WP Photo Album Plus
[resolved] Owner Short Code (4 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm currently using the short code:

    [wppa type="cover" album="$Parent Album Name" size="auto" align="center"][/wppa]

    Which works great to show the Parent Album cover then users can click the link to see all subordinate album covers.

    Question: if I would simply like to display album covers for all albums created by the same owner on the same page, is there short code for that? I checked the short code reference but couldn't figure it out. Thanks!

    Phil

    No, we do not have that yet.

    Suggestion:

    Make a parent album for every owner. Example: Jim is the owner, so create 'Jims albums'. Set the parent of all Jims albums to Jims albums, and display the content of Jims albums, i.e. the covers of all of Jims albums like:

    [wppa type="album" album="$Jims albums" ...

    Thanks opajaap. That's basically what I'm doing now, but would like to minimize the effort by eliminating the extra step of adding an album to a parent album. I know it sounds easy, but I'm setting up a site with many different users with varying degree's of computer literacy and would like to make it as easy as possible. If it's not too much trouble please add "owner" to the shortcode in a future update, that way there is one less thing for my users to do wrong. Thanks!
