Choosing the main photo and for the iphone--options missing

Hi Daniel,

When I click on a photo, there is only the "delete" option under it; I do not see "use as main image", or the iphone check box, as shown in the video. I need to replace many of my main photos, as they are cropped.

Moreover, it simply says "uploaded by.." but not the name of the author. The "edit" option is also missing!

Thanks,
Nita

Hi Linda,

Please log out and back in, and then try again. It should be set for you now.

Best,
Daniel

Hi Daniel:

I am having the same problem. I posted my photos and clicked on "use as main page" but I do not see an option for the "use for iphone" box as shown in the video tutorial.

Thanks,

Linda

Hi,

Yes, in general, you can use the same photo as main photo and for iPhone. However, the main photo is also used as the header photo for the website, where it may be cropped. In some cases, this means that you may want to upload an image that is pre-cropped to fit the header photo. If you do that, it may be better to use another photo as iPhone photo (e.g. upload the same photo, but the original, un-cropped version).

> Since there is no "save" button, I presume it's enough to simply check the iphone box.

Yes, that is enough.

> Also, am not sure what the function of "lock" (under the photo) is. Is it to "lock" the article so it can't be edited, and does it also include the photos?

You see the "Lock" on the entry page (not the photo page). As you say, it will lock the entry so that others cannot edit it. It does NOT include photos.

Best,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Thanks very much for adding all the options. Just tried it out--worked perfectly!

Sorry for the endless queries! but do you suggest using the main photo for the iphone too, or choose another one? Since there is no "save" button, I presume it's enough to simply check the iphone box.

Also, am not sure what the function of "lock" (under the photo) is. Is it to "lock" the article so it can't be edited, and does it also include the photos?

Thanks again!
Regards,
Nita

Hi Nita,

You should now see these options. Please open the photo pages again.

It is normal that it says "Uploaded by...". It will only state the author if the photo is not by you (e.g. for Creative Common photos), when you have added an attribution to the photo while uploading. Note: Please leave the attribution blank for your own photos.

Best,
Daniel
