Unofficial Gallery Release for Joomla 3.x

Until now the gallery component was only available for Joomla 2.5. But Kay Olutayo sent me an updated version for Joomla 3.x last week. I published this version on the gallery details page. Please feel free to download and use it.

Gallery 1.0.0-alpha.4 released

The Gallery component for Joomla 2.5 is now available in the new version 1.0.0-alpha.4. There are some improvements and bug fixes in the new version. The most notable new feature is the support for name converter plugins. With name converter plugins it is possible to modify the displayed folder name on the fly. It is thus for example possible to use the date in the folder name, but don't display it.

Further improvements are:

  • added robots noindex for category pages
  • parameters for width/height of thumbnails and resized preview photos
  • support for IPTC information (show title and description in shutterbox)
  • removed capty -> always show folder name (for usability reasons)
  • show folders and photos in one folder at the same time

Joomla Gallery now on GitHub

The Joomla Gallery source code is now available on GitHub. I have decided to publish the component on GitHub, because it is easier for everyone to contribute something to the project and I do not have to maintain the infrastructure, what otherwise would take a lot of time.

Please feel free to contribute to the wiki, file bugs or submit patches. The forum is still available, but without any discussions so far, at Google Groups.


Gallery 1.0.0-alpha.3 released

Today I have released a new version of my gallery extension for Joomla 2.5. In this version I have implemented multiple new features, like for example support for lazy loading of the images or better support for the tracking of clicks in the lightbox with Piwik.

I have also changed the license of the component from GPL to AGPL, tweaked the performance and did some refactoring.
