Hi, I hope this is the right place to ask this question, and I apologize if it isn't.
I'm looking to migrate a pretty large set of photo galleries that are running a custom photogallery script to Gallery2. I'd like to know whether the tasks I'd like to accomplish can be done via the Gallery 2 API, and if so, where I can start. Since the original gallery is custom, I plan to write my own migration script, so I hope that the following actions are viable through the API:
* Create registered users programatically, without sending them an e-mail.
Bonus nice-to-have feature: convert HTML in comments to BBCode programatically on the fly
I should note that I'm an experienced developer, so don't be afraid to get technical on me
From what I understand, it's not encouraged to go rooting around in the database; developers are instead encouraged to use the APIs. So will that be adequate for what I need?
