    We are testing the Gallery setup these days....

    Introduced Categories, and Now the Categories is being tested as the frontpage of the Gallery. We might take this a step further and introduce Category cover photos . They will be entry points to the various categories..

    All new Albums must be assigned to a Category, even it is to be the category: "Not Yet assigned to a category"

    All "old" albums has been assigned to ""Not Yet assigned to a category". Please consider assigning to the appropriate category. You will find the unassigned in bottom position inn the Gallery Frontpage.

    A few albums has been assigned to the Category: "Questionable" - because of problems related to the rules of the Gallery. The albums will only be visible to the Author, Admin and moderators..

    So.......

    The First Steps Into Male Chastity category has a few albums......
    And I don't think they're exactly what you were thinking would be in that category.

    Exactly! - There is no structure. And it will take some time to figure out exactly how to establish a meaningful structure. sure....
    But Now at least it has been illustrated that SOME hard work needs to be done....:)

    Remember- we are testing;-)

    I think that you will be better served to go the step further with Cover photos ... the cover photos will serve 2 purposes ...
    #1 it will set the tone for that category to help others place their items correctly (there will always be those that post in the wrong area this is done for many reasons but most times because they are looking to interact in that thread / category and the feel it provides)
    #2 it will again prevent a mass of dick shots from being there and if you use them (dick shot) on the cover photo you can choose it and it will not be 100's just a few.​

    YES, oh yes....:)!! I am working to find a solution. The "stupid" rigid software insists however to flash the "Gallery" menu as this or nothing! , But I am working on it... Believe me!:)

    Simple answer may be to just create a "page" that works as the gallery landing page that you create the html on ... assuming that XenForo lets you "create" pages much like WordPress does.

    That will work - a Gallery Landing page. However - The "Gallery" menuitem insist on dropping in on the top menubar nevertheless.... and that will lead to confusion I told You: The software is "stupid" - LOL

    Can you not Create a "custom" menu ... this will eliminate the standard "Gallery" and allow you to link to your Gallery Page ... again this is the way Wordpress works ... It will automatically place things in the menu area unless you tell it not to or create a "custom" menu.

    LOL no the software thinks it is being smart and "helping you" ... helping you lose your mind

    No - a custom menu is no problem, but the Gallery plugin/Add-om nevertheless puts "Gallery" in the Menu...
