hh..Hi everyone..

I am looking for the following:

A small script to scan a folder for images then give the results as a list, EG:

scan the following folder :
"assets/images "
.. then load the results into a $variable so $variable will result in:
<img alt="" src="/assets/images/image-1.png">
<img alt="" src="/assets/images/image-2.png">
<img alt="" src="/assets/images/image-3.png">
.... & so on
also, has anyone yet create a "working" galley & slider module or widgets.. I wish i had more time, i would be creating one...

Thank you Great SS :D

Maybe do a query on your Files table. something like:

DataObject::get('File', "ClassName = 'Image' and Filename like '/assets/images/%'");

That will get you the images in the /assets/image/ directory and all its subdirs. It'll work for images that live the Files & images section of the CMS
