Gallery improvements for DOCman and FILEman - Sneak Peek

In the past months the team has been hard at work on DOCman 3.1 and FILEman 3.1. Here is a sneak peek of two of the great new features that you can expect.

In the next release the documents module in DOCman and the files module in FILEman will ship with a great new gallery layout.

It provides similar gallery functionality to component gallery layouts such as the lightbox modal with Zoom In/Out, Toggle Full Screen, and Download features.

You will be able to select the gallery layout through the Layout setting in your module configuration.

Custom Layouts

Both modules are also getting support for custom layouts. Developers will be able to include custom layouts or override an existing layout in their templates.

In the screenshot above you see a new album.html layout added through an override in the protostar template.

This is just one of the many features that are coming in our next releases. Stay tuned for more news!
