Any time you change your one of your TGP page templates or add new galleries, it will be necessary to rebuild your pages in order to see the changes.
With TGP Rotator you can manually rebuild the pages any time through the control panel, you can use cron to update the pages automatically, and
you can also setup the gallery scanner to rebuild your pages when it's scan is complete. This document will explain what happens when you
rebuild your pages, and how to setup cron to automatically rebuild your pages.
The Rebuilding Process
Each time your pages are rebuilt there are several things that can happen.
Control Panel Interface
If you have made changes to the HTML for your TGP pages, the new HTML will be used. Any time that you change your HTML, you will
need to run the rebuild functions in order to see the new HTML.
Newly Added Galleries
If you have added new galleries since the last rebuild, those new galleries will now be eligible for display. Depeding on how your
template is setup and how you are sorting galleries, it may take more than one rebuild to see newly added galleries.
If you have deleted galleries through the control panel, or the gallery scanner has automatically deleted them, the galleries that
you deleted will be removed from the TGP pages when you run the rebuild function.
Through the control panel you can rebuild your pages at any time. To do so, locate the TGP Pages section of the control panel menu.
In this section you can click on the Build TGP Pages link to update your pages. When you run this function the software will go through
your template and display the correct galleries as you have specified. Galleries will be resorted based on the SORT option you have specified.
By using your server's cron system, you can have TGP Rotator update automatically at the times you specify. This can be used to have TGP Rotator update your
TGP page automatically once per day, once every hour, or however often you want. For complete details on using cron with TGP Rotator, please see the
section of the manual.
