Manual Album Sort

Hi,

Since the changes to Piwigo V11 I am finding it very difficult to manually sort the album order. Pre v11 it was easily possible to drag albums into the sort order I require.  V11 does allow that but it now seems more about looking pretty than being functional; it now take many attempts to achieve the order I want as the items are so spread out down the page and they don't scroll down easily with the new album ending up getting dtopped off into the wrong folder. 

This frustration has caused me not to want use Piwigo any more since v11 appeared.  I loved it up to then, but alas now hate it.

Sorry to have to say that, but if I could revert to the pre v11 version I would.

Other things which used to be simple such as viewing page visits now require a plug-in. The new pictorial view shows you nothing useful.  Why this drive to make it look pretty but take away the simple usability it had before?

IMHO It's been spoiled, sorry to say.

Re: Manual Album Sort

Hi !
I too have difficulties with album sorting, same as you describe. Pretty, in fact, but difficult to use.
I already told the coders about it.
A new release v12 beta can be tested, maybe the final release will mend this function. I hope so.

Hi Katryne,

Thanks for your thoughts, pleased it's not just me. You're lucky, you're still on v2.10 and I'd stay on that if I were you.

Regards

Re: Manual Album Sort

no, all my sites are made with Piwigo 11.5, except the test site which runs a beta 12.2.
If you want to test it, I give you the link.

Re: Manual Album Sort

I don't need to manually sort my albums often, but I do agree that the v11 UI changes made this more difficult, especially with longer album lists and scrolling, as mentioned.
