Ignite Gallery

Setup Ignite Gallery Profiles

A profile determines how the images in an Ignite Gallery category are displayed.

The SAS Web Development Team can build these profiles for you if you are not able to; if needed, submit a work order.

Normally it is a good idea to create 2 basic profiles: a main gallery profile, and a thumbnails-only profile:
