Use of Phoca Gallery PLugin


Posted on 04 September 2015
Functionality

It seem to function, once you manage to understand the settings. Changing things only possible by changing code which is not quite clear.

Ease of use

Thanks to the button plugin is a lot easier to use the Phoca Gallery Plugin and the Phoca Gallery component.

Support

I haven't found any contact possibility on the site (yet)

Documentation

The documentation is rather clumsy. The documentation is, in my opinion not always up to date. Please Jan revise these things on your site.

I used this to: Showing photos sometimes in a gallery added to Picasa .
Owner's reply: Hi,

contact: on phoca.cz site, you have a link directly to contact me and of course the best method to get support (of course free) is phoca forum: http://www.phoca.cz/forum

documentation: see:

http://www.phoca.cz/documentation/category/14-phoca-gallery-plugin
http://www.reisefotografien.eu/phoca-bedienungsanleitungen/category/26-phoca-gallery-plugin

documentation with examples: see:

http://www.phoca.cz/demo/phocagallery-plugin with 20 documentation and example sections (or see other demo sites)

I have made a lot of free extensions, so sometimes it is not possible in my free time (after my regular work) to answer many posts in email, in chat or in forum, manage all the translations (overs 1000 translation files), have the documentation up-to-date, etc. So if somebody wants to help with free projects, this will be great. Many people think I am superman, but I am not, I don't have so much time I need so if anybody can help to project (e.g. with improving the documentation), will be great and I and all the community will appreciate it a lot.

Thank you, Jan

Very professional and beautiful design for a free extension.Keep up the good work Jan.


I love it!

PHOCA GALLERY PLUGIN


Posted on 17 April 2014

Great, its easy to use .. i love to continue with it.


Fantastic, easy to use. Thanks, cause I could complete my little website.

You made a very good job.


What about google?


Posted on 09 February 2013

I have been using Phoca Gallery for two years now and have been loving it. As a novice I found it easy to install and configure the way I wanted it to look. I just have one major problem, I use xmap as a sitemap and there are no xmap extension for Phoca Gallery. Google is currently not picking up my more than 9000 images. It would have been an even greater product if I could add a sitemap.

Apart from that problem - I would always highly recommend Phoca Gallery.

Owner's reply: Hi, thank you very much for your review, please try to ask in phoca forum, I think, there was some xmap extension for Phoca Gallery :idea:

Far from simple to use


Posted on 24 October 2012

After many hours of going through the extension's documentation, code and settings I finally managed to configure it the way I wanted it to look. And it wasn't anything fancy! That's not a good sign at all. It shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes. This made me never want to use Phoca Gallery again.



- The settings are not described precisely enough (few simple images cold help a lot in understanding which setting does what exactly).

- Adding multiples photos to gallery is not intuitive at all.

- If there's a larger amount of images, there's no simple way of telling which were added last.

- Whole layout of gallery crashes when trying to switch through several gallery templates (for example, icons from the previous one appear on the current).

- Explaining how to use this gallery to a client, who isn't exactly a computer geek is like trying to learn a monkey how to read.

Owner's reply: Hi,

if you get some problem just ask here:

http://www.phoca.cz/forum - maybe this can save you some minuts/hours

To get information from documentation, visit:
http://www.phoca.cz/documents/14-phoca-gallery-plugin/58-displaying-phoca-gallery-plugin

To see it live in examples, go to:
http://www.phoca.cz/demo/phocagallery-plugin

and other demo sites (there are over 30 exmaples of the using of the plugin and many of using the component)

I will try to answer following issues:

- The settings are not described precisely enough (few simple images cold help a lot in understanding which setting does what exactly)

==> see above - there is a documentation link with all the parameters and there is a link to exapmles (over 30 examples) and of course there is a forum where you can get help


- Adding multiples photos to gallery is not intuitive at all.

==> Not sure, the Multiple Add function was made by community users for quickly adding images to gallery (I think they have selected good way as adding of all possible albums with help of Multiple Add function is really easy and fast - http://www.phoca.cz/documents/2-phoca-gallery-component/8-multiple-adding-images-categories-and-subcategories )


- If there's a larger amount of images, there's no simple way of telling which were added last.

==> every image get timestamp (of course if all images are added at once, then the ordering says simply which image was added as last)

- Whole layout of gallery crashes when trying to switch through several gallery templates (for example, icons from the previous one appear on the current).

==> Not sure what you mean, I don't know any such feature in Phoca Gallery ???

- Explaining how to use this gallery to a client, who isn't exactly a computer geek is like trying to learn a monkey how to read

==> Maybe telling him the links to documentation will help.

Thank you, Jan

Good photo gallery


Posted on 23 March 2012

It is a good and simple photo gallery to use.

It provides simple way to add pictures into a gallery on your website.



The drawbacks of the components is how comments on the images are shown and adding title and text to you images during multiple imports.



The comments should be more in the focus then they are now. Perhaps something in the way Facebook does it, most people know that way so it would be more simple and straight forward.



When adding multiple images to the gallery it does not give the option on adding title and text to each picture, or at least I have not found out how to do it.



Despite this it is a good component.


Excellent Job


Posted on 23 February 2012

I was tired with phoca component early, because i was interested in slide show and not photo display individually as displayed in the phoca website. but later i realised there is a plugin also to display the slide show. and finally it worked on first installation itself. My requirement was id wise display of set of images per article and this plugin rocks. Installation is seamless for a noob. no settings need to be done actually. I was shocked to see the plugin in action. It is simple though powerfull and solves my purpose. Cheers to the team ! Keep it up ! Good Work !


i would of rated it excellent but you need to fix some stuff:



1)your site has many extensions consider making all in one also extension

2)your component is extremely difficult to add 500 pics at once ... can't you make it simpler? like {gallery}folder{/gallery}

3)i tried to integrate phoca gallery and simplecaddy and took me 4 hours... the documentation you put is not enough... consider adding a video... it is quite easy though but i needed to find out by my self

5)for this specific you could give a quick install template or even sell it and make quick money out of it... i was ready to pay if someone had it but nobody even bothered to reply to my forum question it s been 3 days now

Owner's reply: Hi, thank you for your review.

Regarding questions in the forum. See Phoca Forum rules: http://www.phoca.cz/forum/forum-rules.php

1. ... I (developer) need to work in my regular work, need to sleep sometime, etc. Usually I am visiting this forum every second or third day and after my regular work I am answering cca 90 posts at night ... (the same is by moderators or other users, who all are answering posts and helping people for free in their freetime).

(Anyway - It seems, there is nobody in Joomla! world who has answered more questions regarding Joomla! than me, I will sure answer your questions there but please be patient)

Thank you for your understanding.

To not be spammed, you should make all the recommendations in this article: http://www.phoca.cz/documents/3-phoca-guestbook-component/436-trying-to-prevent-from-spam and of course your server needs to have a lot of different tools to prevent from spam. And you need to care about your inputs, because for example, you cannot prevent from human spammers automatically :-( The situation with spam is really horrible (I know it from my experiencs where spam and ddos attacks makes my server down most of time) If you have some input form, you need to care about it everyday. Regarding Phoca Guestbook: I am regularly working on different protections for the Phoca Guestbook but reviews here based on spam issues (without reading the articles and making no other spam protections on the server) demotivate me like other "input form" developers. Maybe there will be nobody in the future who will do such extension because he/she will be blamed instead of the spammers :-( :-( Phoca Guestbook is not the one who spams your sites, please think of it while making a review. And Phoca Guestbook is not the one who ignores the spam problems (just see the article and the features) but you should know that it is really difficult to fight the spam :-( :-( =================================================
