Please suggest me a gallery to use with CB 1.3.1

11 years 1 week ago #151177 by rebreanu
Hello. Since Gallery Tab by Armin Hornung can not be installed anymore on CB 1.3.1, please suggest me another option (I'm still googleing for one but a good recommendation is what I need right now). I have installed CB Gallery but, unfortunately, it is below my current needs. I need, let's say, something similar to gallery used on face***k web site.

Thank you.

The best I can suggest is as what is found at Joomla.org extension directory. I recommend CB ProfileGallery, but as stated is not up to your standards (we're open to suggestions, what do you need?).

extensions.joomla.org/extensions/extension-specific/community-builder-extensions/community-builder-pictures

Alternatively you could use an extension specifically designed for photo gallery usage which would be more in line with professional galleries and likely offer the features you're wanting. This does not necessarily mean they'll have a profile tab to display their images, but you certainly could develop a plugin to do so.

extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-a-images/photo-gallery

Thank you Kyle for your quick answer. You do your job professionally.

For my current needs, the CB Gallery plugin must have the following:
1- Albums (maxim number of albums set by admin)
2 - First Picture, Previous, Next, Last Picture links for viewing photos.
3 - Each user can (not a must yet, but can be) have his own photo directory.
4 - Mass photo upload (the maxim number of pictures set by admin) Also, the user can mass upload his photos no matter how big they are (if they have bandwidth, no problem), the server image application mass re-size all photos to a predefined size (e.g. 800x600 if the photo is 4:3 ratio), then the image application on server deletes the originals and leave the re-sized ones in places (in order for me to save bandwidth and storage space on server).
5 - The possibility to use Amazon S3 service a must.
6 - Photo title/name must not be required on upload.
7 - Some privacy settings are welcomed also.

Average Joe, after years of practicing, finally learned to browse pictures fa****ok style!
I hope my users will be better than Average Joe, but never knows.

I can pay 70 euro or more for SIMGallery but if something goes wrong on my site, I must ask you for support, then ask Simbunch for support. You give answers very prompt and accurate, but are they? I prefer to PAY MUCH, but to have FULL FUNCTIONALITY in just one place, and this place to be JOOMLAPOLIS!

I see, your needs would require a complete re-write of the gallery plugin which I do not foresee happening in the near future. We've plans to extend the plugin further, but for the time being our plans are to focus on CB 2.0.

Believe you'd be more comfortable with a extension designed for image gallery usage then a simple gallery plugin. I've only personal experience with PhocaGallery, while good probably does not have all the features you are needing. Primarily the Amazon S3 support would be the most difficult to find as personally never heard of it.

There are many free extensions on Joomla.org for gallery management; perhaps having to readjust your needs would be necessary? I unfortunately can not speak for other developers support.
