Exclusive search on Keywords/Tags (Persons)


I'm not sure if other had this need, but I desperately needed to search on Fotos based on exclusive tag search.

Let me explain my point:
Lets say I have created a group tag for persons. Currently if you search by some person, lets say 'Alex' you will get as a result all the Photos were Alex tag is used. It will include also Photos where Alex and many other people are. But my need is sometimes (actually quite often) is to search only and only persons (tags) exclusively selected in the search. E.g. I would like to see only some persons and 2 particular persons on the picture and noone else. It makes much more easier, e.g. when you are preparing some photo extract for some particular need/e.g. printed album for a present or just for showing to someone only those photos where only he/or she is and e.g. some other person.

I have developed this functionality in my own installation and it is working like a charm. But I dont have any Idea how to develop this as an extension or how to possibly process with this as a feature request. I could provide all the code changes I have done and demo the functionality, but I want to know how to proceed.

Now I need to every time (depending on the update) to install my changes. Approx 6 different files.

I love piwigo and would like to improve it with this feature. I think this kind of exclusive search is really cool and it is one reason why I choosed Piwigo as I knew that I could develop this myself...

With respect

It's usually not a great idea to modify the core files, because as you say it makes upgrades a bit of a pain. :-)

I'm a bit confused about your feature though; could you explain more? It sounds like you want to be able to search for just those photos that have all of a given set of keywords, is that right? But that's built into Piwigo by default isn't it?
