Galleria JS - History Plugin with permalinks

Hi everyone,

I'm using Galleria JS together with history plug-in:

What it does is as you browse through the gallery, it applies #/0,1,2,3,4 to the URL.
Example: http://bit.ly/kDfxFf

The problem is that this is not a permalink; first photo has always #/0 so when I upload latest photo, it gets #/0 and older photo goes to #/1,2,3 and so on.

Solution could be to let History plugin create a permalink, based for example on <img title=""> value, or it can be any random but permanent number.

I know this is a bit difficult question but does anybody know how to achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

No one else has attempted to answer this question, so I will make a few comments. Permalinks based on a given image tag is something that needs to be added to the history plugin. From a look at the code, it appears to be a nontrivial change that might take a bit of time and touch many functions. No one probably has had the time to look at it and make the change, which is likely why no one has answered this question.

Barring this solution, a less attractive one is to have your server-side input images in the opposite order and having Galleria load the last image; this way all images will keep their IDs. The down side is that the thumbnail slider will then have to move from right to left.
