I have a photography friend who I am doing a favor for. I am using a FREE Template as the base that he likes and now adding some features to make it fit what he is wanting.
The template is the “PROOF” FREE template. What I have done is create a Portfolio Page, which will show just pictures. Viewers can click on a category and then see images in that category, then click on the image to see larger images.
But Wait… There’s More.
There is also a Blog, where my friend can write some commentary about a photo shoot he did or other bloggish type writing. What I am trying to do is make it so that in the blog post he can display images that relate to the blog post from his portfolio page.
So I created 3 collections: Blog, Portfolio, and Catagories.
Blog has a field that has 2 multiple CMS call that refers to categories, and portfolio items.
Portfolio items have a multiple CMS call just for Categories.
The idea is that he would upload his portfolio images classify them, write a blog about that shoot, Classify it and link any portfolio images to that blog post…
When site visitor goes to the site and reads a blog the blog content is there and a display of images associated with that blog from the portfolio page.
Am I on the right track? IF SO, why can’t I make it work?
Is there an article or other post using this same type of correlations between CMS Databases?
IF I am on the wrong track any suggestions?
