Independent tags for images

Hello all!

First, I'd like to congratulate and thank Mikael for this awesome content manager.
Now, I have a suggestion I think it could be useful. In my website I''ve been thinking about having a homepage which would display the latest uploaded images, indepent of what project they belong to, as a way of having a kind of tumblr in the front page with the latest images.
I'm sure that for people with php skills that may be very easo to do, but Im afraid I have not that skills, so I thought that if the Secretary had a function to tag images you could tag several images from several projects, as, i.e, "latest", and then create a Page that call all the images with that tag and display them together...
I think it could be useful to create albums with images that belong to several sections o projects at the same time and It would give a lot more flexibility to The Secretary.

I hope to have made any sense with my non-native english. Anyway, thanks for reading and thanks again for The Secretary.

    Hi Aurello -

    I second that suggestion - would be a nice feature for me also as my coding skills are limited i would like to welcome something like that also.

    You can use the Page Type Options to do this.

    -- EDIT

    Ahh you want to do this with images? Not just projects? This would require some PHP work. If it's just the latest projects, then you can do this easily already.

    Hi again, Mikael...

    It would be awsome if you post a function or some code to do that, it would be very helpful for my project.

    Thanks again for all your hard work.

    Hi again,

    i know its a completely other cms - but the new indexhibit (v2) has this feature - maybe somebody can browse thru that code to se if we could implement (hack) it into this system?

    So basically a tag field in the image edit modal? Totally possible and easy enough to implement.

    Good idea.
