Where are the appearance settings for Photos?

Running PlexConnect v0.5 there seems to be appearance settings for Movie, TV Shows, Music and Home Video libraries but no appearance settings for Photo library.

How do users adjust folder settings for their Photo library?

There are currently no "view" options for the your photos available - only one kind of photo library browser. No "skins", no settings.

 

What do you imagine/wish for photo library presentation? How could it look like? If you have different ideas, someone might be able to implement them - or at least check for feasibility.


Plex @ aTV - think different: PlexConnect

-> the missing link between Plex Media Server and your AppleTV - 2 or 3, jailbroken or not.

Hello, thank you for your interest.

 

I do not require anything so complicated, I only suggest that the Photo library may have the same customisation as the other Movie, TV Shows, Music and Home Video libraries.

 

Meaning; to be able to adjust the sorting categories such as 'Recently Added', 'Year', 'Camera Made', 'Camera Model', 'Aperture', 'Shutter Speed', 'ISO' and 'Lens'.

 

To clarify, in for example with Movies, in PlexConnect's Main Menu you are able so adjust under appearance settings the 'Movie Navigation Bar' categories that appear.

 

However there is no settings in the main menu for Photos so the Photo Navigation Bar could be adjusted for individual user selectable categories.

It seems whenever you select a photo library it automatically defaults to the 'Recently Added' navigation bar menu header.

 

There is surprisingly no user option to configure custom navigation bar settings for photo libraries like movie libraries within plexconnect?

 

Maybe I am missing something but this seems like a huge oversight when it would be logical to standardise all user navigation bar menu settings for all libraries.

 

Very minimal coding would have to be implemented for this to become streamlined for navigation bar settings.

Plexconnect is open source so happy coding seem its is minimal.
