That is what is sent to the script in your sidebar template

display_gallery("random", "", "", 1, 6, 1);

Curently in the sidebar templates and showframe.php its limited to one column of 6 photos or undercats pal 2 rows 2 photos. You could see easy enough where to change it in both places ;)

nope aint got it... basically i thought it was this >

$rphotos = $Globals['recentnum'];
manually edited to 1...you see the index shows 6 regarless of what i do there... if i click more...then i get the number i want... what am i missing?

bizzare, showing 6 everytime i hit index...

tell ya what would be nice... an option to alter that number from admin someplace rather then these edits :)

No neither of those lines. You will see the hard coded $rphotos = 6; line ;)

In your sidebar template you will see the line I posted above you change the 6 to something else if you want that as default
