    That is extremely generous on your part, thitipatn! Thank you!
    One quick question: on the test site, you can toggle between dark and light themes. Is that something that is built into the package you have released too?

    edit: never mind, just found out that it is

    thitipatn, how do you get the item description in your popup comment box? I got rid of the exif info and wish to display only the image description. Thanks in advance.

    edit: sorry, I just found the info on your site.

    Just create a custom field called "info" and right the content in there. However, to eliminate the exif table all together, you need to edit the popup-comments.php file and delete it manually.

    Thank you so very much. I was only a few hours away from abandoning WP altogether in search of a more friendly photoblogging tool when you posted this. Talk about timing!

    I do have a question about the archive though. What does my permalink structure have to be and what do I have to name the page in order for it to be linked in the header? I've tried a combination of things and always get a 404.

    I'm looking forward to styling your theme this weekend. I can't thank you enough.

    Perhaps the powers that be could look at incorporating a little more photoblog friendly functions into WordPress as it is lagging behind most of the other blogging scripts in that department. I'm a diehard WP user but was forced to consider alternatives. I encourage you to add to the codex Pat - the photoblog section is pretty limited.

    Thanks again!

    I have the same question about Archives as NorthernPassages. I can't seem to get my test working either.

    One more question: How can I set the default style to be dark?

    The trick to my archive is that I setup a category called "All Entries" then I point the default archive page there. So the permalink will be just like when you call up a category.

    NorthernPassages: Your blog looks very nice!

    Neon: Just edit the header, make sure the first CSS file is the one you want it to be as a default. However, after you switch to a color, the blog will create a cookie on your computer and remember your last color. So the default is pretty much usable only at the first visit.

    thitipatn, how do you "point the default archive page" at that category? Sorry and thank you.

    I figured out what you meant by "point page" at category.

    thitipatn,

    I am having trouble with the archive links also. I set up the category, made it the default, and it still comes up 404'd....what could I be missing?

    When you set up the new category, make sure to give it that slug - "all-entries". Then, make sure that all your posts/entries are entered (checked) in that category too, in addition to the category you want that post to appear in.

    so, to recap:
    1. Create master archive category, call it anything, like "Archives"
    2. in Category Slug field enter "all-entries"
    3. for every post, check the box of the category you want that post to appear in AND the box of the "Archives" category.

    step #3. - When writing a new post, use the main “Post� field to post main upload photos and use the “Excerpt� field to post thumbnails.

    neon,

    Thanks for the reply. I have done the following but still get an error:

    so, to recap:
    1. Create master archive category, call it anything, like "Archives"
    2. in Category Slug field enter "all-entries"
    3. for every post, check the box of the category you want that post to appear in AND the box of the "Archives" category.

    Note I have been testing with only one foto posted so tonight I will attempt a second post, and will delete the first canned 'welcome to wordpress' post. Perhaps they are somehow screwing thing up.

    I'll report back with my results.

    thanks again to neon and thitpan

    How can i get the exif and info? I add a custom field called INFO and other called EXIF but i can't get anything.. any ideia?

    okay I have been through the directions on this thread at least 20 times and the method discussed does not work for me.

    but I figured out a different hack that works.

    Each category has an ID as well as a slug....I run wordpress on some other sites so I 'hovered' over a couple of categories to see how they were linked. They don't use a slug at all, they use a category id.

    In my case it was category id=2 so I figured that would get me to the proper 'archive' page just as well.

    So if the all entries method doesn't work try this....

    go to the header and locate the following code line [hint: It's 41] and it looks like this...

    "/category/all-entries" title="View all photos on this blog">Archives |

    go ahead and create your new category. category 1 is taken as 'uncatagorized' so category 2 will be the next category. Go ahead and name it whatever you want and feel free to ignore the 'slug' just remember the number.

    then replace /category/all-entries" with /?cat=2"

    replace line 41 with this line:

    /?cat=2" title="View all photos on this blog">Archives |

    That worked for me. I can't say if my method will be as serch engine friendly as Khun Thitipan's but it got me up and running.

    I'm glad I got this working as this is a kick ass theme. props to Thitipan.

    hope this helps...

    It says quite clearly below this text area where I am typing now (and presumably where you type, too :)
    Put code in between backticks.
    The "backticks" usually are on the left top part of the keyboard, next to "1" ;)

    Thitpan vomments that photoshop will not remove exif info; however, what if you imported your images using native softwre that came with your camera, or iPhoto. Perhaps you have no exif data to display...thats just a theory.

    Have you activated your plug-ins using the wordpress admin menu? [yet another theory]

    I am wondering if I can make a bulk upload once I have resized all of my images and thumbnails. Uploading all of the images to their directories and then updating the database table with the text that references them? I have phpMyAdmin installed and I just exported the table that lists posts, it seems pretty straight forward, but does anyone know if this is possible?

    I've solved the problem with the exif and info!

    You have to name the field Exif and Info with upper case first letter
    (Not exif and info as mentioned!)

    No it works for me!
    Hope that helps!

    Just talked to my database guy at work and he says it will be a snap. Use phpMyAdmnin to export the database as a text file, create your directories for thumbnails and images, upload said thumbnails and images, and then append the part of the database that deals with posts. I made two postings of thumbs and images manually and it was easy to see where the database stores the information of where the thumbnail and image is called.

    You will probably need to use an absolute link to both the image and the thumbnail [the whole URL http://www.yoursite.com/thumbs/1.jpg] to make sure that it is referenced correctly.

    This will speed up 'production' for any site that will have 100's of photos. Go ahead and upload only those photos that you need to develop or tweak your CSS / Theme and then when you are where you need to be upload everything, change the database [text file], save it using MyphpAdmin [this is really just a cut 'n paste, and check out the results.

    Note: You can continue to use the admin upload facility for any small updates, picture of the week, but this will help you get your site up and going immediately if you have already edited what photos you want to show.

    NOTE: The author of this post knows only enough about PHP and MySQL to be considered dangerous. He is going to attempt this tonight and will report back with results. Hopefully it is a valid idea/comment or there will be much tooth gnashing and hair pulling.
