how to have multiple albums on one web page

Greg,
new to your program and like it.
is it possible to have a web page set up so that I can have multiple albums on one page? if so would this be in the html coding BEFORE any reference to the http photo album?

I have one album on a page just fine. when I copied all the code from a "test page" within my html editor to this page, it would show the header for the second album but then broken links to the pics themselves while the coding was still on my PC and all files were available within the local website directory. I haven't uploaded this page to my website yet because it isn't working correctly.

Hi Mary,

Sorry for the delay...
First, did you notice httphotos builds a home page linking to all other albums?
Example:
http://www.digicamsoft.com/demo/
Is it what you are looking for?
If not, can you detail what you would like instead?

Thanks,
Greg

Greg,
sorry for my own delay. I was not asking about your digicamsoft site. I was asking about my own website. nothing has been uploaded to the web so you have nothing to look at, unfortunately.
you had a conversation with "Jubilee" on May 9 2009. she wound up describing something very close to what I'd like to have - a single page with perhaps 4 to 6 album intro photos for 4 to 6 different albums.
when the user clicks on one of these album intro photos, the full album page opens in the classic template format. clicking any one of the thumbnails allows this thumbnail to enlarge w/ text underneath it.
we'd need to provide navigation from this album page back to the "main" page with 4 to 6 album intro pages. then the user could choose another album intro photo and be led to a totally different album.
so I think my two basic questions are:
how to I designate a single pic from an album as the "cover photo" for this album? ...or not, see below.
how do I create links from beginning points on a page to multiple album galleries within one page? I could use either the cover page from each album, or a totally different pic ..this doesn't matter. what DOES matter is that I don't know how to insert multiple http galleries on one album page and have separate pointers to each of them.
you probably wind up teaching a lot of people some basic html commands, and this may be what is needed in this case. your advice would be welcome.
thanks very much,
Mary

Mary,
If you work with httphotos and create albums on your local drive, it still creates a homepage with links to albums like shown on the demo link above.
It should be located here:
My Documents\httphotos\index.html

You need to go to Publish To Web tab and build your albums from there.
Please let me know,
Greg
