Software development stage: stable
DjangoCMS image gallery plugin with drag&drop reordering in admin, support for thumbnails and jQueryTOOLS overlay.


  • Drag&Drop reordering of photos in the plugin admin
  • Unlimited, auto-discovered custom templates - you can change template of given gallery at anytime, use javascript galleries etc.


  • django-inline-ordering
  • easy-thumbnails


  1. Install requirements and put cmsplugin_gallery on your python path (requirements will be installed automatically if you use easy_install or pip).
  2. Add cmsplugin_gallery to your installed apps
  3. Run syncdb or migrate cmsplugin_gallery (if you use South).
  4. 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.
  5. Very simple template is included with the project. To make it work 100%, install jQueryTOOLS for overlay support using your favorite method


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 using following setting:

    ('app/template.html', 'Template #1', ),
    ('app/other_template.html', 'Template #2', ),

Embed as a typical plugin.
