I only started using Silverstripe about a week ago, and it's gone pretty smoothly so far, so I'm astonished (and somewhat embarrased) that I can't figure out how to use the gallery module.

I've followed the documentation, installed it, got all of the tabs and things up and running, but just don't seem to be able to do the final bit.


- Added an extension, selected filetype and uploaded a default icon
- Ticked the extension in the list, and pressed "save"
- Selected the folder to show the images from, under the "files" tab

Erm.. then what?

All help gratefully recieved.

Testing with IE perhaps is going i think is a ticket open, the other way you upload Files via a php fileuploader and then you must set chmod 777 , in the silverstripe you must go to files and first view the files in sst filemanager, then you can see and put in your site in the browser!!!

i hope these will help!!

Thanks, stooni.

I've uploaded the pictures, but how do I actually get the Gallery onto the page?

Open in the sst the filemanager and view are the files are there???

then you can get in the sst site , you must have installed the Gallery (v0.2.2)
1. dont forget the /db/build/?flush=1 and the /?flush=1
then you become a folder for the Gallery put the pictures in there and create a Gallery Site in the sst!!!

Hi stooni

Yes, I can see the images in the "files & images" tab.

I select the Extension and click save.

When I go back to my GalleryPage, and click on the "files" tab, I select the folder that the images are in.

I've attached screen grabs.

I'm very grateful to you for your help and patience.

Kind regards
