Description: Sort albums in Descending order and Album contents in Ascending (Newest albums first, pictures in order by name)
Source of information: Gallery KB
Links: http://gallery.menalto.com/node/67859
Resolution or Work-around: Here's a semi-automatic way to achieve what you want.
Once your new albums are loaded, go to your root album and click Edit Album. Now click the Album tab, select whichever sort order you wish to use (I use Name, since my albums are all prefixed with a date in yyyy-mm-dd format and the images are all sequentially numbered), selecting Ascending, AND making sure that Apply to All Subalbums is checked. Click Submit. This will cause your root album and all your subalbums to be sorted in ascending sequence.
Now you need to select the sort order for the root album only, so repeat the process except select the Descending sort order and make sure Apply to All Subalbums is NOT selected. Click submit, and you now have your root album sorted Descending and all subalbums sorted Ascending.
*** Important Note*** This may also require a re-index of the database before it appears correctly.

Resolution or Work-around: Open (CubPack2FF2\images)enter4.psd in Photoshop, in the LText layer add the text you want with the Text tool. You can match colors to one of the existing buttons if necessary. Use BOLD font. Save as "btn%name of function%2%On or Off%.gif. (in other words, btnpackoree2on.gif) There are two images for each link, one for on and one for off. Using Dreamweaver, use the onMouseOver MM_swapImage function to create the mouse over effect of the button changing words.
