As you can see in the latest daily dump of del.icio.us bookmarks I’m currently testing looking for a PHP gallery script which I want to use here. I’ve already tried quite a few but haven’t really found the right one for me yet. Gallery(2) would be really close, but the problem is, that the server I want to install the script on is running in safe_mode :-(
So the next script I wanted to give a try was coppermine, but it somehow felt a little bit to “feature-rich” for what I need.
What features do I want for my gallery?
Load friendly (only generate pages if necessary and also already create the thumbnails when uploading the image or when requested by the admin
Descriptions for images and albums
It should work if safe_mode is enabled on the server
RSS/RSS2/Atom feeds with thumbnails (only generated when an image is added or removed)
Images should be .htaccess protected and only accessible through the script itself
Since I couldn’t find a script that offers all that I started to write once again my own gallery. I hope that I will have something to upload here within a few days, right in time for holiday photos ;-)
