ImageFlow for Silverstripe has arrived!

This module implements the ImageFlow picture gallery for Silverstripe CMS.

 

 

 

 

 

ImageFlow has been created by Finn Rudolf (http://finnrudolph.de/ImageFlow).

Silverstripe module:

The module itself is distributed under a BSD license though. Feel free to download the silverstripe module from here: CustomImageFlowPage.0.1.zip

Installation procedure in brief:

  • Copy the module wherever you like in your source tree (typically down below "mysite") and unzip it.
  • Run /dev/build?flush=all and ... * you are ready to create a "CustomImageFlowPage" within the cms!
  • After saving the customized page for the 1st time - the configuration parameters for the gallery appears (usual behavior).
  • Specify a CMS folder where your images are available (different image sizes do not matter),
  • if you would like to have transparent shades, you need to ensure, images are *.png files - (reflectionPNG = true),
  • if you would like to have a customized background, you need to change the underlying css...
  • Configuration parameters are pretty self explanatory

Important note:

In order to get the shading mechanism to work, you need to copy reflect2.php and reflect3.php into your web-root directory! Otherwise you won't get images with shading. Both scripts are included in the zip in a sub directory called 'imageflow'. -- enjoy --

Feedback, suggestions, etc... welcome -- enjoy!

See the module in action on this site - /info/projects for example.
