folioGallery - drop in PHP gallery
What is it?
folioGallery is an easy to use gallery written by Harry G of foliopages.com. Just drop it on your PHP web server and edit
foliogallery.php to point the
$mainFolder variable to the location of your pictures you want hosted. If you are like me, this makes it super easy to turn your pile of home pictures into a browsable website in just a few minutes!
I found out that when I tried to drop this into my home picture active, it could not handle thousands of pictures in a single album. I dove into the code and fixed it up, then published my updated version on Github here. I also changed the pagination to be page numbers instead of bullets and tweaked the layout a bit.
