Opening Individual Photos in a Magazine Gallery to Comment/Like and Say Hello to these Newcomers


This week we’ve put two articles with huge galleries online. Which showed us one problem: what if you wanted to comment or like photo 45/100 of a gallery? What would be the easiest way to do so?

Take a look at the sample gallery below: above the photo there are several links: “previous photo”, “next photo”, “open this photo” and “show all photos”. The “open this photo” link is new, clicking it will open a new browser window or tab (depending on your settings) with the detail view of this very photo (if there is one).

The gallery above shows newcomers who registered this month and have already uploaded some very nice photos – give this new function a try and show them a warm welcome to our community!

    I think that under the photo there might be a number with comments (the more comments, the warmer the number color) and same with likes. When you hit the comments icon/number - they are expanded. No need to reinvent the UI wheel, but just to make it sexy, stylish enough yet compact and practical :)

    @breakphreak: i like the idea – but problem would be: there are 100 photos and every time somebody adds a comment or like to one photo the cache becomes invalid and needs to be created again… and this would slow down the site. but still: i agree, this would be nice!

    Nice! I was missing this feature! I thought we could have something like this when we opened up a album allowing to see all the pictures on it at this visible size.
    Good job! Cheers!
