To Do's

I'll work through as many of those categories as I can over the next few days ... Thank you


Ghost Town bootleg


I added a bootleg "Ghost Town" but I can't figure out how to show it as "Bootleg: Ghost Town" as all the others here:

Category: bootlegs

Under "G"

Trying to "move" or redirect


I was unable to create a redirect:

From (Category: Page to be created later) Free Elvis

this exists with a different title here: Punch The Clock, Trust & Get Happy!! Sampler

Can you work some magic? TrevorD

Categories / sub categories

Nick: For "Singles" we only have the category "Singles"

For the image files I have uploaded (and generally) I am thinking of categorising as:

7" Singles 10" Singles 12" singles CD singles Cassette singles

Where multiple entries exist on a page, I would leave it as just "singles" but (particularly for individual images) I would want to create the above categories.

a) Is that a good idea? b) How do I create a new category? c) Is it possible to have a hierarchy of categories where all the above are a sub category of "Singles"?

Nick: Thanks for that reply all understood.

My final question now is: OK, so I have created the sub categories under category "Singles" Category:Singles Now - IF I put an image into one of the sub categories does it automatically get included in the parent category. ie. If I add a category "7" singles" to an image, does it STILL need to have the original category "Singles" there ...? (Or do I delete the category "Singles" ... )

Rendering images

Nick: I don't know if you can help, but I have been wracking my brains and trying all sorts of weird and wonderful things - none have been at all successful. I am trying to render images from the result of a query

Simply put it's just how do we dynamically answer questions like "Which 7" singles were released in Spain" (for example)

Step1: I have added categories like "7" Singles" and also "Spanish Releases"

I found this simple query:

Which produces (surprisingly) the right result - a page of images that are 7" singles and released in Spain. (if you take out the )

However, I have been unable to further render the results, for example making the images 100px or left justified, or anything really.

I have virtually given up; having not found anything worthwhile that can modify visually the results of this type of query.

If it's impossible I will stop trying.

request for a redirect

Hey Nick:

I don't have the right permissions:

But, could you create a redirect for this page:
The Very Best Of Elvis Costello (Promo)
to this page: (please)
The Very Best Of Elvis Costello Spain promo

Hi Trevor,

Either you have done this or I have, but there seems to be a redirect now. Perhaps you do have the permission!
