    Default Gallery: Sorting order of photo appearance

    There's an inbuilt sort function near the bottom of the page in each gallery that allows you to sort the photo order according to your selection. This feature is non-permanent, and will be reset back to the gallery default (newest photos appear first) when you next enter the gallery.

    The area of the page that allows you to manipulate the sort order is shown below, and each of the various options noted below that.



    Sort by:
    Filename - Sorts the gallery alphabetically
    Filesize - Sorts the gallery by file size (not much practical use apart from admins looking for the huge disk-hogging files)
    Rating - Sorts by photo rating. Although enabled in Trawler Photos, this isn't used, so the sort is pointless.
    Last Comment - Sorts the gallery according to the posting date/times of comments.
    Posted Date - The default setting. Sorts according to the last posted photo.
    Views - Sorts the gallery according to the number of views each photo has received.

    Each of the options above is used with the following to determine how far back the sort should go.

    Timeframe:
    Beginning - include all photos from when the gallery was first started.
    Last Year - include all photos from the last year (rolling 365 days).
    Last 2 Months - include all photos from the last 2 months (rolling 60 days I think...)
    Last 45 Days - include all photos from the last 45 days (rolling 45 days).
    Last Month - include all photos from the last month (rolling 30 days I think...).
    Last 2 Weeks - include all photos from the last two weeks (rolling 14 days).
    Last Week - include all photos from the last week (rolling 7 days).
    Last 3 Days - include all photos from the last three days (rolling 36 hours).
    Last Day - include all photos from the last day (rolling 24 hours).

    The final of the three sort options used in conjunction with each other is the order.

    Order:
    Ascending - Sorts the gallery in ascending order (for example, if the filename option is chosen above and ascending order then the results will be from A to Z, with A being on the first page).
    Descending - sorts the gallery in descending order (for example, if the filename option is chosen above and descending order then the results will be from Z to A, with Z being on the first page).

    Quick Jump:
    This is a list of all galleries within the site. Selecting one from the list and then clicking the Go button will take you directly to the selected gallery.

    All these options are really just a search of the gallery and a sort on the results. They are non-permanent and do not damage or interfere with the gallery or the database in any way.

    They present the best way to display the results that you are interested in and should be used accordingly.
