This module allows you to set a default sort order for newly-created albums. I specifically wrote this because I wanted all user-created albums to be sorted by Date Captured instead of Date Uploaded since users don't always upload photos in order. However, it does allow you to set it to whatever sort column and order you wish.
Is there any way to sort by Date Captured > Ascending > FOLDERS FIRST?
Not as an option in G3. But, I did it with the attached patch.
where do you copy/paste that patch so that albums get sorted as well? what filename and where? thanks.
It's a diff -- you apply it with the program "patch". For example, while in the root directory of your Gallery3 installation, do:
% patch -p0 < <name_of_patch_file>
where do you do that? from the browser? do you need a comman prompt? i am not familiar with the syntax. thanks.
Yes, you need a command prompt. If you're not familiar with using a shell, you might want to have someone do it for you.
it is a great module. hopefully you could improve as below:
Sometimes we upload files which does not contain Captured Date such as screenshot files.
Such situation we could use the file last modified time stamp as the Captured Date.
Thanks for your great work.
oops... wrong thread.
