feature request - preview pic for each category

Post by pamelaahelmerr » 10 Jun 2021, 04:36

Hello there,
I am using phoca gallery for one of my sites - and it's great!

It would be nice if there was a preview picture (thumbnail) for each category at the "main" phoca page. It could be a random picture or a user-selected picture.

This really encourages people to click on each category.

Hi,
This is already possible now.
Go to: Backend --> Components --> Phoca Gallery --> Options --> Categories View --> Image Size=(set:) Medium
And: Backend --> Components --> Phoca Gallery --> Options --> Category View --> Display Image Instead Of Folder Icon=Yes

Then go to each category and set a picture:
Backend --> Components --> Phoca Gallery --> Categories --> General Options --> Image=(Choose an Imge)

If you don't set an image the first image in each category will be displayed as category image.

Should look like ths example.

Kind regards,
Benno
