choose Properties.Note: If you do not have the Properties option, contact the Digital
Team and ask for the folder ID number for the photos:
firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you receive it, proceed to step 3.
Copy the folder ID number (you will need it later).
Open the Page Layouts set of folders. Click on the subfolder where you want the photo gallery page to appear (the folder location determines on which menu it appears).
Create a new page layout.
(If you need a refresher, here’s how to create a new page layout. When you get to the last step, come back to this page to complete
the edits with step 5.)
Open the page layout for editing.
Resize the default column so it’s responsive. Here’s more info about editing page layouts.
From the PageBuilder menu, add the IUPGallery widget.
Ignore the default photos. Instead, click the Edit icon (pencil) on the widget.
Add the gallery folder ID (from #1 above), and click Save. Do not include the zero (unless it’s part of your folder ID).
Your photos should now appear.
Click Submit from the PageBuilder menu (or Check In if the page is not yet ready to be published).
Note: If this page layout is the only page in its folder, and it has never been published before, please contact the Digital Team immediately after submitting it (email@example.com), so we can activate the folder’s menu and have your new photo gallery appear on your website.
