*Note to admin: I`ve a valid licence but can`t seem to post in the "PPP Support Forum - How do I - forum".*
I`d like to achieve the following:
A user should be able to view all pictures of a given category uploaded during the last 3 days. Even if this category doesn`t contain any pics itself but it`s sub-categories do.
Parent category: Thermomix-Rezepte - Wunderkessel Fotogalerie
no possibility to set filter options or select pictures.
Child category: Thermomix: Suppen: vegetarisch/vegan - Wunderkessel Fotogalerie
only here I can select a timeframe and other options
But what if u user would like to see all the pics of the last x days for all sub-cats of the parent category?
I tried to use the search Suchen - Wunderkessel Fotogalerie
without entering anything in the keyword field but instead selecting a time frame and the desired parent category - there will be no result even if there definitely are pictures for the given timeframe in the sub-categories.
Another thing i noticed:
I open a popular category and limit the timeframe to only one day (sorttime =1) in the option bar at the bottom: Thermomix: Backen: Suesse Sachen - Wunderkessel Fotogalerie
then I click on the sort button.
What happens now is that the user is taken to the default quick-jump category selected in the row below. Instead the user should stay in the current category with the chosen filter options applied.
I have to use the browsers back-button to return to the desired category and find the sorttime of one day applied.
But if I now navigate to any other category where no pictures have been posted during the last day, I will have no pictures displayed and what`s even worse: I have no choice of changing the sorttime as the option bar is not showed when there is no result.
So I can only search for a category where pictures have been posted during the last 24 hours to be able to reset the time limit.
I`m absolutely sure that most of my visitors are confused/annoyed by this behaviour.
I first thought that I misconfigured something but then I checked the PPP demo gallery: A community photo gallery - PhotoPost Photo Gallery
and found out that it behaves exactly the same way.
So I really think this should be changed:
- Search (search.php) or filtering options should also deliver results from sub-categories
- When setting filtering options, the user should stay in the current category and not jump to a place he doesn`t want to be.
- The options bar at the bottom should also be displayed when there is no result
- Applied filtering settings maybe should only be set for the current category and not for the entire session
What are your thoughts on this?
all the best,
