I need assistance finding a good image gallery extension. I currently use Phoca Gallery, but it requires too many menu items for a clean looking site. Here is my issue:
- I have 4 major image groupings, call them gallery, beads, venue, and drawings.
- In each of those there are 15 individual years worth of images, each year in their own folder.
- I need a way to have a Joomla! menu for just the four groupings, and when a user clicks on one of them it takes them to a listing of the years for that group only, then they can click on a particular year and to go the images for that year within that group.
I tried making the actual folders (categories) in Phoca that hold images have parent categories, but when I make a menu item for list of categories it shows all the folders with images, not just the four parent folders.
Am not opposed to purchasing a top quality gallery extension if that is the only recourse, but could sure use some suggestions for getting things streamlined.
