Gallery Layout - links
I've been trying to figure out how to use the thumbnail gallery layout. My problem is this;
Let's say I have this category tree:
-Level 1 CatA
--Level 2 cat_a1
--Level 2 cat_a2
-Level 1 CatB
--Level 2 cat_b1
--Level 2 cat_b2
which is quite simple, just 4 categories, grouped into 2 more generic categories. Now, when useing the gallery layout for the index page, I get 2 thumbnails, each for every level1 category. Under the thumbs, there are the NAMES of the level 1 categories. If I click that, it takes me to another index page, which now has thumbnails for the level 2 categories of that Cat --- which is correct.
But if I click on the thumbnail, I get linked inside that level2 subcategory , where the thumbnail belonged to - which is quite confusing.
I want to have the same link in the thumbnail also - is this possible?
In the code, I see for the thumbnail this code:
The gallery layout only shows the parent cats not child cats so if you only have 2 true parent cats thats all your gonna get. The catlink will take you to the script to see subcats and the thumbnail is simply the latest photo from any subcat beneath the parent. In your scenerio and setup I always suggest using the forum style layout.
Chuck I only need the parent cats, so no problem there. My problem is the thumbnail link.
From your answer I understand that there is no way to change the link for the thumbnail, is this correct?
If so, is there a way to disable the thumbnail link completely? It will definately make my members confused.
Only way to change the thumbnail link would essentially be edit your code in some fashion. The file is pp-inc.php but cant not really something I have ever looked at. The link etc is all auto generated in functions so your need to determine what the right way to rehack things would be without interfering with the rest of the program.
But the thumbnail and its link is globally defined in Photopost right? So if I changed it it would reflect all the thumbnails and their links, is this correct?
Correct this is why I said you would need to modify your functions to do something different. This would be considered code modification and not product support.
Thankyou Chuck for your fast response. :)
Not a problem
Yup, that's what I did, I switched back to forum display.
Thankyou once again for your fast support, as always.
no problem enjoy your evening.
