Can i load images directly from a folder rather than manually putting them in? Ie: get all images from 'images' displaying in a gallery?

    Thank you for suggestion, but there won't be such option as it's not seo-friendly and resource-intensive.

    I'm using the following code I've written with some .php- Be sure to name your file with the .php extension- It will iterate through the images in a folder, however, linking and description blocks will not be available.


    // image folder path
    $imglist = array();
    $img_folder = "../slider_images/";

    //use the directory class
    $imgs = dir($img_folder);
    while ($file = $imgs->read()) {
       if (eregi("gif", $file) || eregi("jpg", $file) || eregi("png", $file)){
          $imglist[] = $file;
       <div class="sliderContainer fullWidth clearfix">
    <div id="bannerSlider" class="royalSlider">
       foreach($imglist as $image) { ?>
       <div class="rsContent">
    <img class="rsImg" src="<?=$img_folder.$image?>">
    ?> </div>
