ExpressionEngine: Creating a Photo Gallery

by Leonard Murphy | September 2008 | MySQL Content Management PHP

ExpressionEngine comes with a built-in photo gallery module included as part of the purchase fee. With the prevalence of digital cameras, having a place to upload and share photos on your website is a great feature of ExpressionEngine. In this article by Leonard Murphy we will:

  • Install the photo gallery module
  • Design our photo gallery to fit in with the design of the rest of our site
  • Make it easy to upload new photos, add comments and descriptions, and otherwise create a very functional gallery

On our website, we can have multiple photo galleries independent of each other (the photos are in a different folder; the gallery has a different URL) or we can have one gallery for all our photos, using categories to distinguish groups of related photos.
For the purposes of this article we are going to create only one photo gallery, but if desired the same principles can be followed again to create multiple galleries.
To keep our photo gallery visually interesting, we will be straying just slightly from our toast website theme, and will not be using our photo gallery to display slices of toast.
Let's get started!

Executing PDI jobs from a filesystem (Simple)

by Sergio Ramazzina | September 2013 | Open Source

In this case, the PDI job we are going to start is stored locally in the computer filesystem, but it could be anywhere in the network in any place that is directly accessible. You will learn how to start simple jobs both with and without a set of input parameters previously defined in the job.
