Galleries on home page

I am wondering if there is any options that will let the homepage have galleries displayed instead of pictures form a gallery? For example I would like the homepage to display galleries with head shots, portraits and events.

    There are some directory style layouts if you want to use those. These will display thumbnails for your groups and galleries instead of using a homepage slideshow.

    You can change your layout to one of these by being in your Edit View's Dashboard and going to:
    - My Zenfolio > Customize Visitor View
    - Layout
    - Scroll to the bottom to find the directory style ones.

    I am a newbie, so far most of zen sucks, I wanted my visitor to be be thumnails with numbers or file names. So I can edit what clients selects....other that a favorites box, not able to set this up like I want, may go back to my last hosting service. zen was quick to reply when on my trial, as soon as I sign up, no reply from an issue

    I'm trying to display galleries with titles on my homepage ... but when I follow these directions (from above):
    - My Zenfolio > Customize Visitor View
    - Layout
    - Scroll to the bottom to find the directory style ones.
    I get a blank homepage. Thanks for any help.

    I have the same desire and problem as Colin Purrington. I select one of the directory layouts, but nothing but the menu apears on the page -- no galleries. Is there a missing step?

    Hi Douglas!

    When using the Directory style layout, the option to show the All Photographs group needs to be set to show in Options > Page Elements.

    Alternatively, you could show galleries with titles by using one of the two Fullscreen with photo grid layouts, and making the grid content display a Group. This will display each of the galleries in that group as a thumbnail on the homepage. You could then set the titles of each gallery to show in Options > Thumbnails tab > Titles: Show. You could also change how the titles are then shown on the thumbnail by changing the Text & button placement behavior from the dropdown menu in Options > Thumbnails tab.

    If you have any other questions about this, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Support Team!
