sub-categories and albums
« on: February 07, 2006, 10:50:16 am »

hi all!

I've a gallery with 2 categories and each have 3 sub-cat and in each sub-cat, there're 2 albums
I'd like to display the names of the albums on the main page but it displays only the names of the cats and sub-cats.

here's an example :
cat 1
   |
   -- sub-cat 1
   |      |
   |      -- album 1
   |      -- album 2
   -- sub-cat 2
   |      |
   |      -- album 1
   |      -- album 2
   -- sub-cat 3
         |
         -- album 1
         -- album 2

cat 2
   |
   -- sub-cat 1
   |      |
   |      -- album 1
   |      -- album 2
   -- sub-cat 2
   |      |
   |      -- album 1
   |      -- album 2
   -- sub-cat 3
         |
         -- album 1
         -- album 2

How can I display the albums and their thumbnails?

thanks

There's a config option for showing thumbnails of albums one level deep in the category structure (as GauGau said).

For deeper, there's no way to do it with the core Coppermine system.  You could write a plugin to do so.  CPGOCat is one plugin that replaces the 'catlist' display with one that allows ordering of the categories.  You could do something similar to get what you want displayed on the main page.

The main issue I see is how to organize the categories and subcategories.  Are you going to flatten things and show all the albums with notes about which categories they are in?

I can't post a link at time because the gallery is only set on local page

if I organize my cat, sub-cats and albums like that it's because of the content of each one.
I'll take a look to reorganize if possible

thanks again
