    i hope you don't mind me bothering you about this...:

    Last My Cafe Event i posted all Car Orders and the Event's over all costs and rewards. I didn't get the idea that many found it useful, so decided not to do it this Event, but now i'm wondering if i made the wrong choice... What do you think?

    i appreciate any advice,

    hope this finds you well,

    • Hi thesunstar! It's no bother at all, thank you for contacting me :)

      Our Discussions section isn't super active because most people use it to advertise their township or ask questions. But chances are people saw your post and did find it useful but unfortunately just didn't comment. That being said, I thought it was a great idea. In fact, although we do have a section for special event orders on the wiki, it only states the rewards players receive but not the basic requirements. If you want, we could create an article in the wiki to list the requirements, which might make it easier to update in the future and for people to find it. Let me know if you'd be interested in that.

      If not, there's always other event-related things that could be expanded on in the wiki. Usually I take whatever basic information about the event I find on My Cafe's social media and copy it into the Events article, but I'm horrible at completing events myself so I don't get to add more information than that. If you'd like, you can always update the Events section with more information on the storyline or you could even add to specific character pages. Sometimes the events reveal more information about the cafe's regular customers and a lot of the character pages are pretty bare, lol.

      I'm just throwing ideas out there, so no worries if you don't want to do any of them. Really, anything contributed to the wiki is very much appreciated, event-related or not :)

    • hi really sorry for not replying sooner!!

      as you can see i'm unfortunately not the most reliable person these days (not by nature, but due to being chronically ill and my illness having gotten much worse of late, plus a general overwhelmedness...lol..)... but that said i'd love to help, as often as i can and albeit in my own limited ways...

      i screenshotted pretty much everything from the last Event, so i could still fill in that info if it would help to have previous Event info (to for example compare future Events to).

      A new Event is starting, and i'll do my best to document that. Having a proper good home on this Wiki for more complete Event info would be great! Otherwise i could post it the way i did before.

      Sorry again.

    • I am really sorry to hear that you're not doing well and I sincerely hope that you're able to feel, at the very least, a little better soon. Taking care of your health is much more important, so there's no need to apologize. To be honest, I'm pretty used to people not replying back to me at all on here, lol.

      I want to thank you for offering your help with the Event orders. If you'd like to upload the screenshots, you can do so through Special:MultipleUpload to make it easier. I just created a new subpage called Events/Orders, so you can put any information you'd like there and update it whenever you're free to :)

      Thank you again!

    • Thank you so much for your understanding ☺

      so would i make a sub-page of the Events/Orders sub-page that is specifically this "Origami Event May/June 2020"? Subsections might be a bit much? i'm imagining... especially if loads of Event info is put up...? so that's why i was thinking of a subsection of Events/Orders with just a list of links to specific Events, so that Events/Orders can slowly be filled up with more general Event/Orders type info? i donno...

      sorry my turn to spitball 😷 lol.

      what did you envision? i want to make sure i know how to proceed before i make an organizational mess of things for you.

      Best wishes,

    • Any of those ideas is fine with me :) I was thinking there would just be a subsection in Events/Orders with the current event's orders listed in a table, which could be updated anytime there's a new event... I don't know, I'm not very creative, lol.

      So it just depends on what kind of information you'd like to put on there. For example, if you'd like to include screenshots, there could also be a gallery section. It's up to you :)

      Also, I hope you're feeling better!

    • I started...  

      i created a subpage for the Event.

      it isn't more creative than a subsection, i just thought it would be potentially useful to be able to see past Events for comparison with Future Events and putting them all in subsections would be a lot on one page... using just 1 subsection only with the current Event and replacing it everytime with a new Event means no archived Events to look back on.

      My Cafe keeps changing, and there are a lot of changes that indicate a trend of fewer rewards per Event.

      Having Events archived would help players better see and understand changes...

      no idea if it will actually get viewed and be found useful by others that way... 

      anyway i'll put up what i have on the Easter and Birthday past Events too at some point... just in case... 



      so this is what i have thus far:

      https://my-cafe.fandom.com/wiki/Events/Orders/Origami_May-June_2020_Event

      i wanted to make all costs be in medium-dark red and all rewards in medium-dark green, as well as add Spice images as icons next to corresponding Spices listed under costs and rewards, but couldn't figure out how to...

      so i hope it doesn't look too simple/boring so far... i'll add a pic of this Event's car and see if i can think of other ways to jazz it up.

      would love your thoughts! 



      as to whether i'm feeling better... it's all super relative (yes if we are comparing it to when i didn't reply for ages... well enough to give this reply & have worked on adding Event info to this Wiki - which is actually pretty awesome/rare for me)...as for being actually better... i've been ill for about 10 years, so that's unlikely to happen at this point i'm afraid... 



      i really hope i'm not making a mess of things! please don't hold back in telling me if i am! no need to sugar coat anything! i mean that.

