Phoca Gallery
It's great component, but it has some discomforting issues.
When You want to create new category - you can't create new folder for this category so easy. So, You must do:
1 Go back to "add pictures" section
2 Here You can create new folder
3 Go back to category section - and create new category
4 Go back to picture category - now U can upload picture to new category.

So creating new folder for category should be in category section- not in picture section.

Other thing is : when You want to "upload picture" - You must choose folder to upload. After uploading - the folder change to default name. So You must choose him once again - and now U can add the picture.

And other thing : Many templates has problem when there is "clear:both" taggs in css and php files like in phoca. On 10 templates 2 looks horrible.

But it's only few things, all other are great, so i won't write it here (to much writing like for my english ;) )
Owner's reply

Hi, thank you for your comment.

See http://www.phoca.cz/forum where I describe why there is an advantage of having two independent layers: File layer (image files on your server) and Database layer (image names in your database). If you are creating category, you don't need to create folder on your server.

I don't understand this:
"You must choose folder to upload. After uploading - the folder change to default name. So You must choose him once again - and now U can add the picture" ... please create new topic in Phoca Forum, so we can solve it


"Many templates has problem when there is "clear:both" taggs in css and php files like in phoca"

Phoca Gallery uses valid CSS and HTML code (there are some exceptions because of supporting all possible browsers) but this should not be problem for template which keeps standards. There is no other way how to end float boxes where images are displayed (clear:both).

But of course I can take a look at it, maybe we can find some solution (if the template is correctly made) to solve such problem. So the same as before. Some topic with link to site where this problem occurs in the forum would help.
