The permanent gallery feature of AutoGallery Pro will allow you to place your own galleries, or sponsor galleries, in rotation through your TGP pages. You can set
the galleries to start and expire on specific dates and have them appear randomly mixed in with your normal galleries. Permanent galleries can be added, updated,
and deleted at any time. Each time your TGP pages are built, the permanent galleries will rotate.
Galleries can also be added with the permanent gallery import feature
To add a permanent gallery locate and click on the Add Galleries link in the Permanent Galleries section of the control panel menu. AutoGallery Pro will load a page
where you will be able to enter all of the data for the permanent gallery. Each of the form fields is described below.
