Photos - How do I?

Travel Forums System Talk Photos - How do I?

When I go to my profile and click on "current public profile page", there are four photos showing. I would like to change two of them. (Three of them are of the same thing). Is there a way to do this? I can't seem to find a way of moving the photos around, although I have tried clicking on the little black pointers like this ^ but nothing seems to happen.
Any advice greatly appreciated.

That block of photos always takes the "most recent" four photos, based first on the date you've assigned to the photo, and then (for the exact same dates) on the order in which you've uploaded them.

I guess you could fool the system by giving the four photos you'd like to show there a fake date of 31 December 2010, but basically the basic concept of the profile page isn't something which is designed to give you control over how it looks, but just a dynamically updated view on all your activity on the site for other people to look at. Might be worth evaluating that at some point - see if enough people have the desire to really tweak the look of that page and exactly what information is being shown, but I personally don't think that'll be the case.

Thanks for the explanation Sander. I thought I had uploaded more recent photos, but obviously not (gettin' forgetful in me old age). I'll upload some more - that should fix the problem. Might have to fiddle with the date though.

If you want to remove the photos, one way of doing it is also to uncheck the box "Show in Gallery", on the Edit Photo page (or you can edit multiple photos by ticking the check boxes in front of multiple photos on before hitting the Edit button at the top of the page).

That's pretty neat Sam. I didn't want to actually remove the photos, just re-arrange them so three sunsets weren't showing up on my profile page. I upoaded two other photos but made sure the dates shown were later than actually taken.
