I use it now for image galleries in articles, as replacement for Phoca Gallery. It is easier to use; you just need folders with the images, nothing else. There are no additional categories needed, etc. The only thing I note is that filenames such as “blabla (25).JPG” are not allowed.
I've tried several galleries but none worked well immediately. The Very Simple Image Gallery works immediately. But on my website the browser jumps to the top of the page when selecting a new image. I’m using the ja_purity template.
I solved the problem by selecting temporarily another template and then return to ja_purity. Then the problem was solved. Maybe it's a Joomla bug.
This is the only good functioning menu I found, that allows dummy parent menu items. You can set if parent menu items must have a link or not (for instance to an article). Also, the sub menus stays folded out, as usual, as you wish. See it here
I wanted a content list for the article headers, like Wikipedia. This is a good plug-in and it works properly. The control and features are perfect. Of course there are always minor improvements to imagine but it is very useful as it is now.
