c15e9178 18Installation Instructions
19-------------------------
57ec06e3 20
c15e9178 211. Install Gallery 2.1 and Drupal 4.7 (see their respective installation
22 documents).
23
7f21438b 24 ***Warning*** - Do not name your Gallery2 directory "gallery", call it something else
c15e9178 25 (eg "gallery2"). Calling it "gallery" will cause a conflict with the Drupal gallery.module
26 as Drupal assumes that http://www.example.com/gallery refers to the Drupal module.
57ec06e3 27
c15e9178 282. Ensure that "Image Block" and "Image Frame" modules are installed and activated in Gallery2.
7f21438b 29 Check them in the non-embedded Gallery. See
30 http://codex.gallery2.org/index.php/Gallery2:Download for instructions to download it
c15e9178 31 if it was not included in your installation.
57ec06e3 32
7f21438b 333. Log out of Gallery2 (non-embedded) - people have reported errors relating to sessions if this
34 is not done.
57ec06e3 35
c15e9178 364. Copy the entire gallery module directory to your drupal modules/ directory.
744ff82b 37
c15e9178 385. Enable the gallery module in administer -> modules in your drupal
39 installation.
744ff82b 40
c15e9178 416. Go to administer -> settings -> gallery and enter the URI of Gallery2.
c79b40e9 42 Leave "autodetect" selected and click "Save configuration". A series of tests will run to check
43 if everything is OK. There is a HELP link.
744ff82b 44
c15e9178 457. Enable the "Gallery Block" in administer -> blocks, and optionally the "Gallery Navigation"
55260521 46 block and the "Gallery Grid Block".

c15e9178 48Optional Steps
49--------------
c15e9178 50
7f21438b 51 1. Sidebar. Go to your Gallery2 site admin and include the blocks you want in the sidebar
52 (under Themes). I use "Item Actions" and "Album Quick Links (DHTML)". To use
53 the latter you need to have installed the Album Select module.
744ff82b 54
7f21438b 55 2. URL Rewrite.
005a5769 56
7f21438b 57 3. g2image. If you install g2image http://g2image.steffensenfamily.com as either a standalone or
005a5769 58 TinyMCE plugin you will have an excellent image chooser for Drupal/Gallery2. The
c79b40e9 59 configuration is automatic when you hit the "Save configuration' button on the gallery
60 settings page.
