Display featured album on home page

Hello,

I would like to display a block on home page called "Featured albums" containing album thumbnails with links to the albums, the selection to be manually changed when required.

My home page is created using PWG stuffs plugin which gets close to this with a "Featured photos" block, is it possible to tweak this block to feature albums rather than photos?

I have 270 albums and want to promote some that are low down in the album tree structure.

Thanks,
John

Thanks flop25,

I used Extended descriptions and PWG stuffs to create a Personnal bloc using simple html to add text plus a photo with url link to required album.
It's not as sophisticated as other Piwigo pages but it does the job.
