Site now validates…

I’ve gotten around to validating the code, and found a few bugs in the theme code. The pages should validate now.

A friend noticed a problem [difference] between MS IE and Firefox. The banner is not a link in firefox. That was subtle anyway, so I added a link to the main page in the links section, put the links at the top and always enabled the remainder of the menu on all pages. No reason to be subtle with navigation.

Glitches with Gallery are fixed…

At least I think they are fixed…
You may have noticed that some pictures couldn’t be displayed. Well, I deployed Coppermine with a plug-in that allows some albums to be removed from the thumbnail lists so that more revealing photos would not show up on the front page. Well, the plug-in either had a bug, or my changes to provide a user interface introduced a bug that prevented images in those albums from being displayed at all.

All fixed now, I think. If you notice something, please comment to this post and I’ll try to address it. Or check the contact page for the email address.

thanks,

Woops… Coppermine is fragile. See the comments.

Web Gallery – Choosing one

I’ve spent a couple of days studying various web gallery solutions.

Requirements
My requirements are:

  • Be suitable for a single person gallery. I’m not looking to build a photo portal, just my own galleries / albums.
  • Handle EXIF photo data.
  • Be easy to set up.
  • Be attractive, with the ability to change themes, or select themes. And to customize my own theme.
  • Be free, and open source.
