Looking for a replacement for Shutterfly sites. I can live without the print and product sales, but need to have the volunteer and sign ups features and the ability to have every class in the school have their own areas as well as the common area for all families.

Is there a way to set a block to not show a photo with the item? In the case of events, maybe one where the date is shown in the list?

Our site will have group memberships shifting every fall (and part of the name will be updated too occasionally). This is replacing a system where past year's groups kept their site live even after people stopped using it, mostly for the photos and class list. Most of the other content isn't timeless, and what would be would be protected by the structure of the the UNA site. I'm tempted to purge data, but some might lobby for a way to retain it. Does this exist now?

Is it possible to set a default cover page image and icon that is unique to a category (but can be overridden)? Especially on events, the creator may not always have an image available, but the event category could easily have a default image set for it so the item doesn't look so generic in the lists. Groups, channels, and organizations could have one too, but those are longer lasting items and a creator would have time to arrange or create an image to post. 

Also, what is the ideal ratio for a cover image? Is it possible to have the area rotate through some images or even have a video associated with it like the default splash page? If I build a composite image for the space, what is the safe zone like so any images aren't cropped badly? It looks like the image changes it's ratio depending on the window size/screen size so this may not be practical to consider. Abstracts and patterns might be safest.

Trying to figure out when to use these types of content. How are groups and organizations the same or different? Are organizations more like a business card, or a fully functioning content area? (I can't get my site to allow me to add orgs so I haven't been able to try them). Are groups like subsets of the overall site? Do events/albums/posts etc added to the group appear to people not in the group? 

For my site the groups will be the most active areas, but I'm using this to end having more than a dozen separate separate site. The site wide areas will be designed to replace an existing Facebook private group.

If you vote on one of the polls on this site when it loads the results it shows the poll just answered in every poll's answer area.

Can't find the place to edit the text that overlays the cover image. Help!

Can't figure out where to go to configure the pages so the various elements occupy  columns and not span the page and stack up.

I stumbled across how to add events and channels, but not organizations. 

Also, the photos for pages need to be squares? What is the target size? Also for th e cover page or profile page no size is suggested

That did the trick and helped me find the splash/cover page text too.
