    Hi, I have installed album plugin and it does not have add entry button as other plugins have.
    How can I add new photos?

    Greetings @guja ,

    Here is detailed instruction for usage of Albums plugin:
    1) install the Albums plugin
    2) go to Configuration page of Albums plugin (http://yourdomain.com/admin/configuration/albums/)
    3) in order to set to admin only adding albums you need to turn on the 'Display Member's albums in Gallery' setting and insert the username of administrator to 'admin' field
    4) in order to add albums as admin you need to go to Frontend page -> Member Menu -> My Albums -> New Album (http://yourdomain.com/profile/albums/ -> New Album in the top right corner) -> fill up the fields and create new album
    5) in order to add photos to album you need to click on needed album on profile albums page (http://yourdomain.com/profile/albums) and then click on Upload Photo

    If you turn on the 'Display all photos in Gallery (hide albums)' setting in Admin Panel then the 'Display Member's albums in Gallery' will not work and all the photos (not albums) of pointed by you member will be displayed on Gallery page (http://yourdomain.com/gallery).

    Also you need to know that http://yourdomain.com/albums page will not work (as it should). This page is parent page of albums page of any member. So if you add username to http://yourdomain.com/albums then you will get working page. For example, http://yourdomain.com/albums/admin/

    If you have any suggestions please send them us and we will consider them.
