Folder landing page

Hi

I'm wondering if there is a way that I can put a page in a folder and have it so that if a visitor navigates to the folder they will get redirected to the page instead of seeing the galleries & other pages in the folder?

e.g.
visitor goes to www.mygallery.com/folder and gets redirected to www.mygallery.com/folder/page

Thanks
Grant

    Hi Grant,

    While we don't have a way to redirect a folder to a page if you have a power or higher account you can customize the folder and use it as a page or link to an actual page rather than the folder (this second option wouldn't work if using the breadcrumb to navigate, as the breadcrumb will remain pointing to the folder rather than page.)

    To edit the folder, while viewing it click Customize > Content and Design. Then, choose Make This Folder Custom. Now, changes you make will only affect this folder. Remove the folders, galleries, and pages content blocks by hovering over them and clicking the trashcan. Then, add the content you do want.

    If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask, we are always happy to help!

    Thanks Christina

    Actually using that method and customising the folder should do exactly what I need and allow me to not use the page at all.
    I don't know why I didn't think to try that

    I think you probably want the reverse of that. You can customize your folder (customize > content and design, then in the sidebar near “Folders” select “Just this Folder”) to remove the galleries, folders and pages blocks, then add what you want, including a link to a Page. The Page would then have your folders and galleries on it
