I already have seen them (LR and the turning gate) much earlier.
Problem with LR: it has not been updated a long time (at least early 2014 or maybe even earlier) and they still describe the installation with the plugin manager which does not exist any more.
And TTG did have some really troublesome errors and problems (unless you paid $80,= or something like that.
So to be honest, both are not a solution.
It should be able to change an existing template to make multiple pages (somehow) i would think.
This solution is using the "HTML Gallery". One way to do it is put each gallery in its own subdirectory of your main page (you can use multiple sub galleries) and then have the main page in the root that links to the index.html files in each subdirectory. If your main page is not in the root you have to add the appropriate structure in the return link in the lightroom created gallery "Web or Mail Link" setting. I have templates set up in Lightroom for each subpage so I do not have to change Header info all the time for each subpage.
In the main page the link to my NATURE page would be ../nature/index.html
Then in the Lightroom created NATURE page you can use the "Contact Info" or "Identity Plate" (This can be graphical as shown on my page) "Web or Mail Link" setting to return to the main page using ../index.html
To see an example see my site http://www.ajaxmtn.com
Another solution from a Forum thread which I think would work very well
That would be a workable solution, but how do you make the main page?
By hand or just make an almost empty template page and then change the links to the galleries by hand?
Or can LR help with that?
Your site looks at least something like i wanted, so i could use this idea as a start.
Just the main page remains
The main page has to be created by hand or a program. I used Microsoft Frontpage (discontinued) but Microsoft Expression Web 4 is the same and if you are on Windows it can be downloaded free Download Microsoft Expression Web 4 (Free Version) from Official Microsoft Download Center.
These are DRAG AND DROP editors and require little or no hand work to design your home, about, purchased, etc pages.
If you are on a Mac ( I use a Mac but also have a Windows machine) there are several free web design tools.
I suppose you could create a Main Page gallery in Lightroom and change the links but I don't think it would look very good for a main page and you still have a problem with the about, purchase etc pages.
Thanks, i will give these 2 things a try (MS EW4 and the Lightroom pages).
