    Hi, I want to link cover photo of the album directly to slideshow. I don't want to display list of thumbnails. Before posting here, I looked into settings briefly but all in vain. In the settings, we just have 4 options for the link of cover photo -
    1)no link at all
    2)the plain photo
    3)same as title
    4)lightbox.

    No option to slideshow page !!

    I would appreciate any help on this :)

    Thanks,
    Sudha

    Yes it worked !! Thanks a lot. Its a beautiful plugin :)

    Also i wanted to know whether we can display the album listing inline. As of now, it is displayed one after the other in separate lines but i would like to have it displayed inline. Is it possible with the current settings or should i wait for the next release ?

    Set Table I-D1 to a smaller value, say 350. There will be as few album covers as possible on a row while they are not wider than 350 pixels.

    In that case you may mean something different of what i understand.

    Pls supply me a link to the page that shows the problem.

    BTW De-activate any caching or other speeding-up plugin

    Im trying this plugin in localhost. Hence sending you the screenshot of the page here -

    http://postimage.org/image/4q1acngef/

    According to the image, page has album 1, album 2, album 3 in three different lines. But I want all of them to appear in one single line.
    And preceding albums to appear in the next line/row. How is it possible according to the current settings ?

    You should make a parent album, and put the 3 albums as children.
    Then, display the content of the parent. Now your max coverwidth value will work.

    Example:

    Paret album, assume id = 7, name = container.
    Child albums Album 1 .. 3, ids: 1,2 and 3:

    Set parent of albums 1,2 and 3 to 'container' on the Album admin -> edit album information screen

    Shortcode:
    [wppa type="album" album="7"][/wppa]

    or:
    Script:
    %%wppa%% %%album=7%%
