NOTE: The gallery component that's embedded in the Search and Homepage templates has a bug where you have to configure it, add an item, don't drop anything in, click the checkmark to say done and then reopen it and add the first image, and any others. There's something that doesn't initialize properly when the component is embedded in a page template.

The Gallery component allows users to feature images for a photo gallery or in a carousel on their pages. It can feature images, titles, captions and linked text. 

On the page, click and drag the Gallery component to the location where you want it to appear. 

Properties window

After placing the component on the page, open its properties by clicking on the configure (wrench) icon. 

Two tabs appear in the properties window: Gallery Type and Items.
