How do I control the order of images in a web site

Controlling the order of images in the thumbnail pages
If you generate a website from a named collection the order the images will appear in the thumbnail page is the order they appear in the collection, if you generate it from the full database the order will be that of the database. The order of images in a named collection can be easily manipulated, however the order of images in the database is fixed by the image index. So if you are creating the website from the full database the trick is to create a named collection that contains the entire database. This is easily done:

  1. Create a new empty Named Collection with an appropriate name.
  2. In the database view mode select no categories and invert the selection, this will display all images in the database.
  3. Select Edit - Select All and all images are selected
  4. Select Collections - Add Images to Active Collection and all images in the database will be added to the collection.
  5. View the collection and move the images around to whatever order is desired.
