What are hierarchy and folders?

Updated: 10/30/2014

Your SmugMug website is composed of pages, which you can organize up to seven layers deep:

SITE > Folder > Folder > Folder > Folder > Folder > Gallery (or Page).

Here's what that would look like:
 

You can see each layer nested inside the one above, on the tree view on the left in the organizer. This same hierarchy is reflected in the breadcrumb, shown at the top of the page. 
  • We've named the layers Folders.
  • The end-point pages are named Galleries, which hold images, or Pages, which are blank slates to which any page element(s) may be added.
  • You can create Folders, Galleries, and Pages from the Organizer
  • Each Folder level has a limit of 5001 folders/galleries or pages within it.
  • You can drag and drop in the Organizer, using the left-side navigation tree, to arrange Folders, Galleries, and Pages within your site. You can also arrange photos within galleries by highlighting them and dragging them within the center window.
