Picture exif data

In my album I show(ed) the exif metadata from my pictures. I notice when generating an album with my current version of jAlbum the metadata is incomplete. Only the first tag is being shown, and only a portion of the information is show for long tags.
Below is an example of the meta information extracted from the .html file in the slides folder:
data-meta="Fotograaf Jan Berends (janberends@tveld-an"

The email address has been cut off after the '-an' and other information in not present. If I remove the Photographer label from the Foto Data tab (in the Turtle skin) the next exif item is being shown. For example:
data-meta="Date/Time 2017:01:08 11:36:51"

This tag shows the complete information. Always only one item is included in the exif info in the .html file. Is anybody else experiencing this? Could it be a misconfiguration or is it an omission in the software?

Thanks for your advice.

I use the following versions:
jAlbum 14.1.10
Turtle skin 5.6.3
MacOS 10.13 GM

What is the 'other information' that is missing, can you give a link to the album?

Th other information I mentioned is the rest of the email address (nen.nl, which maks the complete domain name 'tveld-annen.nl') and all other tags from the picture exif information.
my album can be found on: http://www.jberends.nl/fotoalbum

For the slide page http://www.jberends.nl/fotoalbum/2017/Vogels/slides/_MG_7530.html
I can see in the head section
<meta name="author" content="Jan Berends (janberends@tveld-annen.nl)">

In the body I can see
<div class="main image" style="width:2048px;height:1365px;">
<a href="../_MG_7530.jpg">
  <img  src="_MG_7530.jpg" data-modified="0" data-size="11,79 MB" 
   data-link="../_MG_7530.jpg" data-isoriginal="true" data-isimage="true" 
   data-width="2048" data-height="1365" 
   data-meta="<b>Fotograaf</b> Jan Berends (janberends@tveld-an">
</a>


So the metadata is being seen in its entirety by jAlbum and it looks like a Turtle skin issue. I'll move this to the Turtle skin forum.

Just to be sure, I created a new (local) album with an other skin. In this 'test' album the exif information is shown as expected. I attached a screenshot to show this...

That shows the truncated metadata too, what skin did you use?

I used Tiger as a skin. I also noticed the truncated item, but the other items shown here are not being show in the Turtle skin.

Tiger is based on Turtle, it shares much of the code.

Problem solved. I made the skin for my test album also Turtle... And guess what, the exif info was back. Looking at the differences in settings I noticed a difference in the photo data list (the listing of the exif items). In my original album the items were listed one on a line and in the testalbum they were listed separated bij a '|'. Copied those settings to my original album, recreated it and it was fixed.
How and why the original listing was messed up? I really don't know.

RobM thanks for looking into it and sorry for 'wasting' your time....

I don't see the META tag now. These Exif tags are coming from the photos itself, I suspect - so you need to look for the wrong metadata in the JPG files. Right-click the thumbnail and "List metadata". Or attach one of those photos here.

Tiger is using a bit better metadata extractor, and its default template has more fields by default.

"|" means "or" in the metadata template: the skin lists only the first found element.
