Subfolders
« on: November 15, 2007, 09:14:44 pm »

During some recent host changes, I went from Coppermine to Gallery2 and back to Coppermine. After being on Coppermine for so long, I just hated gallery2.

My question is, the one thing I liked about G2 was being able to make sub folders, is this possible with Coppermine without a lot of modification? I did a search for sub and subfolders, but maybe I am searching for the wrong thing?


I want to be able to have a Family folder with the different Family members in that folder, then break out from there with their own topics.

For Example:

Family
   |   
Jones
   |                               |                        |
Florida Vacation            Hiking Trip             ETC


Thank you.

I should note, I have a Category called family.

They are called subalbums, and they are not supported. You should be able to do what you want with simple subcategories however.

Thank you for the reply.


Can you comment on if they will be supported in an upcoming version?

Unless I give each of the family members administrator privilege, they will not be able to make subcategories.

That's correct. However non-admins are not allowed to create albums in public albums either.
Sub-albums are hard to implement, given coppermine's core design, that's why it's impossible to say if it is going to go into a future release. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that feature.
