Support » Plugin: FooGallery - Image Gallery WordPress Plugin » Auto-Add Galleries to Albums? Or Similar Album > Gallery Control

  • I love foo gallery and it’s my gallery plugin of choice – have it on many of mine and 30+ client sites.

    Is it possible to have any new gallery created automatically assigned to an album?

    Currently, getting a gallery into an album is a 2 step process. 1) Create gallery and then 2) go to album and add it. It’s not a clean process and many of my clients don’t fully understand, or forget the process (regardless of how many procedures we write for them. Even I agree that it would be nice to have an album that just gets automatically updated with any/all galleries.

    Or on a similar note, remove one of the 2-steps: Have an option on the Gallery Edit page, to add to Album(s), just like we are able to assign blog posts to blog categories, or pages to parents – each within their editor. This would give the user to add to album(s) in the same step/process, so he/she doesn’t have to go through a second set of steps to get a gallery to show in a particular album.

    I’d even pay for a plugin or a hack because I use FG on so many sites and see this such a valuable item to have.

    hey Blake,

    There are some really cool ideas here. I will discuss with the team in our weekly meeting tomorrow and add some of these items to the roadmap.

    I think having a few “Automation” options would be great

    Great, thanks!

    I’m actually working a WP site with a foogallery installed so took some screenshots:

    My first option is not unlike the WordPress Menu system that watches for new top level pages “Automatically add new top-level pages to this menu”. On FG, A particular album could have an option “Automatically add new galleries to this album”. Of course, the user could later remove it as if it were added regularly.

    Second option would be to include an Album selector within the gallery edit. Like this:

    Thanks again, your plugin is awesome!

    I just want to say that I think that the idea from @blakemiller for an album to include the option to “Automatically add new galleries to this album” is excellent.
