Folderblog is a lightweight photolog script written in PHP. It uses XML as data storage and XSLT to generate HTML. It can be used as an image gallery or as a photolog - or for anything in between. It's intuitive, simple and fast. It does not require a database or knowledge in HTML. The theme engine is highly flexible and there are some pre-made designs included.
