    Thanks again for the help before.

    Now I have four albums. suppose I want to put "Lance" (album) under "people"- I would have the "people" set as default -none- but then Lance, I would change it to choose People as the parent. (edit album, drop dowm menu, choose people)

    But when I refresh the site, I see the "People" album (and it says view one album inside) that shows the people pictures but I dont see Lance pictures.

    Help!

    Make sure the number of pictures in each album is larger than the 'Photocount treshold' value, otherwise these pictures are used for the cover only. That is a feature, not a bug.

    The first album has 6 pictures.(people)
    The second album has 7 pictures.(lance)

    Threshold is set to 1

    Changed the 2nd album to parent under people.

    Still can't see it on the website.
    (I see "Slideshow
    View 1 album and 6 photos") Which the 1 album represents Lance but when I click on it, I only see the 6 pictures(people). there is a huge blank space on the top.

    Thanks.

    Could you set max thumbnails per page to 12 and max covers per page to 4,
    just for testing?

    but now Im forced to only see the slideshow option and not view pictures of the "people" album if that makes sense.

    Thanx it works now (when paginating is on). You see the people album on the next page (see the pagelinks below). It looks like a bug. I will investigate on it and come back to you.

    "Various pictures of people

    Slideshow
    View 1 album and 6 photos"

    Notice how the "view photos" and 1 album are linked together and clicking on it, I can't click "view photos" for this catageory.

    The view photos and 1 album link points to the content of the album. On the first page you have the sub-album, on the second page you have the thumbs. When pagination is on (at least one of the two not 0), between albums and thumbnails is always a pagebreak.

    I found the problem, it was a bug, and is fixed now.

    Wait approx half an hour and then re-install the plugin as described here. Hotfix numbr is 004.

    After poking around, I discovered another challenge.

    I go to album, and click copy picture and choose another album. It didn't copy or move the picture into the album I chose.

    " On the first page you have the sub-album, on the second page you have the thumbs"

    This is still true. I am still seeing this.?

    BINGO, got it.

    Easier to set up this way:
    Create album- People Upload one picture to use as cover.
    Within it, create two albums. "Cam" and then those previous 6 thumbs are put in another album, "Variety"-
    Both cam and variety set to parent of people. Problem solved. A little extra step, but it worked.

    :)

    I left website (animals) so you can see what I am referring to. The thumbs in page 2- some animals, i want to move over into the zoo album. The "copy picture" feature does not work- I'll leave the site alone until I hear back from you in case you want me to test something. :)

    You should select the destination album and then press the blue 'Copy photo to' link, it is a littlke clumsy, i agree, but as soon as you know how it works, you will love it.

    BTW de-activating and/or deleting the plugin will NEVER destroy your albums or photos.
