Can someone give me a hand in organizing my Category section?
Hey Folks (btw LOVE the new look of the forum, nice and light)...
Anyhoo... can someone help me make sense of my photoblog? It's a total mess :(- don't know where to start and how to structure it...
Can someone suggest me how many thumbnails i should have per page...? Also if you know any cool mods let me know.
And one last questions... is it possible to put some kind of a Java (navigation for the images?) because I dont want my whole page to reload just the image and the content along with the image...
Let me know.
ps: great job on the forum PixelPost team ;)
The "Browse Page" is very large. With all thumbs (which is the default loading) it has about 5 MB and the loading time is unacceptable long (even with a fast connection).
The thumbs are too big (picture size and file size).
Try to use a standard size and use for example 12cropImage addon to define the section of the pic that you want to show in your thumb (sometimes the thumbs in your gallery are a bit unexact).
The last thing I would do, is limiting the total number of thumbs per page.
I'm a beginner in Pixelpost ... sorry for these trivial tips, but that's the way I would start.
In order to break the archive into pages, you need to use the Paged Archive addon. Go to the admin addons page and change the number of thumbs per page to 28.
Now you need to change your link to your browse page. Instead of index.php?x=browse, it needs to be index.php?x=browse&pagenum=1. To do that, open both the image_template.html and browse_template.html files and find the navigation links section. You will replace <a href="<SITE_BROWSELINK>" title="Gallery">Gallery</a> with <a href="<SITE_BROWSELINK_PAGED>" title="Gallery">Gallery</a>.
Once that's done, you need to change/add some tags on your browse_template.html file.
- Replace <THUMBNAILS> with <THUMBNAILS_WHOLE_PAGED>. This will limit the number of thumbs on each page to the 28 that you entered in the box in the Paged Archive addon.
- Then, in a div below the thumbnails, you need to add the following tag for the page numbers: <THUMBNAILS_PAGES_LINKS>
You'll also need to change the tag for the categories drop-down box from <BROWSE_CATEGORIES> to <BROWSE_CATEGORIES_PAGED>.
That should get your Gallery page all spiffied up.
As far as other cool addons, you'll need to check out the Extend section and see what new addons are have been released.
One last question - have you upgraded your blog to the latest version of PP (1.7.1) or are you running an earlier version?
found this when I was trying to get the paged archive to work. I have one question though. All pictures in the different categories are shown in the right order BUT when showing "all" the latest picture is last in order ascending instead of descending. Can anyone help me with that??
Other than that everything is ok and chmod is ok just this little problem.
