I think I will build my photosite from scratch. It will be like this this:
You see it will have only one column with a top menu. My question to this is, how do I get the photo category blocks on the frontpage. with links to thumpnail pages of every album.
Also I will use only the forum and maby the chat not more for now.
I think this will be a challenge.

Harry,

Glad to see you're persevering! There's always a challenge.

Have a look at my Minimal, where I copied the display from "Fotografia".

Not sure if that is what you want, but inspection of the code via the dev tool might give you an idea of how I went about it …!!

Good luck.

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

You could custom build a block to extract categories for display or you could use comcode to iframe the zone for  gallery categories I imagine. I think with ocPortal there is probably at least a half a dozen different ways to do this (or nearly anything) its all a question of level of effort and skill for some options as well as preference for others.

I think I have found a good base for the site. Oke I miss for now the security option to prevent right-click on photo's.

The balance between public and private albums I think is now better organized. Members can now make main theme group own albums therein.

I am really happy to have you back Harry and glad you're finding ways to make ocPortal conform to your needs rather than switching to that pigwi stuff or whatever it was called. I think in the long run you and your users will be much happier.

Thank Duck, yes I think also. Oke there are some small issues like the upload and some other specific photographic options. But I think that V 10 will give us more possibilities.

I think you've done great with your last example, Harry!

It is good to see how you are still trying to fit your idea of the perfect photo site within the potentials of the ocPortal's engine.

Thanks Jean, It was you from Canada thus who visited.. :)

Yes it has be simple for users and visible for visitors. Its not always simple to find a good balance between both of them. But we are on the right way.

A update to this story, with the right permissions setup, my members can also upload to the theme gallery groups also. With using different usergroups its possible to make some area's private, this is also for the forums (community).

So I can really say to potential new users of ocPortal, nothing is unpossible, but you have to try and look what you want to realize. For my it's a framework to build someting I need. :)
