I’ve been messing around with a handful of different gallery scripts for a while now, and none have been able to do what I’ve been looking for. One came close, but with a few issues needing to be worked out still, has been left for later tinkering. Earlier this morning, and lets face it, you can’t get much earlier than 2 AM, I managed to do the one thing I’ve struggled to with all the galleries prior: embedding. I’ve found decent enough templates to test things with, but never the right gallery script to compliment them. At least until this morning.
I found the “Photo Gallery Builder” from flash-gallery.com and gave it a go. Needless to say, for what its intended purpose would become, it was the perfect solution to my searching. I needed something simple that a client could use, with a straight-forward, and easy way to embed the outcome into a webpage. This made things quick and easy while meeting those needs. I was able to create two separate galleries with the program, add the 5 or so lines of code to the template, and upload everything through FTP in under 3 minutes.
The results of this nice achievement can be found under the gallery section of “JJ Photography“. One portion is a simple LightBox viewer that came with the template, being used as the categorical landing page, while the two sub-galleries were made with this program. All that remains to be done, is some more experimentation with all scripts tested.
