Questions and Comments Encouraged (please report any typos )
i already finished to read this tuttorial there really many things about group but nothing about those ''tags/links'' dont know how they calling but they let Admin understand in which folders (folders of his group) he copied artworks which were at first added to folder ''Featured'' of group
me need name of those tags i hope that you will say how exactly those ''tags or links'' calling.
please try to read this what i wrote two next messages under this 1 , also im sorry from my english.
its look likes so in Nature , in Flowers , in Forests and Trees , in Lanscap... you see ? in the end only ... and you cant to look in which other folders this or this artwork were copied and its very not cozy Admin should remember in which folder he already put and in which not yet put
so problem number 1 in that as you know folder have limit its near 5016 artworks more you cant to put in one folder need create new and move them from Featured to this new and only then keep to add new artworks in Featured
i created such folder and moved there but here appeared problem only in folder Featured system showed those links and i could get where in which folders i already copied and not do this again only in Featured system show those links
its problem number 1
now problem number 2 in Featured those how system showing links implemented im sry but not nice for exemple if you added artwork in many folders then system will show just first 3-4 and in end add ... like etc. but not letting to open some list where you can look where also this picture was put / copied in which folders
please sry my english
this phrase i tried to translate but not very got about but i think its about my problem tags which connecting artworks which were posted in folder ''featured'' so those tags connecting artworks with other folders in group (where those artworks where copied by Admin before) this phrase came in my mind after translate this your phrase
so how calling those in About just Nature , and etc ? i call them as tags cause i not very nice with english maybe you can tell me how they calling ?
do you sir think that the DA staff is slowly deleting this idea about tags?bcause their current state is confusing some of my artworks have them and other dont.as well as in the group.
I highly doubt they're removing tags, they've just started releasing this feature. This may just be a snag they've hit temporarily while pushing the feature live.
Do you notice that newer artwork has tags and older ones do not? I think the staff may have hidden them on older artwork due to complaints
What is the limit of folders you can have in a gallery?
For non-premium groups, i mean.
