Photo gallery using PHP to dynamically create interactive pages of thumbnails representing subfolders and jpg images stored in a folder tree of any size, depth or arrangement
Each page encapsulates only the subfolders and photos contained within the current folder, contextually concatenated with all the others in the tree...dynamic, and on-the-fly: no database required...
A folder or sub-folder is represented by a "manilla-folder" thumbnail with badges showing the quantity of contents. Click/touch any folder image to proceed further into subfolders. Orange counters indicate the # of sub-folders; green counters indicate the # of images; both, together, indicate the # of sub-folders and the # of images contained, therein. A thumbnail of every image in the current subfolder is automatically created if it does not already exist, each linking to a larger version in a touch-enabled fancybox 'lightbox'
Once you click/touch an image, you can then navigate through the sub-gallery in any of three ways:
Close the image-preview with the [esc] key, or with the X in the top-right corner
Navigation context (e.g., "breadcrumb trail", "link-back-to", etc.) is interactive at the top of the page
