My Gallery

For several months I've thought about adding a gallery to johncstark.com. On several different occasions I looked at the extensions on Joomla for integrating a gallery into my Joomla CMS.


I tried installing a couple different galleries; however, I ended upĂ‚ choosing Gallery2. There is a bridge that integrates Gallery2 with Joomla which simiplifies some of the administration of the site. Installing Gallery2 wasn't extremely easy; however, I've been learning a lot in the process of working on johncstark.com which helped.


Right now the gallery is up and running but I've made it available only to those with a valid user name and password. I still have a lot of things to learn about incorporating a gallery into my CMS website. I also need to do some work on learning how to modify CMS templates.
