    Hi there, this script is amazing.

    Easy to install and make it work.

    The only thing I would like to do is adding a description, like in a box, to certain images to describe the picture and provide informations about it.

    Is this possible?

    I need your help...

    Will adding it in the "caption" area not suffice?
    If not, you'll need to simply add another column in the mysql db, and then tweak the code to store the content from a new form field to it.

    We've added this functionality pretty easily... Have a go!

    I think there are now an image name and a long desc in the nightlies. Check out if you're feeling adventurous. As for the "box", a little CSS would go a long way to achieving that.

    Hi guys,
    unfortunately I've spent an entire day working with php and mysql db but had no luck.

    My boss is now asking this feature and I need to have it or I'll have to start looking again around.

    I've also tried to add comments from admin end and erase the code on displayed pages so that what user sees is a description but I can't integrate the code.

    Step by step would be better.

    why don't you use caption field to describe the image ??
    you can easily get a box round it ....

    goto "gallery.php" @ line 194-198....

    if you are having the caption as the "name of the image" ... then you'll need to add a column to the database

    it should be something like this...


    ALTER TABLE plogger_pictures ADD desc MEDIUMTEXT AFTER caption;


    well I am not sure ... I have left the command line moved to "phpMySQL" ...
