Hello
I use classic aligned 3.1.5 and jalbum 15.1.3. on Mac OS 10.13.1
I don't get anymore the ring book folder design on my index pages.
This is very sad. Now I just get the favorite picture of the folder.
Too bad.
If anyone can help?
Sincerely
jGromit

I can at least confirm the problem, though I don't know what the solution is. I'll poke the skin developer to see if he can figure out what's happening.

For some reason, the GIF responsible for the ringbook design is not copied properly anymore.

A quick workaround:

Find jAlbum's skins directory and open the Classic Aligned 2 directory. In the sub-directory resopt there are files named ringbook1.gif, ringbook2.gif and so on. Those are the corresponding files required according to the checkmark at Classic Aligned 2's settings.

Copy the proper file from the resopt directory to the res directory of the skin, rename it to ringbook.gif and create an album.

Alternatively, if you have your album already created, you can as well copy the needed file to the generated gallery's res folder and rename it to ringbook.gif there.

This has been fixed in jAlbum 15.1.5

Perform a core update:

jAlbum > Tools > External Tools > jAlbum core update

Thank you for spotting this bug!

Copy the proper file from the resopt directory to the res directory of the skin, rename it to ringbook.gif and create an album.

Now that it's working properly again, don't forget to delete the ringbook.gif file from the skin's res directory, if you might want to use a different ringbook design in a future album; any ringbook.gif file inside the res directory will take precedence over the design checked in the skin's UI. That way you can easily create your own design, put it into res and the skin will use that one.
