WARNING: These instructions refer to the new version of Ozio Gallery 5.0.0 and later.
The extension installation of Ozio Gallery comprises a component and plugins. These are loaded and activated automatically during the installation.
Ozio Gallery now consists in some skin called "Nano" and "jGallery" and "lightGallery". The skin Nano and the skin jGallery and the skin lightGallery is made in Java Script and are is also ready for viewing by mobile devices.
To use the skins "Nano" and "jGallery" and "lightGallery" is necessary to upload your images to an album in Google Photos from a personal profile. This Google service is fast, simple and free. And it's possible to create unlimited albums with unlimited images. Each new Gmail account is a new account for Google Photos. There is no need to resize the images before uploading to Google Photos, so it's highly recommended to load the images at their original size without losing time to resize them. Ozio Gallery will find the image and automatically correct the size based on the available space of the gallery on your site.
After loading the images in Google Photos you can integrate these on the Joomla site. In the component page you need to enter your "Google APIs" credentials. You can create for free your credentials from the Google API console. Create a new project, giving any name. In the list of Libraries, look for the Photos Library API simply by typing photo in the search field.
Access the management of this library and enable it by pressing the corresponding button.
In Credentials, in the "OAuth consent screen" insert the "Application name" giving any name, insert the domain name about the site with your Ozio Gallrry in the field "Authorised domains". Insert only the domain name (without http o www) and press "enter" to create the new string with the domain name, you can also indicate multiple domains. Then press the "Save" button at the bottom.
A new window opens where you need to press the "Start Authentication" blue button, in the new window you need to log in with the Google user (Gmail users only) who manages albums on Google Photos.
After selected the user you can see the message "This app has not been verified," you can ignore this message by pressing on the word "Advanced" and still pressing down "Go to ...."
On the next screen, press the "Allow" button to activate the credentials.
Create a new menu item with the component Ozio Gallery and the skin Nano or skin jGallery or skin lightGallery. In the first parameter in the Options of the menu item should specify the ID code of the Google Photos profile where the album is. You can find this number of 21 digits by the wizard accessible from the button to the right of this parameter. Select from the list the desired album and configuring the other parameters and save the menu item.
WARNING: Ozio Gallery do not support album form Google Plus, do not support Google Suite or Google Business account. Please use only by Google Photos from a Gmail account. Ozio Gallery do not support the video in Google Photos and do not support the 360° Photos..
WARNING: If in the list you don't see the new albums remember to delete your browser cache or try with different browser (Crome, firefox).
WARNING: Don't use more than 100 characters (spaces included) in the titles of the albums on Google.
So after connecting your public albums to the menu item of Ozio Gallery, you can continue to upload new images from either inside Google Photos. To quickly upload your new photos from your tablet or smartphone we suggest you to use the appropriate Google Photo APP.
Using the plugin to enter the galleries in content or form
Modifying or creating a new article appears below the Joomla editor the button "Ozio Gallery." Place your cursor in the position where you want the content displays the gallery, then press "Ozio Gallery" and select the gallery you want. Content appears in a code like this: that indicates the ID of the gallery displayed.
Warning: show only one gallery for each page.
You can enter the code of the plugin also in custom modules of Joomla, but remember to activate the "Prepare Content" option in the Basic Options params of the module. The pluing of Ozio Gallery is installed and activated automatically by installing the extension.
If you do not want to have visible menu items of the galleries that you have included in the content or modules or list you need to move these menu items to a new menu. Create a new menu which we will call such 'hidden' here we can move or create our menu items of Ozio Gallery that we want to insert in content or form or list. This menu should remain published and also the menu items should remain published. The module of this menu may not be published so as not to appear on the site giving you the possibility to use also the galleries created in the hidden menu.
Create multiple image galleries on the same site
With Ozio Gallery you can create multiple image galleries on the same site, each new menu item you create can be connected to a different album of Google.
There is also a type of menu item that displays the list of all the galleries created with the skin Nano and jGallery and lightGallery. An index with the image preview of each album, the title and other informations such as number of photos taken. Within the parameters of this menu item "Album List", you can specify which albums to show and set the thumbnail size.
For best results we recommend you create the menu item "Album List" as main menu item and the menu items of galleries as sub-menu of the list.
Album title and photo description
On menu item parameters enable "Show album name", this will display in the top bar of the album the name of the album present in Google Photos. To change this name you need to act on the page of Google Photos, go to the list of albums and save a new title for the album you are displaying in that menu item. After a few minutes in the gallery on the site will appear the new title.
For each image in the album of Google Photos may be associated a description that will appear in the gallery on the site. To enter a description is necessary to go to the album page on Google Photos, view the photo and on the top right click on "Add Caption", after a few minutes it will appear in the bottom bar on the gallery on the site.
All your images are cloud hosted and automatically scaled using hi-quality settings.
