I was wondering if there was a way to reorder the images in a gallery once they have been placed in the gallery. Do I have to number or alphabetize the images in the order I want them and re-insert them for each page.

The pages already have image description info on them and I don't want to create a whole new gallery with the images in the prefered order so if there is a way without starting over I am interested.

Sorry, there's currently no feature for this. We're aware of the request, here's the tracker topic:

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.

So I would have to re-number/re-alphabetize the images in what order I want them and upload them into a 'new' gallery to achieve this? (Start over but be smarter this time!)

OK, well something else to do ;) Thanks for the confirmation.

If the 'gallery name order' option is on, yes. Otherwise it is by date added.

I am finding an 'easier' method to achieve my goal. Since I cant reorder the way the images appear after inserting them in the gallery. I will use the order added format and move them from one gallery to the new gallery.

I do this at Content Management > Galleries > Edit image and then just move the page to the new gallery. I suppose this is not new to anyone but it had not occurred to me since my other site order images by their owner/author.

Someday ocPortal will allow the page also to appear under primary and secondary galleries.
