    How do I add a photo where there's not one in the template?

    I'm in the process of moving my website from Website Builder to Go Central.  

     

    One of our pages is an about us page - picture, name, short bio, email address. (See http://www.claritytransitions.net/about-us.html for what I want to do.)  I can get all the content into a section (using a "content" section), but I don't see how to add the head shots.  The only directions I can find are on replacing existing photos or adding a cover photo.  

     

    In Go Central, am I limited to the template?  Or can I place things where ever I want them as in Website Builder? 

     

    Thanks for any insight.

    @Julia-CT

     

    If you don't want to use any of the predesignated widgets you can try the HTML widget which allows to to use HTML to do whatever you like.

     

    For what you describe you could use table code to have the photo in the left cell and the description in the right.   It would look something like this:

     

    <table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center" border="0">
    <tr><td>Photo here via <img src="url to image here" width="XX" height="XX"></td><td>Bio here</td></tr>
    <tr><td>Photo here</td><td>Bio here</td></tr>
    <tr><td>Photo here</td><td>Bio here</td></tr>
    <tr><td>Photo here</td><td>Bio here</td></tr>
    <tr><td>Photo here</td><td>Bio here</td></tr>
    <tr><td>Photo here</td><td>Bio here</td></tr>
    </table>

    If I am misunderstanding or if you still have questions, let me know!

    I have the same question.  I have photos on my desktop that I want to add to the photo gallery.  In plain language, how do I do it?  I can't see anything on the page that says download photos.  Where do I look for it?  Calling customer service is not helpful.  Thanks.

    With regard to your reply to @Julia-CT, after copying the code, where do I paste it to?

     

    Thank you!

    Re: How do I add a photo where there's not one in the template?

    I am having the same issue. I'm writing in my blog and the template allows for one photo at the top but I want to add additional photos within the text. I do not want to write in HTML. Is there no way to insert photos in random spots within the content?

    Re: How do I add a photo where there's not one in the template?

    I have the exact same question but didn't see anyone reply to your question. If you received an answer, please let me know how to add multiple pictures in a template. Thanks!

    Anyone have a realistic answer for this:  Adding a photo like we were able to do in Website Builder?  If the new version lacks this, someone needs to add it in.  Very imprt.

    In GoCentral, you choose from existing layouts for each section. There are some photo layouts for "About" as well as "Content" or "Photo Gallery" that might work. We don't support custom additions of an image, but we are looking at ways to offer more flexibility in the current layouts we have. We are also adding more layouts. As a workaround, sometimes you can get the look you want by adding a section multiple times to the page. Thanks, Christine

    @RANCHWOMAN  You can upload your own images to use in the gallery. Click on the "+" tile in the gallery to launch the Image Library - there you can add stock or upload your own images. We also bring over images you may have had on v7 so that you don't have to reupload them. Thanks,

    I answered this below, but wanted to call out that if you had images on v7, we bring them over to GoCentral automatically. You just add them to your site - you do need to select a layout for that section.  Thanks, Christine

    Re: How do I add a photo where there's not one in the template?

    Not being able to simply add photos to your site is handicapping and unwanted. For this (and other reasons) I have left godaddy. At least Wordpress allows you to add photos and to incorporate google adsense without complication.

    adding photos on Go Central is the WORST I have ever seen on the Internet. How do I add my own photos before I just contact the Attorney Generals Office?

    Re: How do I add a photo where there's not one in the template?

    I finally got it figured out. It is easier than Thought! I am much happier with GoDaddy Go Central now. On Mac it seems like if you put your photos you want in a separate folder from Photos....then it goes pretty smooth.mthey are able to handle high res photos quite well!

    I find it unacceptable that GoDaddy is making me convert to a system that forces me to use certain layouts, and makes it difficult (maybe impossible?) to put photos on the page where I want them to be.

     

    I would like to upload all the photos for my site and have them organized by what page they are on. This will make it a little easier for me to convert, since I need to create all the pages - I can't just copy them from my current site.

    Re: How do I add a photo where there's not one in the template?

    FOSWDC.  I found out GoDaddy Go Central is easier to use than I thought. My site is up and running now  I have found the traffic though, potential customers is extremely low! That is actually really troubling!

    When will you stop looking and start doing something about more flexible layouts for photos? It seems to me that there are a LOT of people who want this.

    I don't understand how you figured out how to add a photo where there's not one in the template (layout). Can you explain? I have a PC, not a mac. Does webbuilder work differently on a mac? How do you put photos in a separate folder? How does that get them inserted into a page/section layout?

    Hi in the "Content" section there are 5 different layouts that include text + imagery. Or you could check out the layouts under "Photo Gallery" or "About" sections.

    Hi - we have photo + text layouts in multiple sections - Content, Photo Gallery, About - for instance. The slide show layouts can also be made full-width.

     

    Is there a type of layout you would like to see supported? We are working on additional layouts and can take a look at any suggestions.

    Re: How do I add a photo where there's not one in the template?

    How about a content page like the one that has one picture in the upper right corner and text on the rest of the page. Make one that has multiple pictures in the column under the one picture at the top. And one that has title and text and a few picture options (e.g.1 large one, or 2 smaller ones) after the text, with space for captions under the pictures. Also one that has title, then one large picture, then text.

    Hi @FOSWDC  Here are some layouts we already have that may help with your requests - and we will have additional layouts soon.

    It would also be nice to be able to put a title on the photo gallery section.

    I also have some photo collections in pdf files. On my old (current) site, someone can click on the link to the file and see the pictures. I can't link to a pdf in a text link now, so I have to add a "files" section and people have to take an extra step to click on the link to download the pdf file to see the pictures. I don't see why we can't link directly to a pdf file like we can link to other pages/sections.
