  • Set the "Record Storage Page" to the "StoragePage" you just created
  • Open FE and admire your album :)

Known issues

  • After installing fs_media_gallery the ordering of my exiting sys_file_collections changed

    • This is because fs_media_gallery enables manual sorting of sys_file_collections this is something we need to make the albums manageable.
  • I inserted a "Media Gallery" plugin but I see no images in FE

    • Did you set the "Record Storage Page" of the plugin to the "StoragePage" with your albums?
    • Did you set the "Display mode" in the plugin?
  • The images shown in the lightbox don't have the max size but are resized to max 1400px * 1400px

    • These limits are set in the typoscript template of the extension and are there to prevent that to big images are used in FE. These max values can be overruled by setting your own values in your typoscript template. plugin.tx_fsmediagallery.settings.image.lightbox.maxWidth plugin.tx_fsmediagallery.settings.image.lightbox.maxHeight
