i have a Drupal 7 site and want to generate a image gallery.

My requirements:

  • Multi File Upload
  • one folder per Gallery
  • only accessible for authenticated user

I tried plup and multiupload_imagefield_widget for multi file upload. This works fine except for the one folder per gallery requirement. All files are stored in the same folder.

Do you have any advices on how to achiev this goal?

  • Media + The DEV version of Media Browser Plus + Plupload would get you pretty close I think. – Clive Mar 7 '12 at 13:19
  • plupload uploads everything in the same directory. And i cant create Folders in media Browser Plus – jussi Mar 7 '12 at 13:54
  • Yes you can, use the DEV Version! – Clive Mar 7 '12 at 13:57
  • I installed the dev version. could you give me a hint, where i can define a new folder while creating a new gallery? – jussi Mar 7 '12 at 20:26
  • There's no integration with media gallery specifically (that I know of) but you can navigate to admin/content/media/folder_list to add/manage the folders. – Clive Mar 7 '12 at 20:50

I've got the same problem like Jussi and i tried to set up a system with the himuesgallery module, the upload via ftp works great and you can build a folder system. I tried to integrate the image folders in Drupals Private Dir and the result is that i can't see any picture anymore ... may i configured somehing wrong, but this seems not to be a solution. May a module to restrict access to another folder help.

A long time ago i tried the media module and there was some other problems... See also the Media Issues or the statement of the authors:

Known Issues

Private files: There are several issues in Media and Drupal core when the private file system is used. While these issue are being investigated and fixed, the use of the File lock module is highly recommended.

So my answer is: No, there is currently no working gallery that reachs your aims.

Media DEV + Media Browser Plus DEV + Plupload would get you pretty close I think.

There's no integration with media gallery specifically (that I know of) but you can navigate to admin/content/media/folder_list to add/manage your list of folders. Once you've done that you'll be able to sort your uploads into the various folders using the normal media browser.

  • Media managment works now, but still expierencing some bugs. For instance, i cannot create a gallery. Trying now different versions. – jussi Mar 8 '12 at 11:33
  • Yeah there are some issues with it (being in dev), it might be worth checking the issue queue to see if you can spot patches for the problems you're having – Clive Mar 8 '12 at 11:35
