Can I manually move galleries right next to folders on same page?

Hi All - It seems by default, if you have folders and galleries on the same page, the folders are all at the top and then the galleries below. What I'd like to do is to manually move galleries right next to folders on the same page? Can you do this? Or no, folders can only be in the same place as other folders and galleries can only be next to galleries? Some of the galleries I'd like to move to the very top of the page as I think they are 'better' than some folders with other galleries in them. I tried doing this in organizer and it wouldn't take.

Here i the page in question: https://www.paintbypixels.com/Galleries

    Using the default gallery and folder boxes, folders and galleries are always in groups, not intermixed.

    If you want a page that contains a mix of intermingled folders and galleries then create a page and place a Folders, Galleries, and Pages content block on it. You will then need to select the items in the order in which you want them to show on the page.

    Hello all - I'm just coming back to this. As of right now, under my main gallery page I have 10 folders and about 40 galleries in total on the site. Last night I tried creating a page and moving around the blocks for folders, galleries and pages. But wasn't really sure what I was doing and didn't make any progress.

    I'm wondering how much time/effort would it be to do this? I'm worried that I will have to redo major work if I want to mingle in folders and galleries on the same page. Yes or no?

    Moving around the blocks of folders, pages, and galleries won't do what you are asking.

    As I responded earlier, if you want a page on your site where the three entities are intermixed you will need to create a page containing a Folders, Galleries, and Pages content block. Then select the items you want to show on that page. They must be selected in the order in which you want them to show on the page.

    Steps:
    1. Create a page
    2. Drag a Folders, Galleries, and Pages content block onto the page.
    3. Select from "Items I choose"
    4. Select the items you want to see in the order in which you want to see them

    That worked! AWESOME. Sorry Denise for asking the same question again. This is what I created: https://www.paintbypixels.com/Test-Mix/n-G5Drcj

    Also is there a way to add a bit of space in-between the cover photo section and the photos below it? Or this might be a different post.
