RIE – Random Image Extended

This module displays random images from a chosen directory.

The random images can be displayed in a so-called Lightbox view (Shadowbox, Slimbox or Milkbox). Other images from the specified folder can be displayed in this view as a gallery.

Highlights of the module are the storage of thumbnails, reading from all subfolders of the specified directory and the lightbox view of the images.


* Specify types of images – several types of images (e.g. jpg, png, gif) are possible.
* Preview images can be generated and stored. They will be loaded next time faster and have a better quality.
* All subdirectories of the specified folder can be read in – so you can display the images from other folders as well.
* The size of the thumbnails can be set in dependence of aspect ratios.
* A caption and the image name can be displayed under the images.
* The displayed image can be supplied with a link.
* For the JS and gallery view are available: Shadowbox, Slimbox and Milkbox. At a JavaScript conflict you may select an alternative.
* The remaining images in the specified folder (with subfolders if necessary) can be displayed as a gallery in the JS view. These images can also be sorted randomly.
* Language English / German
