Phoca Gallery is a very powerful and flexible image gallery module. I am using it on a bigger website and it works perfect. Development is always up-to-date for the latest Joomla! releases. Phoca also offers some other Joomla moduls (e.g. Download manager) that are worth a look.

Searching for a good solution to host image galeries, I came across Phoca Gallery.
Deployment was easy and I quickly could add images and organize them in categories.
Also the rights management works fine to selectively provide images to specific groups of users.
There are a lot of customization possibilities for the display. Figuring everything out may take a little, so it's worth trying the configuration on a test system and once one is satisfied with the results, porting the settings to prod (but that's the good way to do upgrades anyway ;) ).
When contacting the developer he responds fast and kind.
I use this extension on three sites now, all Joomla 3 based, and like the results very much.

I am using this extension since 2009 (if I remember right). You can customize it as much as you like. The developer is always up to date, and upgrades its component to be compatible with the newest Joomla version! Congrats!

Tons of options and easy to use.
Been using it for the past 4 years, no moving to j3.2 and all works just fine.

Don't forget to donate for the developers of such great and extensive component, people like Jan (who made phoca) are the reason we love joomla.

Thanks Jan

Love the extension as a component in Joomla 2.5, but have had nothing but problems trying to get it to install in 3.2......does not show up in Extension Manager to enable, control panel opens, but cannot get to images or anything else, just get sql error messages. Not sure if it is the gallery or joomla that is the problem, as have had other issues with 3.2, especially with the Hathor administrator template. Either way, I am looking for something else until Phoca gets something working well with 3.2
Owner's reply

Hi, please visit Phoca Forum: and try to make a topic to get your problem solved.

Phoca Gallery 4.0.4 was made directly for Joomla! 3.2 - for now I didn't get any information that something is not working there. After changing the multiple form fields, which was changed for Joomla! 3.2, I made version directly for Joomla! 3.2 and I got confirmation that the 4.0.4 is working without any problem on Joomla! 3.2. Tested by myself on 4 test servers (two on localhost, different platforms) and seems everything OK.

If you get SQL messages, this mostly means some problem while installing - e.g. some tables or columns missing in your database. Please enable debug mode, php error reporting ( or )and visit: and paste a question there with the sql query error (should be displayed in debug information while debug mode is enabled).

Unfortunately Phoca Gallery does not install itself, it is installed by Extension Manager, so if there are some problems, they need to be found there - mostly this can be some problem on the server (sometimes it is memory limit, sometimes other server limits)

But to get the information exactly, error and debug reporting should be checked. Or the errorLog on the server.
