What is the difference between a site, a gallery, or an item?
A site is the root of all your content. Your site can contain multiple galleries as well as content such as your biography and contact information. A gallery is what contains your art items. You can have multiple galleries within your one site for categorizing different aspects of your art, such as a gallery for your ocean paintings, and a separate gallery for your photography. An item is one of your actual art pieces contained within your gallery. In short, an item is contained within your gallery and your gallery is contained within your site. You can have multiple items and multiple galleries within your one site.
