Start a new Minimal project with at least one folder. Enter an album title and album description, and also enter a title and description for the folder. Make the album. On the folder's index page, the description is missing.
This is hitting all of my skins, as well.
Seems to have first started happening in jAlbum 29.0.2.
Credit for spotting this one goes to user jret - see the Other skins section post. I probably would have stumbled on it eventually, but it's one of those things that has worked correctly for so long, you don't really pay attention to it. In my little test projects, I rarely enter descriptions for folders.
And I was suspicious because, at the same time, I had switched from BeanShell scripting to Groovy scripting, which could have been the problem. It was tough to sort out. A quick check with Minimal, which is still using BeanShell, resolved it. Not my fault! Blame it on David!
David, there's something odd going on here. Whether descriptions/comments are displayed seems to be rather hit-or-miss.
In settings1, you can see the Album Title and Album Description entered. But in settings2, the description is missing.
In settings3, you can see the folder description entered. But in settings4, the description is missing.
Whether these elements are displayed in the album depends upon where they're entered! If they're entered in the right-hand panel, they don't show up in the album. If they're entered under General, and below the folder thumbnail, they do show up.
Jeff, the only problem I was able to reproduce was the title and description under folder properties not updating correctly when changing the corresponding fields under Settings->General, but I've fixed that in 29.1.9 now. As for the other inconsistencies, I can't reproduce.
