Photo Album overview

The Photo Album add-on allows users to view, create, and post photo albums.

If you think users are visiting your community just for the content, think again. They're also interested in connecting with like-minded people. As users reveal their voices and opinions via their profiles and contributions, they begin to form meaningful relationships with one another. Sharing photos adds a visual, personal dimension that both deepens these connections and compels people to engage with your community more regularly. With the Jive Photo Album Plugin, you can give your users the functionality they want while reaping the benefits of richer interactions between your community and your brand.

Photo albums and photos in communities

The Photo Albums adds a new content type, photo album, to Jive communities. Photo albums are treated like other content types and can be created in any type of place or user personal container. Fine-grained permissions can be applied to photo albums on a per-space basis.

Photos are added inside of photo albums. Photos can be bookmarked, commented on, rated, and tagged. Both photo albums and photos are searchable.

The Photo Album add-on also adds Recent Photos and Featured Photos widgets to your instance.

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.
