Sentry Stack and Gallery 3


(E) #1

I have set up a page on a clients site using Sentry Stack and Gallery 3.

It allows the client to load up images easily … which then look great in a gallery and lightbox
(Thank you Jannas at Instacks!)

My question is: Where are these images stored? (and description text)

I am concerned that republishing the site after various page updates I’m going to overwrite all her work and loose it.
What can I do to avoid this!?
THANKS

I guess the images, descriptions, and page texts are stored inside some files on the server.

Check with a ftp app the folder on the server.

hi, yes I’m looking. I have never used sentry before (or gallery 3) and have now added pages and files etc to the site and need to republish. Don’t dare do it!

Hi,
Sounds great!
May I ask what settings do you used for that?

TIA

Hi Peppermint

Here are settings:
test page is here

I have a 1 column stack
Inside that a Gallery 3
I have selected Grid Justified
Lightbox:LightGallery

Then I have Sentry Control center stack
Sentry Edit stack (so client can login)
Sentry login stack

Then added this in a plain text stack

Had just a look at your site, must say looking good. Great work :+1:

Thank you. Very kind thing to say!

Actually I have now updated it. I have used Doobox Ice stack to create some hover image links on the home page.
I was going to add the link to the stack but it does not seem to be in the doobox store anymore.

Anyway the good news is that the sentry/gallery 3 page is not affected.

The images imported using Sentry can be found on the server /rw_common/plugins/stacks/SentryEdit/media/IMG_0548.JPG
