The admin controlpanel allows you to edit titles, descriptions, create textpages, change sorting, rename, delete, hide, move, copy and set preview images. Moreover, you can change- and edit your themes, manage the main settings and change- or edit the languages.

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

Logout – logs user out of admin control panel

  1. how do i set the default image (when i view the site, the first image that will appear)?

  2. The first image is related to your STARTPATH folder, which is set under admin -> settings. Navigate to your start folder, and from there set it to “use as [filemod]“. You can now choose any filemod as outlined here:
    http://imagevuex.com/documentation/filemod/

    You will need at least 1 image in this folder to use any of the filemods of course.

  3. I can show only the address of my site?

  4. Hi,

    I just upgraded from Imagevue X1 (I believe) to your very latest version.

    When trying to go to my admin page it doesn’t work my address.

    My old admin addres used to be http://nachoromero.net/~nachorom/imagevue

    Do I get a new one with the newer version?

    Best regards and thanks for your help,
