Gallery module with subdirectories

Hello everybody, here is an idea to display all files (for example images) existing in the selected directory and also in subdirectories for the gallery module (v0.2.2).

I've found a topic about that problem in the archive ( and an enhancement ticket (
Perhaps someone can add a comment there...

OK, here it is:
There is a // TODO comment in the Items() function on line 207 in code/GalleryPage.php
You need to replace it with this lines of code, where it searchs for subdirectories and builds a new extended where query with all FolderIDs

/** Searching through sub-directories if required to find appropriate files **/
      $subdirs = DataObject::get("File", "`ClassName` = 'Folder' AND `ParentID` = '{$this->FolderID}'", "`File`.`Sort` ASC");
      $subdirQuery = '';
      if ($subdirs) {
         $subdirIDStr = '';
         foreach($subdirs as $subdir) {
            $subdirIDStr .= " OR `ParentID` = '{$subdir->ID}'";
         $subdirQuery = "(`ParentID` = '{$this->FolderID}'".$subdirIDStr.")";
      } else {
         $subdirQuery = "`ParentID` = '{$this->FolderID}'";

Now we need to add the query to the file select statement...
Replace Line 223

return DataObject::get("File", "`Filename` REGEXP '[.]({$extensions})\$' AND `ParentID` = '{$this->FolderID}'", $sort, "", $limit);

With this

return DataObject::get("File", "`Filename` REGEXP '[.]({$extensions})\$' AND ".$subdirQuery, $sort, "", $limit);

@all admins: It would be nice to have a message service in this forum to get in contact with other members
