The Gallery Module is a great way to showcase team photos and videos via Flickr(photos) or YouTube (videos). You must first create albums (Flickr), and playlists (YouTube) on your personal or club accounts.
*Note: If you ever make changes to your photos/videos on Flickr, or YouTube, the changes will automatically reflect in your Gallery as well.
Steps to Edit a Gallery Module:
- Go to any inner page and drag the Gallery Module onto the page.
- Enter a Title if you wish, and select a Pane and location for your Gallery to appear in. Click Add. See Steps to Add Content to a Page.
- Once you add a Gallery Module, hover over the edit pencil and select Gallery Settings.
- Insert your Flickr, Picasa, or YouTube RSS URL in the RSS URL box. *Note: Please see below for the necessary steps for finding your RSS URL on either Flickr or YouTube.
- You also have the option to display your photos in the Gallery as a horizontal or vertical layout. *Note: Make sure to choose the layout under the correct option depending on whether you’re linking to Flickr, Picasa, or YouTube.
- Click on Save Changes. Your Gallery is now ready!
- *Note: If you ever make changes to your photos/videos on Flickr, or YouTube - the changes will automatically reflect in your Gallery as well.
