Developer Description

Album View is a new front end to your browse pages. The addon will display a single thumbnail from each of your categories, along with the name and number of photos, which will link to the browse pages. Options include using either the most recent photo in the category or a random image from the category. The addon also works with and without the paged archive addon. Package includes a sample css file for getting the page to display properly.

See a Demo


  1. Add album_view.php to your addons directory and turn it on
  2. Add some css to display the thumbnails properly. I've included the css I'm using as a sample in the package.
  3. Add one of the Album View tags to one of your templates. I would suggest making a new template page for this tag - for instance I put the tag on album_template.html. Tags to use:

<ALBUMVIEW> - Shows newest photo for each category.

<ALBUMVIEWPAGED> - Same as above but for use with Paged Archive Addon.

<ALBUMVIEWRAND> - Shows random photo for each category.

<ALBUMVIEWPAGEDRAND> - Same as abover but for use with Paged Archive Addon.

Version History Version 1.2 - added class 'albumall' to 'All' Category so it can be hidden with css, for example: .albumall { display:none; }. Version 1.1 - added 'All' Category

    Would be so nice to have. But I can't follow the description to do that. Would need a step by step instruction for it. Maybe someone has the patience to do a fool proof step by step instruction.
