> Hi,
> I once did a picture gallery for forrest. You can find the result at 
> When the plugin system came around I've started to adapt it to the plugin 
> system, but never came around to finish it. It is almost working, but right 
> now I don't have the time to finish it, because I have to write my 
> PhD-Thesis. I've attached the last version to this e-mail.
> It works like this:
> -Uses the image directory generator from cocoon to get a list of images
> (directory structure is a dir with the following dirs small, big, preview 
> (where the pictures can be found in different sizes).
> -gallery.xsl transforms this into valid forrest-html, which is rendered 
> according to the selected skin
> -To display one picture gallerybild.xsl is used. The version in the archive 
> tries to use a template.xml as template, where only the picture name of the 
> picture is substituted and then skinned. This dosn't work yet... So I've also 
> included the old version where everything is hardcoded.
> Some more ideas I had for the gallery, is to have a file comment.xml where you 
> can put in comments about each picture, which are displayed under the full 
> picture (maybe in the format which digikam from KDE you can edit 
> your comments comfortably). Maybe also tooltips on each preview image with 
> the size and other information added (would be great if the directory 
> generator from cocoon could interpret exif...)
> Do whatever you want with code, I thereby license it under the BSD-License.
> Hope this helps,
> Jörg
