Thread: Anyone here keeps a photo blog?

    Default Anyone here keeps a photo blog?

    I came across a few recently and was very impressed by their dedication to photography. Some even have this a photo a day thingy on their website. Anyone here doing that as well? I find this real inspiring.

    Hey Falcon,

    Any idea if the ones you'd seen are running on mySQL or are they XML based?

    Maybe the Clubsnap admins should make BLOGs available to the Clubsnap webspace subscribers to include in their sites!

    don't think that Clubsnap servers support/provide mySQL services... do they?

    i'm not sure. u have to ask the admin. Gallery 1.3.3 doesn't make use of mysql. so they might not provide. Anyway, my advise to you if you are going to use blogger is to back up ur template. i was using blogger before i switch to movabletype. blogger always have down time and worse still, they lost my CSS template. that make me moved to movabletype.

    Din know u need to know so much to do a photo blog. I thought it is like an online photo journal and can be coded with normal html. Seems like u need to let visitors leave comments to be considered a photo blog?

    i thought you mention a photoblog

    PhotoBlogging is like writing diary with a photo to accompany it. Of coz you can code with normal HTML but it will be too tedious. hence a blogging s/w will come in handy as you only need to set the formatting once (as in template) and all the dates/time stamp are done for you. you do not need to care about the fomatting blah blah blah.. comments are optional. if you juz wanna simply wanna post pix, i would recommend gallery which is a very good photo showcasing piece of s/w.

    you can use other blogging s/w to use as a photoblog. free services like www.livejournal.com or www.deadjournal.com will be nice but u need a webhost to hotlink your pictures.
