Gallery Picker Plugin Configuration

Default Configuration

The Gallery Picker plugin is part of Hippo's default configuration as provided by the Maven archetype. If you created your project as described in the Getting Started Trail you don't have to install anything.

See the Document Type Editor documentation for more information on the Imagelink field type provided by the Gallery Picker plugin.

Restrict Allowed Image Set Types

If your project uses multiple image set types, you can configure which ones the picker allows the authors to pick.

Due to bug HIPPLUG-1262 at the moment this feature does not work out of the box for multiple image set types. Until this bug is fixed in the plugin you can apply the following fix in your project:

Using the Console, browse to the node:

/hippo:namespaces/hippogallerypicker/imagelink/editor:templates/_default_

and add a multi-valued String property nodetypes with no values:

In the Document Type Editor select the Imagelink field. In its properties panel, under nodetypes, for each image set type click Add and enter its JCR node type (e.g. myhippoproject:imagetype).

If you leave the nodetypes property empty, then all imageset types will be available for picking.

Disable Image Upload

By default the Gallery Picker dialog provides a direct upload option through which authors can upload an image from their local system to the content repository and directly insert it in the document being edited.

This option can be disabled by setting the boolean property enable.upload on the node /hippo:namespaces/hippogallerypicker/imagelink/editor:templates/_default_/root to false using the Console:

/hippo:namespaces/hippogallerypicker/imagelink/editor:templates/_default_/root [frontend:plugin]
  - enable.upload = false [boolean]
