Thank you for your quick reply. I am aware that phones have phisically smaller screens but in terms of resolution they are sometimes quite capable.

I am aware that the gallery is fully responsive but in terms of thumbnails on the phone it is overdoing it.

Open the app with your phone photos and no matter if you have Android od iOS you have a set of 4-5 columns of CRISP thumbnails whch you can scroll down for as long as you reach the end.

I have just resized the thumbs to 100px and then to 85px and they look tiny on the desktop screen but on my phone (with enough resolution to accept 6-10 columns of thumbs) I get only an array of 2x2=4 big thumbs. I think there must be a way to change it so that it is more attractive and intuitive, just like photo galleries in phones.

Or open your instagram app on the phone and you will see three rows but scrollable...

This is what it looks like on my phone...

And this is what it looks like on my computer... Much better.

Can I edit the juicebox gallery so that I can have at least 3x5 rows of images? One thumbnail per page is horrible and users will not be happy. Not good if I mention that 70% of my viewers use phones and not desktop computers...

A mid-range phone like the discontinued Samsun Galaxy S7 (which I have) can display 4 or 5 columns of thumbnails easily because the screen resolution is high enough (2560x1440px). If I divide 1440px by 5, I get 288px. Substracting a little bit for spacing/padding and I can easily display 250px thumbnails without any problems. Meanwhile the gallery displays one thumbnail which is resized to around 40% of the screen. The thumbnail is set to 150px in the gallery settings.

Hmmm.... and I have another question...

My titles and descriptions do not want to show in all the photos, specifically those ones by the end of the list. I have an album with around 190 photos and I get the following messages when I save the page:

Notice: Undefined offset: 166
Notice: Undefined offset: 166

etc......

Oh and another thing....

Most of my viewers use phones. How to display thumbnails on a phone? Only one thumbnail displays and not rows and columns.

Is there a possibility to create a gallery with rows and columns of thumbnails and once you click on the thumbnail, the large image pops up?

I need my viewers to see an entire array of thumbnails (around 50= 5 columns, 10 rows) and enlarge only the ones they like. No pagination or thumbnails sliding on the bottom.

Thanks a lot for helping me.

I have modified the image dimensions to match the png file and it works like a charm. I have also added the following code:

$customA->setAttribute('target', '_blank');

It was written by means of deduction and it works OK, the link opens in a new window.

That's what I like about Showkase... Simple, static, not cluttered, but when you need a custom modification, there's someone to help you.

Thanks once again. Problem solved.

I am aware that messing with this part of the code could cause some trouble but so far I have tried the code you provided and it works flawlessly. I am willing to take risks. But this code is only for text links, which showkase already does without hacking. How should I modify the code to insert a small jpg or gif icon instead of a text link. The DOM stuff is too complicated for me and my wife says that I must have a facebook icon. I shouldn't argue with your wife, should I?

Thank you for the reply. I am thinking of a possible solution.

Whenever I add a page I press the 'publish' button. I assume that this enables some sort of script which creates all the static pages and menus. Is there a possibility to hack this script and force it to add a fixed html string after the menus are created. This way I would only need to modify a single php or js file and have the logo/link created automatically on all my pages...

Sounds reasonable but I don't know where to look for it. _showkase, _smarty, admin, _data??? there are many folders which I would have to browse so it's easier to ask and maybe you will point me to the right file.

I would like to add a link to my facebook fanpage in the form of an 'F' logo as the last menu item, for example:

HOME  ABOUT  GALLERY CONTACT 'F'

I guess that I will need to place a HTML string (a href, img etc...) which I know how to do but I would like to know which showkase file to open and where to edit.

I have a few suggestions:

1. The ability to select the order of subpages by gragging and dropping, just as it is done with selecting the order of images. This is much easier than typing numbers to all the galleries only to change their order.

2. A green dot/dots or a tick in the admin pages view which informs which pages are visible in nav and index pages.

So just to be sure... Which files exactly do I have to edit?

hmmm.. now I have realized that it doesn't work. For a while it was OK and now the menu displays all the digits.

But can you comment on the   inserted in the title? Is it OK and safe to use? So far the   string is not displayed on the website and on my FTP I see a folder like 'nbspportraits' so it seems to work.

I have found a workaround. So far it works and I hope it won't crash for some reason in the future.

instead of typing 'portraits' I type ' portraits' and the page gets accepted

I have a problem. I have two main pages 'analog' and digital'. Each page is supposed to have subpages like portraits, landscapes, people etc...

Once I have created all those subpages onder one of the main pages (like 'analog') I cannot use those names in the 'digital' main page.

Any way to solve this?
