[Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Simple Image Filter (1 post)

    I thought I'd share a useful function I added. Hopefully Alex can add it to a future release, since its very simple and very useful.

    I have 1200 photos in my main gallery, and because google has indexed many of them I can't move them or break them up too easily (I had 800 before I started using nextgen) The plugin became unmanageable particularly when I wanted to add a tag, change a description or change a photo (and thus rebuild the thumb). Paging through 25 pages, having to keep them sorted. It was a royal pain.

    So I added a text field and a button called filter and I added a {$filter-clause} to get gallery. So now if I put "eggs" in the filter field it only displays filenames that include the word eggs.

    I contemplated adding a search function but it was just too complicated. This filter works nicely and saves me a bundle of time.
