Creator and Lead Developer
"An excellent product"

and probably best of any gallery app"

"A really beautiful implementation"
- cedrox, Paris
Gallery Server Pro is created by Tech Info
Systems, an Independent Software Vendor in Fort Atkinson, WI, USA
We are currently developing a module for a client and we are considering using your module. We want to purchase Enterprise version because we need some customization on the code. This development will be done on our own development server before being ported to client's production server?
Will we 2 separate licenses in this case? 1 for development server and 1 for the actual production server? Or just 1 license is sufficient since the module will only be deployed on 1 server eventually.
A: One license is sufficient.
Q: Hi Martin,
We have DotNetNuke 6.1.5 installed on Azure. If we installed the Gallery Server Pro module on the Azure instance of Dnn would all the features work as normal?
Answer: Do you mean the storage of media files in Azure or running the entire DNN web app in Azure? Regards, Roger Martin
Question: Hi there, Please could you let me know if the Gallery Server Pro 2.6.1 module is compatible with Windows Azure? Many thanks, Vivien
A: I don't know much about Azure so I can't answer with certainty. However, if you are able to run the regular version of DNN on Azure, then I would assume you can run the GSP module as well.
Q: Hi there,
Please could you let me know if the Gallery Server Pro 2.6.1 module is compatible with Windows Azure?
A: Do you mean the storage of media files in Azure or running the entire DNN web app in Azure?
Q: What GSP version is available for DNN
A: The latest version of GSP is 2.6.1, and it is available as a DNN module as well as the stand-alone open source version.
Q: Can you tell me as is if it is possible and how complex is it to allow registered users to create an album and upload content to it.
I am assuming it will work on DNN V6.X.X
A: It is very easy. Just go to the Manage Roles page in the Gallery Server Pro admin area (click site admin from the Actions menu) and give the registered users role the desired permissions.
Q: I noticed that version 3.0 of the standalone Gallery Server Pro product is expected out sometime this year. How much longer after that will it be before we can expect version 3.0 of the DNN module?
Also, if we purchase the DNN module now, will the version 3.0 upgrade be included in our purchase? Or will there be any kind of discount?
A: I generally try to release the DNN version at the same time as the stand-alone one. I hope to do that for 3.0, but it is such a big release that there may be some delay. It's too early to say.
I have always offered significant discounts for upgrades and will do so again for v3. Plus, I am running a 50% discount right now for the current version, so this is a good time to save.
Q: Is enterprise version able to apply for multi domain?
A: From the license:
One Production License is required to install and use the Software Product on each DotNetNuke installation, A DNN installation is defined as a single DNN database which can host multiple child portals. These portals may have their own unique web addresses, but they are managed from a single DNN host, you must purchase additional Production License for each extra DNN installation.
Since the only advantage of the enterprise version is that it comes with the source code, you only need to buy a professional license for each additional domain.
Q: Does the Gallery Server Pro module use the folder provider model in DNN 6 to handle the uploading and displaying of media objects?
A: No, it does not.
Q: I am looking for a gallery module where site visitors can use Pinterest to tag my photos. Pintrest is really huge now and we want people with the Pintrest plugin on their web browsers to tag our photos. Also, we would like people to be able to like our photos to facebook & Google +.
Does this module support that? If so, let me know where I can test it out as other module developers before told me they supported Pintrest but in the end their gallery modules did not as each picture did not have a unique URL for pintrest to be able to lock on to.
A: I don't know anything about Pinterest so I can't comment on whether it is supported, but I can tell you that each media object *is* accessible by a unique URL. I know search bots like Google can index all media items in a gallery by following the links, so maybe that is a sign Pinterest is supported, too.

I have been using GSP for about a year and there is absolutely no other media gallery that comes close to its functionality!!!
