Image Gallery Suggestions for Self-Hosted Site

Recommended Posts

Good Day All,

 

Yes, IPS and its built-in image gallery has spoiled me!

 

I am setting up a self-hosted site that does not have any sort of image gallery add-on with it. I really don't want to go back to using an image hosting site that I do not control (such as nickpic or imgbb). I used to love IMGUR but no more!

 

Does anyone have experience with an image gallery that I can add? Or, do any of you have recommendations. I have been looking at Piwigo because it is one of the apps that Softaculous offers.

 

Features:

  • Village Idiot Simple to use.
  • Being able to theme it is a plus (another reason I'm looking at Piwigo).
  • User friendly (some of my users are more tech challenged than I am).
  • Robust backend so I can limit what can be uploaded (size, etc.).

Thanks for your help!

I assume you want the gallery to integrate with your forum? What's the forum software you're using? Has there been any you tried but you didn't like?

This site will be on Gaia. Before that, I had SimpleGallery Pro on SMF for it.

From my googling, I feel like piwigo is the way to go. I'm not sure about how easy the customizations are though. You're the best judge of that.

 

I think coppermine is a bit of a stalwart. It seems to have the same kind of process as piwigo.

 

Keep in mind that I'm pretty sure that, without bridging, users need to register to use whatever gallery you use. So once for your forum and again for your gallery.

Thank you! Meant to reply sooner! I think I'll try Piwigo and will post a review here if it works out for us.
