The "Gallery" component is a minimalistic and completely file-based gallery for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3. File-based means that there is no need for a database and you could manage all your photos in just one place: the file system. When you are creating a gallery, just upload your photos to the gallery folder and the whole gallery is automatically created.

The "Gallery" is the indirect successor of the Photoblog component, which is still available for Joomla 1.5.

Posted on 04 March 2015

Its the only one I found that worked with my template perfectly. Highly recommended.

Ease of use

User friendly.


Great support


Simple instructions.

I used this to: Photo Gallery on my website.

not sure if this is still supported as last comments / update is pretty old now (2 years old).

I liked the demo but couldn't get it to work and there is no documentation out there to help me...

too bad, it seemed to work beautifully on the demo page!

Owner's reply: Hi guije,

Thank you for your interest in the Photoblog extension. Indeed there was no development for a long time and I had to shutdown the documentation wiki because of vandalism.

If you are still interested in such a component, maybe you will have a look at my new Gallery component for Joomla 2.5. The new component is developed from scratch and a lot easier to use then the Photoblog. It is also completely file-based and thus fast to setup. However, the design is nearly the same, so maybe you would like it.

Best regards,

It feature all the options I need so far. But I find at the end, that I need one more important feature: blog order. It has the option to order the categories, but no the blogs.

Owner's reply: Hello aolba, thanks for your review. I have posted a fix for this issue in my forum. The blog view feature was originally planned for the next release... regards, marco

Photoblog review

Posted on 16 September 2009

Nice gallery, a bit confuse in the beginning but along the way you should do just fine! Waiting for final release...

I installed this on my site and it's working like a dream. It's really stable and presents my images in a professional and easily acessible way. Thanks lot!!

love the demo and can't wait to get it working. i installed like the directions say but i think something is missing. it says put in absolute and relative path but it doesn't appear in the frontend.

needs a little more detailed instructions and this should be a great plugin. backend works fine and it great with lots of features.

Owner's reply: Hey, thanks for your comment...
You can set the absolute path at the configuartion view in the backend.

But maybe it's better to wait to the next version, which I like to publish in 5-7 days... In the new version (alpha 2) an advanced photo managment system would be integrated...

After I launched the new version, I start to write a documentation...

The Simple Image Slider plugin for Joomla 3 is, as the name implies, a simple image slider. Features - Responsive. - Dynamic image generation based on screen width. - Uses AJAX calls to prevent unnecessary bandwidth usage. - The Joomla layout function is used and it is thus possible, to override the HTML code with ease.

An easy to use XML sitemap generator for Joomla. How it works The sitemap generator uses an external service to crawl your website and create a XML sitemap of your website. The generator works thus for every extension without the need for additional plugins. The computation costs for your website is also very low because the crawler acts like a normal visitor, who visits all pages once. Features Simple setup. Works out of the box with all Joomla extensions. Low computations costs for your webserver. Uses the Joomla update function. Is the service free of charge? Currently yes, but just during the beta phase. Afterwards the service costs about 1 Euro per 500 pages per month. The joomla extensions itself are free of charge, but nearly useless without the external service. German Instructions
