It supports multiple images adding from admin panel and also from frontend. And also with this plugin you will be able to add watermark to images and restrict uploads count from frontend.
I how ever needed a slightly different format which I was having trouble implementing my self. I email support for advice I had an immediate and helpful response. If your using K2 buy this plug-in.
This developer deserves all the support and praise we can give one of those developers that make joomla building fun and functional
this is the kind of developer you wish to buy some components from him, even if you dont need them... Just because the amazing support!!!
K2 Multiple images solved the challenges for my setup. I had a few questions and Andrey answered them right away.
I was even an early upgrader to a new version of K2 for Joomla 3.0. the muliple images plugin needed a change and Andrey had a working version to me in 1 hour of my support request.
I build Joomla sites professionally and can say this extension and the support is some of the best I have come across. Hope this helps!
Now I want to use a new template file for another location. Where would I put the file item.php?
You can use different templates for K2 categories in "Select a template" parameter of category and also can override K2Multiimages template.
But should something break, don't worry. On my site, I encountered a problem where the images doesn't display, but Andrey debugged for me after I contacted him and he added modifications to my template to resolve the jQuery conflict. He even surprise me with a customized plugin to install when I only asked if it was possible to get the plugin to do this and that.
Having bought and used both Sig Pro and this plugin. This is far superior imo, compared to Sig Pro who just tell me it can't be done or reply with broken code. (Referring to how they tell ppl there's no navigation in Galleria Style's lightbox pop up because you can click on the thumbnail and you're suppose to live with that. Seriously?)
Now I can happily dump Sig Pro aside and use this plugin as my image gallery all thanks to Andrey. Not to mention, it's responsive as well =)
There are impossible to implement new features without using own template. You can customise and override it, its only change template file name for own.
I was impressed how quickly developer replied to my email with customization. Emailed him at midnight, received answer early in the morning.
Simply brilliant work!
