I've got SD working great.  version 2.2.4.  Couldn't get 2.3.3 to work
in my buildout.  Anyway, it's a wonderful product and I'm having a fun
time with it.  Lots of usefulness!  The one problem I'm noticing
however, is that within a chapter, the "photo album with thumbnails"
view does not display the same as standard plone album_view.  The
images immediately within the chapter folder are displayed.  But
subfolders are not displayed.  With plone album_view, subfolders are
displayed with rotating thumbnails of the images contained within.
With SD album view, subfolders appear as empty, with no thumbnail.
Can you advise as to how I might fix this to display rotating
thumbnail images for subfolders?
