Simple Image Gallery Extended

Simple Image Gallery Extended (SIGE) is just what it says: a simple image gallery extension for Joomla.

Download the appropriate version for your version of Joomla from the project site. Install and configure it according to the instructions.

Additional configuration options are found by opening Simple Image Gallery Extended in Extensions – Plug-in Manager. Non-default parameters I usually set include:

  • Details – Enabled: Yes
  • Settings – Gallery – Thumbnail storage (Info): Yes
  • Settings – Gallery – Select JS view: Lytebox
  • Settings – Gallery – Load JS files: lytebox.js
  • Settings – Gallery – Show link to author: Yes for initial testing; No after making a well-deserved donation
  • Settings – JS View – Show image information: No
  • Settings – JS View – Show download button: Yes
  • Settings – JS View – Print option in JS view: Yes

Does Simple Image Gallery Extended not meet your needs? There are alternatives.

These notes refer to Simple Image Gallery Extended 2.5-2 on Joomla 2.5.4 and were last updated 30 April 2012.

    Sorry, I haven't revisited this extension since I wrote this article. The developer's site has a support area; I suggest asking there.
