how to change Sub-Category thumb to same size as the rest
I created a sub category in my 'Portfolio' http://www.nickhaigh.net/Portfolio
called Commissioned Work but the thumbnail for this is smaller than the other galleries on the page, how can I change that thumb to the same size?

I have changed the gallery thumbs to 'Original' & 'Square' but the sub category thumb is still smaller!

no one seems to know the answer

Odd, they they should all be 150x150 with less the six on page. Try
regenerating the display sizes for that photo like rotating left then right and
see if it corrects it. Just a reach.

No, Just tried this and it's still small compared to the other gallery thumbs
also when you click to go to the galleries within the Sub-Category the thumbs are the same size...if that makes sense!

so it's just the sub category (commission work) thumb that's smaller

in fact, I don't think it's the sub category thumb that's too small, I think it's the other 2 gallery thumbs
on the page that are too big, as I have checked with the 'Galleries' page and they are the same size
as the sub category thumb...so I had discribed it wrong first off.

but any ideas how to change this?

Feature a different photo in that gallery and see if it comes in small. Then
re-feature back to the original one. It's currently picking up -Ti-2.jpg in the
html and should be Th-jpg.

Looks like a bug to me though.

I added it to the bug report forum, might track it there.

Another thing to try is rearrange the thumbs and see what happens, just curious.

Go to your main galleries box on your galleries page and make sure "position" is
selected instead of "recent" (upper left corner of box). This will activate the
arrange selection on every gallery, category and sub-cat box.

Nope, I don't have that option..

Add Photos | Tools | Buy | Themes | Visitor View

nothing else on the page I can change

You need to get a few of your galleries on your homepage because that's where this setting is. Your galleries view is a category, not a copy of your homepage and this setting is not there.

I'd suggest temporarily comment out this CSS:

.homepage #galleriesBox,
.homepage #categoriesBox,
.homepage #featuredBox {
display: none;
}


and add your galleries to your homepage with the homepage layout button. Then, when you see a listing of categories on your homepage, you should be able to get to the link that Allen mentions right above the category thumbs. Then, you can put things back again.

Did you see my explanation for why you aren't seeing it. You need to see your galleries in the homepage to get to this option.

arrange galleries, categories was not there, I did select show categories though.

also doing it this way

I'm not following what you're asking. If you can give me a link to a page and tell me what you expect to see on that page that you are not seeing, then maybe I can help.

anything else I can do?[/quote] Nick, you are using a script (that I wrote) that combines the sub-categories and the gallery thumbs into one box and it hides some of the remaining chrome. It will be easier to sort out what's going on in this page if you remove that script and disable the CSS associated with it so you can see the real Smugmug page.

I think you may be seeing the fact that while gallery thumbs will go to 150x150 when there are 5 or less, sub-category thumbs don't do that - perhaps they are always 100x100. So, as long as you have 5 or less galleries, they won't be the same size as your sub-category thumbs and thus you should not combine them like you are doing (or add more galleries).
