The Spotlightr Gallery Module is a fantastic option if you wish to create a simple and cleanly designed page that holds multiple videos intended for a particular audience. Gallery pages can be hosted on spotlightr.com or even embedded into your own site as an iframe.
These pages can be set to have public access or can be locked down and opened via access codes generated within the Gallery page settings.
If you prefer video, here is an overview video of our Gallery Module. Keep in mind some updates to the Galleries have been made since this video was recorded:
Gallery pages can be populated by individual Sections, with each Section holding one or more videos. Instead of adding videos, you can also choose to enter any content you wish with a WYSIWYG HTML editor.
Sections can be organized however you wish. For example, if you are creating Tutorials for your software then each Section could represent a main feature of your software. Or if you are creating a Gallery page to send to students each Section could represent a week's worth of video lessons.
To get started, click the Gallery Menu option on the left-side menu of your Dashboard:
and then click the New Gallery button. Name your Gallery and then click Create:
To start adding videos or content to a Section, simply click on it. Then you will see a dropdown where you can select Videos or the HTML editor:
I'll keep the Section Type as Videos and name the Section. Then click the checkmark to save the name:
Then choose the videos you want be clicking to Search for a video, choose your video and then click on Add Video.
Then select each video you want for that Section to complete it
Repeat those steps to create additional Sections. There is no limit to the amount of sections you can create or the number of videos in each Section.
Various use cases may require you to add content in-between sections or under a video list. For example, you may want to show a row a videos and a google form to complete underneath them. To accomplish this you may switch the section type from videos to HTML.
Here I added a section section called "Exercise Review" using the editor underneath the first section of videos which have 3 videos:
Here is where you can rename your Gallery page and write a description of your Gallery. The description will show at the top of the Gallery page. You can also add a logo/image to your Gallery by adding the URL of it's location or uploading it:
**Important note** When you add an image for Gallery Logo, it will replace your Gallery Name/Title in the Gallery.
At the bottom you can access 3 tabs: Access, Appearance, and Playback
Access: Here you can configure the Gallery Access.
Open indicates that it does not require any special access codes or purchase. Anyone with the link to the Gallery may open it. But they must have the link as your Gallery can't be browsed publicly from anywhere on spotlightr.com
The next option is to configure Access Codes. Here you can configure different codes that can be used to open the Gallery page. Without a code, the page cannot be accessed at all.
Finally we have Paid Access which allows you to charge for access to your Gallery by integrating your Stripe account with Spotlightr.
Appearance: Here you configure the look and design of the Gallery page.
If you want to add a trailer video it will show at the top of your Gallery page with the the title and description. It will always show regardless of the Access Settings.
The next option is for a background image or video. The image can be added via a link or upload. We've also added a variety of background images you can use by clicking on the Image Templates icon:
If using a video, the video must be added by choosing a video from your Spotlightr account or by adding a link to the video. You cannot upload a video.
The Gallery Layout options featured the Carousel layout and the Grid layout. The Carousel will show one line of videos that will scroll left and right. The Grid will show all videos on screen in a grid without the need to scroll left or right.
Playback: Here you configure a few more playback options
