OVERVIEW

The photo upload system on this site is based on the registration number of the vehicle. New galleries are created using the vehicle registration number, and photos can be bulk uploaded in one go from your computer.

2. Managing Galleries

It is not anticipated you will need to manage galleries often, but once a car is sold and no longer required on the site, this is a good place to delete the gallery and remove the images to save space

Deleting a Gallery

  1. From the left hand menu, click on “Gallery” – marked “1” – to open the menu options, then click “Manage Galleries” in that menu (or click here).

    help-photo-manage-gallery-01

  2. From the Gallery menu, check the box next to the Gallery / Galleries you want to delete – marked “1”, set the “bulk actions” box to “delete” – marked “2”, click apply – marked “3”, and you’ll see the confirmation message once deleted – marked “4”

Opening a Gallery
