  I think it works by when you click somebody's photo as being a favorite of yours , it shows up in your member center.

  ..thanks Gregory! I should have been more explicit; I meant, my customers are trying to save their favorites from their private galleries on my website & apparently the favorites disappear when they visit the website again!This is a new feature on the pro websites so I am not sure if it is even possible for them to be saved!

  I see. Don't know about that. Maybe they need a deluxe site or gallery of their own.
I saw in the descriptions that pro sites have visitor stats, but it didn't explain how anything works.
Could be something about their computer retaining cookies form websites.

  The way the Favorite feature works is when a person marks a photo as a Favorite, a cookie is written in their browser cache that associates that browser on that computer with that Deluxe/Pro BetterPholio in our database. As long as the visitor comes back using the same computer/browser combination and the cookie is still intact, they will see a customized gallery titled My Favorites on that Deluxe/Pro BetterPholio's Gallery page. that My Favorites gallery will contain every photo they've marked as a favorite on that website. If a different browser on the same computer is used, or a different computer, or the cookie is deleted, there will be no My Favorites gallery listed for them.

I hope that helps you understand how this new feature works.
