Hi there. I want to make my galleries searchable by the gallery title. Essentially, what I want to do is create a search form which will query the DB and do something like this:
SELECT title FROM wp_ngg_gallery WHERE MATCH (title) AGAINST ('*$keywords*' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AND exclude = '0' UNION SELECT title FROM wp_ngg_gallery WHERE title = gid MATCH (name) AGAINST ('*$keywords*' IN BOOLEAN MODE) AND exclude = '0'
and from this, display galleries with relevant titles using PHP. But um… not a coder. Heh. ^^;
Now, I THINK that all you need to do is just re-insert whatever gid pops out back into the nggallery shortcode using PHP, but I’m not sure it’s as simple as that (or even how to do that, to be honest).
