How to create a photo gallery

One of the useful functions of Plone is the ability to display the same content in different ways. You can use this feature to have Plone create an attractive photo gallery by just adding photos to a folder.

Here's how you do it:

  1. Create a Folder.
  2. Find "Display" in the content menu bar, and set that folder's display mode to "thumbnail view".
  3. Create folders within the folder you just created. Each of these subfolders could be considered an "album".
  4. Upload images into those folders.

Your top level folder will display a thumbnail of the first image in each subfolder, and the subfolders will display thumbnails of the images they contain.  You can add and delete new photos and folders at any time, and your gallery will be immediately updated.
