Perch 3 and Gallery app 2.8.8: can't delete albums and photos

Hi, I upgraded to Perch 3, which looks great, and updated the Gallery app from 2.8.6 to 2.8.8 as described on your website. Now I am not able to delete albums or photos within the albums.

When I click the "delete" button next to each album the "Are you sure?" message appears but when I click the confirmation button nothing happens and albums don't get deleted.

When I try to delete photos within an album I get this message:

Notice: Undefined index: action in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/path-to-my-local-site/perch/addons/apps/perch_gallery/modes/images.list.pre.php on line 25

Trying to reproduce the error under different conditions, I used Perch 3 and Gallery app version 2.8.6 (I just replaced the old apps/perch_gallery folder) and I am able to delete albums and photos as normal.

This is my diagnostics report:

Sounds like something is amiss - I'll see if I can reproduce it here.

Thanks a lot, Drew.

I also get the same problem, although when trying to delete images nothing happens and I don't see any error message.

Yeah same error here, can't delete galleries or images. Other than this all seems to be working fine on the 3 sites I've updated... only 30+ more to go.

If anyone is in need of a quick fix for now...

Right click the delete button > Open in new Tab or Window > The "Deleting an Album" page works fine.

I am also unable to delete gallery images in Perch 3. I get the following error message:

Undefined index: action in /home/vagrant/sites/ on line 25

Sorry - false alarm. I just update the gallery app and all is now working.
