Pierrick on Piwigo

Piwigo is the open source photo gallery for the web

New theme: Kardon

During Winter 2008/2009, galain had prepared a very nice theme kardon for Piwigo 2.0 (which was itself under preparation at this time). He had shown us the work in progress on his website. Unfortunately, since decembre 2008, galain gave absolutely no news. Of course we hope he has no problem, but it’s too bad his theme stays unpublished while he wanted it to be available, read the forum topic “galain joins Piwigo team”

Last week I’ve decided to create the kardon theme for Piwigo 2.1 based on what I could find on his demo website.

This theme is really clean, with a nice color set and detailed icons. There is another nice feature with this theme : the slideshow is improved. During slideshow, the photo is centered (vertically) on your screen.

Kardon theme

Maybe you want to see it in action on piwigo.org demo gallery?

For piwigo.org users,

1) administration > configuration > themes > add a new theme
2) install “Kardon”
3) administration > configuration > themes > installed themes
4) activate “Kardon” (and set it as default if you want)

For piwigo.com users,

1) administration > configuration > themes
2) activate “Kardon” (and set it as default if you want)

  1. Scrolling? Are you serious?

    Set overflow: hidden; to .content div.thumbnailCategory div.description
    Limit number of characters or use some other method. Scrolling in this case is lame and shows lack of basic usability.
