I am terribly dissatisfied with the current options available for photo galleries plugged into Geeklog. So... I'm going to develop a gallery plugin that is truly plugged in to Geeklog from the get go much as the outdated Geekary seemed to be.

My first thought was to plug Coppermine in, but it was a bit heavy for some of my clients. so....

OK, so I don't really have any clients! I gotta sell you somehow

My intention is to build two versions: lite--less overhead, simple functions, more intuitive than the usual suspects, simple layout; and a heavy version that will sport much greater functionality having a much thicker back end, more options, as well as layout options.

* There will be no popup windows and no javascript.
* The gallery will recognize FTP uploaded albums as well as those uploaded from within the plugin's upload interface.
* All of the gallery configuration will take place from within the plugin's admin interface--from the directories to the layout and beyond.
* In addition to pics belonging to albums they will also belong to categories and will be viewable from within category pages as well as album pages.
* This gallery will support multimedia: pics, sound, video, etc.--much like Coppermine does. The lite version will support only pics--I'm thinking anyway.
* and more...

This will take me a while, but before I get into it to much please let me know (in this thread) what you might like to see in this Geeklog gallery that you don't get in other galleries or what you would like to see that you do get in other galleries.

I have no name for this gallery so if you would like to suggest one, feel free.

Wonderful idea!

Well, there're a few options that I would like to be present:
Ability to turn off/on voting and comments. (I hate the voting feature so that will be disabled on my site)

Most galleries have the same design, you have the column of thumbs (which is fine) and then when clicking on a pic you get this standard layout (picture, comments and info below, navigation on top). That layout is very boring. Why not put the picture on the left and the info on the right for example. It's not important, but still....

Maybe it's a good idea to have an alternative of showing two versions of the pic? For example: under the thumbs you have an option of viewing the pic in low resolution. This means that the ppl/webmaster have to make two versions/uploads of picture though, maybe too much to ask ?

Good luck

Another great idea. I have incorpoarted a couple of your other great additions to GL. I have both your daily quote and alfiegeorge theme in effect at my site.

Out of the Darkness. I'll be trying to come up with a cool name for the plugin. In the meantime keep up the outstanding work.

I'd recommend per image or at least per album level access restrictions. You can do something similar to articles/polls/links with columns: owner, owner_perm, group, group_perm, anonymous.

Hi Machinari,

I think this is a great idea! I have long dissatisfied with the current choices of photo galleries for use with GL also. Mind you I'd be happy enough if someone integrated Coppermine with GL...no one seems to be at all interested in that...BUT...if you want to go ahead and write a fully fledged GL plugin...I'd say...go for it!!!!


We're currently using Gallery...a great piece of software in many ways...BUT...it's very annoying to have to set album permissions on an individual basis...especially when you have over 500 members...grrrr. At the moment, our members can't name their own albums (these are sub albums in a top level "Members" album). If we give them the ability to alter their album name and description, they also have the ability to change everyone else's album name and description too! Hmmm not very satisfactory.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing your progress with this plugin. If it's anything like the Dailyquote plugin...it'll be fantastic!

This is probably a little far fetched, but figured I'd try. I want to see something along the lines of cardomain and sounddomain. I have been looking for something like that in a gallery for quite some time.
This would be mainyl for users to show off thier pic, with the users comments or whatever for each picture. Just like cardomain/sounddomain, but wrapped in Geeklog.

I told ya it was a little far fetched... sorry.

most galleries employ a comment system of some kind... so not sure what you mean here.
either way, this gallery will support GL's comment engine as well as having owner's title, caption, description (perhaps can include thumbs and html in description as well), exif, etc. with the ability to enable or disable any/all components.
per album and per image level access restrictions will be employed just as Vinny suggested. this will also take care of s_witch's request for per album edit privs for album owners.
The main layout is what I am excited about actually--i mean it's just html after its all done and said, but its look good on paper.

Where's that name come from? I don't care what you call it...if it does what we need...I'll love you forever...er...figuratively speaking of course

Oh and I forgot to mention before, we'd like to see a rating feature incorporated...I know some don't like this...BUT...perhaps it could be turned off via the admin inteface. (We run monthly competitions where the users vote on images in a particular album...and we've found it a popular feature...)

For album permissions and structure, you could use the folder code I've written for my Easyfile file management plugin. It features a hierarchical structure with individual access rights on all folders. It already supports editing, moving, deleting, etc. that you might want on a photo album.

Yeah give it a rest people. Anyone familiar with machinari's previous work will know that you'll be getting a quality plugin...AND...if he's said he'll do something...he'll do it.

We are ALL eagerly awaiting a native GL gallery plugin...but hey...give the guy a break...we can't just click our fingers and expect this thing to be produced overnight!

Have to agry with ScurvyDawg and allthough I think it's a great idea to have a native lite plugin for pictures, I would even like it more if an additional integration with Gallery is done.

Defintly don't want to hijack the thread away from machinari greats initiative, but .. 3 thoughts if I may.

