The following are my requirements for the content image gallery for Joomla articles:
- Need the ability to display multple images in a gallery format within a Joomla article
- Need AJAX popup functionality; eg, when the user clicks on the image, they get an AJAX popup that displays OVER the existing page
- Need the ability to navigate in the gallery once the popup is open
- The image gallery needs to be easy to use for non-techinical users
- It would be nice if the gallery were free
Simple Image Gallery, from JoomlaWorks, is a perfect match for my requirements. And it’s FREE! (JoomlaWorks also offers a Pro version of this software for 12 Euros). This plugin is simple, powerful, and come with great instructions.
The setup is quite simple.
- Install and activate the plugin
- Configure the plugin; eg, you can specify thumbnail width / height
- Insert the plugin code in any article
- Add the gallery images to the folder specified in the plugin code
