ROBERT M WORTH JR 13 days ago Works better than the other one I was having difficulty with because of the number of folders I have. It took many hours to determine how best to lay out those folders so that the expected results were achieved. Originally, they were stacked three deep and through trial and error, discovered the best way was to keep them the way they are now. Fewer clicks for those viewing this large album is one of the goals I was attempting to achieve. Your Gromit skin achieved this major attribute. Thank you for your creative genius. I also liked Matrix though I was having difficulty with some of the attributes. No big deal, however as I plan on using it for some other albums I'll be putting together.

My installed version of Gromit does not include the header area or gradient background option. How can I enable this?

Please post questions in the forum, where I can answer properly (with things like screenshots and links). Thanks.

I've just tried this skin and I'm immediately impressed. It was the only one of a few that I tested that produced error free W3C HTML 5. Lots of custom options and works well on PC and tablet. I like that in your comments input that a line break is recognised and I no longer need to use the line break 'br' tag. If only all albums are like this! Changing skins may mean that I would have to either add or delete the 'br' tag. Otherwise I'd get a double line break on none at all. This is where for consistency , it ought to be common for all skins. For this to happen it would need to be part of the jAlbum interface. Proper text editor input for bold and italics and spell checker thrown in would be nice too. Not your remit I know, but for David Ekholm and team.

Good lad Gromit. :-) Thanks to the custom option, I've managed to get my web site looking as I wanted it. The "Custom | Background Image" option is a small transparent PNG which allows the main page background to show through.

where can I find gromit skin for jalbum 11?


jGromit one year ago

On the left side of this page, click "Show All," and scroll down. Gromit version 11.0.0 is the last one that's compatible with jAlbum 11. You won't get any of the newer features, however, including responsiveness - I strongly suggest you upgrade to jAlbum 12.
