View Full Version : Two more questions about photopost gallery adding bbcode for pics etc
July 31st, 2007, 11:42 PM
OK finally I have managed to get my photopost working and all. Fixed all the other problems I had. I am sorry for having opened "litte" more than usual threads, but since I was totally or maybe still am a new beginner "with" photopost I had no other choice. However I would like to thank for the instant support i got on these forums.
Now I have two more questions regarding the photopost. I will try to make them short and to the point.
1) How do I add the additional stuff under photo for "Linked Thumbnail", "BB Code", "HTML Code". I have seen this on various photopost sites. I would appreciate if someone could give me a photopost URL thread where it explains how this can be done. In case you did not understand my question here is a screenshot:
2) For the main categories page like on http://www.pakstop.com/pictures/ I want to add a little thumbnail before each category. Like in this screenshot below:

In admin upload and showphoto options you should see the options you want
When viewing a photo in a category you should see a MAKE ALBUM COVER AND THIS WILL DO WHAT YOU WANT

Ok thanks ChuckS. Regarding the first question, I do see options for html and direct link but not for BBcode.
2nd question, (thanks its solved too)
I have another little problem too. I am so sorry I keep asking but I tried a lot to see if i could figure it out myself or by searching the forums, but it did not help.
My Photopost is located at: http://pakstop.com/pictures/
OK the problem is that when i make a parent top category, and then subcategories, then i do not see it in this pattern:
Like on my photpost i made a top category called "Pakistani Music Concerts" and inside that I have like 20 subcats now. But the problem is that the "Pakistani Music Concerts" is showing under top "cateogry" break. Where as i want it to display with a break and show cateogry with background color just like it the one in the pic i have posted (like PhotoPost community, is on a new line just like that)

Your site looks fine to me
It all depends on what your trying to do. Are you trying to show those top 3 topcats with the long bar and every one of those subcats on the main index?

i want a bar saying pakistani music concerts , just like Photopost community in that screenshot i posted above. So there shud be top bar saying Category with that members album, then under it there shud be a bar saying A, with subcats, then a B bar with B cats and so on.

Then in edit categories for your top cats set CONTAINS THUMBS TO NO. Then in index options set level of subcats to display to 1

Chuck, I did do this just now, but still its showing in bold now but its not moving completely to the left as i want (check the arrow )

In index options set show details for cats without thumbs to NO

Chucks, thanks a million. I got that fixed too now. My gallery is looking tight now :D, however when i now go to edit categories, i dont see the sub categories, so i cant edit or change subcat options like in the pic below:
like that Pakistani Concert pics have about 20 subcats+, before they were being listed under it, but not anymore.
PS=you can change the title of this thread form "2" to "X"

If you want to see the subcats hit the parents name
August 1st, 2007, 12:05 PM

Woops finally a sigh of relief hehe. I just want to say thanks for all the great help you have provided here
