Clients > Bob and Jane > Kids photos (EVENT) > Alan 1 yr gallery, Tiffany new born gallery, etc.

It's really the lack of "levels" that are available that causes me headaches and to have to compromise. If someone is browsing my site or doesn't have the link handy and wants to view a wedding event, they can't. All they see is a ton of galleries with no structure.

I noticed that the event galleries are slightly different - each gallery is not contained in a minibox class as on the standard gallery pages...
Could you please post an example screengrab, and also a link to where you see this?

Sorry but I've searched and don't see any discussion on this. Once someone has tagged images and they are in their favorites gallery, is it possible to set prices only for this gallery? I ask because I did go into "Set Prices" in the person's favorites gallery and it does show the adjusted price. However, when clicking on the buy photo button, it still shows as the cost from the original gallery where it was selected from.

My goal is to set special pricing for this person's favorites. How can I easily accomplish that?

You just need to change up your personal customizing:



/* ================================================== == */
/* == FAQ #18, Line up boxes with titles underneath === */
/* ============== Current as of 13 Feb 07 ============= */
/* ================================================== == */

the event box needs to be added to that code - please post in customizing forum so the helpers can help you :) Thanks!

Question. I shoot soccer games. The viewing audience for a given game or set of games consists of the players, the parents of the players and any friends or family members they share with. I'd love for all of my viewing audience to be able to each create their own favorites. Is there any way to do that?

Or do I have to separately add every participant that I want to allow to have favorites? So, if there were 20 players on the team, would I have to make 20 separate participants and send each one their own custom URL and their friends and family wouldn't be able to have their own favorites unless I manually made each of them a participant too?

Yes, the way it is designed, you send a notice via our system to each participant - and they get their own smart gallery for favorites

I can see how that would work fine for some situations (weddings perhaps), but that won't work for me because it's just too much work to enable everyone individually and I don't even have all the individual email addresses as email goes to the team via a centrally managed blind mailing list. I hope it's on the improvement list to let anyone give their own email and create their own favorites list.

Beginner grinner
Event date range and gallery arrange
Two questions about the new events capability:

There are many types of events that span multiple days; however, it appears the date entry field when creating events only supports a single day. Is this correct?

As someone else asked previously in this thread - but I didn't see any reply - is it possible to rearrange the listing of galleries selected for an event? This is particularly important for the multi-day type of events noted above, when there could be dozens of galleries associated with the event.

Thanks// Chris

First of all great job on adding the new packages and event features!!

As a sports photographer I to have the same predicament as jfriend. Is there possible addition to the favoraites feature that would just allow a customer to enter their email account upon entering my website and selecting their favorie photos connecting it to their email similar to Exposure Manager?

I can see how this would be a great asset but allowing anyone to create a favorites gallery in your account could really lead to some problems. Like getting 500 of them created for example!

The only way I could see this working is if they were able to request that a gallery be created and a confirmation message sent back to them once you approved. Otherwise it just gets out of control very easy.

Why do I care how many people create their own favorites galleries? They are for their benefit, not mine.

Maybe I am not clear on this...(probably not)...but I thought that each favorite gallery that someone makes is displayed in your list of galleries.

This could be done in a scalable fashion or it could be done so that as the site owner you only see the ones you want to see. It is a solvable problem. My point was that my viewers can't use favorites because I don't know my viewer's email addresses which is a big bummer.

Meanwhile, it's my understanding that competitive sites like Zenfolio let any viewer create their own collection of their favorite photos which they can then share with the site owner or anyone else. That's what I'm interested in.

I totally agree with you, it would be a huge asset, I was just thinking how it might be a problem. But like you say, there are workarounds.

I'm just wondering if SmugMug could come up with something similar to Exposure Manager in regards to having separate favorite attached to anyone's email account that entered their email account upon entering a photographer's website. Since I do mostly high school action sports I don't have the time nor is it feasible to enter everyone's information into a package.

For all you who want favorites for anyone with an email address, I've created a feature request on Smugmug's uservoice feature request system. If you want it, go vote for it.

If you've never used uservoice before, you don't have to create a separate login account. You can select OpenID and then enter your username.smugmug.com address and it will let you use your smugmug login for uservoice.

Kudos to the Smugmug team for releasing this feature. It makes my life as a wedding photographer much easier (brides can now choose their own favorites, no more emailing back and forth)

Just one niggle though:

I tried this out for myself, clicked on the link as a client, its cool I can tag photos as favorites, but when it was time to go back to the event page, I instinctively looked for a button called "Done Selecting Favourites" at the bottom or top of the page. Then I figured out that I had to use the breadcrumb link to go back.

Is there a way to add a button "Done choosing my faves" to the galleries?

thx!

All,

Event email features need some improvements... such as marking the people you've already sent an email to, email all people at once, and perhaps allow a selection of an existing coupon to be included.

If you like any of this, please vote!
