tag combos / public selection (4 posts)

    Can I define albums based on boolean combinations of tags? Like
    People AND OurUnit OR Cats AND TheirUnit

    Can I provide viewers with a way of selecting their own tag set to view?

    Are the answers documented somewhere?

    I'm guessing the lack of response means neither of these things are do-able?

    But a simple "No" from someone would be nice. Hears hoping!

    The 'gallerytag' option that NextGen uses in the URL can be passed multiple comma-separated tags and will show all pictures matching either tag. So the OR is taken care of, I don't know about the AND...

    Thanks Zefrem23.
    Unfortunately you need the combination of AND and OR to be flexible (or technically NOT and NOTAND = NAND does just as well but most folk are not familiar with this.) Effectively OR allows you to expand the list to a larger list, AND allows constraining the list to a shorter one. With both you can be selective, like my example.

    Anyone up for adding this feature?

    And what about user input to the selection process?
