About Image Galleries

image galleries home page

Fakoli uses image galleries to organize all images used on a site. Access to the image galleries can be controlled by user role, with different permission rules applied to different galleries, and access to entire galleries can be turned on and off. 

There are two ways to view images:

  • Thumbnails: view by thumbnail images
  • Detailed List: view by image title, image file name, and upload date

To create and manage image galleries in the Admin section, navigate to Site Content > Images.
