Copy existing image folder as link

I got confused. Have huge gallery with many folders. I'd like to create folder "newest-galleries" with links to existing (latest) image folders. What I get is new folder and duplicates of existing images - with both "paste link" and "paste copy" option. Mirror or copy ... same result.
I'd like to have ONLY link to existing folder, no duplicates of images.

Example: Original folder with image: /golf-moments/index.html#img=MSO-190608-7615-Enhanced.jpg
After paste: /new-galleries/golf-moments/index.html#img=MSO-190608-7615-Enhanced.jpg

Try reading this page which shows how to reuse subfolders in jAlbum.

Very, very interesting. I did same thing BUT did take copy from inseide jAlbum. Now took copy from filesystem and it seems to work inside jAlbum. But ... on website it has now two different url's with same set of images and all images are double'd.

You will of course need to delete the first set of files you added. For anyone to offer further assistance you will need to provide a link to the website.

Deleting original is not ok. What I'd like to have is to have just link to new galleries I've added lately. Just link to original folder, nothing else.
Original URL: https://golf.soomre.com/niitvalja-golf/avavoistlus/2023/index.html
Newest gallery folder: https://golf.soomre.com/uued-galeriid/index.html
Reused folder from newest gallery folder: https://golf.soomre.com/uued-galeriid/2023/index.html
Link should link to existing folder, would be perfect.

I think you are talking about two different projects, not two folders within a single project. If that is the case then you can link to the folder to be used with a web location.

However, your album, https://golf.soomre.com/uued-galeriid/index.html, and others are promoting belbin.com and your professional association. For that you need to have a pro license, not a standard one. You should contact jAlbum support to get it updated.

These folders are from the same project I can't use just link. That's the issue - jAlbum creates two folders with two different urls with the same set if images.

Yes, I can now see it is a single project. If the method I linked to before does not work I don’t know what else to suggest.

I figured it out. You have to create new external link. Choose image from disk (jalbum folders) and OK
