I am looking for a simple PHP gallery with the following characteristics:
- Pure PHP
- Handle Subcategories
- Easily customizable
you could use a mysql database to store the location of the images on your ftp server. then use php to get the rows of the database and echo them out using a while statement.
you can either look into it further.
Here is a link to PHPAlbum, which make no use of anything except PHP (comes with an installer or the regular files to upload yourself)
Now if you're not completely against tiny bits of JS you have this tutorial (link) to create a simple pics gallery with PHP, but effects around pics are added from the loaded JS lib (which you can avoid and use the PHP code only) Have fun
