Gallerific (FREE)

Post by Adendum » Thu Apr 12, 2012 3:37 pm

This extension is based on Trent Foley's jQuery plugin. Original code here. Galleriffic is a jQuery plugin that provides a rich, post-back free experience optimised to handle high volumes of photos while conserving bandwidth (he says).

Features
• Smart image preloading after the page is loaded
• Thumbnail navigation (with pagination)
• jQuery.history plugin integration to support bookmark-friendly URLs per-image
• Slideshow (with optional auto-updating url bookmarks)
• Keyboard navigation
• Support for image captions
• Graceful degradation when javascript is not available
• Support for multiple galleries per page

Demo available.

Have fun - but read the help file first!!!!!!!!!!

Available from the main extension site or from my demo site.

I'm asking this with respect... and not necessalily from Adendum but in general: what is the point in creating and having 1000s of image extensions?

I didn't intend to open a new thread for this question. Ok. Take it as a question to you.
Don't misunderstand me. I know it takes time and effort to build an extension. But every second ext. builder person builds an image extension. Why?

Sorry DocDoc but as Paul said he was asked for it. you as it happens I too am making another slideshow as a customer has specifically asked for it. Now paul has been good enough to share it with the rest of us who can benefit from it. I think a simple Thank you would be nice. Most of the extensions I make are for a client site that is why I never advertise them on my site.

@Paul I love the work mate. Thank you.

Out of the 18 extension I have released so far:-

Code: Select all

Anything Slider - a slider for all types of content.
Automated Tooltip - an alternative to a basic glossary page.
Background Resize - image related but specific to background images.
Chained Selects - a navigation tool.
Elastic Thumbnail Menu - a navigation tool.
Gallerific -  image related; a gallery.
Image Information Panels - clickable information pop-overs.
Image Swap Menu - a navigation tool.
Kick Butt Mega Menu - a navigation tool.
Orbit Slider - image based slider.
Photo Info - clickable information pop-overs.
PHP Directory Listing - a tool to display the content of a folder.
Simple Horizontal Accordion - an accordion to take text or images.
Slide Down Box Menu - a navigation tool.
Stacked Images - image based presentation of a stack of images.
Super Sized Slide Show - image based full screen slideshow.
Tab Slide Out - like a sticky layer with some extras.
Text Panel Slide Show - image based slider.
only 5 or 6 are image based - sliders or galleries, that's about 30%. More to the point the bulk of them have been requested in some form via the "Suggestions for an Extension forum" the rest I have created because I have used them in varying degrees over the years and an extension makes them easy to implement again, so I decided to share them to make life a little bit easier for the next person.

If I come across a site that does something unusual - even if it is a gallery or slider or carousel - and I like it and think it could be useful, I'll track down the author and get their permission to build an extension. Take Chained Selects as an example. This was a general query about how to achieve the end result and I posted the correct terminology and the thread expanded to talk about the version on the Dynamic Drive site, which turned out to be unusable because they don't allow that so I contacted Xin Yang, the original author, and he said yes and gave me the latest version - 3 weeks later you all got the extension and so far 1175 people have downloaded it.

Likewise if I come across a problem or issue that can't be easily resolved with native WWB tools I'll research and see what is out there. If my problem is solved and the resource that helped me solve it allows me to I will create an extension for others as well. But more often than not the extensions I build are a direct result of a WWB user posting a request based on what they have seen somewhere.

At the end of the day someone somewhere wants something and much of it will be image based. Take little old Orbit Slider - not that impressive but 8446 people have downloaded it. Text Panel Slide Show 3230 downloads. None of these have record breaking downloads like Naval's amazing DBTS Forms Processor at 11,925 downloads (a truly awesome extension) but if people keep making suggestions and I think I can make them into an extension and I have the time, I'll do it. As my demo site says I will do custom one-off unique extensions at a price if someone asks but I am also quite happy giving back to the community and will continue to do so.

So, if you have an extension in mind you know where to post.

And, NO, I haven't taken offence. I just don't understand why you bothered posting such a question.

Just wanted to know what the major deal was about images all the time.

Well, I was just curious.

Nice one Paul - your unselfish effort is always appreciated mate :wink: :D

Have you thought about using mouseover / mouseout instead - saves clicking on the tumbnail - just a thought?

Like this site I just built for a client....

You've used events to do that, Gallerific is using Javascript. And Gallerific has a history feature - try navigating with the keyboard or using the back key after you've clicked a few images. Events can't do that. Also Gallerific uses an opacity feature for mouseover states, so I don't think you could combine the two.

Saying that if anyone knows how to amend the Javascript to allow mouseover rather than clicks I'll see if I can add it as an option.......but someone will need to point me in the right direction.
