not enought documentation...

Posted on 12 August 2013

it looks great, and i'm really impressed for the reviews of this extension, but i cannot use it well for flickr and i cannot find enough infos in the documentation page...

I also tryed to contact the developper, but the mail form in his website does not works properly and so this is the only way i can use to contact him...

this is extension is good since it is free. it fetch all my photo from picasa and i am happy with that, Thankz to developer for this nice work.


but i have encounter a problem with the lightbox thing when i click on picture it open two times in lightbox one after another overlapping each other.

very good but...

Very good plug-in and it is obvious the developer has put in a great deal of work but I don't see how it could be used for group photo galleries. This is not a live feed and the administrator needs to manually go in and "refresh" to include new photos. so if one of the group member uploads photos to the group web album they would need to wait until the administrator remembers to refresh...

Excellent Component

Many thanks for making this excellent component freely available. Your hard work is greatly appreciated. I have been using it on two non-profit sites for the past 6 months and it works very well. I display Picasa and Flickr galleries with no problems.

to connect a photo gallery Picasa is perfect

Gooood job!

I really enjoy this component. I would very appreciate if there would be possibility to select one Picasa gallery as a component target. It would be great if i could set e.g. 2 different galleries under two different menu items.

However - thank you for many time spending on development :)

Owner's reply: Thanks for your review, this is possible check the FAQ's here

This is a very powerful extension and the installation was going very smoothly.

I especially like the Lightbox Slide Gallery with its flickr-like style, also for integrated picasa galleries. Of course, the gallery overview could be improved by not relying on the simple view with the blue background...

But more importantly, I am missing the picture captions (comments)... Any updates expected?

Owner's reply: Some views do support captions but not all. There is a comments addon but does not support the comments from picasaweb, this might be a good addon on for a future release. Updates are expected but I don't think it will be released this year, hopefully as early as 1st qtr 2010. It is a major release with a lot more core functionality like search, paging and image size all in the core so not for each individual addon. Also each addon can be used on every level in the gallery(ie gallery album photo stage). Thanks for the review. Kind Regards Alex Jonk

Easy to install and works great. I gave it a good and not great because you cannot search photos and the design is pretty weak. But That may not have been the emphasis of this extension.

The Gallery works perfectly.

To bad private albums are not supported by default but there are 2 options in which you can use them.

1 is a workaround and 1 is a code change.


Make you album public in picasa, load the gallery in rokin. Put the album on private in picasa.

You album will show in joomla because rokin is using the file links they are the same when a album is public or private.

The Code Change:

I made a change to the code that it can read private albums.

But there are requirements:

Zend Framework/Libraries must be installed on the server.

You must add the password of you gmail acount to after the username with a | in rokin like this: [user]|[password]

So when you are the only one that has access to admin console you can use this.

What my code change does it uses the zend libraries to connect to picasa.

I did not have time to make the passwordt hidden in some other way.

If the original maker of rokin (Alex Jonk) want the code please let me know, I'll send it to ya.
