Auto Open Image When Only One Image in Folder

23 Jan 2011, 11:30

Enhancement Request:

Provide a mechanism so that when there is only one image in a folder that image is automatically opened when the folder is selected from the menu. I don't want my users to have to visit the thumbnail page when there is only one image in a folder.

Thanks
Alex

Good idea, we will implement this ...

In the meantime, you can easily fix this with folder parameters. From admin, in your folder with a single file, simply add the following to the folder-parameters field:
Code
settings.startmode=image

This feature is now added, and is pending for release with Imagevue X2.7 shortly.

Maybe this question of me has slipped....

Okay... now this is implemented in 2.7... What if I want to start with the one and only thumbnail in a folder?
The following setting does not overrule it:
Code
settings.startmode=thumbnails

May I ask why any visitor would want to access a thumbnails page with a single thumbnail?

I've got folders with thumbnails that follow a link when being clicked on...
In one of those folders there is only one thumbnail.... so, when it always opens as an image... it is not possible anymore to follow its specific link...

Ok, I'm not gonna dispute your argument, but I would question - If your menu-item contains a single item that works as a single link to another location, would it not be logical to set the menu item itself to link to your other location? Why would the visitor want to click the menu, then see a thumbnail, then click this to go to another location? Why not just link directly from the menu?

Would it be possible for the HTML site to also auto open images, vid, etc. if there is only one image in folder?

In this fine feature needed the ability of using special folder parameter (like in a filemods)
&textalign=over
when i use these folder parameters
settings.startmode=image&image.image.scale=fitstage
i want also the text title and description to be shown over this picture not above by default. Because when this picture opens the title remains above image and user have to zoom out to see the title. Setting "&textalign=over" like in filemods dont works.
