Rokin Gallery now comes bundled with all developed add'ons available so no longer seperate installs!
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...
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.
PD : Sorry for mi bad english :( Gracias :)
However - thank you for many time spending on development :)
Thanks for your review, this is possible check the FAQ's here
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?
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
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.
Sorry you had a bad experience with the support. Because of the amount of messages on the forum I'm not in a position where I can help everybody. I would not be able to breathe if I did so. If you want help other than from the community, either contact me through the contact form or even hire support if it's not fast enough for you likings. But an experience is an experience, thank you for sharing yours. Kind regards Alex Jonk, Pageworks
Had to manually install CoolIris 3D Wall albums Addon then drop crossdomain.xml file into public_html directory. ( Code provided in first time access to 3Dwall )
Very easy to configure and have to say a big Dank u wel to the Page works guys for making this available.
interfaces with google's picassa web galleries withe se. The back end interface is great, and it is well worth your while to get the cool wall working. It runs surpisingly fast.
the extensions are usefull, unfortunately not too many of them work in conjunction with the cool wall flash feature. i am really impressed with this extension.
Actually I'm anxiously waiting for a similar bridge to picasa webalbums with a Flickr-style slider...
