also I would like to see the options to leave a message on the picture which is not working even though you select allow leave message for this page.

I would like also to see the option to see what type of border you can select when in the gallery overview and if you want the text under the picture, left of the picture, right to the picture etc.. I know a lot of options just suggesting :) Thanks again for the great job.

Can you explain what you mean by leave a message?

Also, all of the templates and stylesheets can be overridden. What you get out of the box is just a quick-start example. I'm a little hesitant to start overloading the CMS with configurations of presentation because it starts to break the MVC pattern. I think controls over color and order of content are best handled at the View level.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you?

New version to be released very soon, with support for attaching an album to a folder, existing or new.

I was thinking to allow people visitors to leave a message on a specific picture. Hope this help.

Oh, I see. Like Facebook? That's interesting. Not sure where the message would go, with the Lightbox being used to display the images. What makes you think the feature is already there but not working?

well the is an option saying allow comments on this page under the behaviors option. Hope this help. Good Job.


For the comments I would include a link on the view picture which takes them to the picture page and then you can see all the comments for that picture.

I checked a few site and I found this..

and one of the features I like is to be able to send the picture to a friend (email) and yes you can leave a message and you can also select which size you want to view the picture.

Just my 2 cents.

Ok, there must be something wrong in my settings since I just get a weird time out error everytime I try to create the page.

I may start over since its just sitting on a vm and stuff has been pretty tweaked off and on it for a little bit now.

Either way, it still looks good and I want to get it running for the final site since I know its going to be put to use.

example:Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in \sapphire\filesystem\File.php on line 414

New version!

Albums are now tied to physical folders, so you have the option of creating a new space for your images, or using an existing folder. This is mostly beneficial to users who are currently on a standard GalleryPage and want to port over their existing images. Plus, it makes asset management a lot more organized.

Other fixes are mostly CSS bugs, IE6 in particular.

As always, demo is at:

Admin for gallery:

Admin for CMS:

Credentials: admin/password

The uploader isn't accepting my file on account of its size. Here's a link:
