Nested Categories and Thumbnails
« on: August 13, 2011, 03:50:30 am »

Ok, so question #2 today (hopefully I posted this in the relevant forum).  I have 4 categories nested under a main category.  I see that I can add thumbnails to the nested category titles that contain albums, but there seems to be no way to add a thumbnail to the main category which only contains the 4 nested categories. 

I'm trying to figure out if this is the norm - in other words, can a top level category which has no albums directly below it display a thumbnail?  If not, is there a way to do so?

No category thumbnail for user galleries and categories that don't contain albums with pics in it, but only sub-categories

So no, that's not possible by default. We had some discussion here in the board, but I cannot remember if somebody released a workaround for that issue or not. Please try to find that thread(s) by using the board search.

Ok, thank you. I did search but didn't find a related thread. I'll try searching some more. I wonder if there could be a plugin/mod to set permission to not see an album on the front end but only allow a single image to display for the top level category thumbnail.

I'm really foggy on this one too... but I think the work around was to move an existing album into the category temporarily... assign the picture.. then move the album out.

Thank you for the suggestion - I gave it a try, but the thumbnail didn't stay after the album was moved.  Again, thanks for trying to help.
