Photon - Gallery Plugin for Croogo CMS

What is Photon?

Photon Gallery is a gallery and photomanagement plugin for Croogo CMS, originally based on Edinei L. Cipriani's gallery plugin. However it offers much more features and capabilities - it is heavily extended. Photon's administration is AJAX-powered and integrates flawlessly into your existing Croogo install. A new Tab is added to your nodes which allows you to upload pictures via Ajax - those pictures are directly related to that specific node. Doing so, Photon features four different preconfigured ways of displaying your photos: either in an Image Replacement gallery, in a Slider gallery, in JQuery Popeye gallery or just as single images. A seperate set of administration-views allows you to have full control over all your gallery stuff.

Once again, to point out the most special feature, the so called "NodeAlbum"-feature: For each node a specific album is automatically created. Thus, you can upload photos directly when creating nodes!

Installation

  1. Install this plugin via the extension management of Croogo or upload the folder "photon" to /app/plugins
  2. Activate the plugin: the tables will be created and initial settings be saved
  3. Add new albums & upload photos
  4. Enjoy (hopefully) :)

You can access the gallery via yoururl.tld/gallery. If you want to display photos or galleries inside your nodes, just put code like this at the desired location in your node: [Gallery:slug] [Popeye:slug] [Slider:slug] [Image:id]

When running your Croogo with markdown, please make sure you first activate markdown, and photon afterwards. Otherwise your galleries wont be rendered.
