Install skin

You can also install the skin by unzipping this file into the skin folder.

Min. jAlbum version
11.6.17
Description

IMPORTANT: BEFORE any skin update save the current album! AFTER a skin update you'll have to reopen the current album or reload the skin with CTRL-R before "Make" in order the new version loaded completely. Also make sure to reprocess all the subfolders: read the "NEW SKIN VERSIONS" paragraph below!

TURTLE is an HTML5 / CSS3 dynamic album template with transition effects, slideshow, map, shopping cart, videos, background music, full site navigation and many more. Works on touch devices too. Has 27 separate styles plus tons of customization options.

There are 2 basic operation modes for Turtle: "Single page" and "Separate slide page" mode. Use the "Settings / Pages / Make slides" to select.

In SINGLE PAGE MODE all the images are placed on the same html page, and the skin replaces them dynamically as you navigate through the album. In this mode you can have continuous background music, smooth transition effects, and lower server load.

In the SEPARATE SLIDE PAGES MODE your album will show every image on a separate html page, which enables Facebook or other social sites to Like, comment and share the images separately and search engines can find your photos easier as well. It will not allow as smooth transitions as single, no background music and results in almost doubled server load.

If you plan to add MORE THAN 500 photos in a single folder I'd suggest to use the separate slide pages mode to avoid memory leak with less robustly written browsers.

About the two modes please refer to: http://lazaworx.com/static/help/features/dynamic-vs-separate-mode.html

You can add CUSTOM PAGES too: right-click -> New page -> Empty or from template: About, Contact, Sitemap.

To choose the HEADER IMAGE (a.k.a theme image) use the right-click -> "Use as folder thumbnail" menu. You can exlude this photo from the album at the same time with right-click -> "Exlcude".

NEW SKIN VERSIONS are not guaranteed to be backwards compatible with older versions, thus after a skin upgrade you'll need to regenerate the whole album with "Settings / Advanced / Process subdirectories" = ON and "Process only updated subdirectories" = OFF! This will not reprocess all the JPG's, only the HTML pages, which is a lot faster, particularly in single page mode.

SEARCH feature also needs reprocessing all the subfolders (see above!) every time.

In order the FACEBOOK LIKE, share, comment and similar social functions work properly you need to specify the Upload Path in "Settings / Turtle / Advanced / Upload path" before album Make as absolute URL to album base. (Normally you can upload the album to any site after the album is made but these sites require this information within the album, which can't be changed later.) Turtle can also sniff out the proper upload path, but only after the album has been uploaded once.

Your comments are welcome - write a comment on the right, but PLEASE POST BUG REPORTS, feature requests IN THE TURTLE FORUM, see below.

Thanks,
Laza

Hi, My PC (windows 10) is touch screen. Lenovo. I make my albums in Turtle skin but in Chrome (only in this browser) it doesn´t let the click for the next photo. Only works with touch. I repeat: just in chrome. I have the last upgrade 13.3. In the last versions it had no problem. Please help me. You can see it here: http://www.pisosmaple.com/web/classen.html and this was made with other version: http://www.pisosmaple.com/web/kaindl.html Thanks a lot.

When touch is available swiping left and right is the only method to get to the previous/next pictures.

I am currently working on the issue. Chrome previously has emulated the touch events on touch monitors when using the mouse, but recently they are handling them completely separately. (Which is the proper behavior in my opinion, even though it broke my code.)

Hello, I´m trying to put a filter (a logo) to mark my pictures (the logo is in JPG or PNG) but it doesn´t work, doesn´t appear. Help please.

Use the "Settings / Effects / Logotype" filter. If jAlbum doesn't apply the logo after "Make album" you might want to check if the "Settings / Advanced / Process subdirectories" is ON and "Process only updated subdirectories" is OFF.

No, in Turtle you can't have a collage instead of thumbs. Check out Clang or Hydrogen skins for such layouts.

No matter what's the reason for the skipped preview - I've ordered an Google API Key last night and now it's all okay. Thanks again for attention!

My Site is still in development and what I told you is only happening on the local version of the site. I've uploaded a small test version on my webspace and with this one all is okay. I'm hosting another small project on anther server based on the chameleon skin and it also works fine. What's now happening occurs only, when i start the index.html from disk. And I can assure you, i'm far away from 25000 downloads! I will wait till tomorrow - perhaps it's a problem concerning my provider 1&1?

Is this so important that the local preview works with Google Maps? If this affects only the local preview it should nothing to do with your provider then.
