The simpler media website CMS
I have now converted my third image collection from the old Menalto Gallery 2 (not supported now for many years but still an excellent database if you don't have to conform with PHP higher than 5.4) as I want to have everything running with PHP 7.2 or higher. I chose Zenphoto over Piwigo because it is folder based.
The the collection has a lot of albums: a collection of documents - each folder has only 2 or 3 pics - 6000 odd folders, 18000 odd pics.
I notice that the admin Albums is very slow indeed although the front side runs quickly enough.
I see you have had a comment or two about this in the past.
I had a look and it seems to me the slowness is caused by the collection having a lot of albums and the fact that each time the Albums page is called up in admin it compiles a complete listing of folders for the 'move' function.
On this system the topmost album produces an html page with something like 17 000 lines, almost all of that the 'move' options.
Would it be possible to have the 'move' function only to be called when necessary?
This, I think, would speed up the page no end, and in my experience of these databases 'move' is only occasionally required. I am not sure how it could be done - probably easy to leave it off the Admin Albums page, but how to make it available when needed?
Just a thought,
