Great gallery extension

Posted on 24 September 2022
Joomgallery has everything i need and fullly functional as described. Full of good features.
Ease of use
Super easy to setup and use. Even a new joomla user can install and setup very easily.
Very friendly developer and support. Support forum is a great place and a good community.
There is a FAQ section on the website and has lots of articles to help for solving issues.
I used this to: I use this for organizing the photos of my customer's who needs a gallery to show the photos.
Does everything most people need from a gallery. I particularly like the Drag 'n' Drop upload feature.
Ease of use
Very easy to use. Can be installed in minutes from the Joomla extension manager.
I used this to: My Radio Control model website, My Fathers Model Aeroplane website and My Retro computers website.
The component comes with a huge amount of settings and features. Even after years of using it I am able to find new interesting features.
Ease of use
It takes time to get an overview of all parameters and their effects. But after you have a component with seemingly endless possibilities...
Component has a support forum, where you can reach for help. The community seems strong and helps you with your problem.
I used this to: Extensive galeries with or without download or sell functionality.
Very awesome, there is really everything you can ask for at an image gallery!
Ease of use
It is a very complex component but everything is explained clearly and in numerous languages!
I have not yet had the pleasure of testing the new forum, but the documentation makes it almost superfluous
Extraordinary and well-made documentation, very detailed and accompanied by images
I used this to: For an information/news site of a very very prolific Italian association
A lot of functions and parameters to adjust the gallery as you want and do a lot of things with easy way, ftp upload, categories etc
Ease of use
Very easy, a lot of options in configuration with explanations for all
Despite is a free product, the support is excellent in forum or by email, personally they helped me and they fixed a problem in my website
Very good documentation, you can find anything you want to do very easily even for specific things as modules, plugins etc.
I used this to: I have a lot of categories with thousands of photos and I chose JoomGallery because is the best for this job and I use it for a lot of years and I am very satisfied! Thanks developers!!!! Very good and useful component!
All required functions are available and easy to use.
I really love the drag 'n drop upload as this allows easy batch image upload.
Ease of use
Although there are many parameters to adjust the gallery it is fairly simple to get up and running. The default parameters are useful and oi
Excellent support through the project website. I was provided with a migration script that fitted all my requirements.
Very useful documentation on the project website.
All open question were answewred reading the manualö on the website and using the forum
I used this to: Several hobby websites to enable club members etc. to upload their photos from events etc.
I was using the ICEGallery before which also was a great gallery but unfortunately there is no more support and updates so most like likely Joomla4 will kill this gallery.

My One and Only!

Posted on 09 January 2019
For my two photography sites it is exactly what I needed and has been ever since starting with Joomla 1.5. Now with 3.9, is still the King
Ease of use
The configuration was simple. Tons of options and was up and running quickly.
My sites weren't in order when I migrated to 3X. Support quickly responded and saved the day before I had even finished my nap. The Best!
Did not need to use it
I used this to: Complete organization of my two Travel Photography sites, loaded with thousands of travel images, histories and descriptions. Have used JoomGallery for a decade, and now entering decade number two . Works perfect for me. and
Zero. The component won't install for whatever reason. It says something from invalid syntax, no idea what the reason is.
Ease of use
I can't use it cause it won't install. Because of the lack of alternatives we finally had to switch to Wordpress and rebuild the site.
Absolute zero. I posted multiple times in both German and english forum, I offered a donation for a support answer - nothing.
We only had the installation issue and except some forum users with the same issue and no solution, there was no documentantion for this.
I used this to: Had it worked, we would have boght the pro version and we would have used it as a discussion module for our forthcoming magazine cover images. I understand it's free with reduced support, but there was really nothing. Sorry for the bad rating, but what else should I do?
