Monthly Photo Archive?

Hello Creators, is a monthly photo archive possible in any way?

There are over 5000 photos within my network, and a few of my members are worried about photos being "buried" in just a few days.

It is true that a lot of times, interest is lost after a while of going through the gallery. A way to go back to a certain month, and view the photos that were uploaded at that time, would be amazing.

Is this at all possible? Can you please help me to achieve this member request?
Thank you Creators! Take care!

Sincerely,

Damien

  • You could do it with many tags as usual and the search function, of course you would have to add a month and year tag and then make a text box to the search results for that month and year

    http://yournetworkURL/photo/photo/search?q=2011+june

    • But then the dates would need to basically be entered manually by members, so the tag system will work... most of them likely won't do that.

      It needs to be able to back date, so I can provide links in a list of dates.

      Ning API must contain "date uploaded" information on photos, no?

      How would I reference/call to that?

  • I'm not a pro web developer, and to be honest, anywhere in this Ning Documentation, I'm completely confused.

    But I do have some intelligence in this noggin of mine! :)

    As you can see in this photo, the upload date apparently can be referenced as read only... perfect..

    Now what? Lol. Times like these remind me of just how much of a rookie I really am.

  • My thoughts...  :-)

    The tagging idea is a good one.  The problem is that many will not tag their photos properly.  A solution would be a program that the NC could trigger at will which would go back over recently added photos and automatically add two tags with the month and year the photo was uploaded onto the site.  I did something similar once for a client who needed all their blog's tags updated.

    Once you have the photos properly tagged, then you can create a series of links or items in a drop down box which will display the photos from the selected month.  Actually, the app could generate these links or list items automatically as well, adding each new month as it arrives.

    Contact me if this sounds interesting and we can see if my fee is in your budget.

    Thanks!

  • Try working with http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes.

    You can crab the rss feed & paste it into module using "fetch feed". From this point on there is a list of ways you can filter what you want then crab the code it gives you & paste it back onto your site.

    I'm just learning this myself so I can't give you specifics but there are many video tutorials you can watch.

    • Great idea Scott, thank you. however the problem there lies in, there are no RSS feeds for albums, or featured albums. Which means Jquery and javascript are likely the only solution. I may have found a solution, awaiting a message.

      • You can turn any page into rss feeds using: http://open.dapper.net

        It's fairly simple to figure out as it walks you thru it. (however it only works with your ff browser)

        So use your search term from your /photos page, search & grab the url code from your searched page and paste it to open.dapper.net

        Oh, and I'd like to hear what you came up with.

  • Hey Damien, There's a site called Cooliris that works awesome with vids & pics. It's the coolest way to show of your pics. But for some reason Ning has restrictions on our photos  vids but they are working on it. You can view the thread here.

    If Ning can help out with this, this will be an incredible feature for our photos!!!
