I’m very interested in buying your script, I just read before you were working in Version 2. Is it ready ?
Thank you for response.
v2 is ready but will probably be distributed outside of codecanyon (so for example I can give people developers license – for multiple uses). I’m just working on the docs and sales site, send me an email via my profile page if you’re interested and I’ll send you more info.
Hello, can you send me the V2 test version or where? regards
send me an email via my profile page if you’re interested and I’ll send you more info.
Just sent you an email with details
Is it possible to set the crop position of the thumbs. Looking to make them top center if possible.
Thanks for buying!
Please replace line 412 of dead_simple_gallery.php:
$dst_y = round( - ($dst_h - $box_height ) / 2 );
$dst_y = 0;
Let me know if it helps!
Worked perfect. Thank you.
Happy to help. Thank you for a nice review
Quick question Ihave chmod the fiels but I still get
Writing to file failed.
Any idea ?
Hi, perhaps the owner of files/directory is different. Once I saw a misconfigured server where files uploaded by FTP had different owner than these created by PHP. May be that.
Please let me know if it doesn’t help
gallery not bootstrap responsive
THE image gallery is NOT resizing I can make bootstrap column rows that resize easy BUT I do NOT – repeat do know how to get this code into those four rows so they will make columns
Dead Simple Gallery works very well with Bootstrap (I’m using it on countless Bootstrap based websites). I’ve sent you an example on Monday, please check your email – perhaps it landed in spam folder. The URL that you are sending here is not working at the moment.
If you can’t get the examples I’ve sent to work, then I can help you and explain everything, but we need to do that via Skype or any other messaging app, because I need to explain how bootstrap works – because I think that is your biggest challenge. Converting that to Dead Simple Gallery will be super easy.
Hope this helps
Ok I’ve prepared one more example for you (and updated previous ones a bit so they should be easier to understand). Here’s an example of one gallery split into columns:
Perhaps this is what you are looking for, but it’s not a usual way of doing galleries with Bootstrap. But hey – you want it – you’ve got it!
Here are all the files used in this example (you only need to put dead_simple_gallery.php in the folder – I’ve removed it so I can share this example inside the comments on Codecanyon)
I hope this helps. If it’s not what you were looking for then I would need an example in pure bootstrap from you + info on what you want to achieve. Then I can help you transfer that to Dead Simple Gallery, otherwise it’s a lot of guessing on my side
Please let me know if this is the thing you were looking for.
// create thumbnails by scaling instead of cropping
$dsg_thumb_operation = 'scale';
<?php include 'dead_simple_gallery.php'; ?>
You can read more on this in the documentation (located in documentation/index.html in your ZIP file).
Inside demos folder (in zip file) there is multilevel_galleries_demo.php file which shows how multilevel galleries could be approached.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
thanks—I found the scale thumbnail after posting the question.
The multilevel galleries won’t work for me – I have multiple subdirectories with many images. I need a folder icon to click which would open the subdirectory – i.e. navigation into and out of the subdirectories with only images in the current directory shown.
... just a request, perhaps for a future version.
I need to increase z-index, I have a drop down that is coming above your gallery images and fancybox. Can you please tell me where in the css/code to increase the z-index to make it come above my website please.
Fancybox is added just as an example of integrating ligjhtbox scripts (and is not a part of Dead Simple Gallery), so probably you should ask the Fancybox author about this
But on the other hand – fixing should be fairly simple to do. I would try to edit Fancybox CSS file (probably jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.css if you are using the one I included with the demos). In there try to find all occurrences of “z-index” property (I counted 10).
You need to change these “z-index” values to a value that is larger than your navigation z-index (I can’t tell you exactly without seeing your code).
Also please notice that these “z-index” values are something like: 1001, 1003, 1002 and similar. So when you are changing them make sure you change them all accordingly without messing their order. This should look something like:
1001 to 5001
1004 to 5004
1002 to 5002
Again – can’t promise that 5001, etc will be a solution, because you need to check z-index of your navigation (let’s say its 6000), and then change all fancybox z-indexes to a larger value set (e.g. 7001, 7003, 7002, etc).
Hope this helps a bit.