      Edit: also please tell me if this page i've created is just going to be deleted when the next Event starts. If so then i just have to stop and give up on the whole thing. The majority of players will always be ahead of what i publish - i just can't work fast enough. So this will only be useful to those who are unusually slow at completing the Event, for those not able to do the Event but want to catch up/miss less, and for those who want to look back on it for whatever reason. So if it is deleted when the next Event starts than it will only have been useful to a handful of stragglers and as much as i'd like to help even if it is just for 1 person - it is simply too hard on me to justify that... i actually probably shouldn't be doing this at all... i just really wanted to... and i've decided i'm going to try and finish this Event - but only if you are sure it isn't temporary.

      i hope you're doing well.

      Best wishes,

    • Sorry, thesunstar, I meant to reply to you much earlier! But I've recently rescued a baby chick that wandered into my backyard, so I haven't been online very much. Thankfully, although I couldn't find its actual home where it came from, I found someone to take care of him, so if you reply back and I don't respond tonight or tomorrow, it's likely because I'm busy with him or (if it's tomorrow) busy dropping him off at his new home. But I really do want to apologize for not replying sooner!

      I am super excited for this new section of the wiki :) The page looks great! And I love the idea of having subpages for each event to archive how orders have changed. Also, you made an excellent point: being able to compare how event orders change over time will be really helpful and I'm sure other users agree too. Having those events archived is a great idea, so don't worry, none of your work will be deleted.

      I'll work on organizing everything into separate tables so people don't have to scroll too much if that's all right with you. You don't have to make the tables when you go to add in information, unless you want to. I don't mind adding the tables in. Perhaps we can put the images in a gallery for the orders they pertain to. And I'll make the background table cells of the requirements and rewards columns a dark red and green like you wanted. I'll start working on it on Wednesday :)

      If you'd like to add icons of spices, you need to switch to the Source Editor and use the [[File]] tag to get the image file you want and add a parameter to resize the image to an icon.

      • First, just add the file name like so: [[File:Star Anise.png]]. All the file names for spice images are similar, with the full name of the spice capitalized and a space between words if the spice is greater than one word. So, rose petals would be [[File:Rose Petals.png]]; anise would be [[File:Anise.png]], and so on.
      • Next, separate the filename from the image size parameter with a bar | and type in the image size you want, such as 25px: [[File:Star Anise.png|25px]]
      • Now that we've got the image sized down to an icon, you can just type the spice name next to it. [[File:Star Anise.png|25px]] Star Anise
      • When you're finished, it'll show up like this: Star Anise Star Anise

      Don't feel obligated to do all that stuff though! I can take care of it. I just use any excuse to type out code honestly XD But I thought I'd share in case you ever wanted to try it out. And feel free to ask me any questions about how to do something and I'll do my best to answer.

      In terms of updating, even if you can't finish an event, it's totally okay. I don't want you to feel rushed either to complete events, so take your time and enjoy the story and the game! I will also make a point to try harder to finish them to help update the event subpages as well :)

      Thank you for everything you've done so far and for all your hard work!

    • Aww, i'm thankful it was your backyard of all the yards the chick could've stumbled onto!

      how'd it go? got any pics?


      you replied pretty quickly in my opinion: so no worries!


      thank you for all you've said: all my worries/doubts are gone! i'm also relieved you like it so far.


      Tables! guess that shows how new to this i am! lol of course a table would make the Car Orders a million times better!! 

      in that case i think it would make more sense if the Gifts and Diamonds were each on their own seperate Row of the Table. That would be more how it actually looks/feels in game.

