Hello, you should make the PhotoGallery widget put the newest uploads to the top, because this is well... a basic? If not by default, but by an option. It's a HUGE PAIN to have to scroll through a HUGE gallery to put your newest uploads to the top of the gallery.

Why would you want your newest photos to the bottom anyways? No reason really.

Hello Viscouß (I like your creative username)

Well, the Picture Gallery Widget is not designed to work like a blog or anything similar. It's a completely customizable feature that does not provide any automated processes, such as for sorting the images used etc. If you'd like the timely order you described, a blog feature like our Tumblr Widget may be a better solution for you. Or you could use Flickr in case they provide the sorting order you have in mind.

Otherwise users may find it useful that pictures they add are not sorted in a certain way automatically. If e.g. you'd like to show the progress of a working process, you may not want the final result to display as the first picture (e.g. like on this crochet website).

However, I will forward your suggestion for optional sorting to our specialists. Thank you for your feedback on our Picture Gallery Widget.

Hello, I have tried the flickr options with your added widget, but It does not meet what I need, as you're limited to what is shown, up to 30 images.

Maybe with the option, not to do it manually, but perhaps and option that you can enable, a little check box, which would sort them by date added or something like that.

Would be for great help as, well to put it simply, the Yola Gallery is better than the Flickr or Tumblr widgets. Plus, it's nice to keep everything related to Yola, rather than having to go through third parties.
