Pierrick on Piwigo

Piwigo is the open source photo gallery for the web

3 new demos for Piwigo

One major criticism we receive about the presentation of Piwigo on Piwigo.com, is that you can’t clearly see what can be customized. It is unfortunate because the ability to make each Piwigo gallery unique is one of our key features! So instead of a single demo we now have 4 demos: in addition to the basic demo where you can switch from one theme to another, we have 3 “customized” demos. You can see them all on the new page for demos.

first new demo, homepage and theme Stripped

First new demo, homepage and theme Stripped

In the first new demo, we have used the theme Stripped, which has a fixed width and a 1 clic show/hide menu. This theme doesn’t show the album descriptions next to the album thumbnail so that you can see many albums at once. Plugin Additional Pages was used to create the homepage and we used the nice Zapfino font to create an elegant image banner.

Second new demo, theme "dark" and panoramic photo as banner

Second new demo, theme "dark" and panoramic photo as banner

In the second new demo, we used the theme dark, which has an elastic width (automatically stretched to fit the width of your web browser) and always displays the menubar on the left. We used a panoramic photo as banner: you will need a very large screen to see where it ends. We have added a “welcome” message thanks to PWG Stuffs plugin and a detailed “About this gallery” page thanks to Additional Pages plugin. We also used the Lightbox plugin to hide details when displaying the “web size” photo.

Third new demo, theme Gally Graphite and big thumbnails

Third new demo, theme Gally Graphite and big thumbnails

In the third new demo, we used the theme Gally Graphite (elastic width, 1 clic to show/hide menu) which offers a very “dynamic” display of your photos. We’ve decided to have big thumbnails, ie 250 pixels wide. Just like in demo2, PWG Stuffs plugin displays a welcome message.

We will add some other demos in the future, but for now it already shows you can get some different results depending on the theme, plugins and customization options you choose.
