show subalbums on gallery home? (8 posts)

    Is there a way to show thumbnails for the subalbums? Our members tend to have multiple albums for different trips and events. When they have a subfolder, it only shows a blank box and a link to "view 2 ablums".

    Also, if the above can be done, it would be nice if the names of the subablums can be shown under the thumbnail.

    The Dave Roper album has two sub-albums.
    You can upload one or a few photos into it to get a coverphoto.
    As lang as the number of photos is smaller than the setting in Table I item 11 (Photocount treshold) it will look as if there are only subalbums and no photos in it.
    Further, try to change the layout of the album covers by changing Table I-17 (say 300) and maybe Table IV-13 (coverphoto position - top ? ).

    All Tables are in the Photo ALbums > Settings admin page.

    I was looking to have thumbnails from the subalbums show up on the parent album. So if there are two subablbums, there would be two thumbails.

    If you look into the parent album (%%album=...%%) you see the covers of the subalbums (and/or photos in the parentalbum if there are more than the tresholdvalue)

    yes, but you have to click on the parent album to see thumbnails from subalbums. I would like to see the thumbnails for these subablums on the gallery home page.

    yes, I could ask my users to put a photo from each of their subalbums inside the parent album, but that would stil only show one thumbnail. Plus it adds more steps to novice computer users.

    Please let me know if there is any way that thumbnails from subablums can be added to the parent album screen in the gallery home page. if not, is this something that can be added in the next release?

    Say the subalbums have ids 3,7 and 14.

    Try this:

    %%wppa%% %%album=3%%
    %%wppa%% %%album=7%%
    %%wppa%% %%album=14%%

    this gives you three display areas of thumbnails on the same page/post
    You may add text between like:

    See the photos of Joe:
    %%wppa%% %%album=3%%
    Here are the fotos from my latest hoilliday:
    %%wppa%% %%album=7%%
    These are from someone else:
    %%wppa%% %%album=14%%
    Hope yopu like them.

    On a single site installation:

    The fullsize images in: .../wp-content/uploads/wppa/

    The thumbnails in: .../wp-content/uploads/wppa/thumbs/

    On a multiblog site installation:

    The fullsize images in: .../wp-content/blogs.dir/[blogid]/wppa/

    The thumbnails in: .../wp-content/blogs.dir/[blogid]/wppa/thumbs/

    The photonames are: [id].[ext] e.g.: 3.jpg 4.gif 5.png

    The names and decriptions are in database tables, as is the album info, comments, ratings, exif and iptc data.

    Do not manually change anything to the files, you can do almost anything in wppa+ if needed.
