CMSplugin Image Gallery

A Django application adding django-filer-based galleries to Django-CMS.


You need to install the following prerequisites in order to use this app:

pip install Django
pip install django-cms
pip install django-filer
pip install Pillow

If you want to install the latest stable release from PyPi:

$ pip install cmsplugin-image-gallery

If you feel adventurous and want to install the latest commit from GitHub:

$ pip install -e git://

Add image_gallery to your INSTALLED_APPS:


If you are using a Django version below 1.7, add the following setting:

    'image_gallery': 'image_gallery.south_migrations',


First create a gallery object with a filer folder and set is_published to True once you want to publish the gallery.

Using the apphook

Simply create a django-cms page and select it in the Application field of the Advanced Settings.

Using the cmsplugin

Create a CMS page with a placeholder and simply insert the plugin Filer Gallery.

Using the template tags

You can also use our template tag to display a list of pictures:

{% render_pictures %}

...for the last 3 uploaded pictures. You can use the selection parameters recent (default) and random and set an amount of pictures to display:

{% render_pictures 'random' 10 %}



Default: 10

Amount of galleries to display in the list view.



    ('default', _('Default')),
    ('teaser', _('Teaser')),

When you use the Filer Gallery plugin, you can select the gallery that should be rendered and a display type. This is useful if one and the same gallery should be rendrerd in different ways at different places on your site. The selected value will be added to the plugin template's context with the variable name {{ display_type }}.
