We suggest developing a way to sort photos, and then be able select and work with one photo (eg rename, delete, retag).

We have over 100 photos, and will add more. We will use some photos on many occasions for different reasons, different pages. It is time consuming to locate a photo on one of 11 pages, and then work on it (eg retag), and then look for a similar photo that might not be tagged the same way.

In other words, photo management, so you can see multiple photos on a screen at once, and click on one.
Thanks for considering. Linda

    Hi Linda:

    I'll share your thoughts. Perhaps we can add a way to view more photos per page. It's not something likely to happen in the short term but we can consider it for a future upgrade.

    Thanks!

    Another idea: how can I contact farmers or find websites on Small Farm Central for farms that work with animals? I’m attaching a link to another Devon farm, up north. As you can see, he has different information to share on the web and different needs than CSAs or vegetable/crop farmers. Perhaps a few of us on Small Farm Central can learn more about websites from each other, or at least view each other’s pages to learn what is possible in this software.

     

    For example, we need to be able to easily show what animals we have, as Dave has done for Hidden Vue Farm. http://hiddenvuefarm.com/live_animals.html

    Lakota Red Devon is another model.

    I’m sure I can figure out how to do a lot of this myself, but there may be tools or methods already in use. Or maybe some of these are things I can’t do (tabs or buttons as links).

     

    Just brainstorming. Thanks again. Linda

    Hi Linda:

    I know we discussed this already a bit, about how we have some tools that allow our CSA customers to connect, such as our CSA FArmer Discussion Group. We have considered some other groups but due to the variety of farms that we deal with, it has sometimes been hard to consider what the focus would be.

    Simon did suggest that you might want to check out a marketing course he will be presenting starting mid-february. It has a bit of a focus on farmers market farmers, but really goes through the whole marketing process. Here's the link to find out more/sign up: http://pages.smallfarmcentral.com/course/

    As for the samples you shared, there isn't an easy way to do the tabs like on the first page, but you could create a list of hyperlinks on a farmer-defined page. These links could then link to pages you create using the "Showcase" tool. The showcase tool provides a table structure that gives you room for a photo for each item and a description box. That might be what you are looking for.

    Thanks, I signed up. And I understand now how to build something that functions basically the way I want.

    I promise I won’t bug you anymore for a while, except to say that there are a large number of farms out there like us, who don’t deal with the public (eg farmer’s markets, or retail). They won’t see Twitter or Facebook. They have websites like Small Farm Central’s templates, BUT they are hiring design firms to set it up, and they could do a lot of this themselves. We have people asking us what service we use. Check out http://www.brookviewbeef.com/ , a site like ours but built by “ <http://www.webmediainteractive.com> Louisville Website Design by Webmedia Interactive” (yes, Brookview markets to retail stores, but they also have their own store, they are 100+ years old, and they reach out to restaurants, not farmer’s markets).

    I rest my case : )

    Take care, Linda
