Managing Gallery Pages


(Rhett Regina Owings) #1

I am now using DPW as my main website. On my old website I had a page to list comments by patrons who have purchased my paintings. It was nice to see all those positive feedbacks.

I have been trying to figure out how to do this on DPW. The Manage Gallery Pages only has the followings types of pages to add: EVENTS, PRINTS & STORE.

Anyone have a suggestion on how to do this? David, is there a way to add another page so we can sort of free-write what we would like on it?

This may be more involved than what you’re looking for, but here’s what I’ve rcently done.

I created a blog on Blogger and used a static home page and page tabs to made it look like a website, and directed my domain name to it. The “Gallery” tab currently links to my DPW gallery, though with more work, I could create gallery pages there, too/instead. Blogger lets you create as many as 20 pages, and there are work-arounds if you need even more. My “News” tab actually links to a separate blog I’ve had for years. I am no part of a programmer, nor am I proficient in HTML; but I did it myself in a couple of days by Googling “how to… [whatever I wanted to change or create]”.
My “website”

Well you have given me something to think about. I am not sure how to do this, but will investigate. I am not sure what a “static” home page is, but I will try to find out. Linking to my blog is a good idea.
Where in California are you located? I see you entered the Ironstone show. So did I for the first time.

I’m in Rocklin. I went to art school in San Francisco with Chris Gomez, who runs theshow. So I do that show because it’s like a class reunion. :slight_smile:
