HOT Photo Gallery Plugin for Joomla

HotJoomla Extention – Joomla Gallery plugin – HOT Photo Gallery is all that you need to make Photo Galleries of images directly in content pages of your Joomla website! This Joomla gallery plugin creates thumbnail images and slide show automatically from your collection of photos.

 

 

How it works?

  1. Upload images for Gallery in a folder on your server (using Joomla Media Manager or FTP). Make sure the folder is writable (chmod 777).
  2. Make an article page in Joomla with or without text and type:
    {*photogallery}images/stories/sample{/photogallery*}

    wherever you want on the page (you would remove the *’s in practice. They are included to actually prevent the plugin from working in this place).

Our plugin will do the rest for you! What actually it does?

  1. Automatically makes thumbnail images and save them in /thumbs subfolder of your folder with images. You can define thumbnail image width in the plugin properties, defaultvalue is 200 (Extensions > Plugins > Photo Gallery Plugin).
  2. Replaces your command described above with a serie of thumbnail images. You select how many images per row in the plugin properties, default value is 3.
  3. Create Lightbox slide show. Click on any thumbnail will open larger image in Lightbox pop-up. User can browse images (prev/next) in the pop-up.

What options do you have regarding the page styling in plugin settings? (Extensions > Plugins > Photo Gallery Plugin)

  1. Border color, mouse-over color and border width.
  2. Padding between border and thumbnail image.
  3. Horizontal and vertical margins between thumbnail images.

This plugin uses jQuery JavaScript library and it works in no-conflict mode, so you can use it together with other scripts.
