Hi,

With the following gallery https://toriocphotography.co.uk/galleries/equestrian-photoshoots/equestrian-photoshoots/?sub=9d29f2e7080883aa2db6156c002d9bca it was taken on 2 different cameras with the date and time synced but some of them are out of order randomly. The photos are processed by lightroom and I was wondering can the order be manually rearranged with the names shown when doing the re-ordering to make it easier to identify the ones that are out of order?

Thanks,
Andrew

Under that Gallery, Under the "Photos" tab, you should have "Rearrange Photos" , you can sort the photos by Filename, Date taken, or manually arrange. Hope this helps.

Thanks Sean,

The photos are still out of order slightly because the gallery has been created using 2 cameras. Even with date and time sync I am not sure if the problem is down to lightroom processing or another issue.

Thanks,
Andrew

Maybe the date isn't being read on upload. Click one of the thumbnails in the admin and see if it has a date taken value like in the attached screenshot.

If not, then either that info was stripped before you uploading them or EXIF is not enabled in the PHP configuration. If you go to Settings -> Photo Settings there is a section that shows if EXIF is enabled or not in PHP.

Hi Tim,

Thank you for coming back to me. The date taken is set correctly and in the settings are showing that exif is enabled in PHP.

However if you look at https://toriocphotography.co.uk/galleries/equestrian-photoshoots/equestrian-photoshoots/?sub=efafaa41a287546de93ca68f3e20de55 after image 8, then it is showing 10, 11, 9 and the upload date is the one that is different. Is this what is knocking the sequence out and how that the date uploaded be changed when the photos are all processed at the same time from the folder that has been uploaded by FTP?

One other question to do with ordering, if you look at https://toriocphotography.co.uk/galleries/equestrian-events/ I would like the 2020 gallery then 2019, 2018 and then 2017. How can I change the order, in another sytist installation you can see the arrows to rearrange but this does not appear in the installation https://toriocphotography.co.uk/galleries/ installation.

Any suggestions why the arrows are not appearing, this is happening on firefox and chrome.

Thanks,
Andrew

I can't see the date/ time on those photos, but maybe they have the same time and causing them to go out of order?

By default the galleries are displayed by the gallery date descending (newest first). So you can change the gallery dates to change the display order.

You can also edit the section your galleries are in (edit under the section name in the left menu of the Site Content area) and:

click "Layouts" -> Page Listing Layouts , change the "Order pages by" option to "I will arrange the order" then you will be able to drag and drop the order of the galleries from the gallery list in the admin.
