I have a PHPBB fourm and was trying to use some mods to make it easier for pictures to be used. I also chekced out several other gallery type packages, sadly I finally gave up a few months ago. In my searches then I did not find Coppermine for some reason.
Four days ago I found Coppermine and gave it a try.
My reaction: OMFG this is *&^%$ing awesome!!!!!
The ease of install, the ease of "customizing", the ease of use is right off the top of my scale!! I love this thing!!
In a matter of just a couple of hours I had the gallery installed, and over 1600 pictures imported and categorized!!!
Many many many thanks to all the devs, retired and active, for this awesome, awesome piece of software!!!!!
I came back tho the Coppermine homepage for the sole purpose of sending a thank you email to the the devs, or support guys, giving them my support and happiness...then I saw this thread...thiank you (too) for starting the thread!!!
