Gallery3:Modules:about this album

From Gallery Codex

About this album

Adds a sidebar block of useful information about the album. It only displays for album pages.


In Gallery 3 the definition of "metadata" that a theme can display, for example in an overlay, is limited. This is a different approach.
This module is designed so that you should only need one module in the sidebar to show all relevant information about the current album.

"About this album" displays the following fields:

Child albums (hidden if there are none)

Number of images
Views (on images therein, not on albums, which is different to the metadata overlay on the thumb)
Album description (hidden if blank)

Tags (of the photos in the album, not of the album itself; hidden if all the thumbs are of child albums)

"About this album" displays in a modified form on the root page and is titled "About this site"

If you want different or more fields, the module is easy to modify.
