    Q: Can I add an additional availability code?
    Can I add an additional availability code?

    A: Unfortunately, no. The existing availability codes are used throughout the system and adding a new one will result in unpredictable things breaking on your site and throughout the FASO network and could result in your art not showing up in places where you would want it to.

    Q: Can I control the order my works are displayed?
    Can I control the order my works are displayed?

    A: You can control the order your works are displayed either by:

    1. An order you manually define.
    2: alphabetically by title
    3. the order in which you add the pieces, with the most recent first.

    To select one, enter your control panel and click on “My Artwork Portfolio”.

    Click on the link to “Edit the works display”.

    This will take you to a window with three drop down menu options. Leave "Default Portfolio Page" set to "default" (unless you have Collections set up). Choose the setting for the Default Works Display order to either Display Sequence Number, Alphabetical or Most Recent First.

    Hit Save Changes.

    If you select Display Sequence Number you will then need to click the link that says "Reorder Your Artworks" in "My Artwork Portfolio" and drag-and-drop your artworks into the order that you want them.

    Once you save your changes you should see your portfolio in the new order.

    ------------

    If you have Collections set up, it's a tad different.

    Once you switch the "Default Works Display Order" to "Display Sequence Number" then you click "Add/Edit Collections" from your artwork portfolio.

    Then click "reorder artworks" next to the collection you want to reorder and you will be able to drag-and-drop the works in that collection.

    Q: RSS Feed Link
    What is the Feed link in my works portfolio?

    A: If you don't know what an RSS feed is, don't worry too much, people who use RSS will know what it is. Let's just say they are like channels that visitors can subscribe to and that they are about to explode into common usage. We have integrated an RSS Feed into the Blog mentioned above. For those of you who don't want to blog (and even for those who do), we have added a built-in RSS Feed to every single FASO account. If you go to your "Works" page on your web site, you will notice a little orange icon with the word "Feed" next to it. (It is not visible if you've chosen to hide the artworks subheader) This allows site visitors who use RSS to with a few clicks "subscribe" to your works portfolio. Why would someone do that? Because it will allow the visitor to monitor when you post new artwork without having to manually check your site every day. Communicate with your clients and friends and encourage them to subscribe to your RSS feed (and be sure to post new artwork often).

    If you want to hide the subheaders (ie the line that reads 'All • Originals • Limited Editions • Open Editions • Feed') you can do so by following these instructions:

    1. Login to your control panel.

    2. Click on MY ARTWORK PORTFOLIO

    3. Click on 'Edit the works display'

    4. Next to 'Hide Subheader in Portfolio' click 'Yes'

    5. Click Save Changes

    Q: Can I Make the Thumbnail Zoom Skip Right to the Largest View?
    If possible I`d like the thumbnail zoom feature on my site to be reconfigured so that one click takes viewer to largest view of a painting instead of having to first go to an intermediate image size?

    A: 1. Log in to your control panel

    2. Click on MY ARTWORK PORTFOLIO

    3. Click on Edit The Works Display

    4. Change Default Works Zoom Level from Default to Large

    5. Click Save Changes

    NOTE: This feature will cause problems in the Autumn templates. Leave Autumn templates set to Default.

    Q: Can I Hide Images From the Public?
    Can I Hide Images From the Public?

    A: When you upload images used in the WORKS category, you can set the status to "Archive", which will make them not appear on your main portfolio page. Those works ARE still online though and people may find them in various ways.

    At this time there is no way to completely "Hide" an artwork after it has been entered in your control panel. The only way to ensure that is to not add an artwork until you are ready for the public to see it.

    You can also move works to your "images other than artwork section" to keep them out of your artwork portfolio until you are ready to show them.

    Q: Why do I have little red dots on my thumbnails?
    Why do I have little red dots on my thumbnails?

    A: The little red dots appear on thumbnails of images that have been marked with an availability of 'Sold.'

    You can turn them off by choosing 'YES' for 'Hide Red Dots in Portfolio' in your Works Display settings (Artwork icon in upper row, then click on 'Edit the works display').

    You also have the option of choosing to hide or show the word 'SOLD' in the thumbnail view by selecting 'YES' or 'NO' in the 'Hide Sold Tags In Portfolio' option.

    Some templates ONLY show the red dots to indicate that a piece is sold.

    FYI - Artwork always has the availability status on detail pages; everything in this discussion pertains only to thumbnail portfolio pages.

    ==========================

    Red dots will show on larger views of images (detail view and zoom view) only for clients who have attached their Paypal account to their website. The red dot is in place of the Buy Now button.

    Q: Can I show my visitors images larger than the current ZOOM size?
    I would like my artwork images to be displayed larger in the ZOOM view. Is this possible? How?

    A: The current ZOOM view image size is set at 550 pixels (in the largest dimension).

    We can do a no-charge custom change for you to make your zoom images larger.

    1. Using a Generation 3 template, the largest size we can zoom to is 700 pixels. Anything larger and the image will exceed the width of your website.

    NOTE: Cosmic Chameleon and Morphic MapleLicious will allow for up to 770 pixels.

    2. For Generation 2 templates it is possible to ZOOM to either:
    Extra Large - 1024 pixels
    Extra Extra Large - 2000 pixels
    or any size you want (smaller than 2000px).

    You will need to make sure that you have uploaded images that are large enough for your 'larger zoom' request.
