Shouldn't be necessary, thanks.

I have looked carefully at my code and have two observations:

a) the built-in default for thumbspfx is an empty String. It is just 
possible that your line is assigning something else 
(space or carriage return). Could you please simply delete or comment 
out this line and let my own global default take effect?

b) my own thumbs are built by a package called ginp, which assigns a 
thumbnails sub-directory name of ".ginp". Under linux, any files or 
directories whose names start with a dot are treated as hidden (like the 
windows hidden attribute). The PhotoCollectionPlugin behaves like a 
linux filesystem viewer and by default will hide anything with a leading 
dot. I manually added showhidden='true' to the [{INSERT 
PhotoCollectionPlugin}] command in one of my directory wiki pages... and 
I a hyperlink to create a page for my thumbs directory appeared!!!

Unfortunately, your thubnail directory does not start with a leading dot 
and I don't have the converse logic to let you "hide" it.

I will add this feature in a new release (see separate post coming 
soon), but in the meantime, could try renaming one (or all) of your 
thumbnail subdirs to ".thumbs"? I predict the unwanted hyperlinks will 
miraculously disappear!
