First, let me say thank you, for jalbum and the iPhone app. I rarely if ever take the time to post in forums, but find your program and app so useful and close to ideal that I felt the need to post.
With that said, is there any plan to add folders to the iPhone app? I have several albums that are rather large in size (> 500 images) and it would be great if they showed up, like they do on my web site, in nested folders. Instead it seems that all nested folders are "flattened" when you view an album on the iphone app.
Some may prefer to view it as is, so maybe have the option to view albums flat or nested? Either way, great job with the program and app. Keep it coming!
Yes, we are planning on implementing "true" folder support in the next major update in about a month. This flat view was just a quick solution to make folders visible at all, but it's not working good with very large albums.
You won't be able to create folders on your iPhone, but you will see and navigate using the folders you have created for your albums with the Jalbum desktop application. We will probably not make the folder view optional, but instead always show the album as the creator intended.
(There is an update of the app coming within the next few days, but that won't have the folder view.)
The iOS app supports viewing of albums with folders since probably six months. But you must create those albums using the jAlbum desktop application. In our online web album creator and iOS app you can't create folders and we have no plans on implementing that.
Probably I'm in wrong but I've create all my albums using the desktop application and upload it all on Jalbum online. So from Iphone (IOS 4.3.1) I cannot see the folders. For example under sterno (my username) you can see album Kappenabzeichen and it is only with folders, on a desktop it is possible to see all folders and from the Iphone app I cannot see the folders.
Do you have an example album where I can see the folders on the Iphone app ?
Where is my mistake ?
Really I've tried all...I've seen some album with folder on Iphone App, some using Simplicity skin, some use Bananaalbum skin, some use Turtle skin. Really is not clear where is my error, I've try all parameters, but no folders on my Iphone app
There is no album.rss-file in that album. If you try to access the album.rss a virtual album.rss is generated. This virtual file can't handle folders. It looks at the images on disk and generate one, but since all sorts of folders are on disk it doesn't try to be clever and figure out which ones are album-folders, so it simply skips all folders.
You enable the album.rss file at Album Settings->Advanced->Metadata->Generate Media RSS feed.
Thnaks Anca; This answers my post on another one in this forum.
I just realized that for whatever reason some times the rss was ticked others none and having done it I can see all my albums on my iPhone.
Great and congratulations for your wonderful job!
