    Simple multilingual gallery with descriptions and categories Link to this post

    I want to develop a gallery in SilverStripe which can contain categories, and for which multilangual descriptions can be added to pictures. The CMS user can only create new categories or delete existing categories, upload or delete pictures, and add descriptions to pictures in multiple languages.

    The problem is that the current Gallery module doesn't allow categories, has the configuration options available to CMS user (I want access to be limited to the developer), and for which no descriptions (let alone multilangual descriptions) can be added to pictures. If I understand it correctly descriptions can be added to assets, but no multilangual descriptions? I would like to have this all in one place.

    Has someone done anything similar?

    Multilingual content is (mostly) available for SiteTree objects, and we've implemented it for DataObjects as well (e.g. on translate.silverstripe.com). The problem is that you don't get a multilingual UI "out of the box" for stuff like ComplexTableField popups, in which you'd usually edit assets and categories. Documentation is available at: http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=multilingualcontent

    Depending on your php knowledge, I would suggest you try to enhance the existing gallery module in a well-tested and well-documented way - this way you can let the community benefit from your work. Having a multilingual gallery would be awesome!
