New From the very beginning of what I started here with this site, one thing I always wanted was a really nice Photo Gallery. I've done galleries before in the past, and between my older projects and what I know now, I knew I could do something really nice. In fact, the biggest reason I've put this off so long is because I wanted to make sure that when I started this project, I'd be able to put the time and care into it that was required for something really special.

Unfortunately, for those who couldn't tell, I've become very unmotivated with this whole thing, and hell, the Internet itself. I honestly just don't care anymore (and this damned laptop I use doesn't help anything).

Well, for no real reason at all, I did sit down yesterday and started to kind of sort of play around with setting up a Photo Gallery... And it's crap. But once again, I just don't care anymore. So I may be uploading it soon, ish. But yeah, it's SO far from anything I wanted before.

One obstacle I'm facing is actually uploading the pictures. Right now it is setup to only allow one photo to be uploaded at a time. I COULD work on allowing for multiple photos at once, though it would take a lot of time to code since I'd have to totally write all new functions since going from one to multiple changes how it works so drastically. However, even though there is HTML code to allow multiple files to be selected, there is no HTML that I can find that would set a limit.

Any form of limiting the number of files selected seems to be either Javascript based (or some other plugin), or it's server-side coding that would only kick in after the fact. Neither option is something I want. Javascript is fallible because it can be broken or flat out disabled on the users end. Server-side coding is useless because as I said, it only kicks in after the fact; someone would have already uploaded 10000 files (or had their session time out) by the time PHP could do anything.

So for now, I'm probably going to have to stick with only one file at a time, and even for myself, as the one working on this, that kind of sucks.

Oh well, I guess at the end of the day, what does it matter? I'm the only one using this site anyway, so even here I am just talking to myself. Expect an extremely rough 'Alpha' draft to go live somewhat soon. If you do happen to be reading this, and you happen to have any thoughts on the matter, please feel free to let me know.

An extremely basic, bland version of a Photo Gallery is now live here:

www.distantweb.net/gallery.php

Current Features:

*Upload/Edit/Delete Photos
*View Photos
--When viewing, you can click a photo for a full screen view

It's beyond bare bones at the moment. And honestly I don't know how much I care. For now, it is what it is. IF I decide to work on this more, some features for the future may include:

Albums:

*Right now you can choose an 'Album' when uploading a picture, but it doesn't do anything. Eventually I hope to offer more options for this, including viewing an album much like you view a category, and viewing all of a member's albums on one page, or all currently used Albums.

Ratings:

*This will be easy to add, I just haven't done it yet. This will act just like ratings for blogs and forum topics.

Long Descriptions:

*Right now you can add a long description, using BB Code and what not. It's just not being displayed yet.

Better Display options/layout:

*This is kind of self explanatory.

Anyway, that's about all I have to say right now. If you have thoughts or suggestions, feel free to let me know. In the meantime, I may get around to updating this whole thing, but I may not. It just depends on any amount of motivation I can find.
