You have to login into Flickr and Smugmug. Or register if you dont have either one. You should be able to replace their photos with your own after that. :)

Also, drag and drop the smugmug widget into the area you want to place it. Click edit, properties, and just change the address to your Smugmug gallery address. Same as Flickr :)

For the Flickr, on properties there is no address. It asks for an email. Do i put mine? I do not have a gallery on email, so I do not understand.

Hi Sarah's

Using the Flickr Lightbox widget allows you to quickly and easily create a
slick photo gallery.

1) In the Content sidebar in SynthaSite, open the Photo Gallery folder
2) Drag and drop a Flickr Lightbox widget onto your page
3) In the properties sidebar: enter your Flickr account email address (usually a Yahoo! address) in the email address field
4) In the "Photo Count" field, enter the number of images you want to display.
5) In the "search" field, enter the tags of the photos you want to pull
from Flickr (make sure you have added tags to your Flickr photos or you
will not get the desired resultl)
6) Specify how many columns you want for your photo gallery
7) Click on the Image Size drop down menu to select: small square, thumbnail or medium sized images.
8) Finally, choose between a "modern" and a "plain" style for your photo gallery images.
9) Click the Apply button to update your photo gallery.

All done! Now save and preview your page. You will have a gallery of
clickable images. In the top right hand corner of the large view of the
images, click the "next" button to view the next image in the gallery.
Click the "close" button when you are finished browsing through your
gallery.

Note: If there are privacy settings on your Flickr photos the search will
not be successful. The photos need to be publicly available for it to
work.

We have a great tutorial for you to view, please click here Photo Galleries

Hi Sarah,

Congratulations on getting your photos to show on your site!!

You can put multiple videos on a page. If you get the message "this video is no longer available" it means that it has been removed from YouTube, or it's settings have been changed. This is an issue with YouTube and there is not much I can suggest except to choose different videos.

I'm sorry I don't have better news for you.

"this video is no longer available" means that Youtube deleted them.

why are my pictures in the file manager but not in image? I am trying to add them to the page but it wont let me because they are for some reason saved under all files but not images. I uploaded them all the same, from the same place, the same size and only one has shown up under images.
