The Geocaching Australia Gallery is for geocachers to post photos from their geocaching adventures. It is currently in the early stages of development, with lots more work planned to integrate the logins, customise the interface and possibly use it as the image hosting hub for people to link into their logs.
- Integrate logins (single signon)
- Customise the interface - look and feel, user restrictions, emailing, comments, voting etc
- Determine policy - what can be posted, how much, how big, how will it be organised (album per cache/cacher/???)
- Integrate with Geocaching Australia logging
- Set up temporary all-access user (gcauser)
