Image Gallery

I have a question about image galleries.
Here is the Scenario: I Created Different Categories for Images.
Then Created the Images Library and all the pages with it, Search, Add, Detail, Update, Delete.
Now when I add new Images, I choose a different Category and then that creates a new record. If I decide to create another Record with that same Category, it will create a new record with that same Category name.

How can I show all images from that one category witch has 2 records to show all the images in the same detail page.

If I insert more than one image to upload at insert record, will that have any affect on the results. I should not, right?

Now when I do a Search, what would be the scenario for record searches with categories?

The way the search works is that there should be a results page that displays all the information using a loop. You would search on the category column of the database and then you'd have multiple records returned in your recordset. Then you would display the information you want by looping and stepping through the recordset. You'd want to check if the recordset is at the last record to stop looping.

If you have multiple uploads set up, you will have to insert the details for each of those uploads. So for each upload you will need one insert. If you have one Digital File Pro upload that inserts more than one image in one upload, you would use a single insert to insert the information into the same row in the database.

Yes, I found out that uploading more than one image when I ask for a return on a search it only gives me the 1st image on that record. But another way is viewing then that record by itself, then it shows the other images on the same record.

So I ended up changing to one upload at a time, since I needed the search for each categories.

But I do have one problem still. Searching by categories, works fine, done the relationship and it´s no problem. but the keyword search is not giving me the match I ask for. Can´t seem to figure out.

If you can play a scenario here, or pass me a link I would appreciate.


Many thanks.

What did you set the keyword search to search on? If you set it to the wrong column, it will be trying to search on the wrong data and not return the correct results. Could you provide a link or describe the incorrect behavior?
