Works as predicted Needs time to setup. Great (only) extension for mass display of images structurally. The best. BUT lack of easy support
Ease of use
Takes time to setup After the setup it works very well. Crashed the site on J4. No help Uninstall and reinstall helped. Again hrs to setup
Support
All the links on my site crashed That is all (600+) lost the links to the images Nowhere was I able to get to the developer to get assist.
Documentation
Great. Takes time to work through. Need some coding knowledge. Plugin has easy setup but needs some more than beginner knowledge
I used this to: Displaying 1000s of images in specific galleries on a nature site. Still use it despite it crashing my site.I think in some update to J4/5 something went wrong on my site.

Works as Described

Functionality
It works as described and straight out of the box. Huge thanks to Levente for this extension.
Ease of use
Basics are simple to use, and for any more sophisticated adjustments, the documentation is quite extensive.
Support
I got stuck with a setting, couldn't find it easily (didn't look properly) and contacted the developer. I received a concise reply promptly.
Documentation
Contains pretty much every possible scenario, just need to read it carefully.
I used this to: Displaying simple galleries from local folders on a few websites.

Very disappointed



Posted on 15 July 2023
Functionality
Joomla 4. Gallery showed but there was also an error message saying that it couldn't find the directory.
Ease of use
It would be easy to use if it worked as it did in Joomla 3 but see functionality above. I did everything I could to fix it but couldn't.
Support
There is no support. If there was, I would have requested some. Apparently I have to use up more characters in this section.
Documentation
The documentation is old. Again, apparently I have to use more characters in this section.
I used this to: Sidebar gallery photos on a number of pages. This, too, requires me to use more characters or I can't submit the review.
Functionality
Everything is as described. Functional. I did not expect such good work from a free extension but it is really good.
Ease of use
Not very easy. You must know how to use syntax and be careful when you are adding in to the articles.
Support
There is no support person or a forum but the documentation and website is supportive.
Documentation
The documentation is very good and satisfactory. I found everything I was looking for. The demo site is also full of examples.
I used this to: I use this for my website to show different folders as photo gallery.
Functionality
the first extension without errors that I tested with joomla 4.0.5
Ease of use
It's easy to use but 1 point deducted for tag options ... personally, I like button options
Documentation
I used this to: my personal websites... Thanks to this indie developer to made this free plugin
Functionality
Since we had used this before, we installed it to check out how it worked on Joomla! 4.0.4. Wow. Since most of our articles already have t
Ease of use
the tag, all we did was install and activate it and deactivate the one we were using. Bingo! Done!
I used this to: bahaismexicali AT org/noticiasrecientes/23-locales/223-convencion-regional-de-2019 What a great program! Can't thank the developer enough. Have a wonderful week and please stay safe! :)
Functionality
Sigplus has lots of options to cover the largest and smallest galleries that one could conceive.
Ease of use
It works. It is easy to use. Load one's photos into Joomla's image handling media manager, make simple call and it works !
Support
I have had a couple of requests and these have been handled promptly and courteously.
Documentation
It's all there, Us your imagination and your ideas are fulfilled.
I used this to: Galleries on those sites which have lots of photographs - selling choir blouses, and my favorite of a large park packed with history and wildlife.
Functionality
To get an attractive grid layout use custom CSS override:
.sigplus-image > img {
object-fit: cover;
width: 217px;
height: 163px;
}
Ease of use
Easy if you are comfortable with shortcodes. Takes some time to find the right parameters from Flickr to put in the album shortcode.
Documentation
The online guides are easy to follow because they contain lots of picture examples. You find the look you want then use those settings.
I used this to: Allows my client to neatly display the photos from his Flickr photo album on his website's photo page. He doesn't need to know Joomla in order to add a product image to his photo page. He only needs to upload the photo to his Flickr account.
Functionality
The extension ist loaded with functionalities and works extremely well. I like the possibilty to add images without touching Joomla content.
Ease of use
At first it takes some time to sort out the options. But for the typical user, sigplus is quite straightforward.
Support
The support is excellent. I reported an issue and received a valid answer including the solution within 20 minutes (at Friday night).
Documentation
The documentation is comprehensive, but quite technical.
Good: Separation between basic and extended use.
I used this to: I've been using the extension for years on a number of different websites.
