The diagrams in the settings panels in Tiger do a pretty good job of showing what's what.
The header is the entire top of the index page, above the thumbnails.
The hero is the image that's used within the header (in most other skins, it's called a theme image, which is what jAlbum calls them internally).
The lightbox is the popup that appears when you click on an image thumbnail. It's a new "layer," on top of the index page. Here's an example that might be clearer, since the index page isn't completely dimmed out in this case - click on a thumbnail:
Header is the topmost part of the page. Usually contains the top navigation, the search box and the site logo.
The theme image is the selected image which represents the album. It's a jAlbum functionality.
The hero - comes from Wordpress - is a full screen (or large) section with a large image in background containing the title and page description too. Hero image - when used - is the same as theme image.
Now this can be even more unclear when used in a full-screen skin, e.g. Projector, where I named the hero as "Cover page" to describe its functionality better.
I also have video's on Youtube which I used to play via the embedded code in the external link of a photo. Can I do now the same with a Web location? I tried, got it to work but only full size, not in a nice small box like it was when embedding it in a photo. I also used the frame width of the code below to put it into the Box size in JAlbum.
I don't get it to work properly, only full size and not like when embedding it into a photo.
Or should I use photo's again when I want to embed a video on Youtube?
Second question is:
I want to store my main photo page (start page) in a separate folder in the root (that is also something JAlbum recommends when uploading for the first time).
Then what should I put in the root to re-direct always to the main photo page when you enter just my domain in the browser? It's looking for an index file.
OK, thanks. I know that I should use the External link box, but that box is part of a Web location or a photo. When I use the External link box of the photo, it works well, but when I use the External link box of the Web location the video is shown full size on the screen (I have a 32 inch, and that's way to big for a 1280x720 movie to play on).
So, I assume, for a video, I use the External link box of a photo (like I used to do)?
Secondly, when I do that I have the problem that the Web Location with photo's is not ordered next to the Photo with the external link to the video. These are ordered differently in de ordering part of the Sections.
Because I want to have everyting ordered chronologically...can I get these 2 next to each other?
Tiger groups items based on their use. Those link to external sites are treated as folders, and those having some content from an external site that supposed to be displayed in the lightbox are treated as normal images (thumbs). I believe mixing them would bring more confusion.
OK, thx Laza, clear. It's a pity, In my situation I would like to have them next to each other. Photo's and film of the same travel, next to each other.
But that's exactly what you have. It doesn't matter whether the web locations are treated as folders or as images.
You have an album for Brazil, an album for Morocco, and an album for Tasmania. You're now creating an "album of albums," with three thumbnails - one for each destination. Those are all web locations, and you can put them in any order you like.
The Brazil album consists of JPG's, MP4's, and YouTube videos. Those are all treated as images, and you can put them in any order you like.
