Re: Photo Albums…. omfg!!
@ Peterverkooijen: “Simple plugins that leverage established, mature gallery apps would prevent much of those upgrade dilemmas. Let Zenphoto and NextGen handle upload, compression, database storage, gallery creation, etc. The BP plugins then only have to provide ways to display images stored by those apps within the BP context.”
I completely agree. NextGen gallery is already an extremely advanced and mature gallery plugin. It seems to me that writing something new from scratch would both be a lot of work and never approach the functionality of a dedicated gallery plugin. If we could somehow use NextGen with BP in a way that is consistent within the BP context that would be great.
