Changing Category layout to look like this...
« on: January 19, 2008, 08:59:54 am »

I would like to know if it is possible to look of the Category thumbnail layout to look like the modules I use on my "main" site.  I've attached an image that shows the current (on the left) look of my layout and what I would like it to look like (on the right).

I'm pretty sure I can adjust the table properties in Coppermine to match the size and colors I need as well as inserting the lighter grey image for the Album title cell.  What I'm not sure is if Coppermine or html/CSS in general would allow Coppermine to write the Album Title text over that image?  I'm at work right now and don't have access to FF with the dev plugin to confirm this, but it's some thing I'd like to do this weekend if possible. 

Thanks,

Keith

This is possible - you'll need to edit themes/yourtheme/theme.php (and probably the stylesheet as well). For details, post details (i.e. post a link to your gallery and attach a zipped archive of your custom theme folder to your next posting).

Thanks for the direction GauGau.  I was able to get the image to show up and get the colors to match.  I am having trouble on a few things...

1.  I would like to add some space between each column so they are not all sitting right on top of each other.
2.  I can't seem to get the album titles to center from top to bottom on the new image (the title is to low).
3.  Is there a way to change the size of the three empty album cells at the bottom?

Link to the Category page I'm working from...  Automotive.

Attached is both my theme.php and style2.css files if they help you.  Also, I'm using my on theme called pi_dark.  I just edited the water_drop theme to my needs since it was already close to what I wanted.

Thank you again,

Keith

It looks like the Category Album page and the Album Thumbnail page uses the same CSS.  Is there a way to separate them so that you can style those pages differently?
