SMF Photo Galleries

  1. You may have noticed that we now have a special area for our "Q-view".. it's called Galleries and is accessed via the "Photos" link" at the top of the page.

    You will notice that it is divided into categories:
    • Smokers
    • Events and Gatherings
    • Beef
    • Pork
    • Poultry
    • Fish & Seafood
    • Wild Game
    • Sides & Desserts
    • Bacon & Sausage
    This is a great way to show off pictures that we place into albums and it is very important that they are categorized correctly and named correctly to help people find them easier.

    Be sure to be as specific as possible when naming the folders/albums. 

    Instead of "Weekend Smoke" or "I love to smoke meat" try naming them something like "smoked chicken on the Lang smoker" or Ribs, Brisket and Pulled Pork for Christmas smoke", etc.

    You get the idea.

    It also helps if you put the albums in the correct category such as Smokers, Beef, Wild Game, etc.

    If you already have albums and they are showing up as "Uncategorized", consider moving them to a category following these easy steps:

    1. Click on the album

    2. Click on "Edit Album"

    3. Click on the drop down arrow next to the "Album Category" list and select the appropriate category

    4. Click on the "Save" button at the bottom right and you're all done.

    At this time, we have more than 700 albums in the "Uncategorized" category and everyone's help is appreciated in getting these sorted to the correct categories.

    Enjoy looking through the galleries and if you have any questions just let me know.. if I don't know the answer, then I'll do my best to find out and get back to you.

    The galleries area is just for saving or storing pictures into albums/folders much like you would on facebook, photobucket or even your own computer. You can then make a post and insert the pictures from the gallery into your post or thread. As an added benefit, you can go directly into galleries and just look at the pictures if you prefer.

    So we do not place Q-view in the regular forum categories?

    Hi everyone!
    I just saw this thread and used my magic powers to add two new photo categories: Cheese and Nuts. You can now see them in the dropdown list when you create new image galleries or work on correctly categorizing your existing image galleries! Cheers and happy holidays to y'all!

    No problem, Jeff. I wasn't trying to stump you or your tech team, I just understand what you're trying to accomplish with these new Q-view categories and wanted to make sure I didn't step on a landmine when I posted my cheese. BTW, thanks for SMF, I love it! Merry Christmas and a prosperous New year!

    Oh man.. I knew I was forgetting something! I will have them add another category to include cheese and nuts. If it's not available by the time you get ready to post, just put it under bacon and sausage and you or I can move it once the Cheese category gets created.
    Thanks for asking about that;-)

    I just did a bunch of cheese and plan to Q-view it for all to see this weekend. What catergory would you like me to put it in? Bacon/sauage? Sides/Desserts? Please advise. Thanks!
