    There is a custom box ( See Photo albums -> Settings admin page Table II-B 14, 15 ).
    The content is static, but you may enter html ( and js ).

    The 'mini'slideshows on your site will have (when you enable the custom box ( and you can move it upward in Table IX-E ) will have id's :

    wppa-custom-1, wppa-custom-2

    etc.

    You could do something like this in the page AFTER the wppa+ shortcodes:
    (Edit with text editor, NOT the visual)

    <script type="text/javascript">
    var sold='<p style="color:red;" >Sold</p>';
    var rental='<p style="color:blue;" >Rental</p>';
    jQuery("#wppa-custom-1").html(sold);
    jQuery("#wppa-custom-2").html(sold);
    jQuery("#wppa-custom-3").html(rental);
    </script>

    Thanks, I tried it.

    An easier way is to add text header as I have done, but neither are visually pleasing.

    The corner banner for the property/real estate album is essencial and attention grabber. I was hoping that you can add this feature to the album's info page for the next upgrade.

    Regards

    I have been thinking about this, and indeed you have a usefull feature here.

    I could do one of two possibilities:

    1 (simple): the ability to insert the album description (may contain html to format the text) in the custom box.

    2 (more complex): add an extra box that contains album specific content.

    I could implement one of the above in a few days.

    In any way i think that my first solution (adding javascript in the page) is not so good, as you have to keep track of the numbering of the items yourself, leading to errors easily.

    Other thing:
    You have a layout issue in the start/stop/slower/faster bar.
    This is fixed in the next version, so do not worry about this.

    Thanks for your hard work.

    The description field is too long for what I need. I might be using the word "banner" wrong. Realtor's album need a tag/sing/banner that can be supper imposed like a layer on one of the corner of all the pictures. Usually one or two words to high light the features: New Listing, Price Reduced, View,...SOLD.

    Watermark is permanent, I need to be able to change/high light the different features as the time goes by on my listing.

    Thanks

    Why not use watermark, You can very easy refresh your original photo (without the watermark) and put an other on it.

    FTP your photos to your depot directory ( See the Import Photos admin screen to learn where that is ) and import (a single) photo with the update switch set. Then you can apply a new watermark.

    This feature has to be album setting as a layer to high light a feature for all the pictures.

    It looks to be fixed... If you open your own topic for a new problem you will have a very much faster answer! Maybe within a few hours, not 3 days.
