    Hi Kathy,
    I started a Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve gallery but there isn’t an Album for that yet. How do I create a new album? Thanks!

      Hi Lisa,

      I fixed your gallery for you, you didn’t actually have to link it to a park, but that does remind me to create a section for Tallgrass. Thanks for the head’s up. Love the flow of your work too, I hope you post more!

      Kathy

      Hi Doug,
      Thanks for wanting to share your work on the site, we are looking forward to seeing it. The instructions might be a bit ambiguous, when I say mouse over the “Artist in Residence” in the top left to see your dashboard, I am referring to the top left of the web page, not the image in the instructions. That will cause your dashboard to drop down and you can go from there. Let me know if you have any other problems. I will make it more clear in the instructions, thanks for your input.

        Thanks. I got some of this but have to tell you that the site is very hard to use: the upload gallery portion. I did manage to upload 4 images of my work, but now cannot find them anywhere and could not figure out how to add them to the AIR galleries.

        WordPress template is not easy to use for the tech novices.

          Hi Doug,
          Looks like you might have skipped step 4, but no worries, I moved it for you. Your gallery should show up now. I like your work a lot! I know WordPress is not easy, it was quite a challenging first project for me to set up this site. I am taking a class soon, however, in Advanced WordPress with the goal of making this site more user friendly. So keep checking back for improvements!

            HI Kathy: got it. ignore me. I am just a right brained artist. I’m a slow learner when it comes to tech stuff, but a pretty good painter.:) thanks so much for your patience and support.

    Please let me know if you upload a gallery and it’s not showing up. Thanks for your patience while I fine tune!
