Joomla and Simple Image Gallery Pro


The pretty photo is for those who came here hoping to find a handmade, baby or garden post and instead found this terribly dry coding post 🙂

I’ve had a few setbacks on the Joomla front and have had to spend such a long time finding solutions I’m writing them here in case they can help a few people in the future.

Firstly, Simple Image Gallery and Simple Image Gallery Pro did not work not matter what I did. I searched for ‘Simple Image Gallery not working’, ‘Simple Image Gallery only showing code’, ‘my thumbnails do not show in Simple Image Gallery’. The troubleshooting guide was telling me to check permissions and GD Libraries, all of which were ok. The solution I found buried – and I knew it would be simple; take out the spaces in the gallery code.

The demo instructions tell you to use this code: { gallery }summer_trip_to_italy{ /gallery }
In fact, you need to take out the spaces so they read {gallery}summer_trip_to_italy{/gallery}

Also, if you’re having trouble installing Simple Image Gallery or Pro – getting an error message: Error! Could not find an XML setup file in the package then you need to unzip and inside you will find two further zip files. is for Joomla 1.0 and is for Joomla 1.5.

    and I couldn’t get blogger to unitalicize half my post.

    I’ve concluded that its bloggers fault though and even a wiz like you would fall into the same trap.

    or maybe not.
