    I found an excellent gallery plugin over here: http://www.wildbits.de/mygallery/#english

    but I don't have anywhere near the coding skills to get it working in MU. I don't think it's that important whether we can get this to work in MU-plugins or not, but the functionality is near-perfect for an MU install.

    Cool.

    I think that I'll probably "encourage" the use of flicker, photobucket, or similar.

    I know for a couple of my standard WP sites, I've been using the Coppermine plugin, which for a single install is very nice. I don't think the guy who wrote it is doing much with it anymore though, and opting to write his own in his spare time.

    I'm currently porting mygallery to my mu setup. it's pretty good yes. I think it's important to have an embeded gallery in your system, particularly if you plan to have a "premium" account or something people pay for, because room is quickly filled on the disk with images and this leads users to want to extend it ;-).

    that's great news quenting! Will you be releasing your code to the community?

    I can't really say... I'm supposed to release plenty of stuff I made already, thing is, my architecture is somewhat special so my plugins would need sometimes some extensive modifications to be regular-MU compatible, and even more particularly from the file storage perspective (I'm trying to move uploaded files to a place where there wouldn't be any sql query needed to load them, so I can put them behind a lightweight HTTP server), so everything that's related to uploaded images is likely to be quite different on my site and on a vanilla MU.

    Q,
    sounds like you've got the same bug I've got.

    Hard coding what you need. ;)

    Quenting, would you be able to point a curious cat to the parts of the files that need changing?

    I might be able to figure out, or maybe someone else here could.

    Lol indeed :-). There's plenty of stuff i'd be glad to release, only it's dirty and it's specific, and everytime i get the choice between making a plugin clean and mu-compatible or working on my site, I end up doing the latter :-/. I don't even have a clean mu 1.0 test env., and just setting this up is discouraging me already...

    hmmm...dirty and specific sounds better than nothing at all.

    it's times like this I wish we had a test mu bed where the wpmu admins could test and tweak on vanilla mu installs.

    I'm right there with you Q.

    Although the "majority" of edits I've made to the core files (excluding sign-up and login) have been so that the primary domain could be a sub-domain, and the sites when created could be on the same level subdomain.

    It hasn't been much, surprisingly. Only a few minor edits to a couple functions in wpmu-functions, and then sign-up.

    Of course I've also added a captcha to the sign-up process, as well as a registration agreement that has to be checked in order to sign up.

    I did keep track of most of my changes, at least in the core files, so when it's time to upgrade I can compare what's changed in the files I've modded.
