Album covers

 

Cover Types

Basically there are 3 types of album covers: Standard, Long Description and Image Factory.
They mainly differ in lay-out.
The default cover type to be used in your site can be set in Table IV-D6: Cover type.
For individual albums you can set a different cover type on the albums admin page.

You can configure a lot of layout features, like size and position of the cover image, height of the cover, link type from the cover image and much more in Table I-D, Table II-E and Table IV-D.

Columns

If you want to display the covers in multiple columns, you can set the maximum width for a cover in Table I-D1: Max cover width. If done so, wppa will compute how many covers will fit on a row.
On responsive themes, this number will be dynamicly adjusted if needed.

If you run on a responsive theme and you want the albums to be displayed in multiple columns, select the album type you want with the addition mcr. Mcr stand for 'Multi Column Responsive'.
If the display consists out of one album cover only, the max coverwidth restriction is ignored, the cover will fill the whole available width on the page (unless your shortcode contains a size="..." specification).

Examples

All examples on this page use 'mcr' cover types.

Displaying single covers

The shortcode:
[wppa type="cover" album="..."] displays the cover of the given album(s). If you want to display one or only a few covers, use this type of shortcode.

If you want to display the covers of all sub-albums of a certain parent album, use the shortcode:
[wppa type="covers" album="..."]

The album specification can be one of the following:

  • A positive integer number, being the id of an album
  • A $-sign followed by an album name. Note: the name is case sensitive and also language sensitive if you use qTranslate!
  • An enumeration and/or range of album numbers. An enumeration is a sequence of numbers seperated by single dots: e.g. 3.7.12.8.24 A range is a number, two dots followed by anothe number: e.g. 3..7 Both methods can be combined: e.g. 3..7.12.56.34..36

This example shows the covers of albums 2, 35 and 50.
[wppa type="cover" album="2.35.50"]
