Simple PHP gallery with admin management
# April 20, 2013 at 2:04 pm
Here’s the thing, I’m making a small site, 3 subpages, not much of a content really.
The only advanced functionality this site needs to have is an image gallery.
I decided not to make this into WordPress solely because of the gallery since it would be an overkill.
Do you know any great scripts I could use? My desired functionality would be following:
* PHP script inside gallery subpage
* gallery would limit itself to img directory
* each time the page is loaded it returns the miniatures of every image file in that directory (is it even possible and reliable, on-the-fly minifying of images?)
* according to the previous point – I’d like either simplest functionality of simply putting images through FTP and I’m done or a simple uploading interface with login/password, like http://address.of.the.site/gallery/admin/
Any ideas? I guess for someone who’s experienced in PHP writing something like that is fairly easy, so I think it’s available somewhere.
Is it even a good idea to do something like that? I just think that using WordPress only to manage the gallery isn’t really a good idea… Or should just throw WP in and don’t care?
