Display an image gallery inside a Plone rich text area

Project description


Creating a photo album or gallery in Plone is easy, just see Create a photo album.

This products makes it possible to include a gallery in a regular page.


When editing your page’s text in the text editor, add an internal link to the folder that contains your photos (your gallery).

Go into the HTML editor by clicking the editor’s HTML button, and add a class InlinePhotoAlbum to the link.

The link will be replaced by a rendering of the gallery. This is done by javascript, so if javascript is disabled, it will just display the link.

When clicked, the photos will be displayed in an overlay.


  • Open photos in overlay
  • Batching


Add Products.InlinePhotoAlbum to your buildout.


Tested on Plone 4.
