Number of Categories per Page
« on: January 04, 2006, 10:45:04 pm »

Is there a way to control how many categories are listed per page. Much akin to how you can specify the number Albums and Thumbs per page?

no you can't control that - all categories are being displayed no matter what. I recommend creating sub-categories that make sense and stop them from showing (there's a config option to accomplish this). Imo, this is all a matter of clever gallery setup, with the amount of organization that is needed for your page.

Ok, so I am not certain whether you are saying I can't do what it is I need to. Let me explain a little and see if I am just missing something.

I am utilizing Categories. I have a root category followed by two othesr: "2005 Events" and "2006 Events"

The category "2005 Events" has about 50 categpries below it that I need to present to the user. Thing is, I cannot reduce this number of categories. She wants to see a listing with 10 Categories per page.

Am I just missing something?

such a feature doesn't exist. If you need it, you'll have to code it.
Post a link to your page, I'm convinced that there are other options.

Uh oh.  I can see it coming, but somehow I cannot look away.

edit: Oh, I could at least yell out and hope for the best.  spacebass5000: Take a closer look at GauGau's signature line and read this for more details: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=22469.0.

Yes: the word "post" doesn't equal the words "send me a PM".
Additionally, you have removed the "Powered by Coppermine" tag at the bottom, so there's no support for you. Good bye.
