In your experience with X3 over the years, have you ever experienced a situation whereby an X3 gallery (folder) had too many pictures in it, to the point that it caused problems with/for X3 ?
I realize that in most situations having them split up into sub-galleries would be best, but I find that in certain situations having single folders with lots of "similar" pictures is better for my needs, so I can browse a single folder to select similar pictures to view, rather than knowing which separate folders contain those similar pictures :upside_down:.
The only down-side that I've found (so far) is that if in control panel I forget and have Gallery set to Edit Mode, with that many pictures in a single gallery, X3's control panel will hang & popup a notice a few times telling me that the page is unresponsive, and allowing me to Wait or Exit the page. So whenever I am working on those handful of large galleries, I always try to remember to switch to List View before selecting those large galleries in control panel :slight_smile:.
But I'm wondering if there are any other X3 problems that I have not discovered yet & am therefore unaware of, by having that many pictures in a single gallery.
At present, I am still working on 2 or 3 galleries that will contain many pictures in each, maybe not a thousand but at least quite a few, but for now those few galleries are still hidden. So I have temporarily created a test gallery (folder) HERE on one of my public sites for testing purposes, and placed about 1,275 pictures in it (I had to copy the same pictures many times to the same folder, to get the quantity of pictures that high for testing purposes). Those are NOT the actual pictures that will go into those large galleries... this test folder is just to see how X3 handles over a thousand pictures in a single gallery. From my end, it looks & displays OK.
So back to my question here, from your perspective, what would you recommend would be good-practice for limiting (if at all) the number of pictures in a single gallery (folder)?
Thank you in advance & have yourself a great weekend.
