Feature request - Photo album grouping should be more intelligent

Reported by dleffler | June 6th, 2012 @ 03:52 PM | in 2.0.8 (closed)

Currently grouped (categorized) photos are broken at the exact number of photos per page, but should probably be a bit more intuitive? Some ideas/new views?

  • 'default/showall' view should probably show all the photos (paged) as it has in the past, and to some extent should allow grouping by gallery (category) as it currently is
  • showall 'gallery' view should display first photo? and the link should take you to either a slideshow or page of all the photos (paged?) in that gallery (category)
  • perhaps a new showall 'showcase' view (similar to filedisplay?)

Most of these options would be selected in EITHER the module config OR the view config

Secondly (but more importantly), we'd need to add code which allows pulling up a page of photos by category.

FWIW, the difference between the default and galleries views is the set of records they process, e.g, default processes the $page->records, where galleries processes the $page->cats...however at this point of coding maturity, they often produce identical output.
