Welcome to a whole new world of productivity and brand consistency using Master Galleries.
Cincopa Master Gallery – Overview
The best way of explaining it is to use the concept of master and slave from the IT world. let’s see what you can do with the master gallery.
By linking a gallery to a Master Gallery, It will take the template and customization settings of the Master. Any changes made to the Master will be magically reflected on the Linked Gallery.
So unlike a preset, You don’t have to re-apply it to countless galleries when you want to change a video player’s color, add a logo to an image gallery or change the timing settings of a slideshow or even completely changing the type of template you want to use throughout your website.
Setting a gallery/player as a Master Template
Setting an existing gallery as a master template is done by navigating to galleries, expanding the gallery options and setting it as a master.
Caution: A master gallery cannot be deleted or “unmastered”, this can only be done by the Cincopa support team.
