As I mentioned in a previous post about Jess Thompson Photography http://www.jessthompsonphotography.com, I have recently found this great AJAX|PHP Gallery system Minishowcase.
I have written an administration system to extend the already smooth system.
The Administration system plugs in and works pretty seamlessly with the front end.
Some features are;
» plug and play
» no editing original ‘minishowcase’ files.
» adding galleries,
» editing gallery text/html files in a WYSIWYG editor
» adding images to each gallery
» moving images between galleries
» previewing,resizing,rotating images ( while keeping their transparencies (gif|png)).
» multiple users
It is free to any one who wants it,
I have a demo on www.lendrum.co.nz for the front end, and the minishowcase administration plugin.
» Read the read_me.txt included with the download.
» upload to the root directory or your gallery.
» add the supplied ‘.htaccess’ file to the /admin/ direcotry.
» chmod(0777) the /galleries/ directory recursively
» chmod(0764) the users.inc file /admin/lib/users.inc
Basically that it!
Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
On friday afternoon I was online chatting with a friend who I have recently converted in to getting a mac, now she has one she is busy letting other people now the benefits of a mac. We often talk, and we were talking about some pretty neat photos she had taken lately and said that she wanted a website for them, but didn’t know how and asked for my help.
5 minutes later, she decided on a domain name and it was brought at Go Daddy, 5 minutes after that I set up space on my server and we now have http://www.jessthompsonphotography.com.
The photos currently on there are a couple of quick temporary photos until we decided what she wanted, and built up a system.
I started planning out building a system, and after some searching found a prebuilt system called “minishowcase : the super-easy gallery by Jess Thompson Photography soon it will be using the new gallery system and I will release the Administration plugin for free usage once it has been tested more.
