Blog Organization, Photo Galleries, Etc.

At some point maybe I’ll figure out a way to maintain a photo gallery on the blog via some widget or something. For the time being, I am trying to keep things semi-organized via the use of tags on posts.

If you look down near the bottom of the right-hand sidebar, there is a so-called “Tag Cloud” that contains all of the tags I’ve used on the various posts to date. If you want to find posts with photos in them, click on Photos. However, be aware that the results page that loads after you click on each tag will contain only a list of summarized posts; you’ll have to click on each individual item to load the full post and the photo(s) contained in it.

Nearby Piazza Venezia and the Roman Forum

I also still maintain photo galleries on the site I haven’t uploaded anything there for a couple of months but hopefully I’ll get back to that soon.

    I don’t know about WordPress, but Blogger lets you create tabs at the top of your blog. I wonder if that sort of function would be helpful in creating a photo gallery? You can see what I’m talking about at the top of my blog, the tabs labeled Home, About, Saint Pages, Book Reviews, etc…

    • That’s what I’ll look into eventually. Because my Smugmug galleries will produce code that can be embedded in a page, but the “Widgets” section on the sidebar of the blog, even if it can accept some code, will not take anything that fancy. So I think the solution will be to have a Photo tab with links to various pages which I can update from time to time. We’ll see. Deleting Facebook is part of an overall simplification of life and one of the next things that I have to do is get my grip around the massive number of files I have scattered about, including thousands of photos, which are in need of better organization. Life is too complex these days!

  2. I’ll keep tabs on this post in hopes of finding some good ideas on how to share photos on mine, as well.

    • I have been looking for ways to integrate Smugmug and have found nothing yet. At some point it was possible to use the Flickr plugin to display a Smugmug feed, from old blog posts I’ve found online that talk about workarounds like this, but apparently no longer, as I could not get it to work. I did try the RSS Widget and put one of my Smugmug RSS URLs into it, but all it does is display text, no photo thumbnails. The internet, it is overrated.
