Jalbum 14 and Web locations....

Bonjour ,
ceci n'est pas une question mais plutôt une remarque.
Depuis plus de 10 ans j'utilise Jalbum pour mon site WEB.
Ma page d'index est construite avec Gromit qui seul permettait de faire un lien url sur une vignette.
l'introduction de la nouvelle technique 'web locations' ne me permet plus de le faire (ni ajout ni mise à jour).
je dois donc me résoudre à une mise à niveau générale....
seulement voilà , des liens à recréer il y en a plusieurs centaines !!!!
et donc des heures de travail pour moi....
Bonne année quand même à vous.

Your existing thumbnail links will still work, but yes, if you want to change them or add new links, you need to use web locations, instead.

Sorry about that, but once jAlbum included this possibility in the core program, the skin-specific method was deprecated. Having two similar, but not identical, ways of doing the same thing just isn't good software design.

BTW, why is your site using framesets, which are obsolete? This destroys the "responsive" characteristics of the skins you're using, including Gromit.

Oh yes for the framesets !!
j'ai cherché un bon moment pourquoi...:

c'est du à la redirection d'URL chez 1&1
(by 'frame' or by 'http' , frame was the default !)

Correction faite.
et pour le reste je me suis mise au travail.....
Merci à vous
Bonne journée

Yes, that is much better on a small display, like a phone. :)

Une petite remarque...
il serait plus judicieux de prendre l'image du dossier 'thumbs' (URL Image) et non du dossier 'slides' ?
cela me ferait gagner un peu de temps !!!!

The jAlbum core selects an image from the site specified as the URL of the web location. The skin has no control over that at all.

Attachment jalbum-thumbs.jpg (94.7 KB)
Bonjour ,

là je ne suis pas d'accord !
l'image est prise dans le dossier 'slides' il ne doit pas être bien difficile de la prendre dans le dossier 'thumbs' !!!!!! ce qui est plus intelligent pour construire un index ? non ?

je suis obligée de corriger manuellement (plus de 100 rien que pour mon dossier musique...)

Bonne journée

Most websites aren't created by jAlbum, and they don't have a slides folder or a thumbs folder. The routine is simply looking for a usable image on the page - large enough to use as a good quality thumbnail, and not a background image. It's not expecting to find a jAlbum-created page, so it can't be programmed to look for things that exist only on a jAlbum-created page.

In any case, the skin has nothing to do with this, so take it up with David.

And BTW, in the time you've spent posting complaints about this, you could have updated your albums, and you'd be finished with it.

I'm sorry my free skin software has caused so much trouble for you. Maybe you should use another skin.

OK , je comprends. merci de répondre si vite.

mon site est en entièrement fait avec Jalbum...(depuis 10 ans !)
j'ai fais le compte , j'ai 3 gros dossiers faits sur ce modèle (tous les autres non)
cela représente 330 liens url à mettre à niveau (car en plus maintenant je ne peux plus modifier les anciens)
j'en suis à peu près à la moitié et je peux envoyer des messages quand je fais une pause (ah ah)

tout refaire avec un autre skin ne me fera pas gagner du temps....et puis celui là est très bien .... si si.

You can leave the existing thumbnail links alone if you don't need to change them. Gromit will continue to use them. You don't have to convert all of them immediately.

When you add new links, use web locations. When you want to change an existing link, convert it to a web location. Otherwise, do nothing.
