Getsimple Plugins

In computing, a plugin or plug-in, is a set of software components that add specific abilities to a larger software application. Plugins enable the customising of the functions of an application.

In this case plugins add extra features to the CMS under the control of the GetSimple core.

i18n Plugin

The i18n plugin adds multilanguage support and hierarchical menus to your website. The admin page for editing has been enhanced, making it easy to select the parent page and the position of the page within the site structure.

If you have a multi-level site, this is the plugin to use for your menus, whether you need it's multi-language support or not. In fact on sites where only one language is used the multi-language features can be turned off by adding a parameter to the gsconfig.php file.

child_list Plugin

The child_list Plugin displays an unordered list of either, page and child page titles on top level pages, or parent and sibling page titles on child pages, as a cached menu. This is a modified version of the child menu plugin which uses an unordered list instead of paragraphs to build a menu structure.

Note: This plugin only supports the basic URL type and the simplest fancy URL possible.

Basic URL Example: http://sitename/index.php?id=page-slug
Fancy URL Example: http://sitename/page-slug/

Imagizer Plugin

So you want to upload photos directly from your camera...  Each off camera photograph will probably have a resolution in excess of 4000px. x 4000px., leading to file sizes of greater than 3MB. If you load many of these images into your web pages, your page access times will become very, very, slow. The Imagizer plugin, processes each uploaded photo by resizing, cropping or compressing it to a predetermined size. Imagizer is a fully automatic after-upload image handler.

Too complex for you? Then try autoGallery one of the smallest and simplest gallery scripts around.

Want your gallery created automatically but you have a lot of images requiring main galleries and sub-galleries then this standalone gallery script may suit you.

Simple Directory List

Intended to produce a list of files contained in a predefined folder and its sub-folders for viewing or downloading.

Unfortunately to display the contents of sub-directories properly 'fancy URLs' must be enabled in your GetSimple installation otherwise the plugin will only work within a single folder of files.