That was fast, thank you… navigation is at 100 or 500 I’ll look again, I’m familiar with how it works. Just wanted to see if you had insight before I started diving in. thanks again. I’ll keep you posted on progress
Worked perfectly, and it was lightbox, not fancy box that I was using. Same concept to fix it. Thanks for your help
Yay! I’m glad I could help

Will this work with animated GIF’s?
Not at the moment sorry. This is a tricky thing
It’s possible pagination? Thanks
Used this for quite some time now, awesome and simple, thank you! I
‘m curious though, is there a way to point the folder path to a http link. I want to be able to use a path to Google drive folder. i have a ID link. Would be amazing to get a gallery where i can have it pointing to a cloud source/folder. Thanks!
It would be nice a functionality, but probably also quite complex one. I might make an attempt at it somewhere in the future, but can’t promise
I just purchased Version 2 of the DSG. However, I seem to be having a problem in that the Thumbnail images are such are not working properly. Here is the URL for you to see what I mean: http://customers.dbycm.com/Visionary/gallery.php Please advise. Thanks!
I’ve replied to your emails, please let me know if you need further assistance
Hey! Yes, everything works PERFECT! Thank you again!
Looks like I have a js conflict that I’m not sure how to resolve. Shows thumbs correctly but on click causes new tab instead of shown in lightbox. Thanks
TypeError: $(...).lightBox is not a function
perhaps you didn’t include lightbox script (and/or jQuery)?
Thank you – for good script. Is it possible to install a navigation? My gallery has over 10,000 images. 100 per page would be ok? Thanks for support
Pagination is included in Dead Simple Gallery v2 which for now is only available here: https://gum.co/dsg_v2
As for the number of images – when using pagination Dead Simple Gallery v2 only processes images for current pagination page (in mentioned case it would be 100). Would that be a lot? Perhaps, it really depends on image sizes – Dead Simple Gallery would have to generate all 100 thumbnails and previews (so 200 images in total) within 30 seconds (it’s how much a script is allowed to run on a web server, please mind that some servers have a different time allowance for scripts). On the bright side, since DSG uses caching – each image would have to be processed only once.
Please let me know if you have further questions
Hello, this is exactly what I need. do I cancel my purchased version? then I will buy version. 2 Thanks for your answer!
I’ve checked Envato refund rules and they probably won’t issue a refund. However I can give you a discount on DSG v2. Just email me via my profile page.
if you need more advanced things (like pagination in the gallery) I’ve officially released Dead Simple Gallery v2 here: http://deadsimplegallery.com
Hello There, do you offer customized installation service?
yes I do offer customized installation service at additional price if needed, please contact me via my profile page form if you’d like to discuss details.
Thank you for your reply. I will prepare on my side and contact you later. Have a nice day. Victor
thanks for the Script! Working great!
We have a Project, in which a user loads images into a folder per ftp. So your script is exactly what we were looking for.
Now – the images are named from 1 to something. Could be 400…
The thing is – we need the “latest” images on start – not the first ones.
Is there a possibility to desc or asc the sort order?
Thanks in advance!
please edit dead_simple_gallery.php and on line 291 where it says sort($image_files); change sort to rsort.
Hope this helps
Perfect! It works as it should!
Thank you very much for your Help and Quick reply!
I’m glad it helped!
Btw. In some occasions this may work better:
This treats file names as numbers. Please check which solution gives you a better result, as it may vary depending on the server and your naming scheme.
works both for me. Thanks again for your help!
One off topic Question: Do you have an idea how the “loading” of the images could be faster/optimized? For now, all of them get displayed/rendered at once. I have my installation locally on my machine. 30 Images took about 10seconds. If the user uploads 400 images I can imagine that there will be a long waiting time…
I implemented it with lightSlider. But of course, the Slider is waiting for the images – so the loader of the slider is obsolete.
Do you have ideas? Maybe pagination – 1-50 … 51-100 … 101-150 – for example.
Pagination is probably the easiest option, if you’d like to go that route I recommend v2 of Dead Simple Gallery that supports pagination, it’s available at http://deadsimplegallery.com
Give me a shout via my profile page https://codecanyon.net/user/Devoth and I’ll hook you up with a discount
Thanks! Did a shout…
Just sent you a discount code, please check your inbox
In DSG v2 you need to do the same sort magic, just this time on line 388.
Ok – thank you very much – just did the update and the pagination. I will look into it!!!
Seems to work quite good!
