G3Client

Description

G3Client embedds Gallery3 resources (albums, photos) into a WordPress posting or page.
It requires the following software available on the server:

  • PHP 5 (tested with 5.3, recommended)
  • WordPress 3 (tested with 3.0.5)
  • Gallery3 with REST API (tested with Gallery3 3.0.1)
  • PHP CURL Extension or HTTP_Request2 (http://pear.php.net/package/HTTP_Request2/)

Screenshots

  • The preferences page
  • The embedded gallery created by G3Client (default style sheet)
  • Embedded gallery showing an album containing an album and photos
  • Full image view using the lightbox (fancybox)

Installation

  1. Upload g3client.zip to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Unzip g3client-VERSION.zip
  3. Install and activate G3Client in the plugin manager
  4. Make sure you’ve enabled the rest api in Gallery3
  5. Open Settings -> G3Client
  6. Set the Gallery3 api settings (api base url and api key)
  7. Save the settings. G3Client checks the connection to Gallery3, if you don’t see an error
    message, G3Client should work
  8. Add the shortcode to a post/page: [g3client]

You can easily modify the default style sheet, it is located in /wp-content/plugins/g3client/css/.

There is also the possibility to load a user defined style sheet (see the option page for details).

FAQ
