[Solved]: Keyword linking does not appear to work
« on: April 10, 2008, 04:26:45 pm »

Hi,

I've just installed CPG but am having a problem with the way the keywording is supposed to work.

As I understand it, in order to display one image in multiple albums, you add a keyword to the image and you then add that keyword to the albums in which you want it to appear.

I've done this but the image is not showing in the second album.

For example, on my site, www.shutter-life.co.uk, I've added a picture to the landscape album, as it's a black & white photo, I also want to display it in the black & white album so I've added the keyword blackwhite to the picture and for the Black & White album, I have added the keyword blackwhite also but the image is not displaying in the Black & White Album.

Any ideas? According to the documentation, this is how it should work.

Thanks,
Rob

Rob,

It works exactly as you describe for me.

I hate to suggest the obvious, but have you double-checked the keyword spelling, and are you sure you clicked "Update album" ?

Looks fine to me. Be aware that linked files are not really in the album, so they can't be used as an album thumbnail.

Yep spelling has been checked, it's blackwhite in both the album and the image keyword fields and I had clicked on update album at the time

Rob,

Your site is working OK for me. Do you realise the number of linked files doesn't show in the album total unless you set that option in Config?
