Bug Fix: v2.6.2 Fixed an issues with some responsive templates and the Flickr delivery system.
Upgraded release (v2.6.1) from GraphicAholic. Added two new user request features. 1) Auto photo scroll and timer option. 2) Show/Hide Joomla and Flickr titles option. and it's still FREE... as it should be!
Responsive Photo Gallery for Joomla 2.5 & 3.x. Create stunning eye catching photo galleries in a simple and easy 'responsive' way. Responsive Photo Gallery will self adjust to whatever browser or screen size your viewing from. When viewing from a smartphone or a touch pad, you'll love it's finger swipe navigation ability on both the carousel and the main photo. There are only a few module options to set because the power is in the code! Responsive Photo Gallery uses the power of the jQuery Library Script (version 1.7.x or newer), a few supporting jQuery scripts and some basic code as its backbone.
PLEASE NOTE: The jQuery Library script version 1.7.x MUST be used for the Joomla 2.5 version with this extension or it will not work!
Responsive Photo Gallery has been tested to be compatible with IE8+, FireFox, Chrome, Safari, Smartphone and Touch Pad browsers.
Feature Upgrade: v2.7.0 Added Fancybox2 lightbox effect for the main photo. Added a max-width/max-height main photo feature. All new and greatly improved 'Auto Play' code. Added a 'Play' & 'Pause' icon when using the 'Auto Play' feature.
Upgrade Release: v2.6.0 for Joomla 2.5 & 3.x Added an auto photo scroll and timer option along with a Joomla/Flickr show/hide photo title option. Fixed a bug in the Joomla 3.x folder selector when installed on a localserve.
Housekeeping & minor bug fix release: v2.4.0b for Joomla 3.x Only!
Upgrade Release: v2.4.0a for Joomla 3.x Only!
Upgrade Release: v2.3.0 Ability to render Flickr Private Photosets.
Upgrade Release: v2.2.0 Fixed loadposition tag issue and added a new drop-down option for showing different Flickr main photo cations.
Upgrade Release: v2.1.0 Now supporting Flickr Photosets.
Initial Release: v2.0.0
My only recommendation is to improve upon the image description potential for the gallery. As it stands it uses the name of the file. Though this may be fine for many uses it does present limitations for many. The use of an external file (txt or csv) has proven very effective with other galleries.
Ed handled my issue from the first time and within 1 day he recoded my slideshow to be 100% no-conflict with jQuery and Responsive Photo Gallery.
NO issues on the site found and everything works properly with this great extension shown on my website.
It is a very easy to use module with a great support behind it. Even if its FREE.
I appreciate your help, your time and your kind replies.
Thank you Ed :-)
And not to forget, it is free :)
tomox, thanks for your kind rating and review of Responsive Photo Gallery. Glad everything is now working for you and no worries about not reading the documentations... neither do I ;) Oh, it's FREE because that's the way it should be!
Adytzu... I am humbled by your very kind comments and rating. They make all the development hours worth every sleepless night. Thank you again and please let me know how else I can assist moving forward.
mjason, yes... the power of jQuery and CSS is amazing and thank you for your kind rating and review! The thumbs are generated by... magic! Checkout the helper.php file ;)
caponz, no... thank you for allowing me the time to work through your issue. I'm delighted all is well and that the site owner is happy. That is what it's all about!
To be effective all photos have to be resized to fit nicely into the monitor aspect ratio you are designing for. I found that for sensible display all the photos had to be resized to 400 px in height, but this would depend on yor template. Also if you want descriptive titles you have to rewrite the file names to be the title you want.
Overall really useful if, like me, you just want a basic gallery module. I especially like the ability to just upload more photos, which are then automatically incorporated in the gallery.
The author seems to be very happy to promptly answer any questions, which is excellent considering this is a free extension
Colin, thank you for your helpful suggestions to improve upon RPG. I hope the pre-release I sent you meets your approval and then some? Please let me know how I can assist further moving forward.
Benjiw, happy to hear all is well with your install now and thank you for your kind rating & review. Both are most welcomed!
www.emads.gr, thank you for your kind rating and review. Oh, I hate watermarks and backlinks as well but understand why some use them.
Works very good.
Because there was limited space on my page, I contacted GraphicAholic. They gave me good and fast support !
JeroenHiddink, thanks for your kind comments and rating on Responsive Photo Gallery. Also, thank you for giving me the time to come up with a work-around to solve your issue.
kaelisan, the only way for this to happen is from a script conflict or miss-management of the jQuery Library from another extension. Responsive Photo Gallery follows all the jQuery rules to the letter and your issue is a new one after some 15,000+ downloads.
Really gorgeous mod and had to give props where they are due and they are definitely due here!
AlisonM, believe me, the positeve reviews I have received for Responsive Photo Gallery would be far fewer if jQuery was active on installation. There are thousands of extensions and templates that also use jQuery and the general rule is... 'only one jQuery Library script should be active per page.' I'm sorry if this caused you some issues but I always try to play by the rules with all of my extensions! Thank you for your most kind review and comments. Both are most welcomed.
No option for disabling thumbnails or other controls.
I would appreciate a less css-heavy template option, although the design is nice - not for my project.
I very much appreciate the 1 click download and easy config.
You might want to enable jQuery by default to avoid support requests from novice joomla developers.
Thanks for this module!
allsite, thanks for your kind comments and suggestions. Having jQuery pre-loaded with this extension would generate far more support requests based on all of the other jQuery extensions and templates currently available for Joomla...
JakuJoomla, thanks for your very kind review and it was my pleasure being able to assist. If you encounter any further issues, please do not hesitate to contact me.
