Hi everybody,

I'd like to customize a bit the ImageGallery Page but I can't figure it out...

The default behavior:
When you arrive on an ImageGallery Page, it displays eather an albums list (if several albums) or directly the album if the Gallery include just one album.

The behavior that I'm trying to get:
When there is several albums, I would like to display the first album of the Galery directly.

See in action:
Here is a ImageGallery Page with two albums :
You need to click on "M&O 2008" or "M&E 2009" to display an album. Instead of doing that, I would like to be directly in the first album of the Galery.

Any ideas of how I can do that ?

Many thanks in advance.

Create a new class, MyImageGalleryPage extends ImageGalleryPage

MyImageGalleryPage_Controller extends ImageGalleryPage_Controller
function index() {

Thank you UncleCheese, it works perfectly ! (cf )

Just a quick question:
If I go into the Behavior tab of my ImageGalleryPages, I select my new type of page "MyImageGalleryPage" and I do a db/build?flush=1, the redirection doesn't work. It only works when I create a fresh new MyImageGallery Page. It means I will need to re-create all the ImageGalleryPage with this new type of page.

Do you know how I can avoid that ?

Thanks again.

Hmm.. That doesn't make any sense to me. Something isn't right.

FYI, you should be using /dev/build, not db/build?flush=1.

Ok, nevermind. I'll figure it out.

Thanks again for your time.
