The Coppermine Gallery Random Images Module is a very simple extension to configure and use. The following guide should be useful if you have any questions about this extensions settings.

Basic Options:
  • Coppermine Domain - The domain on which you have Coppermine Gallery installed. This is useful if your Coppermine installation is on a subdomain or a separate domain all together. If coppermine is on the same domain as your Joomla install you may leave this field blank.
  • Coppermine Install Location - This is the location where coppermine is installed relative to your Joomla installation. So for instance if Coppermine Gallery is installed in a subfolder of your Joomla installation named gallery, this setting would be 'gallery' (without the apostrophes of course). If Coppermine Gallery is the root of your site leave this field empty.
  • Albums Upload Location - Location of your uploaded albums within Coppermine Gallery. The default location for Coppermine is 'albums'. If you are saving your images to the userpics folder this setting should still be 'albums'.

Database Configuration:

** Note **
The external database settings are not required if your Coppermine Gallery tables are in the same database as your Joomla tables.
  • Database Connection - Specify whether or not to use the Joomla database or an external database. External databases may reside on the same server as your Joomla database.
