[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] album mode = compact (5 posts)

    I realize I'm running the beta of nextgen (1.0.0-beta3) but I just couldn't help myself, really. Anyhow. I'm trying to re-build an older site of mine using wordpad and the nextgen gallery.

    The new version of the gallery at pinhole.org (http://pinhole.org/?page_id=40) is the issue. The compact mode for the albums isn't rendering in rows; it renders in one vertical list.

    Ideally I'd just like to list the names of the albums in alphabetical order or by modified date in descending order.

    I'd be happy just to get them rendering in a more compact form.

    the OLD pinhole site (http://www.pinhole.org/gallery/index.cfm) is what I'd like an album listing to look like; dauntuing I know but I have over 500 artists in the gallery now and it is what it is...

    What short code do you insert into your post ? Three times [album id=x] or one time [album id=x] did you added the galleries in one album ?

    That was it! I was creating one album per artist and using [album id=x] a number of times... which is kind of how I envisioned it working but hey... Anyhow, I've created a single album "Pinhole" and am madly adding galleries to it.

    It'd be really handy to have options like paging and sorting at the album level, there are about 500 artists in the Pinhole.org gallery at present and I add more all the time.

    Nice work! Thank-you for creating NextGen and sharing it with the world.

    B/.

    Heya, I'm having the same problem, but need to keep 2 separate albums. I am using the compact version, and would like them all to appear in a horizontal line rather than a vertical one. On your website [http://nextgen.boelinger.com/album/ - specifically here] Alex you seem to be able to achieve this.

    I am using the short code: [album id=1 template=compact] [album id=2 template=compact]

    Cheers,
    Alys

    have the same issue here, when i choose the compact view, each album will have its own line/row. here's the site:
    http://www.sancarlenians.org/sites/mellerandy/?page_id=22

    the code in my page was the same as alysss above, [album id=1 template=compact][album id=2 template=compact]

    here's what i noticed, the generated html code in my page is:

    <div class="ngg-albumoverview">
    	<div class="ngg-album-compact">
    		<div class="ngg-album-compactbox">
    		<h4>...</h4>
    		<p>...</p>
    	</div>
    </div>
    <div class="ngg-clear"> </div>
    <div class="ngg-albumoverview"> ... </div>
    <div class="ngg-clear"> </div>
    <div class="ngg-albumoverview"> ... </div>
    <div class="ngg-clear"> </div>

    and it goes on. I think the "ngg-clear" breaks it to make one album in a separate line.

    looking at other code, should it be like this:

    <div class="ngg-albumoverview">
    	<div class="ngg-album-compact">
    		<div class="ngg-album-compactbox">
    		...
    		</div>
    	</div>
    </div>
    <div class="ngg-albumoverview">...</div>
    <div class="ngg-albumoverview">(...and so on)</div>
    <div class="ngg-clear"> </div>

    the last part or end code of your album list in compact view should be the "ngg-clear" and not on every "ngg-albumoverview"

    so how would i attain that? i hope i have explained this clear. I know a lot of people have the same issue. Thanks and I appreciate all the help.
