IsoGallery is gallery plugin that combines Isotope and strip.js to provide filterable galleries.

Installation

Install by adding this plugin to your project either at http://octobercms.com/plugins or in the settings/updates/install plugins section of your OctoberCMS Backend.

Dependencies

  • jQuery >= 1.11.3 (might work with previous versions, not tested)

Usage

Just inject the component into your webpage and you are good to go.

Customization

Layout

IsoGallery uses a default layout (greenish) which injects CSS through the controller. If you don't want this, you can uncheck this option in the component settings.

Javascript Filtering

IsoGallery filters galleries through a JS function that is injected through the controller. If you want to use your own function, you can uncheck this option in the component settings.

StripJS

IsoGallery uses strip.js for the lightbox functionality. If you already have strip implemented on your website, of if you want to use a different Lightbox plugin you can uncheck this option in the component settings.

Isotope

IsoGallery filters and places the galleries with Isotope. If you already have Isotope implemented on your website, you can uncheck this option in the component settings.

Filterable Galleries! (front-end)

Note

As of 1.0.2 the validation on the categories relation has been removed. This is due to a bug in the core of october. Preferred choice of action is to create a gallery WITHOUT categories, and then UPDATE said gallery to prevent any weird errors.

Critical Bugs / Errors

If you encounter any critical errors during usage, please let me know as soon as possible! I'll try to respond within the day. Let me know on the forums or on github.
