    Hi everyone,

    I've scoured the forum here for help with this, but I cannot quite get a hold of how to first make an album with seperate galleries on it all on the same page.
    And then also how to have a displayed thumbnail for the gallery in the album.
    This is what I'm trying to setup

    thanks so much for the help

    First, click on the album tab, in the "Add new album" field, input your album name then click update. After, choose the album from the drop-down list, and drag the galleries from the "Select Gallery" into the Album. Create a new page, give it a title (Photo Gallery, etc.) and in the body, insert [album=X,extend] (X is the album number you created).

    Second, to get a default thumbnail for each gallery, go to "manage gallery", click edit on a chosen gallery, once the gallery is loaded, click "Edit gallery" (upper right, above "Save changes") and a hidden menu will appear where you may include text, a default thumbnail, etc.

    Hope this helps
    Gene

    My pleasure Beach, took me about an hour to find the critter, there's no written info on it.

    LOL,
