No, joi uses CSS instead.

Yes, you should provide an absolute URL to the homeURL parameter. For
example, in the <bins> section of the album.xml, I have :
   <parameter name="homeURL">

Yours misses the http://

In the same way, I have 
    <parameter name="feedbackMail">

And it works. Can you try it in the album.xml to see if it changes
something ?

Again, here is an example : 
      <field name="sampleimage">

It is also possible to use an image that is in a sub-album :
      <field name="sampleimage">

Can you send an example of the	album.xml ?
