I just found vBa Gallery and I'm really excited to see something like this. I find PhotoPost to just be a nightmare, and an expensive one at that.
My question is this: Are there any limits on how far you can push the design of the Gallery home page? I have it set up now so that most of the page is actually static, using a left column with links to other static albums. Here is the link: http://www.myjeeprocks.com/photopost/index.php
Can something like this be done? Can anyone here lend any advice? TIA so much, I am looking forward to dumping PhotoPost forever! :P
Ok, well I can live with that. Thanks for your quick response. I read the description and feature list for this app, but it doesn't say if it integrates with the current forum database or if I'll need to configure a new one?
So, I can install this gallery into a different directory and get it all nice and pretty before I run the PhotoPost import script? Just making sure, because like you said, it will probably take some time maybe this weekend.
Yeah, I ran it side-by-side with my PhotoPost installation for quite a while until I was ready to switch over. Photopost was in /photopost and Gallery was in /gallery. Install Gallery and run the import script so that you have data to work with. Then when you're ready to switch, re-do the import so it's all up-to-date.
You can install it into its own DB, or into the vBulletin DB. (I've done it both ways.)
