I have used Phoca Gallery around 5-6 websites that was developed by me. The gallery is awesome. Really i am satiesfied with it. I can customize its CSS to make a different looks. Anyway, I have used Modal Box alltime, but when we click on the modal box, all time and for all pictures it takes a fixed width-hieght to show the iamges. I am trying to finding the opntion from the admin panel so that the iamges Enlarged auto adjust to the browser window like facebook iamges or "Photoon Photo Gallery Light" ? I feel so much happy if you reply me.
Thanks for this component
There are many setting parameters but it can give you headache when things like it happen because you don't know which parameter will fix/affect it.
Maybe the extension needs more simple interface, for admin backend. The front end I think is well designed.
1) shadows - mostly this is caused by template - if you visit Phoca forum - http://www.phoca.cz/forum you will get quick info how to modify the template to not be in conflict.
2) admin interface - it is a Joomla! interface, so maybe this is more a question on Joomla! developers.
There is no way to disable the Powered by phoca link. And it links to 2 different URLS's - One for each word "Phoca" "Gallery" ( Author gets 2 links from your site )
Why is this not mentioned in the Extensions description that there is a forced link?
You should mention it.
Hi, I am sorry, but you are not reviewing features of Phoca Gallery.
I have never seen such information for e.g. Joomla! itself? There is powered by Joomla! in footer and I saw no "review" on this fact?
If you don't like "Joomla!" or "Phoca" then please don't use it :-( but if you want to do review, please make some useful review which can help other people to get some useful information. :-(
I am driving an old Volkswagen but didn't call to Wolfsburg to tell them, the car is bad, because it has "VW" sign included???
I have never write bad review on Windows, because its logo is displayed on my copmuter and I have bought this software (better not to mention software I have downloaded for free like Suse Linux)???
Please use right information. There is no forced link and never was in Phoca ... You are not forced to use it. Phoca community does not force anybody to use it. If you know what freedom means, your freedom was not, is not and will be not violated by anybody who developed Phoca extension. :-( :-(
If you have some useful tips or info, will be great to know them - just visit Phoca Forum, it is open to every idea.
But what I did , which way I try.... it failed. I have followed Jans lessons , but sorry
when it works it works fine
Hi, as wrote many times, if this:
a) is fake review - no comments from my side
b) review was meant seriously - then please, reviewed should be features, not that something is not working (if it evidently is working - on demo sites, users sites, etc.). If you get some problem on your server with extensions, please, just visit Phoca Forum - to solve the problems.
Usually, if my old car gets broken, I am going to visit service (include, I will take the car and describe all problems I have) - mostly the problem is solved quickly. I think, that making review on some website about my old car will not help me and see no logic in such behaviour ... so I am really sorry and I really apologize a lot, but I don't understand this review and logic of this review and cannot answer it normally or help somehow :-( :-(
Thank you for understanding.
It is not suitable for uploading Videos yet but you can add Youtube videos. Only problem I have found is that the YouTube upload form shows in all pages even if I am not logged in and I don't have any control over it. May be I am missing something or it will be fixed in the next version.
Either way it is a fantastic component and I recommend this component.
Hi, thank you for your review, yes, the problem was solved in version 3.1.5 (with displaying YouTube form in frontend)
I have also tried to install the plugin version and view on an article. Success and fail in the same way.
Phoca's demo site can do that (yes, even by IE where cooliris's website states that they don't support it) but I never success to create an a/c on their forum to post a question asking how.
Hi, solved in Phoca Forum, problem was not related to Phoca Gallery, see more in Phoca Forum: http://www.phoca.cz/forum
JHtml: :batch not supported. File not found." error in back-end... you can't do nothing from back-end of this component.. developer suggest in forum to upgrade to J1.7.. which I think is not correct... many have customized extensions, templates etc... so Upgrading is not a "fix" ... I think you should take off the badge of Joomla 1.6 from your extension here on JED because this Does Not work.
Hi, it is like you will use gasoline in your diesel car and your car producer will tell you, you should fill your diesel car with diesel. Does this make a sense? Yes ...
So if you are running Joomla! 1.6, you cannot use component which is made for Joomla! 1.7. So if I as developer will help you in forum and say: You need to use extension ready for 1.6 (some older version of Phoca Gallery) or you need to upgrade to Joomla! 1.7 to use Phoca Gallery designed for Joomla! 1.7 ... I think, this make sense.
So really don't understand this review.
If this is not a fake review, then please read this:
a) if you are running Joomla! 1.6 and you don't want to upgrade - just download older Phoca Gallery which is designed for 1.6 (the icon on JED is OK, because there are different Phoca Gallery versions and you will find version for every Joomla! version since Joomla! 1.5 and there is a version for Joomla! 1.6 too, of course).
b) if you want to upgrade (to Joomla! 1.7 or 2.5) - then just use the Phoca Gallery version designed for Joomla! 1.7 with batch feature which is Joomla! 1.7 feature.
I am really sorry, but I still don't understand what is the problem and why this review was made, really don't understand. :-(
You have got from Phoca.cz
- working free extension (developed 5 years) - so you have saved 5 years of your life
- free advice in forum
and because you want not to understand the logic of the system and advices in forum (I still think, it makes sense - you just use the component which is designed for the system, if Joomla! 1.6 does not have included batch support, because it was developed for Joomla! 1.7, you just cannot use extensions which are designed for this feautre and you need to use older one), you just write some review which does not make any sense and seems to be a fake review. :-(
So what is really your problem? You are not able to use right version for right system (Phoca Gallery designed for Joomla! 1.6 in Joomla! 1.6, I think not) or your problem is that Phoca Gallery has Joomla! 1.6 icon listed here on JED?
That said tho it's still a very good extension!
Hi, thank you for your review, will be great if you can explain it little more in e.g. Phoca Forum.
"... folders used to store files with no clear way of setting custom folders for specific media types"
At this time I don't understand what you mean with specific media types? In image gallery, there is only one media type - Image. ???
But it's just as easy as "a b c". Install it, upload your pics, multi-add them and you are done!
Looks great, easy customizable.
Everybody should donate for this! Thanks from me for this great work!
