Title: Last pictures added on static page
Post by: emjay_smitten on January 26, 2010, 02:37:55 am
Hi,

I have a static web page before the coppermine as an introduction page. I want to (dynamically) add the last (four) added pictures (as thumbnails) on this static page. So every time something new is added into coppermine it will be displayed there too. I don't have to use a theme from coppermine on the static page.

Is there a way to do this?

A little searching would have provided you an answer.....

Nice idea for your site - good luck with it.

I looked through the pages but is says Coppermine documentation for this program has not been written. And frankly I dont want to use a third party program if it can been done otherwise.

But thanks anyway.

We really can recommend using cpmFetch. Does it make you feel more comfortable to use that tool if we tell you that the author of cpmFetch is a team member of the coppermine dev team? Go ahead and use cpmFetch, it's great.

This has been done on a thousand pages. cpmFetch doesn't write anything back to coppermine's table, so it won't harm anything in case something goes wrong.

Moving...

OK. Then I believe it can be good solution. Thanks. I will close this topic now according to the rules.
