JoomGallery for Joomla 4

  • Would it be possible to upgrade to Joomla 4, leave Joomgallery 3 installed, and then upgrade to Joomgallery 4 when it is finally released? Should this preserve all images and data?

    Yes, this works.


    You have to uninstall all JoomGallery 3 modules and plugins but keep the component. Then do the upgrade to Joomla 4.


    After upgrade, the JoomGallery views in frontend and backend will throw php errors and will not work anymore. But data is perserved.


    In the meantime you could use Joomla 4 compatible image modules or plugins to show all images of a folder. Since JoomGallery is sorting the images in folders according to the category structure you can show this way gallery views with images of a specific category.

    We are looking for volunteers for the JoomGallery 4 development!

  • Important Note

    In the meantime you could use Joomla 4 compatible image modules or plugins to show all images of a folder. Since JoomGallery is sorting the images in folders according to the category structure you can show this way gallery views with images of a specific category.

    If you do that just make sure the plugin or module does not create any additional files and folders to create the gallery views. Otherwise you will mess up the file and folder structure and you will have problems later on with your JoomGallery component!

  • It's probably too early to ask about this, since there are still trials of a JoomGallery (JG) test version for Joomla 4 ... But as we know, Joomla 5 is already announced (called "just a J4 upgrade", not a migration as was usually with earlier version changes). So what are the plans of the JG developers to adapt this extension to J5? I mainly mean the expected date, because I have no doubt that it will happen someday. Is this work already underway for the announced next stable JG version?

  • There are just some minor fixes to be done on JG4 to make it Joomla 5 compatible. I expect JG4 to run under Joomla 5 when the first release.
