    Point gallery to media folder

    First off thank you for the starter kit it will solve most of my issues out of the box.

    However we heavily use photos on our site and previous sites would bulk upload to the media section in Umbraco and then point the gallery page to display all photos in that media folder.

    Is this something that would be possible with your site?

    This is what we installed on our old site to get it working in our current site... which is versions old hence the update!

    At the moment, it unfortunately does not support such functionality. Images are distinct nodes under the "Images" grouping node, which have a name (which is used as title) as well as one or more categories assigned to them.

    Implementing a "bulk" image gallery would require me to essentially create a new section (like a "Bulk Image Gallery") with no categories, where the editor could select a whole media folder or multiple images.

    Alternatively, I could "extend" the default behavior by adding a media picker on the section, so an editor could add a group of images (assigning the same category on every one of them, logically) to the existing distinct image nodes (if any).

    It's a very good idea, unfortunately time is very limited so to be honest I can't see it getting implemented as soon as you may need it.
