How to create parent album for existing albums keeping links & stats

Greetings,

I have created album "a", later "a2" and "a3".  Visitors already use the link of these albums and of images within them to share with eachother.

Now I would like to create a parent album "p" regrouping "a" and "a2" and "a3" under it. So, in the main menu there would only be "p" and when one enters would see the 3 subalbums:
p
p/a
p/a2
p/a3

Important: While doing so, I would like to keep the links and the statistics for the albums and for the photos within them.

The site is with Piwigo 2.4.7

How may I do this?

Thanks,

Tamás

Hello

are your albums virtual ? (created through the admin panel)
if so you can create your new album and moves the old ones without any problem

if not (you use FTP synchronisation) unfortunately this is not possible, all links will be broken

All of them are created via FTP.

So, nothing to do?

Thanks,

unless you take time to manually modify the database, no
but I don't remember how complex it is or which fields to modify

Thanks a lot!

Oké, I just leave it as it is now.

For the next time... Am I better off ... NOT using FTP?

Maybe you should run [extension by plg] Virtualize and manage virtual albums the way you want

How does one create a new virtual album and within this have a link to an existing set of virtual albums please? I do NOT want to move the existing ones, just make an additional  container album for them at a different level in the Hierarchy..
