Hi,
i want to change the measurements of folder image appearance. Thus resize them (not the image itself, this i know how to change) .
I find them somewhat to big for a non photography site.
Possible or did i not found it where to change? :-)

At Tiger > Sections > Folder > Folder columns, choose a larger number, like 4 or 5. That will make the folder thumbnails smaller.

Hi,

I also find that folder images are too big compared to thumbnails size, giving not so pretty pages.

I agree that I can change the number of folders columns. But even with 5 columns, I find the folders images too big. I think than using a bigger numbers of columns will do the job, but the maximum number is limited to 5 columns :-(

Why can't we use more columns ?

In my view, a folder is a more important element of a page than a thumbnail of an image. This is why folders have larger titles and slightly larger thumbnails too in Tiger skin. 5 columns of folders look already very crowded, that's why I set this as a limit. (The ideal is around 3 columns in my opinion.)

I do not totally agree with you. IMO, we already have the folder's title and images count to make the folder icon important.

Anyway, is it possible to have more than 5 columns, maybe by modifying a config file?

Using an H3 level title for an element that is cca. 150px wide is ugly in my opinion.

Open common.css in skin directory (Ctrl-Shift-S) with a text editor, and insert this in the second line:
folderColumns = 6;

(You'll have to redo this after every skin update.)

In the new 34.2 version it doesn't seem to work or I am doing something wrong...

<%-- Normalize: reset CSS --%>
folderColumns = 6;
<ja:include page="css/normalize.css" />

<% /* Initializing variables for CSS files */

/*******************************
* Constants
*/

var backgroundLuminosity = getLuminosity(backgroundColor),
boxBackgroundAlpha = getAlpha(boxBackgroundColor),
topmenuAlpha = getAlpha(topmenuColor),
thumbAspectRatio = maxThumbHeight / maxThumbWidth;

hasBoxBgImage = 'Brushed,Cork,Exhibition,Shine,Techno'.indexOf(styleName) >= 0;

/*******************************
* Main layout
*/

Insert the line within the <% %> part, not above! E.g. above the var backgroundLuminosity line.

And - I don't know if this tip has ever worked - the real variable is folderCols.
	folderCols = 6;
	var backgroundLuminosity = getLuminosity(backgroundColor),
		boxBackgroundAlpha = getAlpha(boxBackgroundColor),
	:
