Create Album

Post by Finny91 »

First of all, I'm a huge fan off the phpBB Gallery Modification made by nickvergessen. But, if I remember correctly, it was always a standard option in phpBB 2 to add a album to your forum. I stead of using a modification, why not simply ad the option "Create album" to the create list, so you can chose to create a:
  • Forum
  • Categorie
  • or Album
So instead of creating a new forum, you chose album and add a album to your index. Now its possible to have forums and albums on one index. For example:
  • Categorie: Vehicles
    • Forum Volvo (forum)
    • Forum BMW (forum)
    • Upload your vehicle (album)
  • Categorie: Nature
    • Forum Animals (forum)
    • Forum Flowers (forum)
    • Nature images (album)

I love the idea bit it would have to be a feature in the respective mod/ext.

You also remember completely incorrectly. There was never an option built into phpBB2 for a Gallery. There were mods that either added the functionality to phpBB2 or added a bridge to some third party app like Gallery or Coppermine.

No thanks, I don't see the point. The gallery mod's great though and should somehow be converted to an extension. But I don't like using forum sections as galleries.

I think it's too specific to particular forum subjects. Most boards would probably not use it so it's better as a MOD.

+1 on this, better as a MOD/bridge with another well known gallery system, otherwise you end up trying to be everything to everybody and lose track of the core project.
