Installation

Like with Laravel 4 you need to install all the nessesary packages with composer:

composer install

Configure the database settings in app/config/database.php And migrate the database with:

artisan migrate

Change configuration of the gallery in app/config/filegallery.php, eg. set the Facebook App id for the commenting system and Google analytics id.

That should be it ;)


Albums

Albums will be created from the folders in the uploads folder. The foldername will be used as the albumname, and the folders will be renamed to a more webfriendly name (strip special characers and replace spaces with dashes).

Albums


Images

Images will be created from the imagefiles in the album folders. Don't worry about the names they will be renamed to more webfriendly names (strip special characers and replace spaces with dashes).

Images


Image descriptions

To create a description for an image, create a *.txt file with the same name as the imagefile, and write the description in that file.

Description


Album cover

To set an image from the album as the cover picture, create an empty *.txt file, and name it %imagefilename%_cover.txt

Ready file

To avoid starting import before you have all the files uploaded and ready, create an empty *.txt file named ready.txt to the uploads folder when you are ready to import the files.

Starting import

To start the import, make sure you have uploaded the files and created the ready-file. Then go to the route /import, eg. mywebgallery.com/import. It will be working some time depending on the size of the images you want to import ;)
