By default albums will be displayed in the order you add the to your website.
To reorder the index simply click the “Up” or “Down” arrow to change the order they will be displayed. Once you are done reordering the albums click the “save” button at the top of the list to commit the new display order to your website.
By default the images in your administration section for the galley will be displayed from the “newest” image down to the “oldest” image. This makes sense considering that you might want to change the title or change the album the image belongs to after you completed the uploading process. Displaying the new images at the top will save you time trying to find the latest uploaded images.
By default the front end will also display the images with the “newest” images first. This might not always be desirable and you have the option to not only change the order of the display by “new” but you can also change the display order to anything you want by repositioning each image exactly where you want it in the display order.
If you simply need to change the default behaviour to display the newest image last in the list, edit the album settings and move the slider from “Newest First” to “Oldest First” and click Update at the bottom.
Changing the individual image order, we revert back to the trusted XMS Systems “Reorder” functionality.
Click the “Edit” button in the gallery list in your administration section followed by the purple “manage ‘xx’ photos” button.
next click the “up” or “down” arrows followed by the “save” button to commit the changes.
Looking at the above image, click the “edit” button to change specific image information.
To change the album the image belongs to, simply select a different album from the drop-down list.
A tick in the “Album Cover” will set this image as the album cover of the album it belongs to and while you are here, add a title for the image. It’s the right thing to do.
