If this is a cat without thumbnails Nope there is not a way.
It is pretty clear if you set a cat to no thumbs that there is no space for a cat avatar at least while drinking my coffee here this morning I am looking at things right The nicest looking way to do things is to make sure you have show counts for cats without thumbs to NO so the tdnothumbs class spans the whole cats table this makes a nice clear definer of category sections
There is a way to force this, you can set the 'thumbnail' field to the photo id of the item you want as an avatar for that cateogry; I just havent thought of an easy way to make this an option (except for a text box input on the Edit Category page).
Please do not PM me for support or sales questions. Thank you for your understanding.

ok, that works, (modified the categories.tmpl file) see the attached photos showing the avatars with the categories collapsed and categories expanded.

On the category editor dialog Thumbnail for Main Index section you can present a list of available thumbnails from the next sublevel of subcategories index thumbs, either using radiobuttons with images next to them or a dropdown list. Add a none entry of course.
Think I'll hack this up and see how that looks/works. Should be pretty easy to do and doesn't involve any database changes.
Problem with that is how do you choose a picture thumbnail if there isn't any.
Could have a default image to use for all categories where you haven't chosen a category thumbnail yet.
My above scheme will allow the user to choose a category thumbnail based upon the thumbs for the categories one level lower.
Actually it is possible to to upload to a category that does not have any images, tag it then hide it. (so in affect it still doesn't have any images - although the image count is out by one). However it would be nice to be able to do the following...
1) In the categories config page, under thumbnail - allow an image number to be inserted - this would enable us to re-use one image multiple times, without uploading it to different categories.
2) Enable a thumbnail image to be uploaded (maybe to My Gallery) without it displaying as an image on the site, and then being allocated to one or more categories as a thumnail image - useful again when you just want thumbnails on categories, without then appearing as images.
In any event, I think the thumbnails are one of the best features in PP now - simple but effective.
I need help to setup the categories thumnails. I am not a programmer and this version of photopost is new to me , i searched in the forums but i did not find the solution yet and this one here doesn't help me either since i do not understand about changing tmpl files without a copy and paste.
I looked at the tmpl file and compare with the original in the package of photopost and other tmpl file from other site and is no differences at all, so why that error ??
I think it comes all cause the imagemagick and mogrify. I wanted in the beginning to setup that option but i let it down , was to complicated for me. So i choose G2, i upload a photo as a test, the one you see on the gallerie, and it uploaded it well , and make the thumnails well either except for the cats.
What i can do ???
Please be gentil, i really don't understand nothing at programming, at most i can copy and paste what you tell me do, but is the maximum i can understand.
