Spawn of Cthulhu added a topic in IP.GalleryGallery Suggestion: Sort abums by filename, allow admin to rename filesFirst of all, I know IP Gallery renames files--it seems to me that keeping the original filename and adding additional characters woud make more sense (and be more search engine friendly). For example: my_image~01.jpg or something, instead of the post-321324355whatever.jpg filename that IP Gallery comes up with.
Anyway, assuming that was achieved, I think it would be useful if albums could be sorted by filename, and if files could be renamed by an admin.
For example, I currently use Coppermine Gallery (but would like to convert to IP Gallery), and in my gallery I enforce a strict filename policy--the filenames provide valuable search content, in addition to keeping the gallery organized alphabetically (the images' filenames have dates in them, so they're in chronological order when sorted alphabetically by filename).
IP Gallery doesn't seem to have this option, as you can only sort albums by rating, date uploaded, caption, views, member name, and comments.
I would think sorting alphabetically by filename would be an option other users could use as well?
