I don't know if this website is SQL / database driven...

but when posting pictures of events, galleries or in forum posts it would be nice to have some additional fields ala "sn#, event, event date, photographer, and 'special field' for notes ala awards or interesting tidbits" associated with each pictures in the database.

Thus one can then run a database query against the image archive database and pull all references by one of these fields. Thus Wiki then would run a query on a sn# when the page is shown and thus all pictures posted into the forum, wiki, events, etc could be displayed.

Yes -- my background at one point was a database guru. Long time ago though.

Ah, we have an expert. Great to hear.

Yes, most of the site is database driven.

The forum is only a placeholder for images, it does not really contain the data for the info, although the discussions generate data.

The photo server does contain data. Actually, I have created chassis number and photographer / credits field. And this is being used. The rest of the info is so variable, that the general description field should do the job.

I do not want to create too much fields, which could be confusing or will limit me in future updates.
