Hello arsarihalim

If you wish to have the thumbnails become larger, you will need to create them. To create clickable thumbnails on your site, please follow these steps.

1. Upload the thumbnails (these are the small versions of your pictures) and the corresponding full-sized photos into the File Manager.
2. Drag and drop a Text Widget on to your page and add the thumbnails by clicking on the "Picture" button (the one with the green tree) on the Text Editing Toolbar.
3. Click on the "Add Page" button. Name it something logical like "photo1" and be sure that the "Show in Navigation" box is NOT checked. Your new and empty page will load up ready for you to add the corresponding photograph. Add your large-sized picture to this page using a Picture Widget.
4. To make the thumbnail link to the full-sized image, click on the thumbnail picture. Then choose the "Link" button on the Text Editing Toolbar.
5. The Link Editor will open up. It will allow you to create a link to the relevant page. Browse for the page you want and click "OK".
6. Save and republish your site so that your changes will be reflected on your live site.

Alternatively, you could use Flickr Gallery. The Flickr Gallery Widget allows you to quickly and easily create a slick photo gallery with thumbnails that link to the larger images in your Flickr photostream. For more information on adding Flickr to your site, please click on this link: Flickr Galleries.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if it does not.

thanks Sanja.. i think its the way i knew it...but i think its really annoying us to create page first and full it with right photo and then we link the small photo to created page.?

do you know any Automatically way that once click on small picture and then it automatically will open it in a new link in a page ?

and i think we need to create more than 100 pages and we should link them all ourselves in each section which we need then we might have a very long list of pages in our site....so i prefer for Yola site the work for promotion of this that it does some linking in some field automatically..what do you think ?

thanks over all....

Hi Haroon

If you are going to create a lot of pages with pictures, then I suggest you use a photo gallery application such as Flickr Gallery. You will need to create an account with Flickr if you do not have one already.

Once you have uploaded your pictures to your Flickr account and created your Gallery, you can add to your Yola site. We have a detailed tutorial here: Photo Galleries, Portfolios and Presentations.

Hope this helps! If you have any questions or need more assistance, please let us know.

Thank you
Nazlie

thanks Nazlie,

it was so nice what you said about flickr,

and as i have experience about some more sites, some of them have some good system for their sites..and when u putting picture ,, then they have Slide show system and also site gives automatically link to the small picture and when your clicking on it. it preview to you a big size picture, so i think that brings so easiness, and we dont need ourselves to create page and put picture there and link it to the small picture,

so can you tell me if Yola also will have any plan or already made for that to make such system?

Thanks Nazlie iam so questioner person, sorry

Hi Haroon

It's good to hear that you have researched and found other systems that will work for you, including slideshow presentations.

Yola is constantly developing the Sitebuilder and adding new widgets to help you create your site. We do not currently have such a feature on our roadmap, but it may be something that we add in future versions of our Sitebuilder.

Thank you for your feedback and questions.
