Renaming "Slides"

for SEO sake, how can the mandatory folder "slides" be renamed to any custom name while jalbum is making the album? so we put in a custom work in the menu and forget about it?

for instance I like to call it "photographer" so google understands what the sub-folders are about...."slides" means nothing and gets lost in the seo game.

Read the section on 'Naming' at http://jalbum.net/help/en/jAlbum/Settings/Advanced
Try it on a small test album, if you really want to experiment.

thanks, does this mean that:

"newSlideDirectoryName"

whatever name I put inside the quotes will replace the "slides" directory"

setAccessibility(true);


engine.slideDirectory="newSlideDirectoryName";
engine.closeupDirectory="newSlideDirectoryName";

Yes, that is correct. Some skins don't pull these variable names, they just use text instead, that is why you always need to test it first as it can break an album.

It will not, both skin relies on a single slide directory name, so you can change it globally, but you can't change it per folder.
