Photoblog doesn't quite seem to work like the manual

Hi,
I have tried to load a Photoblog. I have 2 problems. They are probably both my mis understanding. I'm wondering if there is some guidance available.
I expected to add multiple photos into 1 blog entry, or add a single photo per blog and give them the same category. Then the photos would 'stack' like they are in a folder and could be scrolled.
Currently I have 2 photos in 1 entry: http://www.crispfamily.net/blog/blog4.php and 1 photo in another. The 2 photos seem to show up as 1 long blog at first viewing. there doesn't seem to be a folder at all.

Does it matter if some are marked as "Teaser"whilst others are "After More"?

Also I tried to add an Index to the menu. I was tryiing to acheive this comment in the manual "By clicking "index" in the navigation menu, you can access the photo index. The photo index contains thumbnails of all the images in your photoblog." https://b2evolution.net/man/photoblog-anatomy. Each widget I chose that seemed to be an index turned into another type of item (mostly "recent entry".) What am I doing wrong?

Finally on the slideshow there are tick boxes for √Źnappropriate" and "Spam". Is there a way to hide them as I don't need them.

I am trying to use the default Photoblog skin.

I hope all this makes some sense as I haven't detailed everything precisely.
Thanks
Brian.

If you want photos to stack, you must use a "Photo Album" skin, not a "Photo blog" skin.

To link to your photo index you must use a "Menu link or button" widget and configure it to link to "Photo index".

Thanks, I applied a Photo Album skin, and it works like expected. I appreciate the rapid turn around, even if it has taken me a while to update the response.

A couple of follow up items listed above:

  • Finally on the slideshow there are tick boxes for √Źnappropriate" and "Spam". Is there a way to hide them as I don't need them.
  • Is it possible to auto start a slideshow when someone clicks on the stacked photos at the top? Currently what seems to be happening is when I click on the stacked photos and document opens with all of the thumbnails laid out on the page. When I then click on one of them I get the option to Start Slideshow.

Thanks
Brian

You would have to turn off all voting buttons at once.

To do that you would need to add a little javascript to your page that will open colorbox and start slideshow automatically on page load. Do you code?
