Guidance Needed: Best Way To Structure Gallery?
« on: November 12, 2004, 10:12:23 pm »

Hello, I am in the process of setting up a server to run cpg and had a few questions before i install it and begin customizing it,etc.

I was looking for some advice and tips on the best way to organize the albums and photos for my situation. No comments,etc will be shown,want to keep it as simple as possible,no extra features.

The Breakdown:

Weekly TV Show: Each week will add 60-100 Photos from our weekly TV Show.Organized by date.

Pay-Per-View Photos: Each month will add 60-100 photos from the ppv. Also,I will be archiving photos from almost 50 past ppv's  in cpg. about 60 pics per ppv.

Special Events: Photos from special events. not very often.

Stars: Photo albums broken down by the stars names.

What structure do you suggest for my situation that will be easy to navigate for the visitors and be logical?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I'm sure we could all come up with a different solution, but the regular advice is to try and mirror the category/album structure you envisage with your folders setup.

It is helpful that you know the aproximate format of the gallery before you start.

Try this;

  • albums
    • Special
    • Stars
      • star1
      • star2


    • 2004
      • january
      • February
      • and so on

    • 2005
      • january
      • February
      • and so on

It has been a long time now since I did my little bit here, and have done no coding or any other such stuff since. I'm back to being a noob here
