Creating a Friendly Link and Gallery ID for Client Access

Please note: the ability to create Friendly URLs is only available for Starter, Pro and Advanced subscribers. The ability to use the Client Access page is only available to Pro and Advanced subscribers. 

For Zenfolio users that signed up after May 10 2018, please click here for updated instructions using the new Photos Page in the Dashboard.

Friendly links are a way to make links to a gallery, group or collection easier for visitors to remember by using a descriptive word at the end of the link. The link can include only characters (A through Z) and numbers (0 through 9). This descriptive word may also be used as a Gallery ID that clients can enter into the Client Access Page to be sent directly to a gallery.
  1. In the Dashboard, select the gallery you would like to edit in the Organizer or the Main Area. Related information will be loaded in the Toolbox.
  2. Under the Toolbox click on Sharing & Client Access. A pop-up panel will appear.
  3. Enter a descriptive word or code in the Gallery ID field. The link can include only characters (A through Z),  dashes (-), and numbers (0 through 9). 
    Note - the end of the web address/URL changes to show the Gallery ID
  4. Click Save to apply. Your friendly link and client Gallery ID will be updated immediately.

Note: Creating friendly links will not break the original link generated for that gallery. However, older friendly links and client Gallery ID's will not be stored.
