    Okay, I've tried what I found in the forum about removing the right margin from .slides li in gallery.css and that sort of helped. On this page:

    Why won't the albums display properly in three rows of 5, 5 and 1? They're looking just perfect on the images page:

    Please advise. I'm so close to getting this right.

    Never mind - suddenly it seems to be working okay...

    .thumbnail img {
    padding: 5px;
    text-align: center;
    margin: 4px; // start by taking this out
    background: #FFF;
    border-width: 1px;
    border-color: #778899;

    Remember to normalize the padding & margins for the hover states, or else is does really (read: REALLY) funny things in compliant browsers. Try it in Firefox.


    Edit: Completely missed second post.

    Hi Debbie,

    I'm interested in the customization you've done in your view below:

    I would like to accomplish the same with an dog rescue site below:

    The large image would be displayed above, or below, the thumbnails as you have done. I am not a PHP developer and mostly stumble through the mods.

    Can you point me to the code modifications that you used?

    All help appreciated.

    Search for thumbnail navigation or "Plugger" in the forums. A very kind soul has made a very simple Plogger plugin (ie. "Plugger"), which is displayed on Debbie's site.

    Thanks Derek.

    Now, is there a way to display a comment for the entire album without displaying the customer input field?

    I'm using this to display adoptable dogs and would like to show the dogs in an album with a story beneath the thumbsnails.

    Thanks again for the previous help.

    Damn, Beta3 has built in long picture descriptions that would be perfect for that! Alas, you'll have to wait =)

    So you want to use the comments as a picture description area without allowing other people to comment? Pretty easy, just make the the first comment on the image as normal. Then, proceed to the admin "manage tab", navigate to the picture in question, click "edit", uncheck "allow comments" and hit "update". The comment form will dissapear and your comment will remain.

    Hi again,

    This method works, but I have to include the same Comments for each picture in the album. I would like a way to display the pictures plus thumbnail with only on Comment (or Story) for the particular dog.

    My intention is to turn the administration of the adoptables over to the people who run the rescue group. They are not computer savvy so I want this to be as simple as possible.
