Nice categories in wggallery module - And for other modules ?

Hi,
i discovered the wggallery module by ggoffy and i fund in this module a really interesting function.

The tab "categories" !
Resized Image

Resized Image

I find it great.
I would rather call it TAG than categories but the idea is there.
We can choose, for an album, or an image, several tags.
It can be used for research as well.

It would be cool to find this functionality on other modules (publisher? News, xmnews ...)

I come to my question:

As the structure was done to add a button with data to import to quickly see how the module works,
could we not add this TAG function on the new modules?

Re: Nice categories in wggallery module - And for other modules ?

Hi alain

the idea was that albums and images can be merged/linked with categories, because we can filter the data now, e.g. show me all albums/images with cats, wtih nature, and so on
you can also create blocks for different categories, and so on

of course tags are almost the same and I can use tags also for search, but it is easier to handle it if you have defined categories. And with defined categories you can decide what is available for the user. you have also no problem with typing errors as you have with "free" tags

and: wgGallery can handle tags additionally if you activate in the preferences :)

I dont understand what you mean ?

Haa, with users's albums, they could choose some predefined categories (by admins group) ?
Tag is open, so not clean for a nice search ?

Your module is amazing !
- Gallery types
- Album types
- Watermark
- Maintenance
- Import (for compatibility with tdmpicture + extgallery)
- Feedback
- Sample data
- So many parameters in preferences page

A huge work ! Well Done
