Gallery3:Modules:custom fields

From Gallery Codex


Custom Fields module aims to provide a simple and intuitive way to add a custom set of (meta) fields to your Gallery Items.

Typical examples: Photographer name, season, scene, theme, color, etc but also supports counter/date/list types and so on.


Custom fields can be used to store additional information on any photo or album that otherwise would not fit nicely into title/description fields, or you just want to manage them in a dedicated place.

Features of first release candidate: - Supports multiple types of input: dropdown, radio, checkbox, freetext, integer

- Admin panel

 Admin can add/edit/delete custom fields from the admin panel, via intuitive management controls, without dealing with backend storage and such.
 Admin is able to predefine valid list of values for restricted input types (dropdown, radio, checkbox).
 Fields are sortable.

- Extension of info block:

 Custom fields that are mapped to an item can be shown in the sidebar, next to the photo.
 In here, data acts as direct link to search (search below)

- Extended Search:

 Data of custom fields can be searched (Simple single filter search or multiple filters linked with 'AND' operand)

- Custom fields can be filled at photo upload time as well as any time later on (using edit item).
