Create a Gallery

Galleries are a collection of images to be displayed on the website. A gallery page is created during the initial implementation of the website. The gallery page will dynamically display galleries. There is no need to add galleries directly to a page. 

Create a Gallery

1. Choose Galleries in the dashboard navigation 

2. Click New Gallery

3. Add Basic gallery information

Title - Enter a title for your gallery. This title appears in Rivista, not on the website.

Parent Galleryoptional. Only used with child galleries

Template & Stylesheet - Choose the gallery template & match the stylesheet.

Subtitle, Byline, Summary, Thumbnail image - Add Subtitle, Byline, Summary and Thumbnail image for the mixed content list view of a gallery

Upload gallery - Upload images one at a time or via a zip file. Acceptable files are .jpg, .png and .bmp. NOTE: The files cannot exceed 32MB.

4. Click Update to save changes and apply the images to the gallery.
After you click Update, the page will reload and you will now be able to edit or delete the images. 

For r5, galleries are access through Mixed Content Lists. Readers are directed to a dynamically generated link using the gallery page.
