We want to tell thanks for all our translators, who have helped us to accomplish the translation of the component and always help us with the transition of new constants. We appreciate very much your work!

The most interesting thing is the installation method of language packs. To install a new language, you need to push the button "Languages", in the opened modal window you have to choose your language… That's all, it's done! Isn't cool that?

Load new languages for Joomla Gallery

One Click Language Installation

You don't need to download the additional files, all is available in the administrative panel of the Gallery.

We're really proud of the Language Uploader, it gives accent to our team style, which creates not only the functional components, but also very beautiful and easy to use.

More details about Language Translation, Installation, New Language Request you can find here: Localization and Translation.

Links for categories

Yes, we did it, now each Gallery category has own link. The link generates from the name of the category, but we have also added the field “Alias”, which will allow you to create a link by yourself.

Search Engine Friendly urls and Balbooa's Joomla Gallery

Essentially, the working method is similar to the links for pictures in a modal window. We want to turn your attention, links available for classic Gallery layout and for Album Mode.

Thumbnails for Random Grid Layout

How you can know, Random Grid Layout is the only the 1 layout of the Gallery, that displays original images and don't cropping them.

Random Grid Layout don't have generated a thumbnails, was displayed the original images files.

It was a punch item here. Such functions as Image Quality and Lazy Load, which accelerate the gallery, wasn't available for Random Grid Layout, because those options requires thumbnails.

In the new version of the Gallery component, all functions are available and don't worry because thumbnails with Random Grid Layout are not cropped!
