ADVANCED Customization FAQ
NOTE: Most of these hacks and tricks work perfectly - they are, for the most part, hacks and tricks supported by the Dgrin community of customizers. Be aware that as SmugMug grows, changes, adds to the site functionality, certain hacks or tricks may need updating. Some may not work in the future, and there's no guarantee. If something goes wrong, post a question in the customizing forum and the community and SmugMug will help
