DjangoCMS Gallery plugin (0.5.5)
- Drag&Drop reordering of photos in the plugin admin
- django-inline-ordering http://pypi.python.org/pypi/django-inline-ordering/
- easy-thumbnails http://pypi.python.org/pypi/easy-thumbnails/
- Install requirements and put cmsplugin_gallery on your python path (requirements will be installed automatically if you use easy_install or pip).
- Add cmsplugin_gallery to your installed apps
- Run syncdb or migrate cmsplugin_gallery (if you use South).
- Create directory for storing media files - files will be uploaded to MEDIA_ROOT + 'cmsplugin_gallery/images'. Make sure it is writable especially when running in embedded mode on production server.
- Very simple template is included with the project. To make it work 100%, install jQueryTOOLS for overlay support using your favorite method http://flowplayer.org/tools/download/index.html
The easiest approach is to use a nice feature of cmsplugin_gallery - the template autodiscovery. In order to take advantage of it, add your custom templates in the cmsplugin_gallery subdirectory of any of template dirs scanned by Django.
If you don't want to use the autodiscovery, you can hardcode available templates in settings.py using following setting:
CMSPLUGIN_GALLERY_TEMPLATES = (
('app/template.html', 'Template #1', ),
('app/other_template.html', 'Template #2', ),
Embed as a typical plugin.
