Project Description
A DotNetNuke (photo) gallery module based on templating. Basic photo management implementation. No subfolders, just a straight list of pictures. Perfect if you need to include a small gallery on a DNN page. Comes complete with a number of lightbox and rotator templates.

As so many projects this grew out of a discrepancy between what I needed and what was out there. The features of this module are:
  • Templated output of a list of images using simple HTML templates but powerful enough to use existing jQuery lightbox solutions to render this
  • Simple management of a single list (i.e. no hierarchy) of images
  • Ability to regenerate the thumbnails in case you want them a different size after having uploaded the images already (this means keeping the original)
  • jQuery uploader for smooth uploading of multiple files at once
  • Edit screen with drag and drop support to help reorder pictures

The templating solution is quite elaborate and illustrates, IMHO, how DotNetNuke's so-called token replace mechanism can be enhanced to include iteration. I've also added a mechanism to allow for a collection of settings for each template that can then be edited by the editor.

Included (jQuery) templates are: Note I cannot guarantee they will all play nice with your site. A common cause of jQuery issues is clashes between installed components and/or the used skin. If you have issues you'll need to debug yourself using tools like Firebug.
