It would be nice to be able to have the ability to
avoid the creation of the following files:
- allindex.html
- sortindex.html

Current workaround would be an empty template for
them, but having the ability of skipping them
completely would be even better.

If your files are named like you get them from the
Kodak floppies you get with your standard film
processing, you don't have the luxury of nicely named
files. So a sortindex does not make sense.

If you have thousands of pictures, the allindex.html
file does not make sense anymore. In this case one
might not want to have an allindex.html file.

Skipping dirindex.htm, trackindex.html or image.hml
on the other hand would not make sense. At least I
can not come up with a stituation where one might
want this.

What do you think?

Regards,
Thomas

    I heartily agree with this one. At the moment I'm locally
    modifying my
    copy of curator (v2) and my makefile that I use for the
    download/rename
    and other processing procedures deletes the aforementioned index
    files, but I'd like to stop running a hacked curator script.

    Curator is a nice package. I find it unfortunate that this
    feature
    request was submitted a year and a half ago and it has not yet
    been adopted.
