Can I remove the pictures on the side?

+6 votes

I am making a Space page for the High Church in Glasgow Scotland, and I have pictures that are inline of the text.  All groovy.

But the pics on the right that have been uploaded are

A. The same pics, and

B. Take up a ton of room.  

When I do the edit area and look at the preview, it looked great, but once back on the main page it went all funky and I had to edit/save/look/edit/repeat.

Is there anyway to make the photos on the right not show at all on a page?

Thank you!!

You have a typo in the first sentence (it's should be its) -- and the images would be much more accessibility-friendly if you added the label parameter to the image code and described the image, so those using screen readers can "see" the images and not just know they are there.  (I know, I know, I'm a bore on the subject of alt text.)

Chuck, the only way is to not have them attached to the page.  I agree with you about not liking to see them marching down the right side, with no control of the order, and I always display them in the biography itself, in a position that is relevant to what the image depicts.

To keep them off the right side of the page, you can create a free space page to store them.  Upload your images to that page, then you can link to them from any profile you want, on YOUR terms of where you want to place them and what size you want to display them at.

For an example, see my husband's grandmother's profile.  Its privacy is open, so you can look at the edit page to see what I did and how I did it.  Note that there is one image that is attached to the profile - that is the one I wanted to use as the "thumbnail" - you can only use an image attached to the profile for that purpose.

OMG You are a genius!!

Thank you so much Gaile
I can see the pictures gone on your profile you linked. It still uses the space to the right, but that looks so much better.

 Thank you!!
Agreed with you Gaile, and I have complained about it years ago, and multiple times since, and nothing has changed. Even when there are no photos, the whitespace gutter still takes up way too much space
