I have installed G2Bridge and Geeklog and Gallery2 software on my webserver. I am already using a gallery software, but I want to be able to use the MiniSlide show in the G2 software. I already have a ton of pictures on the server and I didnt want to add the same ones for a different gallery. Is there a way to create pointers from the originals to the G2Bridge database? I have already tried adding links in the album folders and manually inserting the information into the database tables, but no luck.
My thinking was I could copy all the links into the G2 folders and then load a flat file into the database with all the appropiate information. But it would never update the gallery page showing the newly added image.
Or an easier way, when creating a minislide show it asks for an albumID. Is there a way to put a folder location instead of an ID?
