View Full Version : Category Image
December 3rd, 2009, 02:50 PM
We have decided to move from vBGallery to PhotoPost. We wanted to know if there is a built-in way in PhotoPost to assign and image/icon to a category like in vBGallery, or if we have to customize templates to do so.
Please note that I do not want to use an image thumbnail, but actually setup a category image as you can do in vBGallery.

In Photopost you can tag an image to be used as a catavatar or make it be the first uploaded image in a category.

Hello, that is exactly what I said we did not want to do.
I need to write a cusotm importer to import the graphics from vBGallery, since we have 2000 categories, more or less, and doing it in this method takes longer.

I can only tell you how it works ;)
We have an importer to import categories and photos from vbgallery to photopost pro already so not sure why you need to write some custom importer.

Because I wanted to import the category images in vBGallery, which are setup in a different way - from the category manager. No problem, we coded the thing ourselves.

Not a problem thats why the code is not encrypted so people can do that
