Please not that cmsplugin_gallery_filer requires:


  1. pip install cmsplugin_gallery_filer
  2. Add 'cmsplugin_gallery' to INSTALLED_APPS (if necessary)
  3. Run syncdb or migrate cmsplugin_gallery if using South


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
