Imagefield Gallery is a module that's been around since shortly before Drupalcon Boston. I created it with the intent of making gallery management for an existing site easy for single nodes. Since that time others have used it for their own sites, and have extended it to work with proprietary gallery types that have not been contributed back. I would like very much to introduce the drupal community at large to imagefield gallery and encourage them to help develop it in a direction that could be beneficial for ALL of drupal, not just a small subset.
As stated above, imagefield gallery's primary purpose is to create galleries on a node from an existing imagefield. The new 2.x version cleans up the admin, and is striving to squash some old bugs, and add new features. In development is the ability to do node references, as well as a new gallery type. Imagefield Gallery makes creating new gallery types pretty easy and straight-forward. These gallery types are re-usable in a large number of instances and allow the site administrator to customize gallery types per content type.
- Current Capabilities
- What I'd like to see donated by the community
- What about D6?
- What could the future hold?
Ultimately the objective of this session is to introduce Drupal at large to the Imagefield Gallery module, and show them what it can do for them. With some help I believe imagefield gallery can fill a significant void in the current Drupal codescape and give Drupal a varied and significant gallery system upon which to draw.
