First, thanks for couch ! I use it for many years... ant the evolution is great !!
I have few question...

There is projects with gallery and each projet have a categorie

- Photo
-- project photo 1
-- project photo 2

- Peinture (painting)
-- project peinture 1
-- project peinture 2

- Dessin (drawing)
-- project dessin 1

1 project = 1 gallery + 1 description global + 1 image global + 1 categorie

In admin, i need to manage categories : add/delete/sorts (Photo/Peinture/Dessin/...)
and to add project and choose categorie for this project.

I tried several things :

1. With repeatable

Code: Select all
<cms:template title='Projets' clonable='1'>
   <cms:editable type='relation' name='projets_categories' masterpage='categories.php' has='one'/>
   <cms:editable name='projet_description' label='Description du projet' type='richtext' />
   <cms:repeatable name='my_gallery' >
           <cms:editable name='my_img' label='Image' type='image' show_preview='1' />
        <cms:editable name='my_img_caption' label='Legende' type='text'  />
      <cms:editable name="my_picto" label="Pictogramme"  opt_values='Oui' type='checkbox' />

Code: Select all
 <cms:template title='Categories' clonable='1' order='5' icon='menu'>

It's perfect : when i create a project i can choose my categorie
BUT... I have to upload images one by one

2. With gallery
Code: Select all
 <cms:template title='Projets2' clonable='1' dynamic_folders='1' gallery='1'>
         <cms:editable name="gg_image" ...

In admin, i create empty gallerys for the categorie, then projects in each categories.

I don't find it intuitive for the client :
For add a project
- one click for the template (left menu in admin)
- one click on "manage folder"
- one click for "add new"
and for create a new categorie...
and i didn't find how use "k_up_down" in the list folder view (admin). it's possible ?
(for sort categorie and sort projet in a categorie...)

3. The ideal solution :
- simple management of categories with a clonable page.
- use gallery for massive upload AND a custom view of folder's administration for assignate a categorie (with a dropdown like in the first solution)

is it possible to use "config_form_view" and relation for gallery's folder ? (and not for each image...)

Would you have some advice ?

Thanks and sorry for my bad english :?
Hi :)

I suggest you please try the following -

1. Use a clonable template (projects.php) for projects.
2. Instead of using a separate template for categories, use the 'folders' of projects template itself to create the category hierarchy.
3. For the large number of images, use a separate gallery template (gallery.php) and link it to products.php as shown in the following thread -

Your product.php should now look something like this -
Code: Select all
<cms:template title='Projets' clonable='1' dynamic_folders='1'>
   <cms:editable name='projet_description' label='Description du projet' type='richtext' />

By using 'reverse_relation' as shown above, it should be very manageable for the client to have a full-fledged gallery for each individual product page.

Would this help? Do let me know.

I followed your advice and it works... but i did not manage to customize admin folder list view and admin folder form view :(
So i kept another clonable page for my "category"... and it's fine.

Thanks !
