View Full Version : Category sort order
November 10th, 2008, 09:11 PM
The default sort order works fine when set via the category in gallery mode. If I change this to contest mode, there is no controls over the sort order, and no apparent order when viewing this category, but the real problem is the previous and next links, they seem very random and do not allow the member to view all photos within that category.
Any advice on this would be appreciated.

the next prev photos should have nothing to do with a cat sort order but I can tell you that on contest mode the sort is locked to the rating sort.

The next prev are random, and does not always allow you to view every photo in that category.
Is there a reason why it would do that in contest mode?

The next previous depend on information sent to them in links. They are totally different throughout the program depending on the links presented.
I really cant say without seeing the links your getting to go to a photo but for example if your site link to the photo is simply showphoto.php?photo=12 then thats totally random next previous links. But for example if you hit a photo going through the members gallery it passes a userid variable and then that affects the next prev thumbs. See the point.
