Increasing your site’s page views with photo galleries

In my on-going blitz of plugins and enhancements for Movable Type I am adding one more to the list: upgrades and enhancements to the [Photo Gallery plugin](http://www.majordojo.com/projects/movable-type/photo-gallery/), which you can already see on [my personal photo galleries](http://www.majordojo.com/photos/).

Grid Layout

These features come compliments of one my favorite clients, [Urban Moms](http://www.urbanmoms.ca/), who sponsored the development of this latest addition to the open source plugin. They are using my Photo Gallery plugin across a number of their blogs, including the [Urban Traveler](http://www.urbanmoms.ca/family_travel/), the [Urban Closet](http://www.urbanmoms.ca/urban_closet/), and the [Urban Crafter](http://www.urbanmoms.ca/urban_crafter/). They came to me because they know that nothing helps increase page views to a site more than photos and images, and wow were they right. *Within days of deploying their new albums, their traffic increased by over 10%.* Now that’s results. Of course it doesn’t hurt to have great bloggers and photographers working for you either.


The features I added in this release are:
* The option to chose between a grid and blog layout for your front door.
* The option to display a “featured” photo on your front door.
* [Documentation](http://www.majordojo.com/projects/movable-type/photo-gallery/usage.php).
Yes, documentation is a feature, ask anyone.

    The Photo Gallery plugin now relies upon the [ConfigAssistant plugin](http://www.majordojo.com/projects/movable-type/config-assistant/) as well. I will update the documentation.

    Good evening, first time commenter. I love your Photo Gallery plugin, but was wondering if theres a reliable solution to uploading more than one photo at a time? I previously used Photon, when you supported Stop Design, but cant find a reliable way to use it lately
