I am super new to Revolution and am struggling getting used to how different it is when compared to Evo. I am pretty comfortable with jQuery galleries and using MaxiGallery...
I used the Package Management system to download and install Gallery.
I guess the docs are here: http://svn.modxcms.com/docs/display/ADDON/Gallery
Gallery is a dynamic Gallery Extra for MODx Revolution. It allows you to quickly and easily put up galleries of images, sort them, tag them, and display them in a myriad of ways in the front-end of your site.
But a first look seems like this is not so simple?
Jumping in I created a new resource and added the basic snippet call (as shown in the first Usage example) and nothing happens? OK...
It would be great if some basic background/steps on how this works is presented.
* Does Gallery work via the front end or the Manager?
* Where do the photos and album folders go?
* How you get images into a gallery?
* Does it generate thumbnails automatically?
* Is there some kind of front end or AJAx uploading system to add photos?
* How do you begin with a basic test gallery?
The documentation page has a lot of links and settings info. What I think would be great for new users is a "Here are the six basic steps to begin creating a photo gallery
Is there a basic call that gets this to work? For example adding the most basic MaxiGallery snippet call on an Evo page activates the system and you begin adding pics at once.
Any chance there is a video that illustrates this Gallery system?