      So for example i think we should delete the Pink Gift under Rewards of Order 1 and add it to its own seperate Row... if that makes sense? As ingame you do the orders, and pay their costs and get their rewards, but it is reaching certain milestones that award you a Gift or Diamonds. you get awarded these milestone gift/diamonds seperately from the rewards of the order.

      i hope i'm explaining this okay! 😅 sorry

      cool that adding green for Rewards and red for Costs will then be possible.  i didn't really care about which shade of red and green really, i only suggested medium-darkish as i was thinking the text colored, but for the table/background i imagine different shades than medium-darkish might be needed for better contrast/legibility... ?  i donno..nor mind.. whatever looks best ☺


      thank you for explaining how the icons work. that's super handy to know, and i really do want to try and learn what i can ☺


      2 Nutmeg Nutmeg  


      (testing..above...) i think i did it! 😁 hmmm maybe bigger icons (if they fit well inside the table) would make it easier to skim read... the icon of nutmeg above is 40px - bigger (than the 25px) but still, i think, looks fairly okay next to this size text...? anyway...something i might want to play around with. ☺


      thank you so much for everything and for wanting to help me with this!!! 😃

      Best wishes,

      p.s.

      test... Pink Gift 25 huh that's strange i can get the image i uploaded (25 Diamonds pic) in the way you taught me but it is named "25 .png" not the "25Diamonds.png" which is what i uploaded it as... weird...!

      p.p.s. i didn't add screenshots of Car Orders as i thought it might be too confusing for others as the recipes will differ per player depending on their level. i also am not even the highest level (i strategically slowed down my leveling majorly when i hit level 30 - i'm only 34 now). i do have screenshots of every car order - so i could still add them if you think it's helpful and don't think it'll just be confusing.

    • Yes, I have pictures! I honestly should have taken more, but I did take some videos so I can listen to his cute chirping whenever I miss him ;(

      IMG 1146 IMG 1127

      The family he went to unfortunately didn't realize how young he was and their flock is old enough to where they might peck at or hurt him. They said the chick we found was less than a week old, and we had him for 4 days, so he was pretty much fresh out of the egg when he escaped from his home! But fortunately, they do have a family friend who have a flock of week-old chicks, so they're sending him over to them so he can grow up with chickens his own age :)

      We honestly would have kept him, but our "backyard" is more like a parking lot because the landlord had the bright idea of cementing over the entire thing, lol. So he wouldn't have had grass or soil or much of anything to explore over here. Plus, we have a cat and two dogs, and I didn't want him to be in a stressful environment. I do miss the little guy a lot though :(

      And yes, I think adding the milestone rewards for the orders in a separate row is a great idea! For the green and red colors, I was thinking of doing a dark green and red for the table header where the title of the column would be and then a lighter green and red for the actual background of the table cell where the rewards and costs would go. But I'll see how it looks first. Also, the 40px icon size looks good! :)

      If it makes it easier, I can make a template for the gift sizes. We do already have a template for diamonds, rubies, coins and tickets that size them down to better fit inside lines of text.

      • Diamonds: {{Diamond}} 25 = Currency Diamond 25
      • Rubies: {{Ruby}} 100 = Currency Ruby 100
      • Coins: {{Coin}} 1,000 = Currency Coin 1,000
      • Tickets: {{Ticket}} 5 = Ticket 5

      So you're more than welcome to use those if it helps!

      Otherwise, if you'd like me to rename your images to make it easier for you to tell them apart, I can do that too. I have no idea why it would've renamed them honestly :\

      You're right, I think adding screenshots for each order would be a bit too much. But perhaps for the story we can add the existing images you have to a gallery to make it easier for visitors to navigate through? Let me know what you think :)

      cool!


      i have the info for the all the rest of the orders now. i tried adding in a table myself to continue your work but there's this problem i've been having with the Editor that i've managed to deal with so far, but it makes setting up a table not very doable...

      basically whenever i do anything in the Editor it constantly throws me to the top of the Article. So i click the "edit" link next to the Order i want to edit and it throws me to the top. i carefully scroll to the bottom (not easy as it wants to grab every image on the way down), finally get there and tap on the spot i want to type into and it throws me back up to the top of the Article again. If i tapped correctly then i can start typing blindly and it will go to near the text i'm typing (though as i'm typing from time to time it'll throw me back up again... it will always do that if i need to tap a word/letter to fix a typo for example), and if i insert an image it will put the image down but right away after (before i can do anything) it'll throw me back to the top. i then go back down, successfully grab the image to edit it etc - when done i'm forced back to the top...

      ...and that is what i've had to deal with the entire time i've been working on the Article. i refuse to believe this is normal and what you deal with constantly... i hope i'm not wrong in that regard, because it gets so frustrating - i can't imagine having to always work like that to the extent you have!!

      at any rate, with the table i get to where i want to put it and insert it - get thrown to the top - get to it and tap on it to try and do something with it and get thrown to the top again without having accomplished anything... so i'm kinda stumped.

      i'm going to put in the missing orders' info without the tables for now - i know it'll look weird and out of place without the tables, but i really want to give people the info as quickly as possible and i don't know how else...sorry...

