Fancy Image Gallery

What is it?

Image Gallery for Wolf CMS with Jquery FancyBox plugin for effects.
Current version is 0.9.2 (Wolf 0.7.0+)

Website: Project 79

What can it do?

  1. Create thumbnails from images by just typing the name of the folder that contains images eg. myfolder/ (all done from backend)
  2. Display your gallery with simple <?php fancy('myfolder/'); ?> function in body part of page
  3. Display collection of galleries with thumbs as links


<?php fancy_parent('myfolder/', 'gallery/first-gallery/'); ?>

This will show the first thumbnail from “myfolder” and link it like this “http://mysite.com/gallery/first-gallery”

If you want (and I assume you do) to show more then one gallery, you can display it like this:

<?php fancy_parent('myfolder/', 'gallery/first-gallery/'); ?>
<?php fancy_parent('myfolder2/', 'gallery/second-gallery/'); ?>

Or use fancy_list function. For slider funcionality use fancy_slider with additional arguments.

This is tested with more than 10 galleries, and works with no problem, but I think you’ll should not have problems with even more.


  1. Unzip “fancyimagegallery.zip” into wolf/plugins/ directory
  2. Login to your backend
  3. Go to Administration and enable the plugin
  4. Read the Documentation page to see what else you need to do to set up whole gallery


After enabling the plugin, you’ll find all necessary documentation under “Fancy Image Gallery” tab. Read it before you start using the gallery.

This plugin is tested and works without any problems.
Please read the documentation before starting to do anything.
If you bump into trouble with it, post an e-mail or post on Wolf’s forum under Third-party / User contributed Plugins.
