On the top right side of the admin menu, you may find warnings related to your gallery. These warnings notify about modules that seem to be missing from your server, or other possible problems. Missing modules can be fatal to some actions, while sometimes they only mean you can’t do a certain actions. If this area is empty, you should not have any problems. Below the warning area, you will find a few minor buttons:
Flash – link to your current Flash Imagevue X2 gallery

The manage section is where you manage your files and folders. Initially, when clicking a the “Manage” tab, you will see the root folders within your content folder. Clicking a folder with files inside, will display a list of thumbnails representing files in that folder. Clicking a thumbnail will take you to the manage page for your selected file.
To the right of the screen, there are several panels with controls that allow you to edit the content you are currently viewing. When you are in a folder, you will have options to edit the folder. If you are viewing an image, you will have options to edit the image.
The settings section allows you to control all global settings for the Flash gallery, html gallery and admin. For example, you choose the language, how thumbnails are created, and all interactive layout options in the gallery. The only settings you don’t find here, are the ones that are stored in the specific themes, like colors and fonts.
The themes section allows you to choose a theme to use with your gallery, or edit a theme. A theme consists of a group of settings related to the color and style of your gallery. A theme also includes a stylesheet.css file to define the formatting of all the text in the gallery.
The user section allows you to change the password for your admin. Additionally, it allows you to create additional admin users to manage the gallery. You can create ‘restricted users’ that only have access to specific folders and/or subfolders.
The languages page, allows you to view all the different language templates for the Gallery. You can also edit any of the languages or create a new one.
The diagnostics page creates an overview of the file- and folder permissions in your gallery, and also warns about any missing modules either in PHP or Apache. You do not need to use this section, but it will help diagnose possible errors in your gallery.
