Why are the images from inserted Smugmug galleries arranged differently on the page than they are in Smugmug?

When I select and insert a Smugmug gallery into one of my pages, the order of the images as displayed on the page is usually different than the order in which I have the images arranged in my Smugmug gallery. I would hope and expect the order of the images to be preserved. Is there some way to control this?

Hmm... That is a good question... We take the images as they are sent to us from smugmug, but maybe we need to look into some other information to see if they also send something about the order they are in.

Could you provide a link to the gallery on both our site and smugmug so we can compare and test it out?

If it is a private gallery or something you don't want to share here, you can open a support ticket with the links.

Here's one example with just a few images, although there aren't (as far as I can tell) any of my galleries that match my smugmug image order when used in my site.

 

Smugmug gallery:

Gallery page on my site:

What's the deal with this? I have a specific order in which I want my images to appear.  It keeps placing the same image first no matter how I arrange images in smugmug.  The icon for my portfolio is zoomed in on my male models crotch and I can't change it.  This won't work for me.
