Improving Mindat.orgHow do I create a photo gallery under my profile?

19th Oct 2019 22:31 UTCDerek Lowe


I want to create a photo gallery of the minerals I have found so far, but the site doesn't seem to let me want to do it.  Does this feature work on Mindat?  If it does, how do I do it?

It says that have no photos in my gallery but when I try to upload a photo, it says that it is a duplicate of one that is already there (and it can show it to me).  I didn't upload this photo to my gallery but I DID upload it in a discussion.

Any help would be appreciated.

Derek, if you change the filter options to incomplete uploads there are 3 pages of your photos, is the one you are trying to upload in there?

Yes, thanks - there are there.  It says they are all awaiting approval - some have been uploaded more than a few weeks ago, so how do I get them approved to show up in my galleries?

I can only see them when I choose the option "incomplete uploads".
You had selected the wrong category ("Other photo") for most of them.

Pointless blurry photos such as the one above usually o get deleted.

The incomplete uploads are those photos that have been uploaded to the "Discussion" pages. They can be edited so that they can be included in the main portion of the site, but by default go to the "other" category.

Thanks David - that makes more sense.  To date, the only photos I have been able to successfully upload are to the discussion pages.  I think I managed to get a few of those included on my personal page as well now.
