    Unhappy Editing Photo Gallery Content

    Hello everyone, I've created a website using Dreamweaver (VANESSA G BAKER - PHOTOGRAPHE). It's a photographer website, so the most important thing for the photographer is to be able to edit the gallery content.

    I just want something simple, where you go on a page, let's say for example vgbphoto.com/admin. You loggin, and then you can upload picture in a selected gallery, and it would automatically create the thumbnail and then add the photo to the gallery. What would be the simpliest way to do this?

    I've tried many CMS, and it seem I would always need to re-create the website in the CMS, so I can be able to update specific content. Like I said, I would like something simple, with a simple layout, just for the picture, the other pages on the website remain the same.

    Please help me! Thank you!

    Well, there's the right way to do this, which will take longer and be more difficult now, but easier in the long run, or there's the "easy" way, which will take almost no time right now but will inevitably end with you having to fix it every time they try to make updates.

    The easy now way: Use a "drop-in" CMS like CushyCMS. It'll let you define editable portions of the page that the client can edit. This is exceedingly easy for the client to screw up, translating into either you having to fix it all the time, or the client being angry at you for giving them something so clunky and difficult for them to use.

    The easy later way: Recode around a CMS, like Wordpress. I've done a similar type of site, and you can make it very easy on them by creating a category for the gallery page, creating a page for that category and making the WP loop spit out the gallery code as required. I used an unordered list, which worked quite well. The client was quite happy with how easy it is to use.
