I’m new to the website and just started a personal gallery of my collection.   I’ve tried to sort the files and the message indicates they have been re-indexed but the sort is not applied when I enter the gallery.   The instructions say:

The custom sort order you can specify on this page will only be taken into account if:
the admin has set the "Default sort order for files" in the config to "Position descending" or "Position ascending" (global setting for all users who haven't chosen another sort option individually)
the user has chosen "Position descending" or "Position ascending" on the thumbail page (per user setting)

I have searched for a couple of days and can’t find a “position Ascending/Descending” setting that I can change.   Its probably right in front of me but if anyone can help me navigate to effect a sort of my collection gallery, I would appreciate it.

I use 'Position +', and I don't know why everyone doesn't.

you upload your coin, then hit 'Sort My Pictures' (or Files, or whatever it says), and then you can move them wherever you want them. no ridiculously long file names, no inevitably obsolete numbering systems, just a one time arrangement and voila', you're organized.

you do have to re-hit 'Position +' again each time you clear your cache, but that's easy enough.

Enodia,
     Thanks.   Once I located the "Position +" item in the upper right hand corner of the thumbnail view.  I was able to select it and my sorting worked.

Actually, no it doesn't.  It seems to sort properly to my specifications in thumbnail view only, but If i enter the collection from the members gallery list index, the order in which I added the coins is displayed and the sort order is ignored.

If you say so,  I've  never used that index. I always access my gallery from the link in my signature line or a bookmark.

Enodia, Thanks for your help.   I have solved my problem with your guidance, and simply by reading the headings on the site (duh!).   When I click on "my gallery", it takes be to the page where the main content is "Last additions" which are by design sorted by the order they were added.  If I click on my signature line, all is arranged correctly.

Steve B5,

Welcome to the Forum and thank you for starting this exceptionally informative gallery.  Thanks also for your website, which I have come to depend on!  

In designing your gallery, you might consider creating separate "albums" as a means of separating the various anonymous series.  I've done this in my Roman Republican gallery (linked below) to create an organizational framework.  It might help as you start to add additional series beyond Cr 44.
