New Multimedia gallery installed
« on: Jul 22, 2015, 18:54:35 »
A new Gallery that supports many different types of file such as video, pictures and youtube links etc.. has been installed.

It will take a while to set up some corresponding forums and also learn how to use it fully :)

it can be made so :)  .. suggestions welcome

trying to sort out how to import the historic images too i have found lurking.

looks like i have to hack the old gallery to make it install and work , then i can use a tool to import from it before removing it again.

managed to import the old data. a lot of it isn't visible i suspect as i have to go through every album and re-set permissions.

The link is "multimedia" on the top bar.

@Ashley  The permissions system on the forum is the spawn of the devil!  :furiouspop: .

see if you can see it now. spent a looong time sorting the permissions for every single old gallery item too , hopefully they can now all be seen :juggle:

hi all do NOT uses the image editor in the new multimedia facility please. it seems the author has a problem with the system he uses for it so any image you try to edit gets deleted :(

@Bill  . . .  just a random thought . . . I don't suppose there's any easy way to have a banner running across the page with random pics from the gallery on it? I just thought it would be a good way of generating interest and comments, as everyone likes a good picture.
It's better to burn out than to fade away . . .
