What are Collections?

Collections allow us to collect content on the site and organize them into personal folders and collection sets. Each collection can contain any combination of content type from Projects to Banners posted by any member. It's essentially super favorites with ability to publish them for the community to explore!

How to CREATE new collection folders and sets

When logged in, you can access your collection management by clicking "My Collections" in the top right of most pages.

Click the appropriate icon to create a new folder or collection set.

You can rename folders and collections by selecting the folder or collection set and clicking the pencil and papter icon:

Drag and drop to move folders or collection sets

How to ADD items to a collection

1) From submission:
Click the icon as shown below.


2) From listing pages:
Click the icon shown below

How to REMOVE items from a collection

Drag and drop an item outside of a collection.

How to ORDER items in a collection

You can order items in a collection. By default a collection is sorted by your personal order preference on public pages.

1) In collection management, drag and drop an item to change the order.

You can also do this in "list" view. Switch to "list" view by clicking the icon circled below:

2) On the public page, while in "Collector Order", drag and drop to change the order.

You can also do this in "list" view. Switch to "list" view by clicking the icon circled below:

How to EDIT the custom Icon, Description and Tags, Disabling Comments

You can add a custom icon, description and tags by clicking the edit page icon below the collection.

Or by clicking "Edit Collection" on the public page.

To CHANGE your collection icon:
Click the pencil icon to change your collection cover photo

Then click "Browse" to select a photo from your computer.

Write a description about your collection by using the text field.

When you add a description, it will appear below the collection:

ADD tags to your collection so that they appear in keyword searches.
Add them by simply typing into the Tag box, located at the bottom of the "Edit Collection Page". Then press "+". Don't forget to SAVE prior to closing tout of the Edit Page!

Tags will appear under your description.

By default, comments are enabled. You can DISABLE them by going to the edit mode of your collection (explained above) and scrolling down to the bottom. Then, uncheck “Allow Comments”.

How to SHARE Collections with community

You can change the share access at the bottom of a collection.

Collections Share statuses:
* Private: Only you can see and access. For personal organization purposes.
* Hidden: You can share a direct url to the collection.
* Public: (Must have 3 or more items in collection) Shared with community. Appears in the public collections listing and on your member page.
How to DISPLAY Collections on your profile

To display your ALL of your public collections on your profile, go to your profile, and click the blue +Widget button. Then select the “Collections” widget:

To display the CONTENTS of 1 collection, go to your profile, click the blue +Widget button and then select the "Collection" widget.

There are 5 ways to display the contents in your Collection widget.

1. Small Icons
2. Medium Icons
3. Large Icons

To change how the contents of the collection appear in the widget, hover over the title bar and click the “v” , as shown below:

Click “Edit Widget”. From this edit panel, use the drop down menu next to “Display Format.”

Select the format you wish to have the collection contents be displayed by using the drop down menu next to "Display Format".

Note: From this Edit panel, you can also change the title displayed on the Collection widget. This will NOT change the collection title, it will only appear as the title on your widget.

* Up to 50 folders / subfolders

Are collections in the management tab alphabetical and numerical by default?

Mine are stuck with being alphabetical and numerical/ can't change the order of which collection is on top or bottom.

Hi! Yes, collections in the management tab are alphabetical/numerical by default and as of right now, there isn't away to change the order. We will add it to our list of recommended features and implement it in the near future :) Apologies for any inconvenience

Was away for Thanksgiving. Looking into this now for you. In the meantime, try right clicking the folder you want to create a new folder / collection in. I just added that the other day and it's yet to be documented.

don't expect any help from PMC on this matter... I myself have zero response on exactly same issue for nearly a month now on ticket tracker. They completely give a f*...

incredibly disappointed from such approach here at pmc site. I did expected at least a lame cynic response like: "lol, if works for us, you suck..." but nope... not even a single response.

I have "lost" access to all my collections with projects like builds, maps. etc.
One can still find them under my profile, but I cannot see them in the menu when I want to add some project into them.


cca. 2 weeks ago, it fixed itself somehow, maybe browser cache reset helped, I dunno, but since then it is bugged again. On the next day I was already not able to add anymore collections to it.

It seems redundant - that everything goes into one folder. The folder has almost the same name as the box it's in. (The box: "My Collections." The folder: "Collections.") Yes, you can change the name, but their purposes are the same as well.

I came here hoping to find out how to create a second folder - at the same level (at the top of the hierarchy, like a brother folder). However, the example/directions only show how to add a folder UNDER "Collections." Does that mean it's not possible?

Is my understanding correct? There is one upper folder and there can be only one? Is the "My Collections" box going to include something else someday (future plans)? That would explain it, at least. Or am I just unable to figure out how to do it? I use a script blocker, it could be that some weird script needs to be allowed. (but everything else works as expected)

Sidenote: I do like this system. A bit awkward, but I like it. I hope to see it continued and improved upon. Would be nice if we could write a little note about each item. For example: "buggy, wait for updates" or "for Christmas time" or "haven't tried yet" or "too dark, but has great mobs". Notes like that.
Been uploading items to my collection folder and now the folder has dissapeared

I followed on how to add skins to the My Collection folder, but it's not working for me. I tried both dragging the icon to the folder and right clicking on it. I tried this yesterday and thinking that it was just because I created the account that day I tried it once more today. It's just not working.

I created a subfolder and put a set in there, resulting in it disappearing completely from my collections menu and bugging out. I want to delete it but I can't, since it still is in my profile, but it doesn't offer an option to delete it from there. Please help me fix this.

I'm encountering a lot of problems. I dragged and dropped some folders/collections to reorganise them in the collections side menu, and now they've disappeared from that meny entirely. They still exist on my profile, in my private collections, but I'm unable to add any more items to them because they don't exist in the side drop-down collections menu.

There is an option for Private, Hidded or Public. To make it Public, you must have three or more items in your collection.
