I have written a small hack to play more with a nice feature of Coppermine, the gallery script I am using here : the keywords you give to each picture.

The script adds, to the search page for example, a list of all keywords used, and the number of pictures for each (see my search page). I thought it made keywords very similar to the "tag" feature you have in Gmail or, if that makes sense to you.

The script

Get the hack here :

Right click the .txt, Save as "keywords.php", then drop it in your Coppermine directory, or copy paste the colorized version into a blank file (do not wget the .php, it's colorized html !)

Use it

I suggest you add the keywords list it to your search page. To do so, edit search.php with a raw text editor and add the following somewhere near the end, just before the line pagefooter(); for example :

  1. include('keywords.php');

And now ?

And now, tag'em all !
