To hide empty categories, copy the function theme_display_cat_list to your theme.php file if it doesn't exist. Then, comment out
Code: [Select]
echo template_eval($template_noalb, $params);

To hide empty albums, copy the functions theme_display_album_list and theme_display_album_list_cat to your theme.php file if they don't exist. Then, find
Code: [Select]
foreach($alb_list as $album) {and below, add
Code: [Select]
            if ($album['pic_count'] == 0) {
                continue;
            }
in both functions.

Have a look at the file 'theme.php' in your theme folder. If the mentioned functions aren't present, copy them from themes/sample/theme.php to your theme's theme.php file, directly before the closing

I now have the sections:
theme_display_cat_list
theme_display_album_list
and
theme_display_album_list_cat
in my theme.php, my theme is hardwired
I copied the sections from the sample theme as you mentioned and put it before the closing, but i still see the category and albums that are empty.
The page are now live at http://galleri.fkljusdal.se
What can be wrong?
Thanks in advance

Done that now but still it hide to much, it hides both empty albums and albums with photos in, i have done albums for some categories like nature, portrait and so on, and on the first page the albums doesnt show, but if i look at the user galleries it show all users photos, is it that the photos are just linked to the albums or?

So the albums that will be hidden incorrectly contain just linked files, but no 'real' files?

Replace the above code with
Code: [Select]
            if ($album['pic_count'] == 0 && $album['link_pic_count'] == 0) {
                continue;
            }

Try again
Then i added the code

 if ($album['pic_count'] == 0 && $album['link_pic_count'] == 0) {
                continue;
            }

then the page only became white, nothing at all to see, i thought it could be a missing ( before at the second $album, but no.
More ideas thanks.

You accidentally overwrote the
Code: [Select]
$count ++;in both functions. Restore the original functions and re-apply the changes.

You have to put the code between
Code: [Select]
foreach($alb_list as $album) {and
Code: [Select]
$count ++;

And new question appeared, is it possible to show the text,
(example, 10 albums even though it are 11 albums) and then it are photos in the 11:th album it show the text 11 in the text below the albums?

10. One question per thread
We have a strict "One question/issue per thread rule", which helps both supporters/moderators to keep track of open/closed issues as well as users who search the board or browse it, looking for answers to their question.

Additionally, I don't understand your question. Search the board before you start a new thread.
