SITE SUGGESTION: How Interested Are You in a Gallery-Style Viewing Option for Clips?

Hi, a Cookie Connection member recently suggested that the site ought to have an option whereby new clips can quickly be viewed in gallery-style format. (More on this idea in a sec.)


Currently, to view new clips, one must click on "Newest Cookies" on the home page and then on "All Clips"; then the clips reveal in thumbnail format. To see a clip at larger scale with all the associated detail, one must click through on the desired thumbnail.


The suggestion would preserve the old way of viewing, but would add the option to view in a gallery format, meaning that one could scroll through the images in larger size simply by hitting a forward or back arrow. To comment on or like an image, or to see any other detail associated with it, one would again have to click on the image. But the photos would initially show larger in the gallery view.


Please vote in the poll below to indicate whether you would be interested in this feature. If enough members are interested, I'll forward the idea to my site support team for consideration. Interest from Cookie Connection members alone does not mean that they will necessarily implement this change, but if they think it is likely to have broad enough appeal (across all of their member sites), then they could possibly implement at no cost to Cookie Connection. (Otherwise, implementation is likely not possible at this time, as it would require considerable investment by Cookie Connection.)

Yes, it would be a huge improvement
Yes, it would be nice to have but it's not absolutely necessary
Maybe, I could take it or leave it
No, I can think of other site improvements I'd rather see first

UPDATE: You all liked this idea so darn much that I forwarded the idea onto my site developers,, for consideration. As noted above, they will not implement suggestions for free unless a large number of their community "owners" (others who manage sites like this one) express interest in the same feature. A few months ago, they implemented this feature to a large extent, though not completely.


If you click on "Clips" in the main navigation line and then either "Photos" or "Videos" in the bar that runs across the top of the page, you will see an option (in the upper left) to view (the photos or videos) in slide show format. (See the screen shot below for what you should see.) Please note that this option does not appear in the "All", "Audio", or "Files" categories, because those areas obviously include documents and audio clips, which would not view well in a slide show. Also, you cannot click on an image in the slide show and be taken to the detail for the image; you still need to return to the thumbnail viewing mode, pictured below, to do this.


View As Slide Show


HOWEVER, there is a mini gallery-style viewing option in the Top Ten Cookies viewing area on the home page. If you click on any of those images in that slide show, you WILL be taken to the image detail. But, this only applies to the ten images there, not to all the images uploaded to the site.


I hope this new functionality is clear; if not, drop a comment here.


I have also recontacted my site developers to see if they can add the functionality of clicking on a slide show image and being taken to the detail. I will keep you posted of further developments there.
