Getting rid of Piwigo

Getting rid of Piwigo

Having used Piwigo for my gallery for some time and found it pretty good, I now need to replace it as it’s not responsive. But finding an alternative that looks decent has proved to be a bit of a nightmare for various reasons. However, today I’ve come across Koken and that looks like what I need, so looks like I’ll plump for that – and start from scratch…

Addendum

First impressions of Koken on trying it in earnest were not good: gave useless “HTTP error” when trying to upload 4000×3000 image. After much trial and error, it seems it doesn’t really like large hires images (not a PHP problem because upload limit is 128MB…). Not a showstopper though, as a Photoshop action can quickly sort out the ones giving problems with little loss of clarity. So… accepting that, it’s all looking the way I want it: clean, crisp, and responsive. Adding titles and captions will have to come later…
