Images as content type

May 3, 2011 at 8:29 AM

Hi, this is a feature request.

I'm wandering if it would be possible to make the images content types themselves. Doing this would allow us
to add other parts to them, like for example voting buttons, sharing on facebook parts, comments, etc.

thanks in advance,

Hello Patrick,

Thank you for your nice feedback.

I'll think about that. Maybe I should have done this since the beginning. I'm planning to launch a new version this week. So after this release, I'll make some experimentation and let you know the results :-)

Any other suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks again.

Gabriel,
you might want to check Media Garden http://orchardmediagarden.codeplex.com/, which already treats every media item as content and then maybe add gallery as image specific extension build on top of it. Garden has quite good plumbing but is just intended as a base for advanced content specific modules like yours.
