#11102 closed Bug Report - General (Won't Fix)

Improvement to UI in Gallery

Reported by: jason@… Owned by: stuartm
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: Plugin - MythGallery Version: Master Head
Severity: low Keywords: MythGallery, UI
Cc: Ticket locked: no


MythGallery uses a random picture from each sub-folder to create an icon for that folder.

Sadly, if it can't read that picture for some reason, it creates a blank icon.

This means when browsing a folder full of sub-folders you get a screen full of identical blank icons with no way of determining which icon is which folder unless you individually select them to show the folder name in the title bar at the top of the screen.

This effectively makes browing a folder structure almost impossible.

Proposed improvements: 1: It should both (perhaps optionally) always put the folder name under each folder. 2: It should, rather than choose a random single image, select the first four READABLE images recursively and create a collage from them, that way identifying a folder. If there are less than four readable images, then it should show empty cells in a 2x2 block.

Patch is forthcoming, I assume? We don't accept feature requests as tickets without attached patches. Please take it to the mailing lists if you wish to discuss ideas.

There is a bug in here though, so I'll leave this open.
