MikiY Content Management System
A custom content management system for the photographer’s site at http://mikiy.com.
The site consists of static HTML pages, most of which are generated by this workspace.
The workspace takes a list of folders, and writes HTML pages in them corresponding to the contents. Folders contain either photos or folders (category folders). Category folders can contain category folders.
Each photo gets an HTML page in which it is displayed. Each folder gets an index.htm page. Photo folder pages show a table of thumbnails, linked to their pages. Category pages show a table of thumbnails selected from their child folders, and linked to them.
A photo folder must also contain a folder named thumbs. This must contain corresponding thumbnail images. The thumbnail images have the same names as their large images, prefixed by a 2-digit number (1-9) that determines (row, column) where the thumbnail appears in the folder’s table. (Positions can be left empty.)
Each page carries a full breadcrumb trail.
Each photo folder also offers its contents as a slideshow.
