Magento custom designed gallery with cu3er

Here is example how you can extend and reuse your own code.
I saw at cu3er site cool gallery effects and I thought why not implement it with magento.
So I used my old gallery module and add some stuff.

This module is based on Magento custom designed gallery extended with:
– /app/code/local/Inchoo/GallFront/controllers/Cu3erController.php
– /app/code/local/Inchoo/GallFront/controllers/XmlController.php
– /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/gallery/cu3er.phtml
– /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/gallery/output.phtml
– and files needed for cu3er to run in /skin/frontend/default/default/cu3er
– database tables remains the same

Main part is how you render your xml file.
That happeds in /app/code/local/Inchoo/GallFront/controllers/XmlController.php in indexAction().
Sample of xml is commented and my simple code is bellow.

Output of xml file is at:

For advanced manipulation with flash see documentation on cu3er website.
Advanced documentation for cu3er you can find on

You can try to extend gallery tables with new fields which will handle data with effects.

Final result is at
(For example you can try to use this module for category header images.)

Code is here.
Enjoy coding!

  1. Wow – this works pretty well!

    The one integration I would LOVE is if you could assign a URL to each image. Is there any easy way to do that?

    Thank you!

  2. Does it work with magento
    After I installed this extension, it shows me ”
    There has been an error processing your request

    Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons.

    Error log record number: 403747219″
    Can you tell me how to slove the problem or how to uninstalled it?
    Thank you.

  3. Thank you for providing this! It’s great timing as I recently stumbled across Cu3er and wanted to integrate it into Magento… or at least see how it looks to make sure it’s not overwhelming / distracting.
