Description

Have a gallery of images for each track and perhaps each area.

There are many tools available for displaying a gallery or a slide show. HighSlide is one particularly good tool, with many presentation variations.

See this mockup for an example of a gallery that would fit within the Track content area.

Usage of Highslide is fairly straightforward, requiring minimal coding. I suspect most of the work to implement this type of feature would be in the management of the images - with each one requiring an image, a thumbnail of appropriate size, a title, and a caption.

Comments

I would like to add sub-section (tab?) to each track that allows for optional collections of media; pictures, videos, other?

Idea: you can flag one of the images as "key" and this 1 image would also display on the main track page

The HighSlide tool that I used in my example is very flexible, with lots of options. There are many possible variations - such as gallery in page and image that becomes a gallery.

For the "key" image idea, do you mean something like this example? This is almost identical to my previous example, with the following changes:
- CSS: changed style for slideshowcontainer
- CSS: changed style for slide
- HTML: put z-index on first image so it is on top of the others.

I was just wondering if it is possible to combine images and videos in the same slideshow. Turns out to be quite straightforward, as shown in this multimedia example.

This might be a way of organising multiple YouTube videos, rather than embedding them directly in the webpage.
