How do I establish unique Menu Items linking to Unique Photo Albums for users to view?
Asked by medicinemanlacrosse 2 months ago
I have two Menu items : Lacrosse Head Gallery and Lacrosse Gear Gallery. I am using SimGallery that allows users to upload photos to a category.
My goal is to have "Lacrosse Head Gallery Menu Item" link to a Lacrosse Head Photo Album and "Lacrosse Gear Gallery Menu Item" link to Lacrosse Gear Photo Album.
Overally I wish to funnel users to uploading certain images to certain categories..for all website visitors to view.
But it appears SimGallery does not have that capabilty.
How would I go about achieving this?

"My goal is to have "Lacrosse Head Gallery Menu Item" link to a Lacrosse Head Photo Album and "Lacrosse Gear Gallery Menu Item" link to Lacrosse Gear Photo Album."
Do you mean link to Lacrosse Head "Photo Category" or "Photo Album"? Are your users creating albums, or only site admins (that's why you are sure there'll only be 2 albums?)
In any case, as SIMGallery is a single extension, it is only possible to use a main menu item id throughout. However, it's actually possible to do what you want by modifying the com_simgallery/helpers/links.php file. Manually set the $itemid variable for each type of link based on your custom requirement.
