Topic: Galleries?

Is it possible to turn the thumbnails you see into separate
galleries ? If not how can i create multiple galleries on the main index?


Re: Galleries?

It is not possible to turn thumbnails into separate galleries.

With SimpleViewer, you would be able to create as many individual galleries as you like. However, if you would like to link them all together, you would need to do so manually following the instructions and examples in the Multiple Galleries support section.
There are several online demo pages which you could adapt to suit your own needs. (Knowledge of HTML would be required.)

If you are looking for an automated solution to creating and listing multiple galleries, then you might be interested in another one of our products - Showkase.

Showkase is a PHP web application which allows you to create a complete portfolio web site (integrating multiple galleries) online.
Showkase has full support for SimpleViewer-Pro (and Juicebox-Pro) galleries and the galleries can be created within the application itself in a web browser interface.
Alternatively, you could continue to create your galleries with svBuilder and import the galleries into Showkase via the 'Site -> Import' functionality.
Once a gallery has been imported into Showkase, it becomes a genuine Showkase page (just as if the gallery had been created within Showkase itself) and you can edit the gallery within the Showkase interface in the future if you need to.

You can create Gallery Index pages and have as many galleries listed on each Gallery Index page as you wish.
Each gallery is represented by a thumbnail image with the gallery title displayed below and the gallery is opened when the user clicks on the image.
Demo sites can be found here and a sample Gallery Index page can be found here.

Showkase can also create non-gallery pages (About, Basic and Contact pages) where you can add information about yourself (or any other content you like).
All of this is done automatically within the Showkase interface without the need for any manual coding at all.

Showkase can be purchased as Showkase-Standard (which comes with SimpleViewer-Standard and Juicebox-Lite, the free versions) or Showkase-Pro (which comes with SimpleViewer-Pro and Juicebox-Pro).
(The only difference between Showkase-Standard and Showkase-Pro is the bundled viewers.)

More information on the differences between SimpleViewer, Juicebox and Showkase can be found in this forum post.
