Setting up Recent Photos widget

The Recent Photos widget lists recently added photos or photo albums.

Important: We do not recommend that you use widgets and widgetized Overview pages in your community. For more information, see Understanding pages in places in the Jive 9.x Community Manager Help.

The widget can display either albums or photos. In the album view mode, the cover photo is shown along with the creator, name, and number of photos for each photo album. In the photo view mode, the date of creation, author, and name of the album are shown for each photo.
