How would you compare Coppermine to Gallery?
« on: November 22, 2004, 11:53:07 pm »

I currently have the program Gallery (Menalto) installed in my website, but I am not very satisfied because it'svery hard to integrate it with PHPbb. I heard that coppermine integrated better. But better how?
Is the user base integrated? Can I display images on the forum pages and vice versa?
What actually can be done?

I would also like to hear what othger features of Coppermine makes it superior to Gallery.

Thanks a lot for helping.

Whether coppermine is better than Menalto is of course a matter of opinion, and I'm sure you'll get a different answer on their boards than you'll get here.

Coppermine integrates with phpbb, and several other bb systems easily (this will be even easier in the next version, with an integration wizard).  When integrated, coppermine uses the user management of the bbs.

You can use rss feeds or ssi to display images from coppermine on your boards.

As to other features, just look at the docs and faq, as I don't know menalto, I don't know what features we have they don't

So, should I wait to the new version? When is it coming?
What if I integrate now, will it be OK to upgrade to the new version later?

and another question. Can I import my gallery from Gallery Menalto to Coppermine?

Thanks

No date for the full release of 1.4, it's with the testers now.

No need to wait, upgrading will be easy.

There is an importer in the mods board for gallery to coppermine.