1. Isn't a full blown image plugin not too much for one person, even if talented as machinari. People will want all the same stuff as Gallery, Coppermine, ...

2. Will you consider a migration path to GeekShow, if not I am afraid it will be only for new installs.

3. Why not follow the path of phpbbridge and choose one and fully integrate it, leaving the core image stuff for the third party and focus on the integration. User base, permissions, searchability ...

I really like the idea of a native one, but truely afraid it will be missing the features you are used to with the other ones and migration could become a hassle.

Just my copper.

I might be wrong here but I think the whole point of this new plugin is that some people don't want or need all the extra features (bloat) of these gallery systems. If they do need all the extra features then Gallery is quite easy to install with GL, and when GL2 becomes more stable, integrating blocks and such to your GL site is about as easy as if it was a native solution.

Well actually yes I do. I am very familiar with Gallery and Geeklog in fact. We have using GL and Gallery on several of our sites for some time now.

As I've said earlier in this thread, Gallery is fine for a hobbyist type site with a small number of members. It becomes rather tiresome to manage however, when you get to a decent size (we have over 600 members on one site in particular) because of the way the album properties work in Gallery.

I beleve galery is to much of a moving target for geeklog intergration. the bigest problem with most "intergration" plugins is that they are always dreadfuly behind in what version of the program they are intergrating with. Lets face it. open source programs can sometimes be too dificult to keep up with when some one else is doing the dev and you dont have any control over where they are going. Every time they change something the plugin has to change. Some times its better to roll your own than try to constently keep up with some one else's whims. most people just want a catagorized image galery with image submital via que like the filemgnt plugin. this would sufice for most people. just thumbs and a click for full size image, anything else is over kill and too much to maintain. I say just take the filemgnt plugin and tun it into a galery plugin. It dosent look hard and even i could pull it off if need be. The only thing i ask for is if some one does it, make it store images outside of the web root as me and mthomas have done with the filemgnt plugin

FWIW as soon as I get my new books plugin to a point where I'm happy with it, I'll probably dust off my old UPIC code, rip it out of the upage plugin, and make a UPIC plugin. I really want to get gallery off my website but my current UPIC does not have the feature-set to replace it.

I use the Gallery in a big way on my site.
1. Needs to have a way to convert Gallery to your plug.

2. Permissions per user/group-per - photo/album/sub album.
Also make it were you can save changes to all sub-albums
Able to turn linking on and off. (I prefer on. But most I think well want off)

3. Able to make Sub albums but also a way to have a information block that can read whats new properly.

4. It well be great for sites like mine that give users Albums in the Gallery to customize there space.(No big deal if you don't)

5. I really like to see something that well auto make a album when they have been given a group access. So I don't have to make them every time a user gets to that point I let them have 1. Make sure at first they are the only ones that can see it tell they change the permissions.

6. FTP drop well be great.

7. A way to sort.

8. An Archive option for people that leave the site but you don't want to lose the pics.

9. When someone is deleted, It well delete the album also unless you have Archive on.

10. Something that well tell them they have comments to there pic.
Like a PM.
Use the messenger. But if you want to make it were anyone can use it.
Make a box saying you have new comments.

11. For sites that give user access, a way to add like the lattice pics added to there album in there profile page.
Maybe even show thumbs of the last 4/5 pics.

I can go on.
But I think that get the jest.

Not sure what he means, but it brought bandwidth leeching to my mind.

PHP can't off course prevent people from linking to a picture on your site and using that picture on their pages without consuming any of their own bandwidth, because PHP is not involved in that process.

But for apache, the .htaccess file can (see for instance http://www.simcoweb.com/am/publish/article_7.shtml).

Menalto Gallery writes to the .htaccess file (and puts stuff in there in a cute way), so in principle it should be possible to make the a gallery plugin place those lines in it and stop people from leeching on request from a nice setup page.


And, hey, thanks for working on this!

Woah; first it was alive, then dead, now alive again. It's frankenphoto. Or photostein.

I was looking for something "better" than the 120x140px picture upload that GL used; something that took five pics or so and could resize to something appropriate AND could pop up a bigger window on click. Something between what's there and what you're crafting I don't need to deal with different layers of security or with full-blown albums. Any ideas where I should be looking?

Yes 1 of the problems with gallery is when you make a hack for the whats new block.
There has always been a problem with it reading changes to Sub-albums.
And the few that did find a way ended up breaking Geeklog security and showing link/pics to photos that they was not suppose to have access to.

3 good reason
1. If there is a fluke with the site. Say some newbie or even a plug-in submitted a delete command for a/all users. lol It's easy to back up a database. But not a gig website from an ftp
2.The user somehow hit the delete account button thinking it was save. (It happened 3 times this month lol)
3.For some reason the owner of the site liked the pick. And don't want to lose them. But also don't want to copy every pic they like, that a user submits.
Just for good messier
4. We always run into new problems. This may save a site 1 day. lol
