Hi, I have a collection site with 21,000 JPG images organized into 2,000 groupings. The JPGs in each grouping varies from 1 to 150. The groupings may be sub-divided. I am trying to set all the images up in a Warehouse arrangement so the main site is more manageable and it operates faster on more devices. I have upgraded to RW8. It appears that most of the options for using warehoused images is using some stack. I have been experimenting with Pro Gallery2 and others. I have some questions:
- I think the latest version of PHP is 7.3.5. The latest version that is available on the control panel of my host company (HostMySite) is 5.6. I have read in other posts that not having the latest version of PHP may not work with some stacks. Is this a critical issue that I need to sort out with the hosting Co.?
- The users access the images by one of the grouping names. Is there a way that I could load up all the image in a certain category without entering all the individual addresses ? Even if I have to include each individual address , is there a way to group them in a folder or something that would allow one group to be displayed together?
- I understand the theory of warehousing images but come up short when trying to apply stacks to come out with the images in the desired grouping and arrangement. Could someone go through the process step by step?
Thanks, sorry for the newbi questions.
