I got tired of waiting for Community Server to combine .Text and nGallery, so I just did it myself.
- First, download and install nGallery. It wants to copy the “web” file in my Program Files, and then create a virtual directory in your site. I just copied it to my website folder and went into IIS and selected “create application”. This allows me to have all my files in one place.
- Make sure your connection string is pointing to the correct place in \data\ngallery.config.
- Now that nGallery is installed, we need to link to it from your .Text page. For this I found Peaboy which explained it quite well. The only things I changed is the place where I made my galleries show up and the css styles.
- Follow what Edo says to make your images show up. As of this writing I haven’t done that yet.
One note is that it may not show up correctly in Firefox because of the Rules=”all” that the component spits out. I spoke of this November 8th.
