[Solved (sort of)]: List View for mp3/mid files
« on: August 10, 2004, 06:53:31 pm »

You open an album, and all the files in the album are .mp3 or .mid.
Once the album opens up, you see the default thumbnail images for MP3 and MID.
Is there a way to have a Index view instead of Thumbnail View?

Thanx
Alex

a view without thumbnails. for example if you open up My Documents folder on your desktop, and go to View -> List.
Something similar to that. Since all the mp3s in that album will have the same exact thumbnail, i think it would be easier to browse them in List view. But I just want this option in some albums, not all. The ones that have any sort of images in them, Thumbnail View. The ones that have no images in them, but have other files (mp3s, midis), List View.

Thank you!

change all generic thumbnails for mp3, mid, wav and so on you don't want a thumbnail to be displayed to a 1x1 pixel transparent graphic - is that your question?

its not that I dont want a thumbnail (and I dont), but its more the way that the list of files is displayed. Right now it shows them in a table format (4 cols 3 rows), but I just want a listing like this (sort of an <Li >):

Jay-Z - Change Clothes - 5 views - user1234
Adam Freeland - We Want Your Soul (Edit) - 46 views - user3342
Delerium Feat Sarah McLachlan - Silence (DJ Tiesto Remix) - 40 views - user1235
...
...
...

and so on.....

Make your own theme and you can do exactly that.  Just take a look at the default theme to get a feel for how everything is done and go from there.

You have 2 options, both of which require you to modify the theme.php.

1.  make 2 seperate installs, one for normal display of pics, one using the modified theme.  They can use the same database, and look as though they are part of the same install.

2.  Modify the theme, and use the mod available to set these albums to use a different theme than the rest of the site.

The easiest way is to make a seperate theme that displays the albums as a list. You can then modify your original theme so that the following is added to the links for audio files:

&theme=[your-second-theme]
