Hello,

Is it possible to have uploaded photos further catergorized into albums or folders? Reason being, it's a little daunting going through a really long list of photos when inserting photos into blog posts, and it would be easier if the list included only photos from a certain day/week/location/etc. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

When the photo gallery system was set up, we purposefully skipped any formalized album/folder structure, instead considering the tagging mechanism to have greater flexibility. You can tag all your photos that should be in a distinct "album" with a unique tag, and then link to the gallery for that tag as the "album".

However, that doesn't do you any good for inserting photos into a blog entry... :|

I do know the whole issue of inserting photos into blog entries being problematic has come up before, and it should certainly be on the todo list. I don't know how high up on the list it is though, but yeah, the current setup is far from ideal...

This is one of my biggest day-to-day ("while actively blogging") pet peeves. A month into my last trip I resorted to renaming all my photos with a code prefix just so I could have a hope of recognizing which of the dozens/hundreds of photos in the drop-down I wanted to insert in my blog entry...and even then it's a trial-and-error process.

It shouldn't be this difficult to navigate. I'd love to see this made easier, somehow.
