Media Gallery - Index Page - Show Albums

Suggestion for XF Media - Media Index page.

I run a large gallery with over 1,000,000 photos that are all organized by albums. The suggestion is to show albums / album covers on the Media Index page. This helps increase content discovery and user interest, since there's a more interesting and varied mix of content.

The problem with the recent image feed is that one album of similar photos will flood the Media Index page. This is a real scenario that I ran on your Media app:

Clients need to click to page 5 before they see anything not related to the current album.

This is a major pain point for any large gallery system with a lot of activity.

I support this suggestion. It's not nice to see a single album taking up the entire media home page with similar images. Especially when a media gallery is only based on albums.
