I see from this post that there are a few people that want to have nested albums rather than the default.
Unfortunately for me, I am not skilled enough in PHP or WordPress to resolve this myself. Is there anyone out there that will provide the altered page that will display albums as a nest hierarchy rather than showing all images from all lower nodes?October 18, 2012 at 12:10 am#50423
this currently can be done using custom templates or php, we will try to add and option on feature releaseOctober 20, 2012 at 8:15 pm#50453
i have been doing some reading and learning, and I want to try this Myself. I just need some help getting started. Hope someone doesn’t mind asking these questions.
What file controls The Loop for rendering images? Is it Taxonomy-ims_album.php?
Is it the same. Loop for all levels of the album hierarchy?
what is the differentiation in the loop from an album and an imageOctober 22, 2012 at 12:15 am#50463
yes, you can use the “Taxonomy-ims_album.php” as a guide, for more information in how to use the WordPress loops take a look at this linksOctober 22, 2012 at 4:22 pm#50471
Hax, thanks for the reply and the links. Yes I found this material over the weekend, which is why I want to see if I can work it out (not sure if that is realistic, but I will give it a go).
However this doesn’t really answer my questions. What I really want to know is “which file do I edit in order to change the default way The Loop is executed?” If I change the Taxonomy-ims_album.php and leave it in its default location, will that over-ride the default? Or is there something else I need to do?October 23, 2012 at 1:12 am#50482
you need to move the file “taxonomy-ims_album.php” to your theme’s folder (or child theme is preferred ), and make the modifications there, also in the image store settings make sure your album template is set up to use the default template.
For the most part all you will have to modify in the file is html around the loop; things like header, footer, sidebar etc.February 6, 2013 at 7:40 pm#52119
