UPDATE! My first upload came frome the wrong local typo3-installation and was incomplete and unfinished, so it didnt work. Please update through TER and check the new version. My Apologies!

Current state of this document

This is a draft which must be full of error because I am f*?#!ng tired. Please correct me... I removed the draft state. Because i think the doc now says everything it should. I choose to not use the OpenOffice document as documentation because I am often pissed by the structure (or the lack of) of extension-documentation which uses the template. I will put a simple link into that and wait for people who explain to me why going this way is bad :) I just realized that there are templates to be used in ext manuals in this wiki. I will check that out.

Galleriffic by Trent Foley wrapped into a Typo3-Extension

This extension adds jquery galleriffic as a content element to typo3.

All credits regarding jquery.galleriffic.js itself got to Trent Foley (,! My work is the Typo3-Extension which makes Galleriffic easily useable within Typo3.

After MANY years of making websites with typo3 this is my first major contribution to the community. I am ashamed. ;-)



  • Search the TER for jvb_galleriffic and install it
  • Include the static template jvb_galleriffic into your template. Since version 0.0.2 there is galleriy (another nice jquery gallery: ) aswell.
  • If you dont include jquery in any other way got to constant editor/jvb_galleriffic and switch on "jvb.galleriffic.includeJQuery" and "jvb.galleriffic.wrapInDocumentReadyFunction"
  • Put lib.jvb.galleriffic.include1 and lib.jvb.galleriffic.include2 into an appropriate position in your page.headerData (Example: page.headerData.123 < lib.jvb.galleriffic.include2) and let these constants switched of. Please excuse this small usability fault. I am waiting for issue #19693 on ( to be resolved and will add the appropriate code to my ext if this is ready. Will it be resolved in Typo3 4.3?
  • Tune the other params to your needs (see


  • Go to the page where you want your cool gallery and add a new content element. If you use the newContentElementWizard you will find galleriffic right on top with text, images etc.,
  • Add pics, alt-text, caption, title as you are used to. Only the longDescUrl field is used in another way then in normal images: It holds the text which is shown below the title of the image in galleriffic. I was to lazy to add another field to tt_content and thought its cool to not bloat it any further as well
  • save and open the frontend
  • There it is...


  • I think I will add more static templates which include alternative jquery gallery scripts like galleria
  • I think it would be better if galleriffic and galleria where two seperate extensions. What do you think?
  • Code tuning.
  • Include prettier css presets.

Known Issues

The original version of jquery.galleriffic.js does not work with <base>-tag set, which mandatory when realURL or coolURI is used. So use my patched version included in this ext . I mostly implemented the things described by Schwarzesocke at forums plus some further things.

UPDATE! My first upload came frome the wrong local typo3-installation and was incomplete and unfinished, so it didnt work. Please update through TER and check the new version.


0.0.2 - First working version. At leas I hope so. It works in my local installation. 0.0.1 - The first Uploaded version. This was screwed up.
