All new albums are hidden and Mobile settings are not disabled.

As you can see on my albums page and the attached screen-shot, all test albums I added today are hidden, show no Album image and the Mobile settings are not disabled, although responsive skins are used. I upload via jAlbum with public privacy settings, see screen-shot.

If I click the SS4Website thumbnail, I get no reaction, but if you know the link, you can open the album: https://andrewolff.jalbum.net/SS4WebSite/

I have this behavior already several months. The other albums on my profile page have been corrected manualy.

How can I prevent this problem?

Anders, is this another https issue?
How far are you with your study?

A suggestion:
Your albums page has dead links, so you might want to go through all of your 27 pages and delete those thumbnails that have broken links. For example, Three thumbnails with the same image and description ‘Fietstocht rond Heino’ but only the last one is working.

Please explain how dead links can influence the propperties of new albums.

If you're not signed in to the client your albums won't be added properly to your jalbum profile. But the server will eventually discover them and add them as hidden albums.

See here, that album is not hidden, it has been deleted and it is still on my albums page.

I thought this thread was about new albums that appear as hidden albums.

But, if you're not signed in in the client when adding or removing albums you profile page won't be updated properly.

But if the server sees that the album of a link does not exist, why does he not remove that link?

"He" hasn't been told to do so... We haven't seen the need to implement that.

I have now fixed a few https-related bugs. When uploading an album with https it wasn't added by the client to your profile page, and if you had an https album already added a second hidden copy with http was eventually added. So, I hope using https should work better now.

https should also be used as default for both your profile page and the albums uploaded here.

Thanks for your help.

I think it goes better now, I will monitor this in the comming days.

One question: I see only new albums at the top of the albums page, why not also the updated albums?

And please make a tool whichs checks at regular times all links on the album page and remove the link if the corresponding link no longer exists.

The star-thumbnail is showing new albums, in case the sort order of the albums is alphabetical, so new albums don't appear on the first page.

For updated albums you probably already know where the album is in your list, so the need for it is less.

(Only you (and admins) see these stars. They are not visible to anyone else.)

Is there also creation/update date sort order?
