For editors

The 'Simple Image Gallery' Plugin provides various options to cover different scenarios.

Quick & easy

The easiest way to get an front end output of your gallery is to follow these steps (default scenario):

  1. Create one or more file collection records in a folder inside your page tree and include your files. Each file collection represents a gallery.

  2. Add a 'Simple Image Gallery' Plugin on the page where you want to show your gallery. Backend view of bm_image_gallery plugin

  3. You have to select the plugin type that fits your needs. Select the proper EXT:bm_image_gallery plugin

  4. Add references to your file collections in the 'File Collection' section. Backend view of EXT:bm_image_gallery plugin for a gallery list

  5. (Optional) The Plugin Options provide a second tab named 'Gallery'. Here you can limit the number of shown images the gallery. There are also options to sort images. 'Default' will take the order from the file collection. Backend view of EXT:bm_image_gallery plugin for limiting number of images and sorting

Possible scenarios

There are the following scenarios to display galleries:

Scenario 1: A list of galleries with gallery view on the same page as the plugin (default).

For that choose the "Image Gallery: Gallery List" plugin and select "Same Page" as "Detail View" option.

Scenario 2: A list of galleries with gallery view on another page as the plugin.

For that choose the "Image Gallery: Gallery List" plugin and select "Selected Page" as "Detail View" option. After an automatic reload, you will find an additional configuration option "Gallery Page" at the bottom of the screen. Please add a reference to the target detail page here. Save the plugin and navigate to the page just selected. Create a new plugin of type "Image Gallery: Elements of Gallery". Now you are all set.

This scenario is recommended for multiple plugins on the same page.

Scenario 3: A list of galleries without gallery view.

For that choose the "Image Gallery: Gallery List" plugin and select "No Detail View" as "Detail View" option.

Scenario 4: A gallery view for a single gallery.

For that choose the "Image Gallery: Selected Gallery" plugin.
