Assistance for Lightbox that is populated from folder on local filesystem.
I'm new here and I'm looking for some help. I have basic HTML knowledge and I'm still trying to learn (through these various types on implementations). I'm looking for assistance or direction for the following intranet idea:
I have a local network or file system that stores assets (movies, pictures etc,) in various formats.
I would like to create a page with an integrated lightbox solution that will read a specific file folder on the local filesystem. Eg. Files can be dropped into a folder, and will automatically be playable/streamed on the lightbox.
From what I understand I need the following:
folder structure -> php file reads it and echos thumbnails -> page refreshes itself -> clicking thumbnails opens the lightbox.
Now I like prettyPhoto for jQuery, it seems to be the most universal I believe.
Trouble is, I do not know very PHP very well, and how about I should implement this. It seems hard to find examples of this online. Could someone please assist me in this?
