Empty category not displaying images in mosaic effect

Post by sage12 » 06 Dec 2018, 05:31

Hi,
I have an unusual problem which I can't seem to find an answer to in the forum; hopefully, I haven't missed anything in the forum. I use categories and subcategories for my albums. For example: Islands (main--no picts), island 1(sub), island 2(sub), island 3(sub). In Mosaic effects under Categories View >> Categories View Settings I've enabled Mosaic Effect, disabled Displaying Style under Categories View >> Categories View Settings >> Categories View - Legacy Settings and under Thumbnails >> Thumbnail Generation Settings I've enabled Additional Thumbnails >> Medium and small thumbnails and recreated all the thumbnails from scratch. I've disabled Display Avatar as Category Image under Category View >> Categories View Settings.

I get nice pictures for categories that have picts but nothing for empty categories that hold sub categories. When I disable Mosaic Effect under Categories View >> Categories View Settings voila. No problem. I get images from the sub categories.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm running 4.3.1 and 3.6.2 Joomla.

Thank you.

Hi,
yes that's right. Mosaic effect works only in categories view and only if the images are not located in subcategories.

Kind regards,
Benno
