Hi, thank you for your feedback, you can set permissions for groups too, not only for each user.
One thing I really like about this component the endless customizable options available for me.
I did notices some bugs when I tried the demo though. Example would be that I was unable to center the thumbnail. So this area still needs a bit more testing and bug fixing.
The interface looks good but it could be a bit simpler and user friendly. But overall, I would recommend this component.
Hi, not sure what you mean with centering and bug.
Most appreciated feature of the Phoca Gallery is the unique system of centering of thumbnails. It means, the thumbnail is centered horizontally and vertically (which is a common issue in HTML/CSS)
This is why a lot of users use the Phoca Gallery instead of other gallery - because they have centered the thumbnails.
Please let me know in Phoca Forum - http://www.phoca.cz/forum what you exactly mean.
Hi, thank you for your review, but I really don't understand what you exactly mean with "thumbnails square"
Can you post this as a topic into Phoca Forum (with some more concrete explanation), etc. - http://www.phoca.cz/forum
Thank you, Jan
Hi, thank you for your review, not sure if I understand you correctly, but you can display images on the site with "no popup" method, it means, every image will have own page. If I don't understand it correctly, please, just visit phoca forum (http://www.phoca.cz/forum) to write more detailed question.
Thank you, Jan
Very well designed, Thanks Jan!
firstly i confused with the component because there are many parameter to edit but after several time i learned, the component is very great. i can show all my product perfectly.
i also give donation for this component (not much because our company still new) so i disable visible link to developer - tell me if i'm wrong to do this.
overall, i love this component very much and i will use it for another website.
thank to phoca developer
(sorry if my english not so good)
I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to put a gallery on their site, it can take a little perseverance when getting to change some of the more intricate elements but it is well worth is as you will have a very customisable gallery. Also.. check out accompanying mods such as the Phoca Gallery Image Mod which are very easy to use and create some wonderful elements to any site.
1)"the only place to change settings is in the parameters, and there are not intuitive as to what changes" - settings called Options in Joomla! are rendered by Joomla! itself, not sure what is the problem to have only one place to change settings? Does it make sense to have it on different places? Really no idea, but in every case, this is more a question on Joomla! developers, not on the component itself, as Options are rendered by Joomla! core
2) "Also the padding and margin settings should be individual" - they are individual and you can set them in Options
3) "I could not and still can't figure out how to center the thumbnail" - thumnails are centered as default - unique CSS solution working in obsolete IE browsers and mobile phones
4) "I tried to use the module to add to an article" - yes modules are not designed to use them in articles - in Joomla! - just read the Joomla! documentation.
5)"so I did, but the plugin settings" ... if you have problems with plugin, please visit Phoca Forum and documentation, there is easy guide which explains why modules and plugins need to have a menu link of the component in Joomla! to not get 404 site while using SEF - this is a Joomla! feature.
Please if you have problems, just visit Phoca Forum, all of mentioned problems can be easily solved and most of them don't have any dependency to the component which you have reviewed :-( :-(
To JED moderators - please remove this review as in fact this is not review for the component :-( :-(
Thank you for understading.
