Organizing

Hello Gang,

I just stared using Media Gallery last weekend and could use a little help. I'm using it as a identification gallery for coral. At this time images will only be upload by myself.

I started by creating categories by coral families and uploading images. Then I realized they will need to be organized a little more carefully. So I created a child and moved an image to it. The category is (LPS Hard Corals) and the child is (Torch Corals). In my head what I'm imaging should happen is when I click on (LPS Hard Corals) I should be seeing the child (Torch Corals) and it's latest image but there is no images shown. I have to click on (Torch Corals) to see an image.

Is there a way to organize sub galleries using categories this way for should I be going about this differently?

Many Thanks,
Nick

Disable all groups from adding media to the parent category:
If no usergroups are selected then the category will become a container only and its category page will display media from all child categories

Thank you Mike that is 99% better! What I was hoping for is when you click on the parent it would show the child images grouped like albums. Is there a way to do that?

Thank you for your help!

Thanks fellas! Is that something me might see in the future? I know some of the ideas I have are not practical, just wondering.
