Views Gallery 6.x-2.0-beta2 Description
Description: This module pulls together the techniques Jeff Eaton outlined in http://www.lullabot.com/articles/photo-galleries-views-attach to automatically create a simple gallery where each gallery is a node with an embedded view of images that were assigned to that gallery. The module creates the content types, sets up the imagecache presets, creates the default gallery view that is embedded into the gallery nodes by Views Attach, and adds css to make it all look nice.
This technique also works well to create individual image galleries for Organic Groups, since the gallery and image content types can be configured as group nodes. Views Gallery OG, included in this package, provides a setup page to make it easy to automatically create a gallery for every group and adds group context to the forms wherever possible so the right groups and group galleries are pre-selected when you create gallery images.
This module is mostly a bit of glue around numerous other Drupal modules. It is a perfect example of something the Features module was designed to do, and it is being reworked as a Feature instead of using custom .install code. All new development will be on the Features version. The versions are:
* The 6.1 branch is the original code, which does not use the Features module.
* The 6.2 branch is the new code, which requires Features, Strongarm, and CTools.
This module is intended to be a lightweight gallery solution with a simple feature set that you can tweak using the CCK and Views UI and some custom css in your theme. If you want a robust gallery with advanced features, this is probably not the right module to use. If you need a quick and simple gallery solution built on modules you are likely to use elsewhere, this may be a good fit.
The following modules provide the nuts and bolts for this to work. It is a long list of modules, but there is little or nothing you need to do except make sure the latest versions of all these modules are available when you install Views Gallery and everything will be installed and configured for you.
After all the modules are installed, find the new, empty 'Gallery' node created by the module and start adding photos to it, or go to 'Create content' and choose to create a new 'Gallery'. The gallery nodes will have a 'Add new image' link on them, and images will have a link back to the gallery they belong to.
