The album representative is the thumbnail displayed on the main page (category.php) to represent the album when it contains only sub-albums and no direct photo (just as the root album).photo of a album :
The choice of a representative depends on the
allow_random_representative configuration parameter (see include/config_default.inc.php).
In default mode (
allow_random_representative set to false),
each album containing at least one element is represented by a fixed
element. Once set (at album creation), the representative changes only
when an administrator ask for it. If the representative is not appropriate,
you can ask to Find a new representant by random.
allow_random_representative configuration parameter is
set to true, a category containing photos may have no fixed
representant. Just use Delete representant button.
If the album contains only sub-albums and no photo, it can nonetheless be represented by any element thanks to Modify informations about a photo screen. The only option on the current screen is the Delete representant button.
