  1. Thanks for the input guys. Requinix - Yes this is why I thought it was a silly way of looking at how to do this. Basically my client wants a website pulling in all his photo shelter data, so I would typically run through and pull in all the galleries load the gallery title and key image. Then link each one to its own area via a GET request to get the gallery ID and pass in the images of each inner gallery. However I think this is my downfall of always using PHP when it comes to working on a project. QuickOldCar - Thanks for this I think this is the way to look at it either this way or via Ajax to load the data asynchronously. I can run one cURL request to get every gallery ID which is fast and pass it into a data attribute for each <li>. This would give me what I need to then pull in each <li>'s data via Ajax to append data. Thanks for the input guys I think not working on something of this scale before had me stumped as I am no pro and needed help of actually solving the issue before I even started. Greatly appreciated. Many Thanks Jamie
  2. Hi guys, I am having a little trouble getting my head around how to tackle an issue. I am working with an API :- https://www.photoshelter.com/developer/index/endpoints/public Connecting up to it no problem and getting the information via cURL is also no bother. The point is I am needing to loop through galleries to retrieve 400 gallery IDs so I can pass in the data I need so for example I execute my first cURL response which gives me all the gallery IDs from here :- /psapi/v3/collection/root/children Now then I need to run a foreach loop to get each gallery ID to pass to :- /psapi/v3/gallery/{gallery_id} /psapi/v3/gallery/{gallery_id}/key_image Now the problem is I am having to use cURL to get the JSON data from here too and then finally the last one :- /psapi/v3/gallery/{gallery_id}/images/{image_id} To get the gallery featured image. Now the first cURL works fine but when I introduce the others in foreach loops it cripples it on loading time, but looking through of course it would as its excuting cURL a ridiculous amount of times. Is there a better way of tackling an issue like this as I feel cURL and file_get_contents is the wrong way going about this. Normally it's one execution and I get all the data I have never worked with something like this before. I would show my code but I feel it is unnecessary at this point on the grounds of I do not think this is the most productive way of even looking at this Currently the only thing I can think of is creating a query string to execute via a CRON job that would execute twice a day to check through the galleries API at Photoshelter and add everything to a database that I need. Any information would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance Jamie
