Creating a GALLERY OVERVIEW with the same functionality as BLOG OVERVIEW

Recommended Posts

Hi, guys,

I want to create a GALLERY OVERVIEW page with multiple projects (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.), identical to the BLOG OVERVIEW page that leads to individual blog posts.

The BLOG module is useless because I can't customize the BLOG posts the way I want. The gallery block in the blog posts is outdated, and there is no option to choose the Masonry grid.

SCENARIO A

  1. How can I mimic the BLOG OVERVIEW functionality with a streamlined flow?
  2. The GALLERY OVERVIEW should lead to individual PROJECT pages, each containing a Masonry grid gallery.
  3. At the bottom of each PROJECT page, there should be next/previous buttons that link to the next/previous projects.

I'm looking for automation here. I want to avoid manually designing and reordering projects as I add more content to the website.

Can this be done?

 

SCENARIO B

I keep the BLOG structure but customise how the gallery is displayed on the project pages.

The gallery will contain both landscape and portrait images with a 3:2 aspect ratio on a single column. How can I adjust the spacing between the images to make it even? Currently, there is even spacing between portrait images, but a large gap between a portrait image and a landscape image.

Thank you!
