Surely there's a better way to handle grouping, sorting & organizing when there are lots of galleries?
Yes, there's 'drag & drop' etc. and I suppose for normal people that's fine, but I've got over 700 galleries
to manage and drag & drop in the tiny left-hand tree view is lame.

Why not parse the first image and the sub-gallery name from each sub-gallery as a thumbnail for the parent gallery?

Hi,

Thanks for adding your feature request here.

We will take a deeper look at your requirement. What do you think about the adjustment of left panel as at Media Library?

It could be interesting in some ways, however, the ordering of images could be changed.
So I think the option to set the icon for galleries should be a great idea, alright?

Thanks a lot!
Cheers,

Hey,

I think adding filter & multi-select to the left panel would certainly help. Should be something, when coupled with drag & drop, that's available from all list interfaces, but ya, start with the left panel and let's see what happens.

Setting a default image is okay; kind of a drag when you have 700 galleries and thousands of images. Could use a random select; it keeps the galleries 'fresher' or, offer the user a choice & offer a default behavior. Either way, having the parent directory be able to display the sub-galleries using an image from each sub-gallery & link to them would be very, very useful.
