User gallery usability
« on: October 13, 2006, 10:54:01 pm »

Hi:) I suppose It will be nice if users be able to get their albums listed at users category. Now they hardly know what to do - the only text link links to profile. Sure they may click the prevew image but as I know most of them don't understand it.

Sorry for my poor English(: I'll try to explain. When user goes to page called users gallery he (or she) see the list of users (text links= usernames). If the user click this  link he get the profile page. I think it will be more comfortable for users to see list of albums (text link+ prevew image) As a rule they needn't check the profiles. First they want to see images & sometime afterwards see profile... From profile page they can't see all pics & albums of user -only last uploaded. Sometimes they even can't find their only albums because of the only way to reach the list of useres album is by clicking the image below the username at category page.

This theme customization may do what you want. 

Edit themes/yourtheme/theme.php and add in or modify $template_user_list_info_box as shown below:
Code: [Select]
// HTML template for the USER info box in the user list view
$template_user_list_info_box = <<<EOT

        <table cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" width="100%" class="user_thumb_infobox">
                <tr>
                        <th><script language="javascript">document.writeln('<a href="index.php?cat=' + (10000+{USER_ID}) + '">{USER_NAME}</a>')</script></th>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                        <td>{ALBUMS}</td>
                </tr>
                <tr>
                        <td>{PICTURES}</td>
                </tr>
        </table>

EOT;

I don't know if there's any reason to keep this thread on the "Features Request" board.  I agree that people may get confused about how things are linked, but it seems to me that the username should be linked to the user's profile.  Maybe there should be a different clear way to indicate the link for the user's albums, currently that's the preview image only.  If so, this feature request could stay here. 

By the way, related user-gallery theme/anycontent customizations are: User albums on the index page and Showing specific user galleries on the main page.

Thank u so much:) I did it with your help:) I suppose it depends on the gallery - if it contains design projects (like mine) it's very important to have clear & direct way to reach users albums. Maybe in future we will be able to choose:)
