2. Albums Grid View

This view displays all the albums from the selected Album. While creating Menu Item with this view in the tabs you can find the same options you set in global component configuration. You don't need to set anything here unless you want to change the way this Album and its child Albums are displayed - those settings will override global settings.


Component view items module

"Albums limit per page" is the new / recently added option that allows you to set the pagination limit for albums list in the component view.  It's at the same time the pagination limit for Albums Grid Module.

Look at the example view of the Album Grid.



3. Single Album View

This view displays selected Album items on one of the Album layouts (Album layout parameter). If Album has child Albums they will display or not depends on parameter (above or below the Album layout). Look at the example view of the Album Grid with different Album layouts.