      As for the gallery idea for the Storyline screenies: i was using the pictures i put up to help tell the Story. i chose my words knowing the images were where they were, and the images break up the text to keep it more interesting than just a wall of text. like i would say some stuff about a character and then have a pic of the character saying something as part of the story... again not sure if i am explaining things very well...

      maybe this example will help better explain what i mean:

      ExampleOrigamiEventStoryline






      what Laura says continues from what i've written as she further describes it, and that image with her saying that is more comical than if i were to just in further text quote her. The image also gives off a bit of the game's own atmosphere into the article. Furthermore, this image without context in a sea of other pics in a gallery might not even make a lot of sense.


      anyway, if this strategy doesn't fit with the style of the rest of the wiki - or doesn't look good for what ever reason - then i understand if we need to change it.

      some ideas on how to do a bit of both:

      In the beginning there are a bunch of pics in a row as part of a Laura introduction... i guess maybe inbetween the text "Legend has it that to find these treasures one must first complete 3 heroic deeds. " and "Laura has a Map to help guide her. " we could add a gallery entitled Meet Laura ... with just those 5 Laura intro pics?


      Also worth noting: All the instructions on how to make an origami heart are in the pictures... there isn't text for that. How would we do that? like the section would be a gallery? would people be able to quickly navigate that if they want to be reminded as to how to make an origami heart?



      Again though: if   these ideas/the way the current page is like   doesn't fit then i understand if we need to change it.


      i can't thank you enough!! ☺

    • Yeah, I miss him a lot... The family that was going to take him in said that if I ever wanted him back (like in a few weeks when he's older) just to let them know and they'd arrange for it. But I know if I say yes or even just go for a visit, I'll want to take him home with me again and my house isn't fit for a chicken :( So no, I likely won't visit him, but I know that he'll be living a much better life where he is <3 Where they are, it's more like the countryside (or at least how "countryside" it can get in Southern California), whereas I'm in the city and live next to a noisy main street and even noisier freeway lol.

      ClassicEditor Menu

      For the Editor, I usually use the Classic Editor. The one that you get redirected to when you click 'Edit' on an article or next to a section takes you to the newer editor, which I don't use very much because it always skews table images and seems to add a lot of white space in the visual editor where there shouldn't be any.

      99% of the time I will be editing in Source mode using the Classic Editor. It's just easier to me and gives you more flexibility with customizing pages since Source mode is the only place where you can add CSS to elements (e.g., changing the background color of table cells). The Classic Editor's Source mode also highlights syntax, unlike the newer editor, so it makes it easier to differentiate between blocks of code. You should try it out! :) Also, see here and here if you'd like to learn about creating and customizing tables using wikitext. Feel free to ask me any questions if you have any.

      I'm not sure why it keeps scrolling to the top every time you try to edit though. What browser do you use? I'm using Chrome, but I'm not sure if that affects anything. You can try the Classic Editor and see if the visual mode on that one works better for you. The only downside is that you do have to scroll to the section you want to edit (you can't click 'Edit' directly on a section or page).

      For the gallery, I was thinking of just putting those first "Meet Laura" images in a gallery and keep the Map one out of the gallery and float it to the side (similar to the image in the Car Orders section). For the other sections in Story, those would be floated to the side and not in a gallery. But for the folding origami instructions, yes, I was thinking that section might just be a gallery. What do you think?

      This particular wiki uses a newer version of the gallery, so I'm not sure how well it would work putting the origami instructions in a gallery or how easy it would be for people to navigate through. But I can add the galleries in and if you prefer the article without them, they can always be removed :)

      Thank you so much for adding the remaining orders! I'll add in the tables right away. Also, thank you for all the content and images you've added too. This has been a really fun project to work on, although you honestly did all of the work :P I'll try to help out more in the next event (I'm still on Order #15 I think, lol).

      Thank you again, Thesunstar!

    • Sorry to hear you had a really rough day... It's almost impossible to think positively sometimes, especially when you feel as if nothing you do is going to matter or when your heart's just not in it, but just hold out for those moments of happiness and good times, because they will come again eventually!

      I'm not sure if you're part of the Discord server, but someone just now asked if anyone knew Charlotte's last order, so I directed them to the Events page. I used the orders you collected from the last event and put them in temporarily until I get through the orders myself so I can compare them to this event's. But they found it helpful!!

      I know it's just a small thing, but I hope it brightens up your day a bit knowing that your hard work paid off and you've been helping other people in the game :)

      Thank you, Thesunstar. I really appreciate everything you've added to the community and for, well, just overall being a nice person. I hope that things start looking up for you soon :)

    • thank you! that is great that someone found it useful ☺

      i have the first 11 orders (soon 12). i could help you confirm. i'll add the info here and if you have time (i saw your list of Contributions! you've been super busy!) or if i can get the Editor to keep from bugging out - we can just edit any orders that are different this Event.

      The Editor is really strange, it isn't a matter of the Classic vs non-Classic Editor... i've seen it on PC and it was a lot less buggy... sadly the last few years i became too disabled to use my PC outside of watching videos on it - and only that when it is connected to a bigger screen...lol.. poor thing...a sad fate for a brilliant gamer laptop...

      (i tried various things to get the Editor to work: different browsers... force Desktop version of the site, etc...)

      Any way, i could try the FandomWiki app and see how the Editor works on there. it irks me to have an app for what i should comfortably and happily be able to do via browser... but obviously it isn't comfortably or happily so i may have to reconsider.

      Also i was thinking to be less ambitious this time regarding helping with this Event... why don't we make the Story part a big Gallery with screenshots of the entire thing? i couldn't do that last time because i didn't screenshot some parts of it which i had notes on instead because i thought i was converting it all into a text, albeit detailed, summary. so doing a Gallery would have had confusing holes in it. this time i can make sure not to leave anything out and users of the site can almost go through the Event Storyline as they would have in the game (minus having to wait for certain customers to visit their cafe and the actual tapping on them). i won't screenshot every option though... in these Events it all leads down the same road any way, with maybe the customer saying a sort of yes/no in response and the rest being the same text. so i think screenshoting both replies would only bulk up the Gallery making it more tedious rather than actually providing any more fun/info.

      if you disagree then maybe next Event i'll screenshot each possible answer, if i'm able.

      If you, i, or someone else wants to go through the Gallery and write a text version of the full Story (or a quick/long summary) and add it to the Event later then that'll always be possible.

      i just find the Gallery idea both more doable for me (assuming i can figure out how to start it) as well as it should be quicker and thus hopefully i can get it all posted faster - getting people the info they might need sooner rather than later...

      thank you again for being so kind and understanding.

      Best wishes and hugs,

    • Thanks for the updated orders, Thesunstar! I've added them to the event's page. Also, a gallery sounds great. And yeah, we can always go back and type up the story based on the screenshots, so I think this will work really well!

      And sorry you can't use your gaming laptop as much anymore :( I've never had one, I've just sort of forced normal PCs to run games. Obviously, some of them are so laggy that I can't play, but I can play anything from like 20 years ago... and the Sims 4, lol.

      I really wish the editors weren't so buggy for you. I haven't tried out the Fandom app, but that might be a good option. If you do try it out, let me know if it works out. If it's still difficult to use, I don't mind creating the gallery, just let me know :)

      Adding a gallery to a page

      Both of these methods require you to upload the images beforehand and know their filenames. You can always check out Special:Images and find out their filenames from there.

      Visual Editor

      • To add a gallery in the Visual Editor, load up the editor and click this icon: Visual Editor Gallery
      • Next, use the search bar to find the images you uploaded and select them to add them to the gallery. When you have all the images you want, click "Apply changes".
      • Make sure to save the page so it gets updated with the new gallery.

      Classic Editor or Visual Editor in source mode

      Load up any editor in source mode (the Classic editor is the easiest to use for this in my opinion), and add the gallery tags where you want the gallery to be.

      • Use <gallery> to start the gallery and </gallery> to end it. Both tags are required!
      • Next, put the filenames of the images you want (each on its own line) within the tags you wrote above.
      <gallery>
      Image1.jpg
      Image2.jpg
      </gallery>
      • You can also add a short caption to each image if you'd like to explain what the image is about. To do this, add a bar symbol | directly after the filename followed by any text you'd like to add.
      <gallery>
      Image1.jpg|This is the first image's caption
      Image2.jpg|This is the second image's caption
      </gallery>
      • Make sure to save the page so it gets updated with the new gallery.

      Let me know if you have a question on how to do something and I'll do my best to help out :) Thanks again, Thesunstar!

    • thank you so much for explaining that (and so clearly), that really helps! i think i could do it with the gallery tags despite the buggyness, assuming uploading it all goes smoothly and file names don't get unexpectedly shortened like "25 Diamonds.png" becoming "25 .png" lol.

      i'm glad you like the idea and it works for you ☺

      Are they the same as last time? Except maybe the number of rewarded Coins?

      Could you please make note of: what level you are, the Order number you are on, and how many Coins you'll get rewarded with for that Order? i just want to make sure we're getting the same and it isn't slightly different depending on level (or something else).

      Thanks again.

      Best wishes,

    • sorry don't mean to spam you with messages... 

      i hit a possible snag.

      i was going over the screenshots and there are hundreds !

      in theory i'm fine with cropping, renaming them, uploading them all (assuming the uploading isn't too buggy), and listing them for the gallery (i'm giving them all the same name with a number in front so i can copy that and paste it loads and then add the numbers...lol)...

      the snag is: is it even okay for me to upload hundreds of images just for one Event, one Article?

      Best wishes,

      ~-thesunstar

    • Oh, yeah... that's a lot to upload, haha. Honestly, if you don't mind uploading them all, you're more than welcome to. I'm pretty sure there are other wikis out there with loads more images, so it shouldn't be a problem at all in terms of space. You can use Special:MultipleUpload to upload up to 10 files at a time. I can always downsize the number of images in the gallery later if need be. Or, if you'd prefer, you can zip them and send them over to me, and a story summary can be written up later. So it will end up being similar to the previous Event article you worked on. Whichever you prefer to do.

      As for the orders - I just checked a few of them because I am way behind where you are, lol - the spices required for the orders are the same, but the coins I received are different. It's not a big deal, since most players are probably looking at the spice costs more than anything, and the coin difference isn't that huge. The most I saw was 900 coins. The weird thing is, though, it's not always a higher number of coins for my level. At some orders I received less coins. For example, on order #5, it rewards 2 Anise and 2100 coins for level 40. Your order gave you 2 Anise and 3000 coins. On other orders, I did get more coins than what you posted, so perhaps it evens out in the end. I can always make a note at the top of the list of orders that the coin rewards are based on a certain level.

      And apologies for always replying a day late! Thank you so much for keeping track of the orders and taking screenshots of the dialogue :)

    • you honestly don't have to apologize to me, of all people, about replying "late"... ☺ no worries!

      i'll look into the uploading and see how well it goes and thus if it's doable...

      maybe we should break up the Story into parts: thus the Gallery into multiple Galleries... as tapping through a Gallery with hundreds of images isn't very userfriendly  i imagine...

      plus breaking the Story into parts seems to be done often throughout the My Cafe FandomWiki... this will be just a bit different as it's in Galleries... i donno... bad idea?



      i just added a few more orders to my above reply (your reply didn't show up for me yet and i didn't want to spam you with more messages).

      i'm level 35... i'm fairly convinced after reading what you said that the difference in number of Coins rewarded isn't due to level (alone) then. Not sure what (else) it is based on... but it's strange...

      i tried just now to add up the costs of each recipe (so if for example if there are 25 Pancakes with Maple Syrup requested then 25 times the price for Pancakes with Maple Syrup plus the other total recipe costs)... but that didn't work out either...would have made sense as then it would have to do with both level and increased prices boosts caused by Servers/Baristas and/or different recipes being requested... not sure what else to try right now...

      Best wishes,

      Edit: p.s. 

      i tried adding a Storyline Intro Gallery using the tags

       
      
      <gallery>          
      
      001MedievalBallEventStory.png          
      
      002MedievalBallEventStory.png  
      
      003MedievalBallEventStory.png  
      
      004MedievalBallEventStory.png  
      
      005MedievalBallEventStory.png  
      
      006MedievalBallEventStory.png  
      
      007MedievalBallEventStory.png  
      
      008MedievalBallEventStory.png          
      
      </gallery> 
      
      



      IeGalleryScreenie20200703
      is this the only way Galleries display images?

      i can't see how hundreds of images displayed like that even if they are broken up into Storyline sections will look good.... or am i missing something?



      Also is there any way when multiuploading to browse once - select all images - then hit upload? instead of having to go through Browse (then go through the folders, find one correct image then having to start that process all over again) for every single image? If not then multiupload is barely different from single uploading of files :/

      so yeh. i'm stuck again... don't know what to do. i'm sorry...
