Can't Get Rid of the Album List Thumbnails
« on: March 19, 2005, 09:26:39 pm »

All right, I have almost 190 albums, so it's really very hard on people who have slow computers to view my album list.  I don't want any thumbnails on the album list, just the text links to the albums themselves.

I was under the impression that, on the "Config" page, marking "no" for "Show first level album thumbnails in categories" would do what I wanted, but it makes no difference and the thumbnails are still there?  Am I misunderstanding what that option does, or is it just not responding for some reason for me?  If that's just not what it does, do I need to manually edit something to get rid of those thumbnails?

Your albums are not in categories so that setting is ineffective. You should put your albums into categories. Then that setting will mean something. It would also make it easier for your visitor to browse when things are better organized.

You could edit the code so that thumbnails don't show up for albums, but then it makes upgrades a hassle. It would be better in the long run to re-organize.

You don't have any categories, so all your albums are root albums, therefore they will all show on the front page.

You need to create some categories, and put the albums in them, then they won't show on the front page with the settings for first level albums set to no.

If you want the albums to remain root albums, then you will have to modify your theme.php, to remove this table cell from the $template_album_list

Code: [Select]
<td align="center" height="100%" valign="middle" class="thumbnails">
                        <img src="images/spacer.gif" width="{THUMB_CELL_WIDTH}" height="1" class="image" style="margin-top: 0px;
 margin-bottom: 0px; border: none;"><br />
                        <a href="{ALB_LINK_TGT}" class="albums">{ALB_LINK_PIC}<br /></a>
                </td>

It has been a long time now since I did my little bit here, and have done no coding or any other such stuff since. I'm back to being a noob here

Thank you for the help and code.  Unfortunately, categorizing the albums is not an option, given the content.  Grouping them would be utterly arbitrary and make it far more confusing to anyone who is familiar with anime.

What you could do is change the image that displays for each album to the default image. That way they will only download the image once, rather than 190 different thumbnails.
(although it looks like you might have found a solution already)
