Ramses, I'm glad to know someone else is interested in the FAQ as well ...
Just to get started, I wrote some answers below. But beware!!! English is *not* my native language!!!
So, the answers below are probably not the best way to answer those questions, and explain the gallery features... Btw, I apologize for any mistake in advance (english/feature description/...).
(Brian, this is just a sugestion, but I think it would be a good idea to have someone of your trust to properly collect, correct, and "compile" the FAQ, so you may eventually ship it together with the gallery)
Okay, here goes my humble contribution:
| Can I search the gallery? |
You can search for images based on username, word(s) in the image description, replies, or just in the subject, by date, and only in particular category.
To access the search feature, click on the "search" link below the nav bar at the top of the gallery pages. (Attention, the "search" link on the nav bar is for searching the forum, and not the gallery).
In addition, if you are browsing a category, you can search it clicking on the "Search This Category" link.
You can search any category that you have permission to search - you will not be allowed to search through private categories unless the administrator has given you the necessary security rights to do so.
What is "My Favorites"?
Whenever you find an image in the gallery that you like, you can add it to your list of favorites. Then, you can easily access and view your favorite images though the "My Stuff" menu.
In order to add an image to your list of favourites, click on the "Add to Favourites" link inside the "Image Tools" menu, located just above the image, at the right side.
Can I be notified about new posts or replies?
Yes. If you want to receive an email whenever a new image or reply is posted, you should subscribe to a category or to an individual image.
To subscribe for updates in a category, you should click in "Subscribe to This Category" in the "Category Tools" menu. In this case, you will receive an email whenever a new image is posted in this category.
To subscribe for updates in an image, you should click in "Receive Email Updates" in the "Image Tools" menu. In this case, you will receive an email whenever a new reply is posted to this image.
Can I send an image from the gallery to a friend?
You can send an e-Card to a friend. In this case, you write your message to your friend, and submit it through the gallery. Your friend will receive an email notifying that he/she has received an e-Card from you, and a link to where this e-Card can be viewed. The e-Card may be available for only a short period of time predefined by the administrator.
What types of files can I send to the gallery?
Each category in the gallery may have different settings for allowed types and sizes of images. In order to know what types of files you can upload, you should click in the link "View Allowed Extensions" in the upload page.
If you have other ideas for the FAQ, please let me know.
