Image Galleries

This section describes how to create an image gallery page for your website using the "Image Gallery" page type.

Note: Some Constitutions have strict rules regarding the pictures of members on masonic websites, and may require written permission from the members involved. Please check the website guidelines for your Constitution before publishing pictures of your members.

The Image Gallery page type displays a scrollable list of thumbnail images on the bottom of your page; when your visitors click on a thumbnail, the larger image is shown along with its title:

Creating an image gallery consists of three easy steps:

  1. Uploading your images on the Site Designer->Images page
  2. Creating a new menu item and page for your image gallery
  3. Adding your images to the gallery page

1. Uploading Images

Upload your images via the Site Designer->Images page.

2. Creating an Image Gallery Page

To create your image gallery page, navigate to the Site Designer->Menu and click the add button next to the Menu Item you wish your gallery to appear:
