Displaying album description on thumbnail page
« on: April 22, 2004, 07:37:31 am »

Just looking for a heads up on how to display the album description on the thumpnails page.

Wading ones way through that HUGE template file, wow.

Thanks heaps

I'd like to be able to do this, too.  Any ideas?

If you can't or don't want to wait (I couldn't!  :)) , you could add a function to the /include/functions.inc, just before

Code: [Select]
// Return the name of a user
function get_username($uid)
Add:
Code: [Select]
// Get the name of an album
function get_album_desc($aid)
{
    global $CONFIG;
    global $lang_errors;
    $result = db_query("SELECT description from {$CONFIG['TABLE_ALBUMS']} WHERE aid='$aid'");
    $count = mysql_num_rows($result);
    if ($count > 0) {
        $row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
        return $row['description'];
    } else {
        return "Album not found";
    }
}

Then, in /themes/myfavoritetheme/thumb_view_title_row.inc, just after:
Code: [Select]
global $name;

add:
Code: [Select]
$album_desc = get_album_desc($_GET[album]);

Then, wherever you want the description to appear, you can insert the $album_desc variable (also in the themes/yourtheme/thumb_view_title_row.inc).  For example, after the $album_name variable, you could add <BR>$album_desc.

I'm using Coppermine for CMS (voted the best phpNuke photo gallery!), so it might not work exactly the same for regular Coppermine, and there's probably a more elegant solution.  But this is great software (thanks!) and this tweak worked for me...
