How to create a new media album¶
Make sure the static template Media Gallery (fs_media_gallery) is included
If you use EXT:bootstrap_package include static template Media Gallery Theme ‘Bootstrap3’ (fs_media_gallery).
Create a “<Storage Folder>” in your page-tree that’s gonna hold your albums
Tell TYPO3 that the “<Storage Folder>” holds media albums by setting “Contains Plugin” to “MediaGalleries”
Go to Filelist and open the folder you want to turn into a album (the folder should contain some media assets like e.g. images)
In Filelist click on the Create new album in “<Storage Folder>” icon in top toolbar or use Create new album in “<Storage Folder>” from the context menu in file list
Fill out the required fields and save your new album
Insert plugin Media Album on a page
Choose a “Display mode” for instance “Selected albums (nested)” see Plugin settings
Open FE and admire your album :)
Clear cache after a folder change¶
Clearing the cache of a certain page can be set by adding the ‘TCEMAIN.clearCacheCmd’ in the pageTs of your MediaGallery storage. After a change in your folder the TCEMAIN.clearCacheCmd will be invoked and the cache of these pages will be flushed.
