need a little help with a PHP gallery script I'm making

Recommended Posts

I'm making a PHP image gallery script, I got all the basic stuff done (make the thumbnails and the txt files for information) and it desplays them correctly, but now I want to add another feature, multiple galeries on 1 file

What I'm thinking is that if you put the information in the URL (www.site.com/gallery?gallery=cars) it will go only to that gallery, but if it's blank it will display all galeries. I get get it to display different galleries with the information passed through the URL but I can't think of a way to have it display all galeries.

Here is the code I am using for the gallery, it's not the neatest because I had to play around with it a bit to make the thumbnails work right, but if you want to look at it to see how I'm doing it and give me some help on hwo to make it display all the images i'd appriciate it (this cod edosen't have the multiple gellery through the URL code in it yet because I don't know how to do it all.
