How to work with Album Manager? (1 post)

    HI There,

    I have NextGen installed, but I really don't understand the logic behind the album manager. I rather have just albums and sub-albums, but that isn't probably how this plugin works. The wording gallery and album also confuse me really, but that aside.

    What I want is to build one big photo gallery. However in this case it should be "album" I guess. And within them all the separate albums (I guess "galleries" would be the proper word .. you see .. confusing!) and sub-albums.

    Photo gallery
    - Carnaval
    --- Carnaval 2010
    - General
    --- Cd recording
    - Party
    --- Party 2008
    --- Party 2009
    --- Party 2010

    So one page, where Carnaval, General and Party will be shown. And after you click Party you will see the 3 albums on the page. Just like a regular image gallery should work in my opinion.

    However, how do I set it up?

    1. Make the galleries first, those are the subalbums (party 2008, party 2009 and so on) I believe ...
    2. Then how would I put them together to get what I want above?

    Also why do new galleries don't automatically get posted ? Can we do that?
    Otherwise the whole function of this plugin is basically nothing for a non-technical client that has to work with this ... I don't really see them using the Album Manager properly ...

    If anyone can put me in the right direction, that would be awsome !

    Thanks :)
