    Hello,

    We've created a gallery page and while working on the display format of  the Image Libraries, we realized that we are missing something. We would like to have pictures in multiple "albums". One way to do that was to tag images, but then we werent able to show the categories or tags on the main page. Another way is to add multiple libraries. When we do that, we would like to have a landing page of sorts that displays all libraries (or albums) and then, when the user clicks on a library, we show all the pictures in that library. Right now, we can only get all the images to display at once on the Gallery main page. We would like to instead have the page display each library and for the user to select a library to see all the pictures inside. It would look like a page of photo albums from which you can click on any album and see all the pictures for that album.

    Any help in using a certain control or setting would be great. Thanks.

    Puneet.

    Hello Puneet,

    You can take a look at this posts Gallery List  and How do I get only the image library list to appear on a page that describes the steps you have to follow.

    Kind regards,

    See the link provided for code I have done http://clixsoftware.codeplex.com/. The gallery is setup as a control and using the Flowplayer Jquery Tools library. http://flowplayer.org/.

    You will need to register the controls within your sitefinity web configuration 
    <add name="Gallery Listing" section="ClixSoftware" type="ClixSoftware.Sitefinity.WebControls.Media.GalleryListing, ClixSoftware.Sitefinity.WebControls"
     description="Gallery listing." />
    in the toolbox section of the webconfig.file.

    This will make it available for selecting from the toolbox. It has 2 modes 
    1. Displaying the galleries
    2. Another displaying the photos for the galleries.
