    Hi telerik,

    Could you guys, recommend me a free third party Gallery Module which is compatible with Sitefinity 3.0 (SP2)? The main requirements are:

    • - automatically create thumbnails when uploading images;
    • - allows to order images in categories;

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Hello Ines,

    The Photo Gallery module is planned for Sitefinity 3.2. Meanwhile we can provide you a link to the post in Sitefinity blog  . You could download a simple image gallery control for Sitefinity from there that is not actually a module. But you could extend its functionality to cover all your requirements.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Pepi,

    Unfortunately, I cannot wait till version 3.2. I suppose that it will be shipped at the beginning of the next year. I don't find any accurate information on the Road map section of your web site about release dates. Also, I think that extending your image gallery control is a needless overhead. Why should I do this when this is a temporary solution? If you were in my shoes would you'd lost your time in development of something temporary and then start looking for way to transfer all the information to Sitefinity Gallery? I'm not quite sure that you would answer positive. So, I may say that you do not provide me with assistance for the second time which is very unpleasant.

    However, I researched yesterday and found those free open source ASP.NET Gallery.

    Would you please tell me if I can use this module together with your application and provide me with detailed information about steps to plug in this module to it?

    Thanks a lot in advance!!!

    Hi Ines,

    In fact this gallery is a User Control. So to use it you should upload GalleryControl.ascx in your project through the Admin interface. Also you need to copy the .mdb file in App_Data folder. You could find more information about uploading controls in Users Manual, chapter ”Uploading Controls”.

    In the attachment you could find fixed version of the Gallery control because it was throwing some exceptions in Sitefinity environment.

    Hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
