Hi Everybody!

On my website

I want to make an update of the site without frames

Is there a manual?

Asking,
Peter

A menu on the left side is difficult for most skins I think, but a menu at the top is easy, see this FancyBox example album.

This is the problem. You want to make a new page that looks like the old one, but that's not possible with most jAlbum skins. Laza has a new skin in beta testing that includes a folder menu on the left, which might work.

But even most commercial sites are no longer using vertical menus, and it's because of mobile devices. On a phone, that kind of menu is often a disaster. It takes up too much space, can't adapt to the size of the display, and so on.

Looking at your site, I think I would redesign it as an "album of albums," and forget about the text menu on the side. Look at one of my skin demo pages, for example, like https://jgromit.com/gromit/index.html. There are nine albums there - the top level is an "album of albums," created with jAlbum. It works on a display of almost any size, and is HTML5 compliant. Each of the nine albums has a link back to the home page.
