Thumbnails and private albums
« on: September 21, 2005, 11:18:39 pm »

Hi there

Firstly i must say, what an excellent bit of software!! I started playing with it earlier on this afternoon and am getting around everything pretty easily.

I downloaded one of the user themes and have been customising it but have come across a bit of a hiccup and was wondering if anyone else has tried to do this before. I have tried searching the forum but am starting to lose focus and haven't really come up with anything yet.

I have setup a couple main catagories with albums below them. Now for each album i want to have a thumbnail - Got that working fine. But now the trick is, i don't want to use a picture in the album for its thumbnail. I want to keep all the thumbnails in their own album out of the way from the rest of the gallery. - Cool, got that sorted but then when i make the thumbnail album private so that the public can't see it, then the thumbnails on the home page don't work?! I change the settings for the thumbnail album back so that everyone can view it and the thumbnails for the albums work fine...

You can check out

I hope that makes sense?! Any help would be greatly appreciated

Have a wicked day!
