Silva CMS: image gallery

An image gallery will appear as a link in the left-hand navigation for users to click on and view the images.

Work with image galleries

  • You may want to give users access to a number of photos which you can put in a gallery, allowing users to see all the photographs in one place.
  • The Gallery will always become a link in the left-hand navigation bar. It is up to you to decide in which Folder you would like to place the Gallery.
  • The example below makes the Gallery visible on the homepage.
