|Summary||0000031: Calendar category|
Year-month-day categories better to be displayed in a calendar DHTML widget rather than in a tree.
Examples of available DHTML calendars.
* http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex6/dcalendar.htm [^]
working; Prev. and Next should be replaced with arrows and direct to non-empty years or months;
* http://www.dansteinman.com/dynduo/en/calendar.html [^]
seems not working, but good colors.
Please tell if you'd take up implementing this soon. Otherwise, I will have to do it, because my photo-tree is growing rapidly.

|OK, I'm already working on it since I've found your idea great ! Hiw do I see the feature : calendar is a special category (like X most seen, or recent pictures). No tree in categories menu, but 2 navigation bar displayed : years and months. For each month, display of a picture per day when pictures were made available. If you click on a day, it's like searching all pictures added on the date.|
Thank you! I look forward to seeing it so much. The adding date should be a searchable category, indeed. I hope it can have a parent category so that to give all the items added to the _parent_ and not to the whole gallery.
Meanwhile, I've come to realise that a DHTML calendar representation of a year-month-day folder tree may be needed for other catalogs I have as well. There appears to be the most elaborate one, "The Coolest DHTML Calendar" (http://dynarch.com/mishoo/calendar/). [^] For example, through callback function it can dispaly "special days" with special style. I will be playing with it.
Thanks again, and keep us posted

what do you mean exactly ?
For the moment, the feature exists as I imagined it. There is no "year-month-day" tree in the categegories menu, but I might be a good idea, I think I'll add it too.
I've decided to only show calendar element (years, months, days) that have pictures, not the other ones. If the 2004-06-06 has no new picture, it won't be shown in calendar.

> what do you mean exactly ?
Will clicking on a non-empty day search all pictures added on the day to some _selected_ category or the search will be over the whole gallery?
> Will clicking on a non-empty day search all pictures added on the day to
> some _selected_ category or the search will be over the whole gallery ?
How would it be possible to search only in some selected categories ? Of course it is over the wholme gallery (depending on the connected user, you have permissions...)
In fact, I might understant what you mean... What do you think of this suggestion :
1. click on the special category "calendar" : you enter in a category with 2 navigation bars, the first one is the years, the second is the months of the selected year. Only years and months with pictures available are shown.
2. choose a year. By default the last year is selected. In the menu, under the special category "calendar", a tree appear, with only years. In the thumbnails table, a thumbnail (random) is chosen to represent each month.
3. choose a month : each day of this month is represented by a random picture. In the menu, each day of the month is shown.
4. choose a day : now you have a list of categories where pictures were added this day, and in bonus a special category, a non-category in fact, were pictures are not owned by a category in particular.
5. choose a category : all pictures of this category of this day are shown. If the special "non-category" is selected, all pictures of this day are shown.
Your feeling ?

Yes I think that's the right way to do date-searching!
Let me just mention why I was thinking about a DHTML calendar. That's just another view on a date-based gallery. Suppose one adds his photos to year-month-days folders and has the option expand_all; then the category menu would become rather long, listing all those (non-empty) years, months and days. The DHTML calendar would be just a neater way to _show_ it.
You have solved a more general task, actually. So thanks a lot, and please show off the example when it's ready!
