Allows configuring a fullscreen background slideshow as a gallery widget

The dmWidgetGalleryBackgroundPlugin packages a Diem front widget for displaying image galleries.

It allows to build image galleries and slideshows without writing a line of code. Images are sortable, commentable and linkable. The plugin is fully extensible.


  • In a console, from your project root dir, run:
git clone git://github.com/diem-project/dmWidgetGalleryBackgroundPlugin.git plugins/dmWidgetGalleryBackgroundPlugin  
  • In config/ProjectConfiguration.class.php, add dmWidgetGalleryBackgroundPlugin to the list of enabled plugins:
class ProjectConfiguration extends dmProjectConfiguration
  public function setup()  
      // your enabled plugins  
  • In a console, from your project root dir, run:
php symfony dm:setup  

Just open the front tool bar "Add" menu, and drag&drop a gallery somewhere on your site.

gallery dialog

Open the MEDIA right panel, then drag&drop images into gallery dialog.
You can set an alt attribute to each image.
To add a link to an image, you can :

  • drag&drop a link to the field from the left PAGES panel
  • write a full url to another site

Here you can choose the width and height of the gallery. A resize method and JPG quality is proposed, exactly like for the Media Widget.

Here you can specify the transitions interval and effect duration. You can also enable / disable the slideshow controls.

By default the gallery is animated with a standart slideshow with elegant fading.
If you want to change the javascript treatment of the gallery, set the animation to "Custom". Then, in


create a $.dm.customGallery($gallery, options) function to handle the gallery treatment:


  function $.dm.customGallery($gallery, options)  
    // do something with the $gallery jQuery object  


Delay in seconds between transitions.
Leave empty to disable transitions.

As usual, you can set one or many CSS classes to the widget.
