Hi
BluPlusPlus Version 4.6.3
Jalbum Version 13.3 Java 1.8
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

Chaining works fine using Classic Aligned 2 skin, but not BluPlusPlus
All seeting seem the same.
Any ideas???

I have not enhanced BluPlusPlus to handle chained directories yet.

I will look into this soon.

I did a little testing while investigating a related, but different, problem. Chaining in BPP may not be explicitly supported, but bits and pieces of it actually work, which produces some strange behavior.

Clicking the "next" icon or using the keyboard arrows, you get no chaining across directories. But if you click on the image on the last slide page in the first directory, it actually does take you to the first slide page of the next directory. No way to get back, of course, other than to go "up and over" again.

And when you're on the last slide page in the first directory, the "next" icon isn't grayed out - it doesn't go anywhere, but it's blue. There's some similarly odd behavior of the icons when you're in the second (last) directory, as well, including some unexpected "cycling."

In short, don't use chained directories until ctwist has had a chance to tinker with it!

This is fixed in BluPlusPlus 4.7.

At the end of a folder, BPP sometimes wraps around to the beginning. This defeated chaining. I now disable wrapping if chained directories are enabled.
