Stage page to show in Galleries

I am new to TTG and so far I have managed to set up a test site, but I can't get a Galleria slideshow to show on my Galleries page. I have put the exported folder in the TTG-BE > Templates > Gallery, but it doesn't show up on my Galleries page.
I am obviously doing something wrong. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks

Re: Stage page to show in Galleries

Are you using Publisher?
Have you followed this: http://ce4.theturninggate.net/docs/doku … _home_page
can you provide a link to your site?

If you replace the Galleries page with a Galleria slide show, you'll lose the autoindexing feature for the Galleries page.

Re: Stage page to show in Galleries

Many thanks for your reply. Yes, I am using Publisher. I want to have an index of albums that show as a slideshow, rather than a page full of thumbnails. I don't want to use the slideshow that comes with the Galleries plugin, as it takes up too much of the screen.

This is not possible.

Many thanks for the reply. I find that rather disappointing as I am able to achieve this with the now defunct Slideshow Pro for Lightroom, albeit Flash based. I guess I will have to write it off as a loss.

Your help has been much appreciated.

Re: Stage page to show in Galleries

maybe we're not talking about the same thing?

The Galleria slide show is in essence a gallery of images. It can only be that and was never represented as anything but that.

My understanding is that you want it to act as an index that will lead to albums. Galleria was not made for that.

These are the options you have for displaying albums in an index (like the Galleries page):

Re: Stage page to show in Galleries

You're correct we are not. I want to publish albums that will show in the Index, then when an album is chosen, it will open as a slideshow rather than thumbnails.

P.S.

Using Stage, I publish a Galleria slideshow to my Home page using 'page-gallery'. Then using Stage, I publish albums to my Galleries page using 'galleries'. This appears to be working!!

Thanks again, much appreciated
