Title: RSGallery2 "Community Edition" - Joomla 1.0.15 + RSGallery2 1.0.14 + MORE
Post by: nate covington on September 18, 2008, 05:45:35 PM
I've been working on a customized version of RSGallery2, with a newly updated CB tab (LIGHTBOX!), which also works with AEC (Account Expiration Control) subscription manager.  I am working on breaking this down into separate components so that everyone can use these components, but for now... everything is in a single "JoomlaCloner" package.  (If anyone wants to help out or let me know the easiest way to do it, let me know!)

WORKFLOW:

    * Visitor selects top-level RSG2 albums (Categories) to see available users
    * Visitor clicks on a user's thumbnail and is taken directly to that user's CB profile
    * On the CB profile page, we now have the RSG2 CB tab with lightbox scripting (This prevents someone from needing to click 4 or 5 times to see a full-size image.  Very slick.)

COMPONENTS:

    * Joomla 1.0.15
    * JACL Plus
    * Community Builder 1.1
    * RSGallery2 1.0.14
    * RSGallery2 Searchbot

CUSTOMIZATIONS:

    * Users only see THEIR albums in the drop-down form (frontend)
    * Links to CB profile from sub-gallery
    * Top-level hidden
    * Lightbox on CB profile; limited to 600px
    * CB profile links to PM software (UddeIM)
    * "Edit Galleries" link hidden on CB tab
    * AEC Micro-Integration ($$$) **CORE**
    * JACL-Friendly
    * CB User Lists
    * Custom "Logged Out" page

I just tried to use the Community Builder Tab-Plugin on my site and it worked very good, it just didn't displayed the gallery names with the latest SVN build.

If a user has a lot of images, all of them are displayed in this tab, this is not very useful, I would have built in a limitaton to 50 images, if I could :)

And displaying the images next to each other and not one below an other would result in a lot of more space left :D
