    Question Can't figure it out.

    I have been trying to figure this out for a while now. Everyone that I'v asked can't seem to give me a straight answer. I was told it's called Image Indexing, but I'm not so sure about that. I'm wondering how sites are able to upload videos and pictures to a page, and automatically create numbered pages at the bottom. I'm having trouble putting this into words, so I'll just give an example website.

    - vidmax.com/

    They have about 10 video's on the page. Then when they add say 5 more video's, the 5 at the bottom automatically move to the second page. How is this done? Someone pointed me to this program - coppermine-gallery but I'm not sure that's what I'm looking for here. please, I beg you, someone give me some sort of answer.

    Usually, those types of webpages are created using server-side scripting and a database. The images or videos are part of the database, and a query call to the database (within a webpage's coding) displays them. Further, the server-side scripting can enable you to define a maximum of results per page. Don't get this mixed up with regular/static HTML coding -- this is a totally different animal because the pages are created dynamically, according to the number of records in the database.

    The program recommended to you is a good and well-known one. If you read the capabilities of it, you'll see that it pretty much follows your outlined needs. Before using it, though, make sure that your web host's server is the correct platform.

    Thank you. That helped. I'm going to try the program, but do you know of any sites that can help me learn how to do it the other way (databases)?

    Coppermine does use database:

    MySQL is a database.
