    I'll chime in that Auto arrange is not working. It is also difficult to manually sort a photo from one page of thumbnails to another.

    Yeah.  Auto arrange just doesn't work - at least not by the two ways that I want to do it, by date taken or by file name.

    For my first 2 galleries I used filename numbering so that it comes in the required order into the gallery after uploading. I had therefore to keep auto sort set on filename with ascending number. After a little while I wanted to change the order of a few photos. Then I realized it had trapped me into complete inability to rearrange anything. When I set Auto Sort to None, my photos where badly reshuffled and I had to painstakingly rearrange almost all one by one. When I left Auto Sort to Filename, any local rearranging I did after checking 'arrange mode' was lost as soon as I browsed through gallery pages, without getting any warning I would loose my time.

     Really,  rearranging photos is a poor (or nut-) case on SmugMug. They must fix this urgently. I suggest implementing an extra option for Auto Sort : None But Keep Image Order As Is Now. That should not be very difficult to do for the programmers.

      That is an excellent idea. Another option (which would work well for me) is to sort them by date and time. I takes lots of "trip" pictures and I always organize them that way.

      I agree 100%.

      This is the issue I came across.

    Select the Style for a gallery as All Thumbs, then click the "arrange" box at the top left of the thumbnails.  Then you should be able to drag images into the order you want.  Works for me.

    The sorting feature is terrible. It basically doesn't work. Why isn't there a select all? Why is the only option "reverse" why doesn't it pay attention to the numbers in the file names. The file name sort is either broken or very convoluted in the way it sorts. This is EXTREMELY frustrating. Also, I arranged all the photos manually. Then I couldn't find the save button and lost all my work. This thing is really bad
