Introduction

Photo Gallery, Photos & Images, Galleries

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.

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

Ease of use

User friendly.

Support

Great support

Documentation

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,
Marco

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...
Sitemap Generator

An easy to use XML sitemap generator for Joomla. 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 out of the box. The computation costs for your website is also very low because the crawler acts like a normal visitor, who visits all pages of your site once. If you host your website on a dedicated server, you may not need this extension, because you should have enough resources to generate your sitemap on your server. But if you host your website in a shared environment (as the most Joomla users do), it would be wise to outsource the generation of your sitemap to an external service like this plugin uses to generate the sitemap. This way it is guaranteed that the speed of your website is not affected for your visitors during the generation of the sitemap. Features Simple setup. Works out of the box with all Joomla extensions. Low computations costs for your webserver. Uses the Joomla update function. Technical Features Respects your robots.txt file (also the crawl-delay directive). You could use the user-agent MB-SiteCrawler to control the crawler. Support for robots (noindex) meta elements. Adds nearly all indexable filetypes (for example .pdf, .xls, .doc) to the sitemap. See the document Sitemap Generator Data on my website for more information. Additional Technical Features of the Professional Version Generation of image sitemaps. Generation of video sitemaps. Currently HTML5 video elements and embedded YouTube videos are supported. Upcoming Technical Features Support for Vimeo videos in video sitemaps. Support for HTML5 picture elements in image sitemaps. Automatic daily creation of sitemaps. Data Aggregation and Indexable File Types I have published a detailed document about how the Sitemap Generator aggregates the data for the generation of sitemaps and which file types are getting indexed on my website. Sitemap Generator Data Requirements Joomla 3 Linux webserver (not tested with Windows yet) Installation Instructions Download the installation package. Install the package. Go to Components -> Sitemap Generator in the backend and use the Generate your sitemap button to start the generation process. The sitemap will be saved as sitemap.xml in your Joomla root directory. Be aware that an existing sitemap.xml file would be overwritten without asking. Use the "Show the sitemap" button to download your sitemap and check if the generated sitemap is complete. Frequently Asked Questions I have a page with frequently asked questions available on my website. Limitations of the Basic Version The Sitemap Generator service allows you to create a sitemap with up to 500 URLs for free. If your website has more URLs or you like to integrate an image or video sitemap, you could buy the professional version to create a sitemap with up to 50000 URLs at the following website. The joomla extension itself is free of charge, but nearly useless without the external service. Please note that also not indexable URLs (for example .zip files) count to the quota. Sitemap Generator Professional Warnings If you already have an existing sitemap.xml in your Joomla root directory, this file would be overwritten. It is thus recommended to backup your existing sitemap.xml file before using the Sitemap Generator. I also have not tested the generator on Windows webspace. You should also access the sitemap.xml after the generation finished and check if everything is fine. It is also noteworthy that the plugin does only check if the current user is allowed to login to the admin interface. If so, the current user is allowed to generate a sitemap. The permissions or access level of the module do not affect the plugin. Pre-Installation Verification Test If you like to test if the Sitemap Generator works fine with your website before you will install the extension, you could use the Online Sitemap Generator on my website, which uses to same technology as the plugin to generate the sitemaps. Use of an External Server The Sitemap Generator uses an external server, operated by the developer of the extension, to crawl your website and detect broken links. This means, that there is some communication between your website and the server. The only data that is communicated to the external server by your website is the URL of your website and the fact that you are using Joomla. The server than crawlers your website (as a normal visitor does) and answers with the generated sitemap.

Link Checker

The Link Checker for Joomla uses an external service to crawl your website and find broken links and images on your website. In contrast to search engine tools like the Google Search Console, which only show if an URL on your website is not reachable, it does not matter for the Link Checker if a link leads to an internal or external URL. The Link Checker will find all dead links. The Link Checker works out of the box for every extension. The computation costs for your website is also very low because the crawler does the heavy work and just acts like a normal visitor, who visits all pages of you website once.

The HTML5 Audio plugin is a very minimalistic plugin and just provides a shortcode for inserting HTML5 audio elements into articles, custom HTML modules or any extension that supports the onContentPrepare event. The plugin could for example be used as a replacement for 1Pixelout Audio Player or Rapid 1Pixelout as it uses the same shortcode.
