This theme is an adaptation of the OctoberCMS demo theme with the aim of showcasing the versatility of the November Gallery plugin as well as the UniteGallery jQuery Gallery Plugin that drives the galleries. You can find the source code for this demo theme on GitHub.
This demo is intended for end-users of the theme, i.e. content creators. If you are looking for more technical information, please see the November Gallery Docs. The docs also provide a more hand-held explanation of how you can use November Gallery in your OctoberCMS application.
November Gallery is a gallery plugin for OctoberCMS that tries to Keep It Simple and Stupid.
- Upload your images using the Media Manager built into OctoberCMS
- Drop November Gallery onto your page or partial
- Select the folder you uploaded your images to and how you want them displayed
Behind the scenes, November Gallery makes use of the Image Resizer plugin to generate thumbnails of your images, and the excellent UniteGallery jQuery Gallery Plugin.
- Four components included:
- Embedded Gallery if you wish to show a gallery of images in your page with several "styles" that can be set from the component inspector without writing a line of code:
- tiles (arranged in columns, justified, or laid out in a grid)
- combined (large image + lightbox)
- Popup Lightbox for galleries that can be opened from a link or button on your page, with two "styles" that can be set from the component inspector
- Video Gallery for...videos, again, with several "styles" availeble:
- Title + Subtitle
- Titles only
- "Image List Only" component if you want to handle the display of the images yourself and only need a list of image objects that you uploaded to a specific folder using the OctoberCMS Media Manager.
- Set which folder of images to display using the component inspector OR pass it dynamically as a page-variable
- Various default options for the Embedded Gallery can be configured in the back-end, these options can then be overridden using the component inspector:
- Gallery size
- Size of thumbnails
- Custom JS options to pass to the UniteGallery script
- Responsive/touch enabled/skinnable/themable/gallery buttons/keyboard control etc.
