Recently updated albums/categories
« on: January 04, 2005, 12:51:57 pm »

Some gallery software have that feature where you can see in the albums/categores list those that were recently updated. I think it would be great as an option to Coppermine, where the date since when it was updated would be admin configureable. One thing that make it a bit harder is that it should be recursive. I mean, if I have Category > Sub-category > Album where Album has been updated, Category and Sub-category should be shown as updated aswell... just like every bb/forum system actually.

What do you mean by 'updated'? Do you mean recently uploaded, or editted file information, like description? Do you want something in addition to the current meta album that shows latest uploads?

I think it should be exactly like a forum. Let's take it to the perfection (in my mind anyway ;-) )

If I have that structure
Code: [Select]
|-> Category 1
| |-> Subcategory 1.1
| | |-> Album 1.1.1
| | `-> Album 1.1.2
| |   |-> Picture 1.1.2.1
| |   `-> Picture 1.1.2.2
| |-> Subcategory 1.2

If I add a picture, it should look like
Code: [Select]
|-> Category 1 (updated)
| |-> Subcategory 1.1 (updated)
| | |-> Album 1.1.1
| | `-> Album 1.1.2 (updated)
| |   |-> Picture 1.1.2.1
| |   |-> Picture 1.1.2.2
| |   `-> Picture 1.1.2.3 (new)
| |-> Subcategory 1.2

If I add an album, il should look like
Code: [Select]
|-> Category 1 (updated)
| |-> Subcategory 1.1 (updated)
| | |-> Album 1.1.1
| | |-> Album 1.1.2
| | `-> Album 1.1.3 (new)
| |-> Subcategory 1.2
The same for the categories, etc.

That's how a Bulletin Board works too.

Of course, you just need to mark the lowest level visible: if the updated albums are shown, you don't need to mark the upper categories and subcategories. I don't know if it makes sense for you since I'm not that fluent in english, especially when it comes to concepts...
