The titles can be changed, but it wouldn't really help -- the gallery doesn't sort by title but by the directory name (such as EBTM06-PT-COIMBRA-SEP).
..and therefore, the directory names are what should be changed.
The old links can be kept in working by means of redirection.
The only even a bit harder thing about this hiding the old links from the link view. The very easiest way of doing this by creating a new directory for the "correctly" named directories and let the old address completely die.
So, my idea is as follows:
Create a subdomain called gallery.eurobilltracker.com , that will have its files in /usr/share/wwwroot/Gallery instead of /usr/share/wwwroot/gallery .
Move the current directories in gallery to have Gallery and give them better names.
Make a simple redirecting html page that will redirect to gallery.eurobilltracker.com , name the html file index.html and put it in /usr/share/wwwroot/gallery .
Do about the same for all the old subdirectories of gallery/ , redirecting to the appropriate new subdirectory of Gallery.
I figure that'll pretty much be it. A cheapass, easy way out. We will have to learn to use gallery.eurobilltracker.com instead of eurobilltracker.eu/gallery, but I think we all will be happy to do that if we that way get a better working gallery.
And, for those who want to use the old address, we've got the redirection in the old address, anyway.
I think I should be able to write a shell script for doing what I have described above. That shell script would then do everything for you when you execute it in the gallery/ directory.
It would look about shis way:
mv santaparty24122007/* ../Gallery/2007-12-24_Korvatunturi_Santas_EBT-party/
echo "<html>blaablaa</html>" > santaparty24122007/index.html
There might be some flaws about this, perhaps you must somehow regenerate the pictures in the other folder or something like that. I bet you know it. Feel free to PM me about it.
Eventually something has to be done about this in any case. The earlier, the easier it is.
