You can now re-order images on listing

by James

Today (Monday 8th Oct 2012) we’re releasing the work that allows you to re-order your images on the listing page. This goes live with the new, improved categories.

Previously the images on the listing page had to be uploaded in the correct order, with the main image loaded first. Many people asked to be able to re-order them on the listing page itself as they were unsure which one was best suited for the main image (and subsequent images) until they had seen them.

This is the section on the listing page where you can re-order images:

And here is what you’ll see when you add images:

As you hover over an image you’ll be able to grab and move the image to a different place and thus change the order. The main image, as indicated, is always the one on the left.

We’re really pleased to be able to offer this incremental improvement to the service in advance of the big Christmas rush. Hope it helps with listing! Do let us know what you think of it.

A note on Internet Explorer.

Microsoft Internet Explorer doesn’t allow us to do the same fancy javascript work that other browsers (such as Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari) do. So, whilst people using IE 9 will have a comparable experience to those using Firefox, Chrome and Safari, users of IE 8 and IE 7 will only be able to use the pre-existing image upload service and will not be able to re-order their images on the listings page. We suggest users of IE 8 and IE 7 upgrade to IE9 or change to a different browser.

Oo, fab. I’d been procrastinating on whether I could be bothered to update images I wasn’t happy with. That’s soooooo much easier. Thank you!

Thats great !
It will make such a difference to be able to actually see the uploaded pictures on the listing page, without having to wait for the final stages.

Oh thank goodness we have that facility back. It has been a right pain in the proverbial since you took it away from us last year.

would also be useful not to have to put the additional coding on when loading images onto the community forums. On Etsy you just copy your image title and this then posts your image to any forum. I know a lot of new members have difficulty uploading images to the forums, so I am sure this would help exitsting and new members

LOL not just newbies!

I have never found the need to change my photos as i load them up in order anyway but i can see how it would be helpful to people who wish to ‘update’ their photo’s. I don’t like the load one photo at a time though as t takes even longer to list anything.

Excellent! Now I’m off to fiddle around with my images>

Ah, I’m so, so pleased this is back as I’ve really missed it. It was always so handy, and great to be able to change your mind and alter the order of photos. Many thanks, Folksy, for putting this back in!
