Building a Gallery with Kirby?

Apologies if this is a little vague but I am sitting here trying to decide whether I can migrate or in fact rebuild another of my sites using Kirby. I have everything else figured out but the gallery.

It is a history site, World War 2 related. Essentially what I have is:

Gallery page that displays each album and within each is many (hundreds of) images.

Effectively when each image is uploaded around 6 fields need to be populated with various details of the image.

Of course, the end result is that you click on the gallery, choose an album and view the images.

Thinking off the top of my head I am seeing:

Blueprint for the gallery, you can create albums then
Blueprint for the image created in the relevant album that uploads the image and has the fields required for each image.
From there I can display, search and do whatever is needed on the public side.

Is that the sensible approach or is there another way to go about this?



Yes, that would be the way to go, I think.

Thanks Sonja, it’s one of those ‘seems too easy to be right’ situations :slight_smile:

But when I think about how I did the original site using Laravel the process was exactly the same but significantly more work to build forms, deal with controllers, models and so on.
